Don't put that in your mouth! Doughnuts are not a food group!

I had a doughnut today. Silly thing to have when you're trying to lose weight, I know. But since I haven't had one in probably six months (I don't really like doughnuts that much), I figured what the hell! It didn't taste half bad.

Two weeks drug-free, and I still feel good. Somehow I'm managing to keep my energy level up in the afternoons, even without the Adipex. Maybe it's the missing weight. It was literally dragging me down! I haven't weighed myself since my last post so I don't know if pounds have crept back on (or mysteriously disappeared), but the clothes I was wearing two weeks ago still feel the same (some loose, in fact) so I'll take that as a good sign.

I'm actually going to the grocery store tonight, so I'll weigh myself and check back in. THANK YOU to all of you who have continued to read this blog and follow my journey. I may not post as frequently as I would like, but all of your comments and well-wishes really encourage me!

163 today,

Don't put that in your mouth! You're off your meds!

Ok, I know. It's been over a month since my last post, and I'm sure noone is reading this anymore. But just in case there are still readers out there, here's my update. I'm down to 163, which is 35 pounds. Which is pretty great. I'm waffling between a size 14-16 (depends on the designer), and I'm now able to wear clothes in L instead of XL (again depends on the designer). These are 2 huge milestones for me. That's the good news.

Here's me now:

Check out what a difference 6 months makes:

Now the bad news. I finished the last round of Adipex that Ivonne gave me last week, which means I'm now in charge of my weight destiny by myself (until I go back in for more drugs, hee hee). This also means I really have to get my butt in gear. I've been doing some heavy duty "exercising" on Sunday nights but 1 day a week isn't going to cut it. Yeah, you've heard it all before. :) Every new day is a chance to make a new decision. Today I decide to eat bon-bons. Kidding. Depending on how my day shapes up, today I decide to start rollerblading again, so my Sunday night "exercise" doesn't kill me, like it almost did last night.

Wish me luck!

163 today,
