Busy, Busy, Busy

Okay, sorry I haven't been posting! I've been all over the place busy. I have some exercise to report, and some news;
Monday and Tuesday I worked on paving our walkway. This made me way way way sore, so I took yesterday and the day before off. It's almost done though! But I'm stuck. John's going to have to help me get unstuck.
I did 25 min. on the bike today, at 13-13.5 mph for a total of 5.7 miles covered, and it felt GREAT! So, no more nausea from the concussion, yay!
I had a dr's appt yesterday and everything's green, except one thing. We talked about my weight because I've been trying to lose TEN POUNDS, just ten!, since January, and I've lost nothing. Not lbs, not inches, nada. And I totally changed my diet! And worked out reguarly when not sick! (so, 50% of the time, granted, but it still counts! I should have lost something!) So, she started asking questions like, how are your cycles, (all over the place, the last "present" was in Feb.), how's your acne, (EXPLOSIVE), ect ect, and the bottom line is that we think I'm going through menopause maybe anyway, so I'm in the middle of some horrendous hormonal upheaval, and this is all hormonal weight gain. What does that mean? It's going to be SUPER DUPER UBER MEGA NIGH UNTO IMPOSSIBLE to lose any of it!! UUUUUAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!
My sister is helping me do weight watchers on the sly now. I'm hoping that might kick some things into gear. I don't know what else to do but not eat ever again. *sigh*

Eeek! They checked for pregnancy too right?

Maybe also try a diet that is based not on calories but on cutting something else? Lots of people with hormone problems really like the South Beach Diet (which cuts carbs in a healthy way).

oh yeah, all preg. tests were negative. i don't feel pregnant either. not nearly sick or tired enough, lol! my doc just told me to not get below 1000 calories, and to eat a variety of everything, including being uber on top of taking a multivitamin and exercise. my poor little body has just been through so much in the past couple of years or so that it doesn't know what to do with itself. *rolls eyes*
