It has been a little over 4 months that I started my journey. I have been up and down but making great progress. Three months ago I was diagnosed pre-diabetic, hyper tensive with a possible liver issue. Well with hard work, I have reversed everything. Although my journey has been frustrating, I am still making progress and I have lost 40 pounds.
40 pounds in 4 months is not bad and actually the healthy way to go but sometimes I wish I lost weight faster. I know that is unrealistic and have come to terms with this thinking.(I hope). My doctor said if I hit a plateau I need to continue for my health. I take that to heart because I am now the healthiest I have been in maybe 10 years.
When the scale doesn't move or if it moves the wrong way it gets very very frustrating.
I ran into this two weeks ago and I just pushed through but at half measure. I have now gotten back on track and learned from some mistakes I have been making in the gym. I do take a rest day, which is Mondays and it seems to help.
I eat decent healthy meals - meat, veggies, fruit, pasta and grains. I drink green tea and water. I don't do Meatless Mondays anymore, I don't really see the need. I eat fish, turkey and chicken regularly. I eat red meat occasionally.
I have a long way to go but I am committed to getting there
