It’s been about 6 weeks since I have done a Weight Watchers post…. 6 weeks. And to give you a quick summary I my weight went down, down, up, up, down and this past week I opted NOT to weigh in.  I’m sick, I’m on my period, and Ive reaching for anything hoping that I can taste it.

The truth is weight loss is HARD…. Really Hard….. and it sucks! BAD and it’s one of the most frustrating things that I have ever encountered. I often feel like my body is working against me. And although I keep attending meetings I’m starting to wonder if my journey with Weight Watchers is over. I losing 4 pounds and I gain 4 pounds….. but I won’t get lower than a certain weight…. and I’ve been holding steady there for several months, after talking to my leader she suggested that I speak with my doctor; and my doctor gave me some insightful information,  this is the lowest weight I have been healthy (I’ve been 160 pounds but I was really sick and one I got better I quickly gained that weight back). Most people won’t say it but losing large amounts of weight then gaining large amounts of weight tends to do something to the body.

This could very well be the weight that my body needs to be at (considering my health issues and he fact that I’m prednisone)…. She suggested that I give it 6 more months…

In the meantime I’m changing it up, I’ve started running (I know who am I…. I can do about 40 minutes which is about 1 1/2 miles…. the goal is to see if I can run an entire 5k without stopping). Speaking of 5K, my third on is coming up in June, and I have to say that my time improved during the 2nd one, so I’m happy about that.

I think I didn’t realize how hard this was gonna be, the longer I’m at it the harder it seems for me to get results, I don’t want to quit because I know if I do, I’m going to gain the weight back and I don’t want that. Six months….. I can give it six more months…. and hopefully the small changes that I’m making will eventually start to produce results.

I’ll be back next week….

Appreciate The People In Your Life

Positive Outlooks Blog

Life is not a race-but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say “thank you”. “I love you”, and “great job” to someone each day. Take time for prayer. Be thankful. Love your life and what you’ve been given, it is not accidental. Search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself. Plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you’ve been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment.Bonnie Mohr

Before you ask the title of my book would be: “WHAT THE FU*K?! – The Chronic Misadventures of a Spoonie “

I have a “special brand of humor, snark, sass, whatever you might call it, I unfortunately can sometimes be blunt to the point of hurting someone’s feelings so I’m gonna need someone who understands that, better yet someone who’s like that unfortunately I haven’t meet too many people like that in my life, but when I find them I cherish them like mythical unicorns. And one such unicorn is my friend Kayly who gives zero fucks, tells you like it is and is passionate about her causes, and would totally use the word fuck appropriately and often.

Although I’m not sure she would want to want to; cause I believe she’s working on her own project, but I will defiantly keep her in mind. But I’m a firm believer that snarky, bitchy, opinionated (spoonie) women should stick together!

 

Until Next Time
