So, I went to my endocrinologist the other day who has put me on another medicine. This is all fine, and Im healthy, however this new medicine is totally screwing with my sense of hunger. Im starving, but the minute I eat Im two mouthfuls in and Im not hungry at all. Hopefully it all settles down, as its kind of frustrating after spending the last year trying to better understand my 'hunger signals' to find now they are completely unreliable!!! But on the other hand, I see this as a positive. One thing Ive learnt over the last year, is you make more progress from the challenges we are presented with and learning how to deal with this in a healthy way, than throwing up ones hands and saying, right its hard, back to the old ways!

One year ago, when i hadnt been to the shops, got back from travelling and had nothing but the staples in my cupboard I would have been grabbing take away or making up some horribly unhealthy concoction.
But today...not at all. Even though i was almost expecting to go through my cupboards twice in the search for something healthy just to be exasperated or cave to whatever I had on hand, I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Id stocked up on healthy staples from which I could make a lovely vegetable pasta. Its amazing how much what you stock in your environment can influence how successful you can be on the healthy living/weightloss journey.

I got to the point earlier this week where i was equal to the lightest Ive ever been since joining spark (as I put on a couple of kilos over summer and placed myself on maintenance mode as I needed a bit of respite and time for reflection). Now Im back on 'weight loss mode'...and although I thought wow, Im kicking some backsides here and going to track, I was then hit with a 1kg gain overnight. I was flabergasted, and to be honest its the first time this has happened! I was already getting frustrated that the 3 kg that came on and stayed on over summer were difficult to loose, to then backslide was pretty disheartening.
The 15kg I lost over the last year has been not easy, however I would say it hasnt been a challenge nor felt particularly frustrating, however these next 10kg seem to stubborn and it feels like I am constantly having to reevaluate my exercise and diet regimes to get the next 0.5kg to budge. Dont get me wrong, this was also what happened on the first 15kg, but these days Im starting to run out of positive lifestyle changes, in particular in regards to diet.
I know that this is probably just a low point, and its not my first, and probably not my last plateau...however I just wanted to have a bit of a rant and get it off my chest!!
On the upside, even though the scales arent budging, the measuring tape is still cooperating and Im continuing to see other lifestyle/wellbeing improvements, so its not all doom, gloom and negativity!
