What I'm Missing

April 11, 2011

These days I'm missing:

  • Enjoying fresh fruits and veggies.  Fruit gives me horrible heartburn, and the thought of fresh veggies makes me literally gag.
  • Running :( Any thought of movement makes me start to feel nauseous.  I miss the feeling I get after a good run.  At this point, I likely won't be running for quite awhile... but I certainly hope I feel like walking sometime soon.
  • Pants that fit.  Regular pants are too small, and maternity pants are much too big - especially jeans.
  • Packing my own lunch to bringing to work... I just can't seem to pull something together most mornings.
  • My CWWL (Crazy Weight Watchers Leader) and WWers peeps
  • The motivation that my Thursday WWers meetings always brought.
  • A good nights sleep.
  • Measuring things, counting Points and journaling - yes... I'm crazy, I loved it, and can't wait to get back there.
  • Chicken - just like last time with "L", really hard for me to stomach.
  • Coffee - just the smell of  Starbucks makes me gag, and I'm a freaking gold card member.
  • Feeling the inspiration that losing weight brings.
What I am NOT missing:
  • Peeing on those stupid OPK (ovulation predictor kit) sticks, and always getting a negative result.  I swear, I never got a positive, AND I still got pregnant... figure that one out.
  • Seeing pregnant people everywhere I turn, and knowing I'm not.
  • PCOS - Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome - bite it you stupid disease!
  • Negative thoughts about my body
  • The thoughts that "L" will never have a sibling

    Great list. Everything has pros and cons so it's important to be honest about it.

  3. Congrats on the Strib article!! Looks awesome! Hugs!

  4. Read the article in Star & Tribune. I just had to look you up as I am starting the journey to lose 100+ pounds with weight watchers. Unlike you I have had a taste of desserts when I am out for the volunteer luncheons, church suppers, etc. It is only a taste but I do need to make better choices. I started WW on Feb. 15th and have lost 19.2 pounds. It has been difficult at times as food as been my friend and enemy! So, here I am at 66 wanting to win this battle. Congratulations on your pregnancy and weight loss. I am going to continue reading your blog to keep my mind on that a person can succeed. The best to you and your family.

  5. I just found your blog and I am so inspired! I too have been battling PCOS for the past 8 years. I have been trying to conceive for the past 3. We are finally moving on to a fertility specialists in hopes that one day we can have a child. Thank you for your posts and your encouragement! I too have lost almost 100 pounds and just recently started blogging! Keep up the good work!
