Ack! I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted!

I have been incredibly busy these last two weeks plus my meds have been screwed up too. Meds are now normal again but life will not settle down for awhile so I will just need to get used to my new normal.

Last time I posted that my weight has plateaued a bit but it's seems to have started moving again. I haven't weighed myself for two weeks cause I was sick of seeing the same number. I'm still basically doing the Special K thing but have tweaked it a bit to make it more of a whole foods diet. I'm alternating between Special K, Oatmeal with Craisins and Kashi cereal. Some mornings, when I'm super busy, all I have is dried fruit and almonds. I've increased how much fruit and veggies I eat (I'm off my blood thinners now so I can eat anything, yay!) and I'm trying hard to do away with processed foods, white flour and white sugar (Thank you Karilynn for reminding me of how I SHOULD be eating). I know special K isn't the best choice but it's still an ok choice until I can get some more recipes and more better (LOL, my kids would kill me for my bad grammer!) foods in my food storage.

We also got a membership to the rec center and I've been doing water aerobics with a friend two days a week. I can't go on Wednesday's at the time the class is so I'm thinking of going and doing weights at an earlier time. We will see how motivated I am to do this tomorrow! LOL

It looks like it's working! I've lost weight! I'm keeping it a secret as to how much. You'll find out how much on Thursday! I will tell you that I'm finally out of the 150's! I've been big time bloated the last two weeks so I couldn't tell that I'd lost anything so I was really surprised to see the number that I did this morning.

Next week I'm going to Oregon for 6 days for a midwife conference! Yay! I'm taking my baby and the Grandparents are taking care of the other 6. We are staying at the Hilton (where the conference is) and apparently they have a pretty nice workout room. Whether or not I will use it is another story. I'd have to rely on friends to watch my baby while I workout plus we will be staying up late playing and getting up early for classes so I don't know if it will happen. I think I'm taking the laptop so I will try and check in.


  1. Yay! We missed you! So exciting that you have beaten the dreaded plateau. Can't wait to see how you did this month. :o) And have tons of fun at your midwife conference! I would LOVE to be going to something like that.

  2. Way to go, Camille! I am so proud of the progress you have made. Have a great time at the conference. Can't wait to hear your new numbers on Thursday. :)

  3. Go you!!! Have a great time at the conference and make sure to get your butt to that workout room! ;-)
