Wordless Wednesday... But I am not feeling wordless!

So, it is another wordless Wednesday, and I had planned on taking pictures and posting them, but I am not feeling so wordless today.

Yesterday was the day I got my IUD removed... Not sure yet if it was the right decision or not, but only time will tell that! And no, we will not be trying for another baby anytime in the near future! If you know me, you will know that I have had a few health issues since getting my IUD, which may or may not have anything to do with having the IUD, but after having it for nearly 3 years my family doctor has decided that I should take a break from it to see if it helps. Hopefully I will be able to lose weight now, my headaches will go away and my blood pressure will come down.

I did start a better diet on Monday... by better I mean the same diet I tried for 3 months and only lost 2 lbs while I had my IUD in, and then gave up on it. Even my doctor was shocked that I didn't lose 15-20 in that 3 months! Now, that I no longer have the IUD I am hoping doing the diet again will work. If it does then that means I made an awesome decision by having it removed... If not, then not a bad decision but I will miss having my dear aunt flow staying on her long vacation (its been over 2.5 years since I have had a visit from her)!

However, I do feel my diet will go better this time because I did put 65 lbs on within 6 months of getting my IUD, and I was doing nothing different (not eating any differently, working out the same, etc).

Again wish me luck, because I am going to need it!

  1. Good luck with your diet! I'm on one too.

  2. Hello there~ I'm your newest follower! Love the title of your blog!

  3. Best of luck on the weight loss. I joined WW a few weeks ago and am doing okay. I used them before (pre babies) and had good results.

    I'm a new follower from Wobble Over Wednesday, I'd love it if you followed me back. :)

  4. Ah man, good luck! I feel ya though...I've tried so many birth controls. Some make me crazy, some make me emotional, and some make me fat. I swear, can't they figure this out already!

    I'm so glad you love my shirt! It's probably my favorite and I get so many compliments when I wear it. You should totally go for it!

    Thanks for joining us on Follow Me Wednesday!

  5. Thank you everyone for your good luck wishes! It means a lot because I need to get this weight off (I was born with heart defects so being heavier is not the best thing for my heart/body).
