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,

Melissa

Thank you so much! I had lots of help with the Adipex. We'll see how it goes on my own. With 3 boys in the house who eat whatever and however they want, it will be a challenge!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
