I was sooo worried it would be the complete opposite. But the more I thought about it, it was when I went on BC, that I started to gain weight, and my metabolism slowed waaayyyyy down. The pill literally took everything out of me- my whole personality changed, now that I am realizing I am coming back. The me I was over 10 years ago is finally back, and this is the version of me I have been trying to be this whole time, but is actually genuine! Happy, caring, loving, feeling desirable and wanted, affectionate, etc. These are all things I "told" myself I was, but never believed it all these years, because something in me had changed. It is crazy the complete alteration hormones made on me.
Good for you for staying on it! I would gladly have stayed on it, as now I will be praying for Aunt Flo every month until at least next July and sex, while great, is slightly less because of needing to pause for those few moments of needing to put a condom on. HAHAHA. Only on the internet, with ladies like you who I know won't judge, would I ever share that haha.

I would like to be 150 by my wedding, or about 145ish, but that may be pushing it. IM 5'7 so For me it will be dependant on how my body looks. If im happy at 150 then I will stay there we def have enough time to get to our goals. and you seem WELL on your way.. congrats!!!
Lets kill our workouts ladies!!!
Today I got up at 5 and did my FOCUS25. I hve every intention of doing another round tonight and my weights but I hav esome running around for my social to do tonight, as well as try and find a damn dress :/
Have a great day girls!
Thanks love!!!! It is really amazing how awesome and liberating it has been to be off of it. I feel the same way, I am just going to be very cautious until about next July... then, I don't really care if I am a few months pregnant for our wedding either. Awwww, babies! I am waaayyy more excited about that time in my life than the wedding. I am excited about our wedding, don't get me wrong, but making a mini- us, and experiencing all that- man, sooo excited it is closer than not for us. I cannot wait for Amir to be a Dad- I think that is my biggest excitement, is to see him become this amazing father, and that I get to be the one to make him into this amazing person.
Ideally, I would like to be down to 130 for my wedding. As I am only 5'4, I figure it is the perfect weight to look the best in my dress. SOOOO far to go still, but I know I will get there. The past few weeks motivation has really kicked it up a notch. Whereas before, I could totally talk myself into NOT working out, now I need to push myself to take a day and just relax. It helps that I know I can just take an hour in the evening and go for a walk. Not only is it my downtime, me time, it's also exercise, and I don't walk slowly, so it still gets my heart rate up, which is awesome.
You definitely have enough time to get to your goal, and all the work you have already put in is amazing!
Have a great day yourself ladies!!!!!
