Day 67

Happy Valentine's Day!

Morning weigh-in: 136.7! I finally broke the 137 marker once again. Hopefully I will see 135.something soon. Even if it is 135.9 I will flip. I haven't seen that in over 12 years!

Today I work a 10 hour shift. My plan is to do my nails tonight but it is V-Day and all, so I might have to post-pone that till tomorrow. I woke up so extremely sore. I think it is the 99 push-ups from the other day combined with the lunges and squats. Tomorrow, even though I work, I will try to either run or do the Shred.

BF: plain oatmeal (150) with cinnamon and 3/4 of an apple (75), Snack: hot chocolate (80), Snack 2: Zone bar (190), Lunch: homemade sandwich (260), few slices of kiwi (30?), 1/2 grapefruit (60)...845...then I got bad...2 slices of rye bread (250?) with WW cream cheese (60) and ham (60) about 1275...but then: about a 3x3 inch slice of chocolate chip cookie cake and a glass of milk. Yikes, who knows how many calories were in that. It was really dense and really stuffed me up. But at least I finished eating it around 8:15pm and I won't eat anything else for the rest of the night. So maybe I will go to bed slightly hungry. Of well, at least I was good all day up until then.

I hope this doesn't mean I will be way above the 137 mark tomorrow.


  1. We weigh pretty much the same. Its funny.

    Also, what can you tell me about Seasonique? Does it have a diuretic in it like Yaz? Do you think it'll make me gain weight?

    Oh and I'm glad you liked my drunken blog post last night :) I can get a little on the ferocious side when I've had a few! But hey, it put me into overdrive!

  2. Happy V-day! Good job breaking the 137 marker!

  3. Devon: I know! Crazy huh? And we are about the same height. We'll do it together...a few more pounds at least. Let's shoot for less than 135 by March 1st.

    Seasonique doesn't have a diuretic in it. So you will notice a bit of water weight-gain if you switch to it. Its a regular birth control pill that you keep on taking so you get fewer periods. The main side effect is breakthrough bleeding. The breakthrough bleeding should subside after 3-4 months of regular use. It also has a slightly higher dose of estrogen than Yaz so I don't know how your body would respond to that (as far as weight gain is concerned). Its kinda a gamble with trying a new pill sometimes. Most don't cause weight gain but each one can affect each person differently. I've never taken Seasonique so I can't tell you from personal experience. I like to get my period each month, it keeps me sane and I hate breakthrough bleeding so its not for me. Let me know if you have more questions. Hope that helped.

    Irene: Thanks! You too!
