Okay I think I'm back. I am not gonna promise everyday blogging but I will as much as I can. Things have been super busy and I have let my life get in the way of my weight loss. I have been back in fourth in court with my ex-husband over the custody of our kids. We have a final court date on March 15th. I have temporary full custody of them until then. He still sees them every other weekend, but he don't do a damn thing for them, my kids have been sick with a virus, my husband got the virus..blah blah blah excuses and rambling. Anyway I was down 44 pounds now I am only down 34. So yea I gained 10 pounds back since December. That sucks! But I have no one to blame but myself. So I am picking my self back up. Monday I started something new. I feel like I am always hungry. I only allow myself to take portioned food to work, and I make sure I don't have change so I don't get in the vending machine. But by the afternoon I am starving so when I get home I snack the entire time I cook dinner, and I know all those little bites add up big time. So I got a appetite suppressant and fat burner medication. I only got a two week supply because I didn't know how it was going to effect my body or my mind. :) And I wanted to see if it worked.
With the pill I got a meal plan based on my weight, activity level and gender. So I have been following that. Sunday I took the time to prep my food. I measured all of my chicken and steak into 6 oz and froze them in separate freezer bags, I cut up 1 cup baggies of strawberries and stuck them in the freezer as well. I cooked a huge pot of green beans and put them in one container in my fridge for me to eat out of every day. I cooked a meat loaf for my family and made a lasagna because I know they will get tired of eating what I am eating. Everything is in order to make sure that I don't fail. Monday I started with out the pills I wanted to see if I how I felt eating on the meal plan. Yesterday I started the pills. They seem to be working really well. I don't feel jittery or like my heart is racing, nothing bad. I definably feel them giving me energy, and they are for sure suppressing my appetite. Last night at dinner I wasn't even that hungry and I didn't snack one bit while cooking dinner for my family. I drank 80 oz of water yesterday, which is really good for me. I exercised both days this week so far and I feel good about this.
I don't plan on taking these pills forever but for a few months. I felt like I needed something to jump start my weight loss and help me with appetite suppression and energy. Hopefully Monday when I weigh again I will have lost a good amount. Now some pictures:
I got my hair cut, colored and highlighted. You can't really see the color of it but I looks so good, if I don't say so myself. Here is a before and after. I'm going for the sexy teacher look in the second one...haha!!
My hubby and I on our 1 year anniversary. Yep we made it! He is the best man I have ever known.
