Brook update

I've decided since we've been so busy updating everyone about that baby that Dave and I needed to do separate updates for us. So here is my update:

You may have noticed my "ticker" on the top of this blog. I've lost 18.5 lbs as of this morning! I've actually changed my total goal from 35 lbs to 40 lbs. Which makes me almost half way there. I haven't noticed much of a difference but Dave and other people say you can tell that I've lost the weight. I'm on my 3rd day of Clomid and so far I've felt mostly the physical side effects more than the emotional ones. My face is breaking out, I've felt super nauseous and tired and I've had some pretty wicked head aches. Seriously though, I far prefer these physical effects to the roller coaster of emotions last time around. I'm still pretty functional and not crying all the time! Dave and I are constantly discussing if we want to continue with the hormones next month and/or the month after. We just have to take it one day at a time.
I'm pretty much dying to go to the pool and now that Carter is finally feeling better there's a thunder storm. Boo. Hopefully this weekend.
Our 4th anniversary is this Thursday but I will wait to post about our fabulous date until it actually happens!
Sorry this has been so jumbled, but now a days it's hard to just write about myself. I'm sure I forgot tons of stuff, so I may do a follow up. Look forward to Dave's post as soon as I can nag him to do it!

You're so lucky that your abs became so definitive so quickly!

Karen, pretty hot for 7 am!
Rachelle, you are too nice! Not really much definition and it didn't feel very quick! I still have more than 20 pounds to go and then we can talk!
