Author of Once Upon a Surrogate: The Stork’s Helpers, started the phrase “I’m not the mom. I’m just the stork”. Surrogacy has opened many doors for me which led to a happier, more rewarding life. (Inactive as far as the Mormon part, still spiritual, open and respectful) My surrobabies were born in 2006 (girl), 2009 (twin boys) and 2014 (girl). I am a huge surrogacy advocate and creative entrepreneur. Hoping to match for one final journey.
Eat an apple (usually 1/2 because I cut it up and share it with my girls)
Do 30 minutes Wii Fit Plus Basic Step and Rhythm Boxing, sometimes a little Kung Fu Rhythm
I do the Yoga every morning. Everything else is switched up a bit. I do Biggest Loser on the Wii 3 times a week for 30 minutes. I do Strength Training with Wii Fit Plus every 3 days.
I am able to think more clearly. I sit up a little straighter/taller. I feel skinny. I know I'm not quite there yet, but I can feel that I'm skinnier. My 7 year old daughter even told me this morning, "Mom, you're skinny!" Made me smile.
I have been an example to my children. We all take turns on the Wii. It's awesome!
So to update, I've been on Phentermine about 7 weeks. (plus working out and cutting calories)
My scale says I've lost about 9 pounds. More importantly, I'm fitting into new clothes I bought last year that I had outgrown. Yeah I had started losing weight last year, got frustrated and felt stuck. So now I guess I'm back to where I was then, only I think a little bit better. It's empowering and it feels so darn good!
I found my measuring tape, so I took measurements today. Boy do I wish I had found it 7 weeks ago. Oh well. I will try to update at least once or twice a month.
