Hey everyone! Happy March, I can’t believe we are already three months into 2016, how crazy is that? I also cannot believe I’ve been working out for 2 whole months, consistently. I am so proud of myself! I do have some updates for you!
First off, I bought a scale. I didn’t want to, BUT I thought it was important to keep track of my weight loss. I also started counting calories! I definitely have my cheat days, because I do NOT believe in depriving yourself. I mean, lets face it, I’m a foodie! There is no way in HELL I’m not going to eat pizza, drink boba, etc. It’s all about moderation. So if you are wondering how I keep track of counting my calories there is an iPhone app that I use called ‘MyFitnessPal’ I’m pretty sure it’s free, and it makes this process so much easier. All you have to do is put in your weight, height, your goal weight and how much weight you want to lose per week (i put 2 lbs/week). It calculates how many calories you can eat per day. It’s awesome! I definitely recommend it.
So with that said, I’ve been counting calories for a week and a half only. When I first weighed myself, I was at a whopping 165 even. It is the heaviest I have ever been in my life. Remember, I’m 5’2. But, I weighed myself this past Monday and I am now at 163.6! YES! PROGRESS! It’s the little goals that mean the most to me. Little accomplishments that will lead me to my big goal! So, my goal weight is to be 120 lbs. I have a long way to go, and it’s going to take a lot of determination, motivation and a lot of self-discipline. I’ve come this far, and I’m not stopping now.
I have been taking my prolactinoma pills for five months the 17th. I finally think they are starting to kick in! I hope this helps with the weight loss, I’ve heard people who take cabergoline do tend to see results around 3-6 months in. SO FINGERS CROSSED. Anyway, I hope on my three month update I would have lost a good amount of weight (hopefully 10 lbs).
I hope you all have a good night. I’m looking forward to my weigh-in this upcoming Monday. If you’re currently trying to find motivation to lose weight, eat healthier, or work out in general- reach deep. You can DO IT! Make 2016 your year!
