One Fourth of the Way There!

Saturday, October 19, 2013

It's been about five weeks since I got determined that I would lose the weight and keep it off this time.
I've lost just over 1/4 of the weight I need to make my doctor happy already.
I've found a food and exercise plan that works well for me.
I've discovered what has been causing the skin problems I've had over a year, and they're bettering as I deduct what I can eat and can't. I break out again when I eat something to test it, so far, but I'll get there.
I'm actually kind of thankful for the huge amount of allergies, in a way, because I have such physical consequences if I eat the old way, that I believe I don't have much of a desire at all to ever gain the weight back again through eating wrong. Who wants to deal with sores on their skin? I've scars enough already, and that's not pretty, but especially the sores on my arms, and often upper chest/neck area - not pleasant for others to see. They are clearing up. I'm soooo glad. I'm grateful to know there is the ability to get rid of them, and perhaps lessen outbreaks big time. That's a huge blessing to me.
So I will rejoice in it all!
