Day 85 and counting
October was a very trying month. I didn’t gain but I didn’t lose either. I mainly maintained the weight I’ve lost. At a doctor’s appointment I weighed 305.6 which had me down 25lbs but since then I remained at 22lbs down. On one hand I’m proud that I haven’t gained all my weight that I’ve lost back But on the other I want to continue losing.
The 1st challenge I faced during the month of October was getting sick. I had a really bad sore throat and eventually lost my voice. I couldn’t eat much and when I did all I ate was soup. I did try to drink a lot of water. Luckily once I began to feel better I began to eat normally but still in small portions however I wasn’t eating healthy meals. I was eating whatever I wanted I had lost my drive and motivation.
The other problem I feel that came up is October is a tough month for me to begin with. It’s the month that my grandpa who was basically like my dad was born and passed away. This October was much easier thanks to my boyfriend’s caring nature but it’s still rough. There are some days I feel down and other days I feel up but ultimately I am trying to be as honest as possible with myself and those who have been supporting me on this journey.
The support I have received online has been tremendous. People I know personally and people I’ve met on Facebook have really made me feel like what I am doing is worthwhile. Words like “inspiration” comments like “you motivated me to get moving” or ” to go to the gym” make me want to push through and continue. I thank all those who have commented, messaged, emailed, snap chatted and approached me in public, you keep me from giving in to old habits, thank you. Thank you to my friend who has gone with me to the gym early in the morning I appreciate your support.
Come join me on the Highway to Health!
