August Weight Loss Update

I haven’t updated on my weight in awhile.

Today I weighed 160 lbs. This makes a total of 31 lbs lost since January. Go me!

I haven’t been tracking my calories or eating particularly healthy. I haven’t been exercising. I’m sure I would have lost more if I had been doing those things, but I’m still eating less in general.

I didn’t go swimming much this summer like I had planned. On July 4, at our family picnic, I had to leave early. It was in the high 90’s that day and I couldn’t take being outside. Turns out I was probably running a fever too. I found out later in the week I had a sinus infection, ear infections in both ears, and bronchitis. It took me most of July to recover full and I still don’t really feel like being outside.

I started on Wellbutrin a few weeks ago. The first few weeks were great. Energy! I could think again! Couldn’t sleep without Ambien though. That wore off, but I still think the brain fog is better. I asked the doctor to up my dose, we’ll see what she says. I don’t have much less of an appetite, but I seem to get full more quickly.

I’ve been having a lot of pain in my legs lately. I really feel like it is due to the EDS and I’m going to tell the rheumy that when I see him this Friday.

Starting today, I’m keeping track of my food again. I also printed out some new recipes to try from sparkrecipes.com.

I’ve been working 6 hours a day instead of 5 lately. I have a lot of work to do plus we need the extra money (to pay for things like this netbook that I’m writing on). The first two weeks I did this, I wasn’t on the Wellbutrin yet. I was EXHAUSTED. Couldn’t think at all. Now I’m handling it pretty well. It’s definitely progress because before I was barely able to make it the 5 hours. If I work over 6 hours in a day, I need to take a lunch break, so I will have to work even more to get in more hours. There would be no point in working 6 and a half hours. I’m not ready to handle being there 7 hours yet so I’m going to stick with 6 for awhile.
