Okay, I don’t have anything to update on the baby making front, but my posting has been dwindling recently, and I feel like writing tonight. I’m sure it will pick up around the 15th, since that’s when I’ll have plenty of stories to tell regarding giving myself shots of Lupron (my first series of hormone shots that I’m sure will make me cry on whim or some shit like that).
Remember a while back when I visited my RE, and she told me that I need to start eating? That I’m too thin? And how I didn’t agree? I think she would throw a shitfit now. I weighed myself the other day, and found that I’ve lost weight (weight that I have not been trying to lose). I now weigh 111 lbs. That’s actually 3 pounds less than I’d weighed just about a month prior – on the same scale (yes, the scale is correct because it has to be calibrated since it’s used to weigh military personnel in for meeting standards). And no, I’m not bragging. I actually have no idea how I’ve lost the weight, nor do I want to continue losing weight. While I do try to eat healthy on a somewhat consistent basis, I have not been so succesful recently. I’ve also increased the amount I eat daily because I’ve been incorporating in more fruits into my diet, plus ensuring that I eat 3 meals a day plus a late night snack (I used to skip breakfast). Now I’m at a loss of how to stop losing the weight, since I’m not sure what I’m doing to cause the loss. I’m not even sure that it’s a problem. I calculated my BMI, and I am still within a normal range. The only reason I worry is because my RE seemed to be so concerned about it when I was 117 lbs. I also worry that maybe I’m not getting enough nutrition from what I am eating since my weight keeps dropping. I think if I continue to lose weight, I’m going to ask for a referral to a nutritionist (especially if I succesfully get pregnant), to make sure I’m on the right track in my eating habits. If anyone has any suggestions – other than eating crap – please comment.
On another note, in my wanderings through Safeway health food section the other day (my recent new obsession), I found a really good organic dark chocolate whole soy frozen yogurt. It is so yummy!!! I know that probably doesn’t qualify for health food, but it’s healthier than regular ice cream, right? 🙂 If you come across it, I highly recommend that you try it.
