Did I just say that out loud?

Tuesday, September 08, 2020

Sitting here at work talking with my cousin like I always do. We have always been the bigger girls in the family, and I have always been smaller at her. At least, thats the way it appears.

Today we spoke about our goals, what we want to weigh and such. I nearly threw up having to tell her how much I weighed, after figuring out that she weighed less than I do despite looking bigger.

What a horrible mindset that is, and I know it. Despite how hard it was to even say, I said it. Now onto day three of my restricted fasting.

I am following an intermittent fasting plan called 5:2. You would think this would mean i only fast 5 days a week, and rest 2. Oh no, I fast all 7 days a week, but on 2 days I make it tougher on myself and restrict my calories to a quarter of what I normally eat in a given day.

The first week in doing this I have lost 7 lbs.Lets see what week two brings.

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are advised to do on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals your water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track of when to take my water

    It is so hard to say your weight out loud, but doing so made it real for me. Good luck and take care of your body!
