I'm so excited to report that I've had some serious weight loss. 6 whole pounds gone, baby!!
For someone who had pretty much given up on weight loss, and was instead concentrating on health, this is HUGE!
But best of all, I think I've gotten over the fear-hurdle. I was so afraid of losing weight, of failing, of succeeding, that I know it was really holding me back. Just like a plateua, though, I held strong and busted through!
I'm not really sure on what helped me get through it, but I think it had a lot to do with letting go of my fears, and trusting that it would happen, when the time was right.
I also believe that a lot of the weight loss can be attributed to the fact that I am on such a low dose of steroids now. Alternating between 5 and 4mg/day, and fighting every second to stay there. I am determined to get off this drug, as all of you know! My body seems to be treating it like crack, and I've been told repeatedly by my doctor's they've never seen anyone so addicted to it. *Grumblegrumble stupid lupus grumblegrumble*
Either way, I'm glad to see the pounds going away!
And, this weightloss thing is kind of addicting. I find the more good choices I make, the more loss I see. The more loss I see, the more good choices I make. On the other hand, the more good choices I make, the more I research, and the more changes I make. Slowly but surely, I'm becoming a healthier and healthier person, and getting to where I never thought I could get.
It's turning into a snowball here!
I know you've probably heard this a million times here, as have I (for years now!) but if I can do it, YOU can do it!!
