WI this week = up 1 lb...no biggie :O)

I had to go to the doctor today for a physical because I've been having some troubles with spotting, cramps, sore back, messed up TOM. While doing the pelvic exam she right away said "There's something in your uterus, it feels really large". So I have to go for an ultrasound Sept 29th. She thinks it's probably a tumor (fibroid). I will update when it comes time. She suggested it could be from losing so much weight, but I haven't found anything like that online yet in my research.

Soooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about WI today. Down the 2 lbs that I had gained last week. WOOT WOOT! Must've just been water retention. So I'm 140 even bay-BEE!

Thanks to those who have suggested that I DON'T adjust my points this week (Wendy, Shirley, Runny, Misti). You guys are right. I'm just freaking out a little, and I shouldn't be. I am going to follow your advice and just go on as normal this week. Hopefully this little gain was due to TOM.

Andddd, because I always share...here's a pic from last night. This is my very good friend Synthia and I.

And a family shot. The lighting's a bit weird, I guess because it's night maybe.

GAINED another 2 lbs this week. I am SO freakin' frusterated! I dropped my points by 2 per day, AND I earned 28 AP's at my new gym this week. I just don't get it. TOM did arrive this A.M. but still :O(

So, I'm dropping 2 more pts for this week. Back down to 26 per day which is what I originally started maintenace at before having to add points to stop my body from losing. I feel sad, I really enjoyed getting 30-35 per day, plus flex and ap's. It was so much food! Oh well...

How I love the leggings trend, and being thin enough to wear them :O)

Excuse the angle on this shot, my 4 yr old took it.

I'm so excited! My brother lives in Mexico and doesn't get home to visit us until his summer holidays and Christmas every year. Well he sent me a text yesterday telling me that I have to go to World's Gym before 1pm. He bought me a years membership! I AM beyond thrilled! This is something that I just couldn't afford to do on my own (family of 5 living on one wage). Since my gym pass at the Rec Center ran out mid June (which he also bought), I've been seriously slacking on the exercise. My knees just can't seem to handle too much running, and my bike keeps getting flat tires. Excuses I know, but I've also had alot of stress with what's going on with my Mom. The result of my lack of exercise was my gain of 3 lbs last week. I guess my metabolism finally slowed. Anyways, my new gym is literally one block away. I'm not kidding. It would be ridiculous to drive there! And it's HUGE, like insanely massively huge! At least 20-25 times bigger than my other gym. There is a co-ed section, a ladies only section, a room that they do classes in (that I attend for free). There's tanning beds, childcare (awesome looking room) where they will take all 3 of my kids for 5 bucks! There's a store that sells clothing, protein drinks/bars, and water. Andddddd what I'm most excited about it my FREE session with a personal trainer! Yippee!!! I went last night for an hour, and it was sooooo empty. There's hardly ever anyone in there, or maybe it just seems that way because it's so big. There's TV's everywhere, way more then needed, and I love how the entire one side of the building is garage doors, so they open them all up when it's a nice day and you feel like you're outside :O)

Here's to gettin' buff, and growing some muscles :O)

Eeeek, gained 3 lbs this week putting me at 140 lbs. That tells me...that I have to get off my ass and start exercising again. My metabolism must be slowing.

So I got my blood test results today. They were completely normal. YAY! It was a different doctor who saw me to give me my results, so I got her opinion on my weight. She also said I am the perfect weight right now, and not to change a thing. I liked her so much that I am going to continue seeing her as my family doctor. She seems to think the problems that I've been having are related to stress.

To all of those people that are saying I'm TOO SKINNY

HAHA! I'm actually really excited about this...I went to my doctor yesterday because I'm feeling a little blah lately. I'm just tired, headaches, a little lightheaded. Alot of people have been making comments that I'm too skinny, and I've taken the weight loss too far, so I thought I might as well check with my Doctor who would know best. Well he did all his fancy little calculations with this little electronic gadget thingamajig and a physical examination, and he came to the conclusion that I am IDEAL WEIGHT! WOOHOOOO! It felt SO good to hear him say that. He repeated it several times. He said don't lose another lb, you are just right where you are at. You look good, you're healthy. He did send me for blood tests to figure out why I'm getting the blah feelings. He figures it could be my thyroid, or low iron. I will find out in a couple of days the results.

Anyways, just had to brag. What a great feeling!
