Fear or Bravery???
Friday, October 05, 2012
I really didn't want to weigh myself this morning...I had some salty foods yesterday and was so sure I was bloated but I did it anyway and look!!
In the 250's I struggled to even imagine getting into the 240's....and I did it!!! I got in and got through it! I'm so proud of myself!!
I haven't been at this weight in 6 years!! I've changed what I'm eating and I walk hard enough to sweat every single day. 2-3x a week I strength train at home using only a chair, a wall and a resistance band. I found what works for me and I'm going with it until the end!!
So I have questions about avoiding "shrinkles"
Shrinkles = losing so much weight there is now loose skin
Is there anything I can do now while I'm still at the beginning of my journey? Any foods that will help my body skin shrink? Or become more elastic?
I know water is huge, and strength training is huge...but what else?
I use a good lotion every day on the area's I think will be the worst...I was curious so I looked on you tube for video's about people who have lost 100+ pounds (most seem to be gastric bypass) and loose skin.
Almost had a heart attack....seen some graphic stuff about people who had the surgery. One girl took a video every day of recovery and showed everything...omg it made me cry out of sadness and fear.
I'm not going to lie it scared me pretty bad...but I want to keep going. I want to lose this weight.
I have to remind myself that I battled through a lot of fear just getting through the 240's...and in the end I made it through and it was all much worse in my head than it was in reality.
I'm back up for battle, and this time it's on the 230's!!!
