PeacefulChaos Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 So I went to the urologist today for all my pre-lithotripsy stuff and discovered that I weigh 5 lbs more than I thought (DANG IT!) - I was really hoping that if my scale at home was wrong, it would be in the OTHER direction. ;) So that puts me at about 25 lbs overweight. :( On top of that, I apparently have high blood pressure, which I have NEVER had before. I have had all my pregnancies without high blood pressure and everything. I've actually always had pretty low blood pressure, even when pregnant, so I'm like :001_huh: about the whole thing. I'm just sort of at a loss. I don't know what to do to fix this. I get that I need to exercise but I don't know when to do it, or what to do. It's insanely hot right now so I can't really do anything outside, plus the kids are young and I'd have them with me. I hate exercise videos, but I guess I just need to figure something out. I don't know when to do them... I get up and immediately get into the shower (well, I usually get Pink some breakfast first - the boys eat before I get up) and then just start with my day - and this is summer. We start school in two weeks and then I really don't know when I'll have time. I don't want to do it later in the day, after I've had a shower, and just end up feeling like I need to shower again. And the food thing is totally throwing me off. I eat pretty well. So I just don't get it. I'm totally frustrated and upset by the fact that no matter what I do, I just can't stick to losing weight because it means either being hungry or not eating food that tastes good or sitting here unable to eat anything while everyone else does. I started doing fitnesspal again but it gets so annoying. I make a LOT of different stuff and I was getting really sick of having to go in every single day and add a new recipe and figure out just how many servings it is, etc, etc. When I was doing it, I noticed that I don't regularly consume a massive amount of calories in a day. It set my goal at like 1420, and while I did go over several times, it wasn't by more than 200-300, and I still ended up losing 5 lbs only to gain back that PLUS 5 more in the next two weeks. It just sucks. DH eats Totino's pizzas and Chef boyardee (and occasionally ramen) for lunch, cinnamon raisin bread with butter for breakfast, normal dinner, and salt and vinegar chips for a snack after the kids go to bed and weighs 155. I weigh more than my husband and eat 90 cal granola bars for breakfast, salads or leftovers (usually either stir fry or whole grain pasta with veggies and some chicken) for lunch, normal dinner, and tortilla chips with some dip after the kids go to bed. I know how I eat isn't perfect, but it isn't bad. I'm just really down right now. :confused: And totally at a loss for what to do. I feel like I've been fighting an uphill battle with my weight since last October (when I suddenly went from weighing 160 - still wanted to lose weight then - to 170 in a matter of about a week or two) and I'm losing. :( :crying: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
