Weigh in day

Today's weigh in was pretty good!

1.2 down
84.8 total
5.2 to go

I talked with my personal trainer last week about how my weight loss has kinda just stopped. She recommended eating smaller meals more often. I have tried to work snacks into my days, and apparently it's helping a little bit. When I go grocery shopping this week, I'm going to be getting a little more creative with my snack food.

On another health related note, I went to the doctor last week and had a whole bunch of tests ran to see if it can be determined why I pass out so much. Essentially, I got the same answer every doctor has always given me - it's just who I am. Which sucks, but I guess it makes me me. He gave me some tips to prevent my pass out spells:

  • Avoid situations that make me pass out. Are you kidding me, doc?
  • Drink more water.
  • Take salt tablets. These do not exist in any stores. I'm going to have to buy them online, which makes me nervous.
  • If things don't improve, wear support hose. Gross.
  • If things still don't improve, I may need a pacemaker. This will not happen.
I'm pretty sure I'm cured, anyway. I haven't had any light headed-fainting spells since my surgery time. I am better about water. I've been drinking a ton since I started this diet, but I'm working on cutting soda out completely. I don't know if I'll ever get there, though. I really love my Diet Mt Dew every morning.

Anywho...another week in the books. My parents had a talk with me last night, asking me to stop losing when I hit the 90 pound mark. They are worried I won't look healthy and think I'm at a good weight now. I told them we would discuss it again when I hit 90. I don't see what they are seeing. In my mind, I definitely have at least 15 pounds to go to hit 100 pounds down, and then maybe another 20 after that. They must be seeing what I don't.
