Ha - I had the birth control shot too and also think that effected my weight! Wow you've done so good to quit soda completely, I still drink diet but really wanna cut that out as its no good for your teeth either.
I lost most of my weight right after getting engaged I was super determined, found it very hard to maintain the determination since. Now we're at 6 months its time to loose the rest!!! I've changed my eating habits too, i'm strict during the week and a little less strict at weekends. I've been attempting to go to the gym at least 2 times a week... dont always get there though :|
We can do it!
Started gaining after I got out of high school (been out of highschool for 7 years), I also partially blame it on the birth control shot, I did sports in high school so after I got out I wasn't quite as active and if your not active on that shot you are going to gain there is no doubt about it my Dr. said you gain anywhere from 5-30 lbs. if your not active and eat right on this shot, and of course I said oh no I wont gain and plus I'm active well low and behold I gained the 30 pounds, lost the weight on the LA weightloss program about 3 years ago and gained it all back plus some! So this time I told myself I wasn't going to necessarily "diet" but just change they way I eat and exercise in general. I dint drink anymore soda, I havent had a soda in 6 months and I still crave them (thats terrible) no more fast food or fried foods of any kind, and Ive really been trying to cut back on the sugar Ive done okay for the most part but I do still have an occasional starbucks (huge weakness for me), I really do need to get on the ball with exercising more though I think I would be loosing more if I stepped that up a bit. What have you been doing to lose the weight? Your doing much better than me Ive only lost like 15 pounds in a 4 month period should have lost way more than that but like I said Im trying to make it a lifestyle change not a "diet".
I wish I could take flowers/centre pieces with me, but I have so much to take as it is and they really know how to charge from the UK for excess baggage!!
I was wondering last night - we need to pick songs for walking down the asile etc. but how long does it take someone to walk down the asile? do you walk down to the same music as bridesmaids ?! ....
