Surgeon TestimonialJorge Acosta, MDMy surgery was done by Dr. Eldo Frezza. He turned out to be pretty bad. My insurance company assigned me to Dr. Acosta for follow-ups, and he is absolutely adorable. Much better care than my original surgeon, and nice looking to boot! ha ha. I feel lucky to have him!

So, I am just getting over the period from hell. Seriously. If information like this is TMI, please skip. ha ha I started my period last weekend, which gave me my two official "cheat" days, when it comes to eating. I had a miserable week the rest of the week. I stayed on track PRETTY MUCH....with a few bites of here and there that weren't on plan or the best choices. I felt like total crap. Everytime I ate ANYTHING I would get pains in my bowel area and end up running to the bathroom and promptly evacuating everything in liquid form. I know.....gross.
I had menstrual cramps, headaches, tiredness, and then had to deal with the faucet that wouldn't quit. Really? My period sometimes effects my bowel movements, for some reason, but never like this. I was starting to think I might have gotten food poisoning or had a bug. I don't think I did, however, it was just a bitch of a period.
I felt like I would at least see a nice drop on the scale. After being stalled for a few weeks, I was sure that my body was letting loose, and would see rewards on the scale, at least. I won't usually torture myself by weighing in while my period is here, so I waited until Saturday. Yep, it was a long drawn out ordeal, this time. Anyway........I got on the scale, and WOW.....could it be?? Uhhhhhh, what? 175. 175!?!?! ONE STINKING POUND GONE?
Now, I am the first to admit I am not 100% perfect with my eating. I am probably only making good choices about 80% of the time when you average the week. Some days I am perfect, others, I nibble on a few "bad" things. However, I don't go hog wild and would expect to see the scale moving a bit better than it is. So, for me, this means I need to come up with a better plan.
The cheat days didn't really ramp up my cravings. *whew* I didn't feel like a junkie looking for a fix last week. That was a relief. This past weekend I was a bit more relaxed with my eating, as my boyfriend and I went to see two different movies, and I indulged on popcorn both times, and we ate out a couple of times. I think part of me was rebelling since I didn't see a too much of a weightloss on the scale. Smart, huh? Wow, I am really showing the weightloss gods whose boss now!
Well, I am not quite sure what my plan of action will be. I know I need to get more active and really commit to the gym again. I went last night, after work. I took my buddy, AnnMarie. We worked on arms and abs. Strength training won't burn a lot of calories, but it's a start.
I am also logging my foods on MFP, even the bad days. Hopefully, I can come up with a good plan and get to my goal at some point. I would like to get to my goal of 150 by the 1st of September. There. I just challenged myself!! ha ha Have a great week everyone!!
