The Biggest Loser Final & WW Weigh In Anticipation

Did you see the Biggest Loser last night!? Holy cow. What a transformation! Talk about inspiration. Hannah, Oliva and I all have the same body type. Well they both had...I still do but I'm working on it. I'm tempted to print out pictures of their transformations and keep them posted someplace but that's a little crazy stalker like, right? I would love to be in the 120s someday....probably not in 5 months though. That's a little unrealistic. I've always wondered how the Biggest Loser contestants maintain when they're not on the ranch but in real life again. Yes, they follow their diets and go to the gym. But seriously, they can't be spending 8+ hours a day working out when they're back home.

Today is weigh in day at WW! Like I said on Monday...I am siked. The gym kept me truthful to what I eat and how much work I am putting into this. I'll be back with the results. :)

I feel GREAT!!!!

I have to smack myself. I've been prolonging joining the gym because I've had it stuck in my head that I can't afford it. Well, the women's fitness center is go cheap. It breaks down to $1.00 a day. I know I can sacrific $1.00 a day for my health and future family.

I've gone to 2 zumba classes since Wednesday. I've absolutely LOVED them! I forget about the time and just dance. I do come out sweating like crazy but HEY....sweating is healthy.

I just got home from the gym. Unfortunately, there was no Zumba class tonight but I did my share of working out. I spend 30 minutes on the eliptical (I have to calculate how many activity points I get for that). Then I spent 45 minutes weights for my arms, legs, backs, and abs. I feel great. I kind of CANNOT wait for weigh in on Wednesday. :)

Wow! I guess I really haven't followed through with tracking my weight loss efforts. These past few weeks have been hectic. Nothing has changed significantly weight wise. My total weight loss however is now -22.4 lbs. Not bad but still not great.

Things are about to change in my life though. The hubby and I had our first appointment with an RE today. My suspcions were confirmed. I do have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). It was quite apparent on the internal ultrasound. Our RE was very informative. He did express my excessive weight will make getting pregnant, staying pregnant and having an easy pregnancy difficult. He really made me nervous with the kind of birth defects a baby could have if I were to be pregnant at this weight. The RE did give me a prescription and directions for Clomid. He was not discouraging at all but it got me thinking. We definitely want to start our family but why add an additional risk?

After our appointment, the RE sent me for some blood work. He wants to see what some hormone levels are like and to see if by chance I'm ovulating now. (I highly doubt it.) I'm supposed to call his nurse tomorrow to find out the results of the tests. When I talk to her, I'm going to express to her my concerns with staying at my current weight and starting Clomid. The hubby and I had a nice long chat during lunch and decided I'm going to work hard (joined a gym after lunch) and loose at least another 10% of my body weight then start the Clomid.

I'll be attending my first Zumba class tomorrow night. I've been working on recipes from Hungry Girl's and Rocco's Dispirito's cookbooks. Some of the recipes are to die for!
