SO, I only, and I mean only, gained 3 pounds over the holidays. My blood work is better, and I am losing some weight. I have a 25 pound goal right now, as I'm trying to take them in small increments. Those 3 pounds weren't bad, considering the average weight gain over the holidays to be 10-15 pounds. I only weigh at the doctor, so the 13th is the next weigh-in. I hope some weight has really dropped. I have been working out like crazy in the past week. I completed yoga, Jillian's shred DVD, and chores around the plant. I'm still working the food out. Eating clean is tricky when I don't buy the groceries.
It's amazing how much better I feel this week. I am exhausted today, but I have had more energy in general. New in town: estrogen meds. Yay! Maybe I'll get balanced out. Doc says it will be that much harder to lose weight with being Peri-menopausal, but it's not a challenge considering the weight I have to lose. That is the ultimate challenge. Here's a great video, and one that I'll be emulating.
