10 pounds lost!!!

Woo hoo!! It seems like it's going so slow but I can't remember the last time i've actually lost 10 pounds. I am so proud of myself. It's cool to actually see results. I don't really see much result from week to week but when you add it up it does show progress. I know I still have a long way to go but it's a start and I feel like i'm learning a lot.
I did really well this week. I was a little slow starting working out but I eventually picked it up and worked hard. I look forward to the weather getting better so I can actually walk outside. It will be nice when Bobby and I can go on our walks again through the park. I really enjoyed those times. I do like the consistency of the elliptical though. I can set my time and keep my speed constant. I also like that I can listen to music and read my kindle. I've been going for 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I'm going to keep increasing so next week i'll go 50 minutes a day.
Not much has happened with the other part of this journey. We were talking the other day about when I should go to talk to my doctor about fertility. I think i'm going to wait until July when i'm do for my annual check up anyway. I'd like to go earlier but I heard a story about a woman who lost a baby and had to have a c-section too. She got pregnant again and her rainbow baby burrowed through her scar in her uterus and was growing in a bubble outside of her uterus. She had to have an emergency hysterectomy. That is like my worst nightmare. I really want to have a baby but I don't want to push it too soon. I want to lose more weight and I want to heal as much as possible.
I still have small hope that I will get pregnant on our own but not much. We are doing all we can but I'm sure it will take some outside help from a doctor. I'm thinking of going to get an ovulation prediction kit for next month. My period should start today or tomorrow so I guess i'd better go sometime to get it. We will see if that helps me see my ovulation. The temperature thing just isn't working out for me.

  1. Sounds like great progress. Congratulations! I agree--it's a lot easier to be active when the weather is nice. I hope you have a great spring.
