On The Road Again...

Except, it's not work this time: we are leaving today for our Hilton Head vacation with Steve's family. Yeah!! I've been doing okay these days, but have been very, very busy!

For one thing, I've been busy booking flights, hotel, and car rentals for our trip to CCRM. We're leaving out on July 2nd (appt. on July 3rd). So, this has been a "good" busy!

I've also been working out every morning at 5am. Fun. And, I wish I could say I have something to show for it, but I've only got a mere 4 lbs off this body. That's it. How can one be counting every calorie and working out daily and only lose 4 lbs in 3 weeks? It's called being a 33-year old woman with a screwed up metabolism. Lucky me. Steve has been only dieting and has lost 24 lbs. No fair!! I've just gotta keep doing it until we start another IVF cycle. I can't gain another "IVF 10" and expect to fit into any of my clothes at all! So, I'll have to stay the course, although the course hasn't been treating me so nicely. Figures. I never get a freakin' break.

On the flip side (except for the above bitter comments), I'm still mentally better. Thank goodness for drugs. :-) I don't know how I could be doing anything right now without the Wellbutrin. But, I thought Wellbutrin was supposed to help you lose weight (okay, bitterness creeping back in...).

Work has been good, but crazy as usual. So, I really can't think of a better time to take a vacation. I hope all of you are doing okay. I think about you girls all of the time! Thanks for all the kind and uplifting comments on my blog. You all are the best! :-)

Glad to hear you are feeling good! Have a great vacation - we'll be here when you get back!

It's so unfair how men lose weight so much easier! You should start sneaking extra calories into his meals to slow down his progress! ;)

Have a fantastic vacation - you deserve it!

It sounds like a vacation is just what you need right now. Enjoy every minute of it!

Yay for vaca, Jill-- you deserve it! And don't worry about the weight thing. You're doing everything right. And the slower it comes off, the longer it stays off. Or some horse shit like that :)

Happy to hear from you! I am glad you are heading on a vacation and getting ready for your visit.

I applaud you because I tried working out at 5am, I make it about one day a week. Good for you!

I hope you have a great vacation! How nice :)

I hope your weight loss gets to where you want it to be. I laughed when I read "IVF 10" - that is so true. I have had many sad dressing-room-moments over the past 2-3 months...where you can't believe that even though you're trying on the bigger size, it still doesn't fit?

Can't wait to hear about your vacation! Have fun!

Vacations are necessary, especially during this IF roller coaster.
I hate how easily men lose the weight--but you'll probably find you drop a bunch all at once. Hang in there and GOOD LUCK in Colorado!

I hope you are having a wonderful vacation. I'm back to work today and jealous!

I think that 4 lbs in 3 weeks is a PERFECT rate of loss. Very slow and healthy... and you are probably losing fat, not muscle.

Enjoy the beach. :)
