wednesday update

Pregnancy Quest Update:
Had my post op appt today. In a nutshell what she told me was that my endometriosis was pretty bad. One of my ovaries was actually attached to my uterus. She was able to fix this though. She cleaned everything up and flushed everything out. So the conditions for getting pregnant right now are at their best. She doesn't even think I need to be on Clomid. So we are going to give it a try on our own for these next couple of months. Keep your fingers crossed! If nothing happens we will most likely go back to the infertility specialist in GR.

Medifast update:
I found out yesterday that my shipment of Medifast I ordered through Craig's List (much cheaper) was sent to the WRONG address, arg! I only had 3 packets of soup left so I wasn't sure what I was supposed to eat in place of the Medifast. I didn't want mess things up and get out of the fat burning stage. I emailed one of the life coaches and she told me if I stuck to lean meats, egg whites, veggies, etc. and kept it under 1,000 calories and 100 grams of carbs I should be OK for a few days. The Medifast should get here by friday :)

Some good news...
Is that Keith is starting to have some work trickle again. He's been off for the past 2-3 weeks which has given him the chance to do some ice fishing but it makes things kind of scary when there is no work lined up. He's been doing a lot of bids and estimates and we are hoping these turn into jobs.

I think that's about it for now. Stay warm!

Good luck to both of you ! Keep Keith busy both with painting and his homework! By the way Keith told me you had a great first week on your diet, way to go Brenda !

I like how you updated on this post. I think I need to do a strict type of diet like medifast. Maybe it would stop me from devouring the mint oreos that I love oh so much. They were my breakfast this morning...and also most of my lunch. Isn't that gross!?!? Your next weigh-in is Monday...right?

Brenda Lee said...

Yup, next weigh in this monday. I'm going to try and weigh myself only once a week. I don't plan on losing 7 lbs. again but I am shooting for 2 :)

Good deal about Keith's work coming in, I was glad to hear there was a medical issue to the quest for babies. Good work on your diet......
