The Changes Have Only Begun
Saturday, September 21, 2019
I spent years feeling like I could not control anything. Feeling like I was crushed and falling apart. Feeling like I was broken and could not pick up the pieces.
It is now September 2019. My best friend is now my husband, he is wonderful and supports me in every way! I have a new job since I was here last, I have been at Blue Cross Blue Shield for about 2.5 years now. Back in school finishing my bachelor's degree in Health Care Administration. It feels like a whole new vision of life.
I changed doctors after trying and trying to lose weight and not losing although I followed things perfectly. Found out I had a ton of things wrong with me; my hormones, thyroid, and depression medication was just the beginning. I've spent the last year getting this all fixed. On September 4 I stepped on the scale at the doctor's office and found I had gained back 82 lbs of the 180 I had originally lost. I was getting close to 400 again!!!
I stepped back and decided THIS STOPS NOW!! That exact same day I started changing things. in the last almost three weeks we have stopped eating out, no more fast food! I put the soda down, cold turkey. I took it slow and spent the first week and a half working in the good foods again. This last week I added walking at work and have set a goal at 5000 steps, to begin with. I have dropped 15 lbs so far and averaging about 2 lbs a week, which is fine with me. As long as the scale keeps moving in the right direction, it's not important to me how fast anymore.
I am not done yet, I still want this, I still believe I can and will do this!
Right now I'm eating a balanced plan, not sure if I will stay with this, I tend to want to carb cycle, but I don't know yet.
~Out of the house at least 5 days per week.
~At least 5000 steps per day.
~ Follow my eating plan to get back on track.
All the support I can get, I appreciate greatly!! I will return the support as well!
