I am opening up today about my weight gain since taking the 2 rounds of steroids!! I am MISERABLE!! I weigh 160 lbs and I feel every EXTRA pound!! I normally weigh around 145! I needed to lose about 5 lbs before the steroids and now I am beyond RIDICULOUS!! I am going to weigh myself every Monday and let you know my weight loss for the week!
I have NEVER had to watch one thing that went into my mouth! I eat cookies, cake, candy and my major weakness is snowballs!! I can eat a whole pack walking around Wal-mart!! This is going to be really hard and that is why I am putting it out there for all of you to see!! You guys can hold me accountable!!
I already run but I have not been running lately! The whole thing that started this whole downward spiral was 2 bulging discs in my lower back!! If you were following me when I was doing the exercises that I found on Pinterest, then you saw where I just dropped off with the posts about it! Well, I had back pain and 2 MRI's! Then I had the Bell's Palsy!! Hence, 2 rounds of steroids and here I am 15 lbs over weight!!!
Here is my plan....I am following Michael Hammond's 6 Week Body Makeover for food! Then I am running 3 times a week and getting my upper body workout from Fit With Brit! She is an AWESOME inspiration!! She has MS and looks great!! I love the site and all the options and variety she offers in her workouts!! Most workouts are 20 minutes but I swear I can barely lift my arms when I am done!!! Also, she is so sweet that she emails me and checks on me!! She answers all of my questions and has been a tremendous support as far as the steroid weight!! She has been through steroids, too!! If you are looking for 1 on 1 support and fun workouts, check her out!!!
So, as of this am, I weigh 160lbs!!! INSANE...
I can not believe that I am telling everyone my weight BUT there it is!!! We shall see how this week goes on my journey from
HEFTY TO HOTTIE!!!! ;)
I will post a menu of what I am eating for the next 5 days!!! :)
