Self Control...I have some?

Today was an interesting day. I felt like I hadn't eaten in months, I was starving from the moment I woke up.  I is also a very victorious day for me as well. I didn't exercise today since I'm using it as a rest day..aaaaannnd. I DIDN'T go over my calorie goal :) I ate all healthy food, except for a bowl of cereal, but I had ONE serving, and only one serving.  I have to say I'm extremely proud of myself today. Can't wait for tomorrow to come so I can make myself proud again.

Yay 3500 Calories officially gone.

Today I weighed in (I weigh myself everyday, it helps me be better accountable) and Was 237. Finally I am seeing a little movement on the scale.  The last 3 days I have been the same, which I'm actually okay with. I just don't want to see a gain. I'm getting nervous because I'm coming to TOM here in a few days and I tend to gain a few pounds. If I notice I can get it right back off again. I am going to really watch my calories and drink tons of water to keep the bloating down.I'm almost certain I'm not pregnant this month so that is what I am preparing for. 

It is amazing how after only 5 days of eating better how much better I feel. I used to sleep 8-9 hours a night and sometimes even have a nap in, unless I had an energy drink. (haven't had one in about a week now) The last few nights I have had to get out of bed after only 7 hours which is great since I work from home I have a few extra hours a day to run my business, clean my house, exercise, make dinner. etc. My energy level has definitely gone up which I love.

Today I am really going to concentrate on Carbs. Really try hard to stay under 100.  I LOVE bread, or anything soft like that. uuummmmm rolls. Yes, rolls it is true you are what you eat. I've ate so many rolls I have some of my own to carry around with me at all times.

Day 4!

I have been extremely good the past four days and am actually quite proud of myself. 4 Days doesn't seem like a lot, but to me it is.  I usually don't make it by the end of the day before I blow my diet on something stupid.  I have been eating fruits and veggies and making healthy dinners.  The other night (Sunday) was date night.  We ate out, I ordered a 350 something calorie grilled chicken sandwich on a wheat bun.  We went to a movie and stopped a gas station to get goodies like normal.  I didn't gorge. I ate ONE serving of Swedish fish. Usually I eat the entire bag before we are ten minutes into the movie. 
I weighed myself today. Only down .4 lbs but I will take it. I am starting to feel better and I don't think my stomach is quite as bloated now that I am getting all the junk out of there so that is a huge plus.
One thing I am struggling with a little is being short of breath.  When I lay down I didn't realize that being fat was a problem, I am having a little bit of a hard time breathing.  Must lose weight!
Well I just wanted to leave a quick update. I will hopefully post more tomorrow.

I know it's wrong to be but I am extremely jealous. So many of my friends, and people I know are announcing their pregnancy.  Many of them didn't try very long where we have been technically trying for over two years. 

This month is one of the first month's my husband really started talking about wanting a baby.  We did the ovulation tracker and did the baby dance during quite a few of the days..put the legs up for at least 20 minutes every time as well. *crossing fingers!* Now we get to play the waiting expected period is supposed to be here the 24th.  Thankfully school will keep me extremely busy for the next two weeks until I plan on testing (if Aunt Flo doesn't make her appearance)  Let's hope she stays away.

I'm feeling a weird pressure in my lower abdomen, I have googled online and everywhere says it's too early to show any sighs or symptoms but I just feel weird.
I did find this however:
Possible lower-abdominal achiness (mittelschmerz): About one in four women feel a twinge or series of cramps in the lower abdominal area — usually one side (the side they’re ovulating from). This pain, which is thought to come from an ovary releasing an egg, is known as mittelschmerz (from the German word meaning “middle pain”).

The pain is more in my right side.
I think I need to get off the internet. I'm just psyching myself out and that isn't a good thing to do right now.
