The Girl Who Could (Formerly) Eat Anything

Getting fit and taking names

Enough is Enough

I’ve given this losing weight with Mirena thing my best shot. I’m done. I’ve had it. I finally called the doc and made an appointment to have it out. I.Can’t.Wait.

What I’m doing now is following Weight Watchers closely and exercising pretty much daily so that, first, I will have a several-weeks-long log to show my doctor if she doubts what I tell her about the weight; and second, so that when it’s gone, I will be in a routine and won’t have to start from scratch. I’m hoping by Halloween to be down at least 15 pounds, but it will all depend on whether I can have it out on September 11 or later in the month (it’s an insurance thing). It may end up being just 10 pounds, but I’ll take it! Heck, I’ll take one pound at this point.

I’ve discussed this side effect with a few people around the Internet. One woman said she dropped five pounds in water weight the first week after she had it out and continued losing at a steady pace from then on. So, fingers crossed.
