So I haven’t posted in a while about my weight loss journey. Mainly because I keep changing my mind about what I’m going to do to lose weight… and it’s a struggle ya’ll. Since starting the blog over in July (my new beginning), I have done weight watchers, counted calories, and started a beach body fitness challenge…. and I’ve also quit it all. But this shouldn’t have to prove to be the same for everyone. Plan a schedule and prioritise your food kind.
Crazy huh! I have come to terms that I’m definitely a junk food and sugar addict, as I consider them to be sources of energy. I’ve hit lows and took measurements and snapped before pictures that made me cry. It’s not been a fun ride at all these first 2 months. But I’ve lost 8 pounds through it all. Not where I want to be, but I’m not hating on that number… Nope. Not at all.
There have been some habits forming. I drink a protein shake almost every morning for breakfast. I eat salads usually for lunch. And then, we eat whatever for dinner (within reason). It’s been doable. It’s easy to keep up with and I can live with these changes. It’s not too much at once. I’m not overwhelmed. Which I think is pretty big in my overall success – current and future. My medications have also changed. I’m also drinking much more water and down to one diet Dr. Pepper a day. And overall my fasting blood glucose levels have been decreasing. There’s a lot to improve. I do need to increase my exercise activity. And I will.
So while there’s not the huge progress I may have wanted in my head, there has been progress and I’m OK with that. I’m really OK with it. I’m happy. Now, to continue on.
