So, I am frustrated that I haven't lost any weight yet. I haven't gained, but haven't lost either. I know it's been only a week since I got my IUD out, but I am so frustrated. It sucks to work your ass off at the gym with no results, AND to have those stupid personal trainer guys come up to you trying to pitch training sessions (aka, we think you're a tubby woman that we can con into this). When I brushed them off, the guy snottily asked me if I was meeting my fitness goals (aka, you sure don't look like you've met any fitness goals). Men truly don't understand. Anyway, personal trainers are a WHOLE other rant for another blog!
I am also annoyed that my body can't make up its mind whether it wants to have a period or not. I will have a flow heavy enough for me to scramble for a tampon, and then it goes away in a few hours. It happens just about every other day. I guess I should be careful what I wish for, but I really wish my body would just follow through and have the period of the century and get it over with. It's like come on body, could we please start getting back to normal?!?!
On a positive note, getting the Mirena removed will cure any libido problems you have. When I had the Mirena, I went from having a better than healthy drive, to being almost annoyed when my husband initiated. I couldn't get turned on at all, which sucked, because the hubby does everything right and then some. Well, without elaborating, I am just about back to normal, and I am loving it! It's the one area where I feel like I'm succeeding, and it makes me feel like a real woman again, if that makes any sense.
I started taking Vitamin D supplements, and I think that has helped with my mood, as well as the IUD removal. Vit. D is proven to help depression, plus your body needs it for calcium absorbtion. So ladies, make sure you are getting enough Vit. D, especially if you've been feeling blue lately! I am trying to go as natural as I can, and thwart off the pesky Rx meds the doctors think are so wonderful.
That's all for now. Hope you ladies are doing well, and that post-IUD life is going well for you.
