Hello Everyone? How are you all doing on your various healthy journeys? Our house hold is still trying to get over respiratory flu! Yuck. This is Day #6 and I still barely feel like moving around. The kids are all 1-3 days ahead of me and are gradually getting less grumpy and less slimy! LOL Right now I'm focusing on keeping my lungs clear.
Yesterday I weighed myself and my eyes popped open! I was 310# - 6 pounds in a couple days. Now I would have really gotten excited about that except that I know my body will probably put 2/3 of that back on when I begin eating. Proof today was that I was 311# after having a little bit of food, one being sort of a meal. My stomach still is not excited just typing about food. I am going to try to be cautious to not stretch it beyond where it should be as I get better. The last time I saw 310# was when we were TTC our son.
So, since I have lost more than 20# since last summer, I am noticing some differences. I have gone down one panty size, 1/2 a pant size and I would have gone down at least one shirt size except my "twin belly" doesn't seem to lose any size! I have a feeling that will only come with lots of ab workouts! People don't notice any change, although I am starting to see it in my face and maybe in my bra. Why do we lose weight where we don't want to and where we want to it is super-glued to us for life?! LOL
Anyway, all these little changes are a boost and help me keep going. Remember I am not on a diet, but at the same I am conscious not to sabotage my health efforts by eating tons of junk food etc. But what is hard for me is when I am walking some where and I see my reflection. Then it is right there in your face exactly how big you are! And it is discouraging to feel like you are working hard and making changes and exercising and you still look like that!
My question for you this week (since I'm sick, this will be a short and boring post) is, what keeps you going on your journey when things like this try to side track and discourage you?
As always, if you leave comments, I will know to pray for you in your journey! :o) More next week!
