I drank a Dr. Pepper with some Dr. Pepper coffee creamer this morning which I then threw up. But I kept down the pretzel roll and the half can of soup I ate. I'm around 880 calories which includes the Dr. Pepper. So again I don't know where I'm at calorie wise. I was a little bit less on the scale today still at a 10 day low.

As of now I've thrown up everything I've eaten. I thought the soup would have been digested by now.

So I am super low on calories at 1,169 plus I threw everything up anyways. So idk

I've lost 7 pounds now and it is obvious. Today I've had about 960 calories so far and my stomach has been relativly calm all day although I did just blow a chunk of beef jerky a few minutes ago. I got some of this already toasted bread from Walmart I can eat to try to calm my stomach if things get out of hand.

Edit: I'm only around 1100 calories and I really don't want to eat anything else today. Nothing sounds good even if I weren't trying to lose weight.

15 minutes on the recumbent bile with pretty high resistance

60 mins of very relaxing restorative yoga. One of the other class attendees fell asleep!

I lost another few oz which puts me just at about 8 pounds lost since April 4th. I'm feeling pretty sick today and I've already thrown up a couple times. So far I'm at 675 calories, 132 carbs, and 20 grams of protein. I swear the loss of appetite and weight loss is the Prestiq and the daily vitamin I started.

I've heard theres shortages of weight loss meds and so some people are gaining all their weight back. I hope they don't try coming for Topamax next. I need that for my moods too.

My weight loss has actually stopped. Maybe because I'm eating more too. I decided I am going to talk to my doctor to come off some of my psych meds. That Lithium is a killer for what I am trying to do. I don't need to be on this strong stuff anyway, I have been stable for almost three years now.

20 mins on the recumbent elliptical for a warm-up. Very low intensity with just a few short bursts at high velocity

55 mins of strength training

9 mins in the sauna, then a hot shower and moisturizing

Feeling serene now

I've gone from 217 to 209.6 since April 4th. Its been a combination of not feeling good and my new meds and improving my sleep and overall diet.

Today I've had 1,071 calories 132 carbs and 38 grams of protein.

My stomach has been messed up a couple times today but it hasn't been like yesterday.

The scale hasn't moved in a week, and then I gained a pound - probably because of that grilled chicken wrap I had a couple of days ago. I think I am going to attack this whole weight loss from a different angle by working on my meds - the Lithium has been known to cause weight gain, and I think it's making my diet impossible.

Need to definitely work out more too. The scale is not my friend. : (

I have lost a few pounds and this moved me from extremely obese to just obese.

60 mins of yin yoga today. Doing my laundry now. If I get it done fast enough, I will squeeze in some rowing later in the evening.

And, wearing a weighted vest while doing laundry. That is something, too.

I ate most of my calories before 11AM. Breakfast was 788 calories which was eaten before 6 and none of it stayed down. Then I got a grilled chicken wrap from Subway around 10AM. I drank a Gatorade between 12-2. I threw up a bit at 2 but I think things stayed down for the most part after 6AM.

I'm around 1500 calories today.

OMG! I wore my 12 lb weighted vest yesterday while doing chores, laundry and picking up around the apartment. The vest seemed so light! And no wonder since as of recently I have been wearing the 20 lb vest more often.

I now have the 20 lb one in the car. This is for the gym or if I find myself somewhere where I want to go for a walk wearing it.

I have the 12 lb one in my apartment, for doing chores in, cooking in, etc.

Went on the scale this morning and was completely defeated. The two measly pounds I have been working on for weeks to lose I gained back. I don't even care anymore at this point. I just wish I can stay fat and happy at this point.

At 1500 calories for the day.

An ad flashed at me today on the web: a month's challenge of wall Pilates! That is when I first heard the term wall Pilates. Best of luck to you with those.

Maybe 1500 is too little. Insufficient calories and your body thinks it is in starvation mode, holding on to every calorie you feed it for dear life.

Did no exercise today but did chores that required walking: took lots of returns to Nordstrom and UPS (walking to and from the car) and then organized my closets (in two bedrooms), a grossly overdue task. Very happy with the results. Also took out lots of cardboard recycling.

Forgot to put my Oura ring in the morning when I left house (it was still charging as I charge it first thing every morning). Put it on when I came back. It shows 6558 steps, all from chores at home. With walking earlier in the day that was not recorded, probably hit 10K steps.

Did not wear my weighted vest while doing chores at home because I was trying various sandals (in shoe covers) and I only wear a weighted vest when I am in HOKA sneakers which offer excellent support. Just did not want to risk doing something bad to the body by wearing a vest while in flimsy flip-flops.

So overall it was a rest day because all the walking was slow.

But tomorrow... Orange theory in the morning and personal training in the evening.

This morning at 5:30 I had an order of Dennys berry stuffed french toast and a zero sugar creamy coconut Dr. Pepper. Then I got sick. I got a toasted marshmallow iced latte with almond milk around 9:30 which I've kept down.

So far I'm at 1,080 calories, 174 carbs, and 25 grams of protein.
