No pounds came off this past week….BUT on the bright side, no pound were added! So I’m still at 303…..:(
I think this might be the first time since I started that I haven’t had any loss in a week and it IS a bummer, I have to say. I’m not giving up though, I KNEW it was bound to happen at one point. Just got to push through and keep going! Hopefully next week, I’ll go back to shaving off a pound or two a week, at the least!
Never giving up! I went to the doctor today for my weight check and since I haven’t seen HIM since three weeks ago, all he noticed was a drop of 8 pounds since then and he was really proud of me. It feels very rewarding when people notice my weight loss and tell me they are proud of me. Like I have said before, when YOU’RE the one losing, sometimes you don’t notice as much because you live with yourself ALL the time. It’s hard to notice the changes except for in how you feel and how your clothes fit. Hearing that others SEE a change makes me feel that I AM making a difference and I AM doing well. Of course, it’s not about looking better cause I weigh less…it’s about me feeling healthier, less depressed and what my doctor said today when he commented on how I get around better. I walk with a lot more confidence and it’s easier to walk now that I’m not so close to 400. 😦 I’m embarrassed I ever allowed myself to get to that point but I have to remind myself that it wasn’t because of laziness or pigging out that I got there. It was based on not eating as healthy as I should combined with a medical disorder and depression along with a loss of hope. I still don’t know what got me to have hope again. I know having a blogger friend who was changing her life inspired me but even with the inspiration, it took awhile for me to be in the right frame of mind to go for it. I am SO thankful that I found hope, though and there’s no turning back now. As much as unhealthy food might taste wonderful at the moment, Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels! It’s just no longer worth it to me to eat unhealthy food all the time. Once in awhile is fine but eating healthy 99% of the time makes my body feel better which in turn keeps me from being depressed ALL the time. It’s so worth it and it’s about so much more than the numbers of what I weigh and the size I wear. It’s about being healthy. 🙂
See you next week for the next update!
