Game On!

My weight back in January was 58.1 kgs or 127.8 lbs

My weight today, thankfully, was 57.2 kgs or 125.8 lbs

I have lost 2 lbs and that was WITH trying.  I have 7.8 lbs to go to get back to my "normal" weight.

So starting next week some friends and I are going to do the Game On! diet plan.  It sounds like a lot of fun.  Basically diet and exercise become a game to play.  There are teams and each day each player wins points for eating healthy, exercising, sleeping enough etc.  There are point losers as well like snacking.  Once a week the players meet up to tally the scores.  The team with the most points at the end of 4 weeks wins.  And you can decide a head of time what that prize might be.  Check out the book here.  I am really looking forward to starting it.

I remember like 10 years ago going to the doctors and wishing I could add coins or rocks to my pockets so my weight would be up, or wearing a lot of layers just to get those few extra ounces so I wouldn't get the "you need to put weight on" lecture.  Now, I wear as few layers as possible and try not to eat before I go because it makes me cringe to read the scale.  I am NOT fat by any means and I don't want people thinking I think I am fat.  As I have stated in other blog posts, I am just uncomfortable with my body and am working on it.  I want the body I had in 2006 back.

THIS body:

In other news....I had my clinic appointment today.  PFTs down a per usual.  I was 1.28L (43%) back in January after my 2 weeks of IVs and today I was 1.07L (36%). Quite the drop.  So two weeks of oral Cipro to hold me off from getting lower, and maybe even helping me rise.  And when I go back May 1st, if there is no increase it is IV time.  Which works out well as my class ends May 10th and the next semester doesn't start till the 21st so I can squeeze a hospital stay in there fine.  I will have to figure out then another inpatient stay come September so I am good and healthy for our honeymoon in October.

Ironic thing is I feel fine.  Nothing to report to her.  Good in that sense, but bad that I dropped so much.  Just sucks lol.

  1. Hang in there Amy! I have a good feeling that the Cipro will do wonders this time!
