The road to fabulousness week 2!

I have been working my ass off, counting calories, and sticking to my diet! Though, I did have 5 girl scout cookies seduce me the other day. It wasn't that bad. I just did an extra 100 calorie workout and counted them as a snack. Things are still going good. I have only dropped 8 pounds this week. That's a total of 25 pounds in 2 weeks! I think that is awesome. I am forced to stop my 2 a days this week due to inflaming an old injury. It totally sucks but it is my own fault for pushing myself so hard. With only losing 8 pounds I still noticed that I have lost more inches on my stomach! I think that is from the machine and doing the crunches with 60 pounds of weights. I am up to 2 miles a day on the treadmill with an incline of 4! I also managed to do 5 squats with 250 pounds on the bar! So it will not be long and I will have all my leg strength back! My legs have always been strong but now I am getting my definition back to my muscles. My back is also coming along nicely! By the end of May I am looking at having abdominal plasty to remove the extra skin that will not be able to be tightened and to have my muscles in my stomach tightened. I am almost to the goal to have the skin removed. So with any luck I will be back to my pre-children body. At least to the healthy Jen. Not the skin stretched over bone Jen.
I have noticed the past 2 days that after my sensible dinner I have been violently sick. I have struggled for years to no longer get sick after I eat, but for some reason the urge is overwhelming. The husband and I agreed that is it continues I may need to stop taking the OxyElite Pro. I have only managed to consume about 800 calories for the past 3 days. I am burning about 400 calories a day. That is not healthy at all so I have had to add some snacks, more iron, and more protein. I will be doing another update next week. If I have to discontinue use I will be updating before next week.
Have a wonderful week and weekend everyone! Makeup Mondays will return starting Monday!
