Day 162 - 23 Week Results

I’m really, really, really frustrated tonight.  I’ve been really good this week and I’m up a pound and a half this week.  I don’t understand it.  I have a good theory that it’s related to yet another new medication that I started this week.  I hate that every time I start something new, it seems like it takes a couple weeks to get used to it.  I hate that I’ve been working so hard and still gained weight this week.  I just want to hide in a corner and cry.

I’m thinking the challenge today was definitely getting past the weigh in this morning and dragging my butt to yoga when all I wanted to do was cry.  But, I did.  I went to yoga and I did an hour on the bike.  I’m going on the theory that I will keep doing what I have been doing and that it will work out in the end.  I just need to force myself to keep positive and not allow myself the pity party I really, really want.
The surprise of the day was when we had our Christmas with my MIL.  It was a really nice afternoon.  We played games on the wii for a while, had dinner, and exchanged presents.  Michael actually liked his presents and had to make a thank you call right away when he opened his furby.  My MIL gave him a bird bingo game and we actually played two games.  It was just nice.

Overall, it was a good day.  I just wish I could not obsess on the scale so I could enjoy it more.  Have any of you used prog-x cream before?  Did it affect your weight when you first started it?  Can someone tell me it’s all going to be ok?


  1. you are a great motivation for me, cousin! please hang in there. i wish i had a great quote for you, but i just have good wishes and lots of love.

  2. Thank you, Jeannie! I'm feeling better this morning. I'm not going to let the scale ruin my holiday. I've been working so hard, I refuse to give up now. I am so excited for the new year. It's going to be great, and I look forward to seeing you and your family more!
