Hey there, hi there, ho there!
Okay, so I should have restarted this blog about five months ago. BIG changes in my life ... BIG!
First, you'll notice the name of the blog is different. I am no longer trying to lose weight in order to conceive. Obviously, the reasons are personal, but we just felt like it wasn't the right time for us. So, moving on ...
I have actually found a plan that is working like gangbusters. I have been on MediFast's Take Shape For Life plan now for almost five months, and I have lost a mind-blowing 57 pounds. Yes, you read that right: FIFTY-SEVEN. I can hardly believe it myself, until I get dressed in the morning and my "skinny" pants fall right off. I still have 43 to go until I reach my goal weight, but it seems like a much more attainable weight now that over half of it is gone.
I had been doing well with exercise as well, walking at least two miles about three times a week, and I had even been incorporating some jogging in as well. Then I got appendicitis. YEOWCH. I'm about three weeks post-op, though, so I'm planning on getting back on track (pun intended) tomorrow. Don't fret, though; I will be easing back into things.
So this is a formal "hi again" and a promise to try to update this thing more often. If you're still following me, thanks for hanging out for so long!
