Thanks, Sami. It's good to know that someone else was able to pull it off. And - wow. 130 is, like, my dream. If I can crack that I'll be over the moon.
I was just coming here to add an update - I was at a friend's apartment where I supposed to be helped her pack for a long vacation, but instead I ended up stealing her bathroom scale (probably a bad idea in the long run, but in that moment I loved it so):
It says that I've gained 3 pounds
, up from 93 pounds to 96 pounds! Queue the ticker-tape parade!
Of course, I've been cramming food into my face like there's no tomorrow (my week of caloric debauchery to make up for the kidney infection diet), but I'm already planning out high-fat, healthy(ish
) meals and snacks.
Also, I've always been able to eat a TON (I been able to out-eat my two 6' 4", 200 pound uncles since I was fourteen), it's just that with my thyroid as it is putting on weight is near impossible. Now, though? Now I will stuff myself even more. And if anyone is impolite enough as to ask me about my eating habits? Well, I've got my response planned out: "My baby asked for it." I figure that short statement will give them a good enough headstart before I proceed to kick their butts.
I'd like to break 100 before my second trimester starts. I've got about 3-and-a-half weeks to go. Let's do this thing, huh?
