Weight Loss Success

If you have been keeping up with this blog, you know that I have been struggling with my weight for quite some time now. Which is to say, I have been struggling with self-control. My doctor also believes that I was having a hard time losing weight because of how my body processes sugars due to PCOS. I have been taking Metformin, which is technically a drug that treats diabetes, and it has made me somewhat sick, but the results have been worth it. I am also taking Prozac and Wellbutrin for depression, which have both worked together to help me focus more on the positive rather than the past.

Anyway, I started at 200 pounds, which is embarrassing to even admit, but that is the largest I have ever been. (And I was there for too long) After weight watchers and a lot of money, I was only able to lose and keep off about 5 pounds. So, I hovered around 195 for months. And months. When I started the new medications, things started to get easier. I added Jazzercise several times a week, which is amazing exercise, and so much fun. (And dropped Weight Watchers which just wasn't working for me.) Also, as you also know, I got engaged (!), and the idea of being fat at my wedding is enough to motivate me for sure. With that extra inspiration, I have actually started to see a difference in my figure. This morning, I weighed in at only 185 pounds! It feels really good to be losing some weight after struggling for so long. So, 15 pounds gone, 40 more to lose. Combined with exercise to keep me fit and healthy, I should be on track to have the perfect beach bod in time for my Caribbean wedding!
