So... here I am, finally starting to take a healthy approach to losing weight (lost over 16 lbs!). Really, really committed to exercising (have just built up to two hours per session!) Of course, I ordered a new bikini for inspiration since we are going on a cruise and then another trip to Vegas this summer.
...And then... 28 days since my last cycle... 29 days... 30... 31...?!?! So I go out and buy one of those special little tests at the local supermarket and... one pink line .... *WHEW!!*.... oh... wait... no.... can't be..... *GASP!!*.... a SECOND pink line. Unbelievable! My bad for getting off BC pills, but they were making me feel awful: migraines, light sensitivity headaches, fatigue, irritability, bloating, AND interfering with my weight loss efforts. But (I thought) my husband and I were being careful (famous last words, right?). Well, I guess I can cancel that appointment I had to get a diaphragm next week. Sigh... ironic that the on-base doctor doesn't do diaphragms (only offer the pill and IUD and that wasn't for me) so they had to give me a referral, which I had to wait to get in the mail... then schedule the appointment.
So, I guess I will have to make a different kind of appointment this week. And rethink this whole calorie thing. I hope I can maintain exercising. I was really sick with my first child and really tired all the time with my second. I even bought those special pregnancy DVDs those two times in highest hopes that I would do them. They were still in the plastic wrap when I consigned them :o( Then I get kidney [roblems in the second trimester that have me doubling over in pain. But maybe this time will be different and I will be able to stick with it, having seen what my post-pregnant body looks like and how hard I have to work to get it back to a good weight.
Or, maybe the test is wrong... who knows... lol
