Week 6 Summary- One change from last week!

Tuesday, March 01, 2016

6 Weeks already?! Wow, that went fast! So, pretty much everything is the same from last week; still sick, weight and measurements haven't changed. However, I'm putting that in the win category, since I've been not wanting to eat, and when I have, it's been BAD (like, lots of Oreos bad)... and I haven't been able to exercise for a week and a half. I lost 1/2 of an inch in one area, but I gained 3/4 of an inch elsewhere. I'm actually really surprised that my belly stayed the same, as I'm on antibiotics and they make me bloat like crazy. So maybe I would have actually been down a little? Who knows!

I had to cancel 4 of my classes, this will be my first one back since two Fridays ago. I'm happy to be back, but afraid I'll start hacking everywhere since I start coughing out of nowhere even when I'm not breathing deeply. I know my students have missed having class, though! Especially last Tues and Weds, since I couldn't find subs to cover for me.

Oh, there was one definite positive change last week; I've been doing a jeans test each week. Six weeks ago I couldn't fit into my largest pair. A few weeks later, I was able to fit into them. Last week, they were a little bit big so I thought I'd go a size down from that. I fit in them, without a muffin top! They're a little snug, but I'll take it! So that's two sizes down in 6 weeks. That means I'm still on track to reaching my goal, but if it takes a bit longer than that it's fine. My husband and I just booked our vacation for the beginning of June, so I can push my goal date of April 19 back an extra 5 weeks. That will hopefully get me to my goal and then be able to maintain so I don't gain again before the trip! We'll be going to Maine, so it won't be super warm where I need to worry about a bathing suit, I just want to feel comfortable and not have to spend each day trying clothes on to see what fits.

    Oh, I always take probiotics when I'm on antibiotics (and even when not, just for gut health since I have a persnickety stomach)! This type specifically says to take both a probiotic AND yogurt one hour before each dose.

    Google antibiotics and gut health or weight loss. You will find that antibiotics definitely have an impact on your absorption of nutrients, making it more difficult. You may need to include pre- and/or probiotics into your diet to heal.
