I'm psyched about finally gettin out of the 260s. When I stepped on the scale I was confident all the healthy choices and exercise i put in for the last 2 weeks paid off. I really didn't have to step on the scale as I know I lost 3 inches since September. But when I did I broke off from my plateau of losing 4 lbs from 264 to now 260lbs. Can't wait to see the 250's and going down another pants size. Size 18 is fitting me nice but I don't want to get to comfortable in them. I already have a pair of size 16 that's waiting for its debut lol. Those pants is my goal for the next 2 months. I could remember when they couldn't even fit on my calf, lol. Now they can fit over my butt but my stomach is impeding the progress😕. No worries, I'm determined. It's incredible to see how far my body has gone from my highest weight of 325lbs. I wish I took more full body pics but I see the shame I was feeling so I took almost none until I started losing weight. Its crazy how I look in the mirror and finally see a difference. Before I only saw the difference in what I wore or my belt size, smh. Then came the difference of weightloss when I started walking the mall and walking long distances when I was running errands. My back, neck and knee would be in pain. Now I can almost skip around, lol. It's about progress and I'm slowly making it. I thank God for blessings me with each step I make in attaining my healthy lifestyle goals. Also to my family and followers who give me words of encouragement. We know in life we have to do it alone but it feels good that someone does say a kind word or press that like button for the extra boost of "I hear you girl" or "keep it going your doing great". Thank you all for being a source of strength.
Peace and Blessings
The struggle is real..smh!
I did my 10 day weigh in and gained two pounds. I'm not disappointed in the gain its what I did to gain it. I've been in my feelings as of late and it's really hard to snap out of it. I need to strengthen my resolve in God. I need to Stop holding resentment in a situation that can't be controlled. I know it will pass but it gives me a reason to eat(binge). Even though that's not an excuse. I will own it. Yesterday I must of ate every hour that I was awake. I haven't done that in a year or more. Can you imagine? I worked out 4 days in a row and had good meals the whole time. But that one day can ruin the whole week if your trying to get on the path of being healthy. The struggle is so real. I have to press on.
I had a good week though my attitude could of been better. I know taking steroids for my ailment puts me in a different zone that i don't want to be in. It's just that I get short with people lately and it's like a slow moving avalanche that I can't stop. When it's over I'm like damn! Really chick? You need to sit in the corner.
I was talking to my mother about her acting some type of way as she's on prednisone. Hyped up and just all over the place. I accept it but I see she can hurt herself when she's in that zone. She called me on my bs saying I'm just as off the hook as she is but in a antsy way. Lmao! i except and will try to do better. I don't want to get my ass kicked by my mom who has the best right hook I Know. Lol! Ok I digress.
I have worked out daily and my eating has been good. I've kept up with not eating past 7pm. I have been sleeping good and restful. Also I continue to drink a gallon of water a day and that helps me with not feeling hungry or dehydrated. Keeping a daily journal of my food intake and fitness minutes on my spark page keeps me grounded. I see the fruits of my labor. As I said before i love to juice but I have to focus on being able to eat with no issues. It's working so far and my body is responding very well. Well that's my week. How's your week going? I hope it went well and you have a even better next week. Peace and Blessings!
Today I found out staying focused really paid off. I lost 5 lbs by staying in my calorie range, not eating after 6pm, drinking a gallon of water a day, work out 5 days straight then rest 1 day and 1 day of 30 minutes of stretching or yoga. Though every week my body changes and may go into a plateau this truly works for me. I had to find a good eating habit as I was depending on juicing alot to lose the weight. That's not my reality. Since I lost the 30+lbs a couple of months ago while juicing I really had to come back to just eating healthy too. Is juicing my go to for a great reboot? Most definitely!! Now getting in a good eating and workout habit is just as important. I don't treat myself with food anymore. I had to get out of my headspace of thinking everytime i do something im suppose to do i wanted a treat...smh! If I'm gonna treat myself for losing all this weight i will go on a adventure vacation. Zip lining, white water rafting, canoeing, hiking and all the things I felt that was a struggle for me. I just want to be a more active me. I'm well on my way I feel. I thank God for his blessings as if it it wasn't for having faith I wouldn't be to this point. Peace and blessings on this Snowy day in NY! hope everyone is being safe in their travels.
Today I've been working out 5 straight days. With Gods grace and mercy he pulled me through. Also my sis had to motivate me to get this one in. Lol! I was tired as i woke up at 4:30 am and didn't even try to go back to sleep. Pinterest is the best, lol but I know I will get some good sleep tonight. No looking at Pinterest! Ok the workout was Kickboxing power again and I rocked it out. Tomorrow will be a day to rest. I read where working out too much will fatigue your muscle and will cause pain and injury. I don't need anymore injuries. Well I hope everyone had a super Sunday. Peace and blessing to you all.
