"...3 weeks ago I got the stomach flu really bad so I didnt exercise for a week (it was a BAD flu) - then the last 2 weeks life has honestly been so so busy that the time I finally get to rest its bed time. I know, so many excuses. I am so frustrated with myself. I have wasted 3 weeks now of complete crap. The scale doesnt say ive gained but I feel like complete mush and waste inside...."
O.K. WHY do you think that you wasted THREE WEEKS! The flu got you good and proper, and in spite of what you may think, it you don't get over it that quickly - your body still needs time to recuperate properly. You had been on the go in other ways so something has to give.
The next thing is this, why on EARTH would you be beating yourself up??? You have LOST 27lb - it took me 8 MONTHS to lose a little less than that! You should be CELEBRATING that you are succeeding. I know you want to lose 'x' amount of weight for a wedding , but that is where you are going wrong. You will be looking tons better already, and anything more that you lose between now and then will be a bonus. Others will notice your loss, and your body will be thanking you for it - in your BP, your bloods and various other things that you may not even think of.
Remember to start out with your exercise regime again with baby steps - don't rush in to where you left off!
