As of yesterday I am down 15 pounds. That is 11.5 % of the weight I actually need to lose and almost 17% of my goal for next April. It doesn't seem like much in comparison really but it is progress.
I totally screwed up last night and mixed my meds up. This meant I didn't sleep, AT ALL. Okay, that is an exaggeration...I maybe got 60-90 minutes all night. Let me tell you how short on patience I am today. It also meant I couldn't take the phentermine today when I actually need it. I am exhausted and working desperately to not eat because of it.
It has rained so much here the past couple of weeks that the ground is swampy and the kids can't really play outside without getting covered in mud. So at home with twin five year olds and a one year old with cabin fever. I think I am taking them to the McD's playplace this afternoon to burn off some energy. I could use a diet coke and the caffeine that comes with it.
I am truly a mom over the top! I have been a compulsive overeater for most of my life. The first time I remember specific over the top eating behaviors was when I was 13 years old. That was 24 years ago. I started on this journey to health, to abstinence, to sanity in May, 2010. I hope that by blogging I can help, not only myself, but help others to know that they aren't alone. My tools on this journey are Overeaters Anonymous and SparkPeople.
