I’m really sorry guys that I have not kept up with the Wednesday Weight Loss Journal thing. I’ve really let life get in the way. I promise I am getting back to it though. Here is a health tip for you that I have personally discovered. I for the longest time was doing the elliptical 30 mins a day 5-6 days a week and maybe lost 4 pounds in a matter of MONTHS. Then I got an infection and stopped for a few weeks. When I went to the doctor they said I am in the “obese” catagorie (GREAT there goes my last shred of my self confidence) and that I need to lose weight ASAP. So I decided…..
to cut out ALL my snacks. I usually have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2-3 snacks..(sometimes 4 if I am being honest during the day). For the past two days I have been doing this. Granted, last night I ate an entire bag of light butter popcorn because I was starving my ass off from only having 3 meals lol but it’s a start! Today I weighed in at 192.6 . This is lower than I have been in a long time! I weighed in at the doctor a few days ago at 196. I have exercised only once so far this week. The snacks that I eat during the day I did not think were bad for me. We are talking fruit, nuts, veggie chips, etc. Turns out, they apparently are packing on weight. 😦 I just wanted to warn people who are struggling to lose, exercising, and feeling totally burned out that eliminating snacks might REALLY help. Hoping next week I will feel less hungry. It’s like going off of diet coke. You crave it, feel like you can’t live without it, then the feeling passes. ❤
I also read an amazing quote today in the SELF magazine. “Skinny isn’t sexy if you are dead.” This means: diet safely, make sure you get enough calories, and focus on health not starvation. If you diet/eat healthy for the right reasons & the right way the weight will eventually come off. For all those struggling please don’t give up. I have my days believe me where I want to stay in Pj’s all day, not go near a mirror, and heaven forbid walk outside for others to look at me. I get it. I’m Mrs. Body Dismorphia right here. But we must fight back because this battle is possible to win ❤ I have to believe that. Hope everyone is having a nice week.
