I hope this finds you well! Doing good here.
Monday I went for my 3 month eye exam after having Lasek/PRK eye surgery to correct my vision. I am very very happy to report that after months of symptoms they did not warn me about...
I am finally 20/20.
Now that I'm at the end I'm happy and it was worth it. :) I still have sensitivity to light and dry eyes but that will go away over the next 6 months they say. So over all... no regrets and very happy! I would highly recommend it to anyone who's interested, just know what your in for. :)
My weight loss is still happening. I have unfortunately rebounded after hitting 129... but that's sometimes just how it goes. I am back to 130/131.
My weight loss has been pretty consistent, losing almost every week, over the last 4 months. So I'm thrilled with that... however I feel like I need something extra. My goal date is quickly approaching and I don't want it to pass me by. I wanted to be in a swim suit and feeling good about it by July 1. That's less than 8 weeks away and I still have 15 pounds and a whole lotta jiggle to go. Like... a LOT. I don't feel like I will be able to hit that goal on my own. At an average weight loss of 1.2 pounds per week... I will only lose 9.6 pounds over the next 8 weeks based on my average.
So I decided to step it up.
I took all my saved shopping money for the summer... and hired a personal trainer instead! Woohoo!!!!
That's right! No shopping but...
I have a Personal Trainer!
I never thought I would be saying that. Yet here I am. lol!
I am down to the hard to lose fat at this point. The stuff that sticks to you like glue. The triple rolls of belly fat. The thighs that just wont shrink to get me into those smaller jeans. The stuck to my ribs back fat rolls. That's right ladies. I'm not afraid to say it. All that... HAS GOT TO GO!
So I am hopeful that with her help I will be right where I want to by goal time. I am also happy to be doing this because when I get to my goal weight... I won't be "skinny fat"... I will be in shape, healthy and toned. Maybe even have a 2 pack under all those rolls! Woohoo! Can't say I ever thought I would be saying that either.
Overall... here's what I want to say... losing weight is darn hard. It's maddening sometimes but the only thing standing in my way is always myself... and I'm stronger than that comfortable couch, delicious bag of salt and vinegar chips and bottle of wine. :o) and you can be too!
Until next time...
