I HAVE DONE IT!!!!
Not only am I blogging again so quickly, but I’ve decided that now is the time to lose weight. I have always been chubbier than others but could never lose weight despite exercise, diets, medicine. It’s incredibly frustrating! After I had my daughter it was discovered that I have PCOS which stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. For those who don’t know, it’s basically a hormonal disorder that causes a woman to get facial hair, acne, weight gain, and ovarian cysts. It’s none too fun.
Anyway, I’m jumping on the “lose weight” bandwagon because it’s necessary. I’m not happy. Even if I don’t lose weight, at least I’ll be healthier in my diet and exercise. I will also be talking to my doctor because we have talked about a second child and it’s going to be ridiculously hard to pregnant with PCOS. From what I was told by a specialist after our daughter was born, my birth control that I was on masked many of my symptoms and since it regulated my hormones that’s how I was able to get pregnant (yes, I got pregnant with my daughter while taking oral contraceptives). I want my doctor to know, though, that I’m not playing around. I don’t want a magic pill to help me, but I do want to be healthier. Especially as my daughter grows up, I don’t want her to be the girl with the fat mom.
So yesterday started my big steps – I did yoga and even danced…I HATE DANCING! lol But I did it. I do a dance party with my daycare kids each day and usually I sit back and watch, I take pictures, but I never get involved. Yesterday I did and I even worked up a sweat! The yoga was really enjoyable so I’m excited to do that again and I think after a little while I’m going to go from just crazy dancing to pop songs to actually doing Zumba but I need to work up to that.
I don’t have access to a gym (and the closest one is 40 minutes away…can’t do that…it’s a no) so I need things I can do at home, that’s why I chose these activities. I’m big on drinking water already so that’s not hard, but I’m going to be doing a weekly weigh-in on Fridays, so maybe that’ll prompt me more to post (along with the post-in in my day planner).
I’m hesitant to post on my personal facebook about this because I have people who sell things like Shakeology and It Works! and they’ve already approached me about buying there stuff, I don’t want this to be what gives them more motivation to approach me. It kind of stinks that I am scared to post there, but oh well. I can tell you guys.
Just this week I’m down 1.2 lbs!
