I cannot believe that September is here which means another Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans challenge is complete and the Down & Dirty Challenge is over at the Sisterhood! I definitely did not get the results I wanted and felt that I didn’t make a good team member at all for this challenge. I have been a little preoccupied to say the least.
I still don’t have answers from my doctor. She is in conversation with a doctor in Charlotte so hopefully I’ll get my referral soon. In the meantime, she did give me some painkillers which I really thought would help with sleep but once again I was up half the night (and am now having trouble holding my head up!).
I was really hoping for a better weigh-in today. I snuck on the scale Monday and was happy to see the numbers but unfortunately that it was not the same number I saw today. Today’s weigh-in was 136.6. So I’m down from last week…a little. Over all I’m down for the challenge (barely) but nowhere near where I wanted to be.
I’ve got 6 1/2 weeks until my birthday and I really wanted to get a new tattoo but will not allow myself to do so until I am at least below 130 so I’m hoping that I can pick up the pace a little bit (and hopefully get pain under control so I can start running again!) so I can be up for the next Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans challenge.
So here are my stats:
Starting weight: 164.4
Challenge Starting Weight: 137.4
Challenge Goal: 132
Last week’s weigh-in: 137
Today’s weigh-in: 136.6
Challenge Change: -0.8
Overall Change: -27.8
In other news, I did have 2 articles published this week on other sites! I posted my first article as the endometriosis writer for the Fight Like a Girl Club – When the Doctor Says Its Endometriosis!
