I bet you thought I have fallen off the edge of the world, or given up on losing weight, but you can rest your worries, as neither is the case.
While on this journey, as you know, I have struggled with time spent on weight loss, and balancing that with my life. And as much as it was a personal goal of mine to blog daily about my weight loss, I find that it is not practical. So you will not see me blogging daily about my weight loss journey, but I will blog periodically whenever I feel that I have something significant to share, or if I am struggling and need support from all of you.
I have also come to find that it is not always possible for me to exercise three days a week, and walk three days a week, but I am able to work out two times a week, and get as much walking in as possible. It seems to be working from me, and I am comfortable with that.
I have to tell you, I have never experienced or have ever noticed the stress factor concerning weight loss, and would not even have thought it could be an issue if I had not read about it quite recently here on SP. But that is exactly what I was experience. I stressed myself out over reaching that 320 lb goal. I was doing everything right, yet I was not budging off of my 321.5 lb weight. So I became discouraged, and had a break down. So after going through the "whoa is me thingy", which was quite ugly, I just ate what I wanted for a couple of days. Then when my daughter came back over, I got back on track, and I have been on track this whole week.
I did weigh myself this morning out of curiosity, and I am not going to post what I weighed myself in at, because I don't want the stress of worry over it, and trying to keep that weight, or to lose more. But I will tell you that it was lower than the 320 lb. goal I was trying to reach. So I look forward once again to my Monday weigh in.
Not much else is going on except that I seem to be coming out of the fog I created for myself, and I can clearly see once again the goal that is before me, and how to reach that goal.
So lesson learned, and it was a good lesson. I now have more knowledge to add to my arsenal to help me in this literal fight for life. I still am firm in my belief that this is my LAST weight loss journey, as I must do it for the sake of my health.
Have a great day, and I will talk to you soon.
Peace & Love!
