So something has been bugging me lately.
First, I am never one to look for excuses as to why I gain weight. I know that sometimes my eating gets derailed, or I take a little hiatus from exercise. I just nod to myself, fix it and move on.
The thing is, in the last 3 months I just haven't been able to stop some of the weight gain. I went from 168 (ish) in November to 185 (ish) this month.
Now Novermber and December I didn't get as much exercise in as I should- though November is when I ran Ragnar, so that might not even be true.
In January I started Crossfit- YEE-YEE
I have been going 3-5 times a week since I started. It has started to become Spring and I just move more when I can get outside.
Anyway, I just haven't been able to figure out why my weight jumped so quickly and then just got sticky and stayed, no matter what.
I blamed some of it on holidays and all of that. Then the Winter blues. This Winter just seemed to last for FREAKING EVER.
So I got to thinking. Right before I started my weightloss journey I had a sudden 25 pound weight gain that just pushed me over the edge.
*I didn't think about why because I knew that I had always had terrible eating and exercise habits and I just figured it was the next jump to buying a bigger size of pants.* Just a typical life as a chubby girl, you know?
That doesn't explain this one though, does it? Well here is the deal. I have been on BC since I was about 16 because my periods just get out of control and the cramps make me miserable.
After I decided to have surgery I decided that I wasn't going to add those chemicals into my body anymore and that I would just suffer through whatever came my way with the period business.
It actaully worked out well, until in October of last year the period from hell hit, and I decided to go back on Nuv@ Ring.
Sudden weight gain anyone?
The same BC that I had switched too just a few months before the 25 pound gain almost 2 years ago that pushed me to have WLS.
It just didn't make me feel right, really lethargic and bloated. So I stopped taking it again (about 1 month ago.)
So I am hopping that, that combined with my renewed effort to stay away from sugar and my .3 fill I got today will get me going again!
