Shrinkvivor Season 2: Week 2

SHRINKVIVOR CHALLENGEIt’s weigh-in day over at the Sisterhood for Shrinkvivor! It has been a frustrating week symptom-wise from the Megace treatment. I finally got a prescription for Zofran to make the nausea more tolerable but my insurance will only pay for 12 pills a month so I’m going to see if I can appeal as I can easily go through that in a week! I’ve done a pretty good job sticking to calorie counting. I can’t say I’m doing a very good job at eating well balanced meals but at the moment I’m working on eating anything that will not cause my GI system to hate me! Still, I’ve been worried about the whole weight gain thing from the treatment since its that #1 side effect so I was excited when I hopped on the scale this morning:

I am down 3 pounds!!! Woo-hoo!

This past week’s mini-challenge was counting exercise minutes and I am proud to share 77 minutes! I know for most people that’s not a huge deal but for someone who’s just 8 weeks post-op and was practically bed-bound for many weeks prior to that, I am super stoked!

This week’s mini-challenge is working on getting a good night’s sleep! For me, the struggle is not the quantity of hours but the quality of hours so I’m going to try to do my best to work on getting quality sleep (which I admit is a struggle with a 2 year old sometimes) which means turning off the phone and TV at a decent hour!

Here are my stats so far:

Starting Weight: 142.8

Goal Weight: 135

Current Weight: 139.8

Change: -3.0lbs

    Congrats on the loss! And yes, 77 minutes is great for 8 weeks post op! I doubt I would have been doing much of anything if I had surgery 8 weeks ago!

    that’s incredible! 🙂 especially those exercise minutes you were able to log – great job!!

    PS – we’re the exact same weight right now, so remember if you trash talk your body you are trash talking mine. let’s try to remember that and be kind to ourselves.
