So I've spent the last year trying to lose some of this weight....and you know who's losing weight, my husband....and my cat, even he's lost 10 pounds. Yes, I know what you're thinking, how do I have a cat who can afford to lose 10 pounds...well in 2006, he weighed 23 pounds. He's just a Garfield, orange fur and all. He's diabetic so now he's on insulin and weight loss cat food and he's doing good! So my husband, he's down over 25 pounds which makes me angry. He still eats massive amounts of food, it's just my food so it's way healthier than what he'd normally have. Even for lunch, he comes home and eats like 3 PB and J sandwhiches...I ate that, I'd be up...I now feel like my weight is out of control again....I'm consistently at 258 all the time...I was down to 252 for a while, my low has been 259. Some days I do really good with eating, others...not so much...and sadly I'm so much more active now that if I curbed what I was eating, I'd prolly be 230 right now. But I'm heading in the right direction. A friend and I are looking into South Beach, I've had all the books for years, and we're going to do some menu planning. I'm not sure when I'll start this but I'm getting there. I'm going to the Dr. on Friday too, I haven't had a period in two months ( I know TMI) and I feel awful. In 2007, I stopped taking the pill and didn't get my period for the whole year. I ballooned from 230 to 275 in a matter of months, right before my wedding...I feel like that's what's happening now and I'm trying really hard to avoid that....hopefully the doctor will have some answers....meanwhile, I'm just going to keep plugging along and come September 21st, I'm going to shoot for 15 pounds before New Years...

I'm still here!!! I'm not even sure anyone noticed my absence but it's been two weeks since I've blogged. Life goes on....I'm still fluxuating between 252 and 258....depends on what I eat the day before....I'm still training for my bike ride. I just bought two men's xl jerseys....they don't fit...so I'm screwed....I'm hoping that because I bought them used, that they are old and therefore small and not made out of the newer stretchy material because my chest was just too big....the rest wasn't pretty either. Our gymnastics team moved again so my new schedule sucks...Monday, Tuesday and Saturday nights....so much for having a life! But the nice thing is, is that we're back at the Y so I now have access to all the equipment and a better chance of using it! I'm gearing up for September to do my ride and get back into this diet thing...I've already managed to lose 20.....I'd just like to lose a bit more! It may take me forever to get there....but this is the first time I've spent almost the entire year being consciencious about what I'm stuffing in my mouth...this is truly turning out to be a lifestlye change! Oh, and I've been reading everyone's blogs daily so I haven't completely lost touch!
