When it comes to my weight loss, life has been throwing me a lot of curve balls lately, but I am not breaking down and taking a few days off like I had planned. As of late I have been feeling all kinds of sick due to my medications. The side effects are pretty bad, but I have not let that get in the way of getting my workouts done. I may half ass some of them during the days I feel like crap, but at least I am still doing something instead of nothing at all. I have not had much of an appetite lately so I have been eating very little, but still eating seeing as how it's pretty important and skipping meals is not an option. With everything I eat making me sick I have been eating like a bird lately. I am really proud of myself that I continue to stay strong with all that is going on and still getting things done! I have been feeling extremely nauseous as well and during workouts it's even worse so when I am feeling that way I slow it down and let it pass before I pick up the pace.

On another note... I kept telling myself not too long ago that I would NOT own a scale for various reasons. I figured there was no point in owning one because I had frequent visits with my neurologist every month or so and had a routine weighing. Well........ I ended up buying a scale a few days ago. My appointments have slowed down and are less frequent currently and I am on meds which can cause weight changes and in my case I hope weight loss instead of weight gain. So I need to monitor my weight for changes other than weight loss. Sooo.... this is my current weight (pictured below) and I have lost 25 lbs so far. I plan to continue weighing myself once a month. I am not hung up on scale numbers. Its the measurements that count!!! Especially in the beginning! Weighing myself once a month is good enough for me!
