So this week has blown major ass so far. All eight of my friends at work quit over the previous two to three weeks so I now have no one to help me get through the day. My in-laws were in town for Memorial Day weekend so I got no sleep. My air conditioner in my house isn't working, and the high temperature this weekend is over 100 degrees. I'm too poor to afford to have someone come fix the A/C right now so me, my fiancee, and our three dogs will be sweating our balls off for a few weeks.
(And I don't want to hear ANY of you say, "Well, it's 90 degrees here, Sara. We're hot, too!" NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT. Until you live in Louisiana/Texas with the sweltering heat and humidity, you never get to complain about heat. I've been to states a little further north in the summers. And it is absolutely nothing compared to here. In Louisiana, the heat sucks the breath right out of you. So shut the fuck up, northern complainers.)
And on to Weigh-In Wednesday.
Starting Weight: 189.2
Last Week's Weight: 182.4
Current Weight: 181.4
This Week's Loss: 1.0
Total Loss: 7.8
At least something went right this week.
I should also let you know that I am trying something new that not everyone agrees with: Adipex. A wonderful, beautiful, amazing, bestfriendforever weight loss drug. The reason I have chosen to use this to help me along for the next 2.5 months is because I'm getting married in FIVE months. Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to worry about losing weight to look good in pictures.
I will be taking adipex for 3 months, and my goal is to lose 30 pounds which should honestly be a piece of cake. I figured some of you might like to know how it works from a personal perspective so I'll give you my thoughts on the process as I'm using it.
I've been taking Adipex for exactly one week. I typically take it in the afternoon and get a huge rush of adrenaline. I get shit done at work, I'm incredibly friendly, and I can't wait to get home and work out. I'm not hungry. Ever. Like, so not hungry that I have to remind myself to eat otherwise I'll get a severe headache.
I can run much longer distances on the treadmill, and I actually look forward to getting on the scale the next day.
Now, adipex is not a "miracle drug". Yes, it will make the weight fly off of you. Yes, you will lose weight without even lifting a finger. BUT. If you don't use it properly and with caution, you will end up gaining it all back. Adipex decreases your appetite. When you stop taking it, your appetite comes back. So now YOU have to control how much you eat and how often you work out.
Hopefully, I will get to my goal weight and be able to maintain it. And look smoking hot in my wedding pictures, obviously.
