Well. I disappeared. That was my bad.
Good news! I haven’t fallen off the bandwagon. I plateaued at 143 for a while, but recently dropped to 140 where I have maintained for a few weeks. Measurements wise, I am now a 35-26-38 with a 22″ thigh. I wear a 28/30 (with 4% spandex, to be fair) at Urban Outfitters, or approximately a size six. Considering my starting measurements were 35/30/40 (didn’t measure thigh because I was dumb) and 170 lbs, I am feeling very pleased. Ideally, I want to lose 10 more lbs and reach a size 4, but I’m definitely much happier with my body right now. I still have a booty and my body is much leaner. I would like to start lifting weights again, but I keep finding excuses not to. I am planning a cheat day on Thanksgiving, so I will have to get my butt to the gym on Friday or Saturday to compensate.
I am doing relatively well in school. I changed majors because I realised I do not want to be an Engineer. I’m pursuing an English and Biology double degree with the goal of becoming a High School Teacher (much to my husbands disappointment… he wanted me to be his Sugar Momma… whoops).
We got another dog! A boxer/mastiff named Brock. He’s six months and 60 lbs. Gah. He’s the most lovable little boy ever, though. :] He and Poochie are best friends!
Bad news! I had a pretty bad manic episode in September and had to switch drugs. I’m presently on 50mg of Lamictal, which I am ramping up tomorrow to 100mg. It makes me spacey as shit and sometimes I just… lose time. It took a while to actually kick in and work, so I was really unstable for a while there. I’m feeling a lot more normal and in control now but it was a long time coming.
I’ll try to update with food recipes in the coming week. I’ve made some pretty incredible things in the past few months.
