It's a Weighty Issue

So I was doing really good with my weight loss. Just last week I hit the 25 pound weight loss mark. 

And then the prednisone and general lack of feeling terrific caught up with me. If I'm being honest I haven't gotten back to a normal routine since I first got sick. I'm not sick anymore but, I have another week on the steroids still.

Having to give up control and keep taking them when I want to be losing weight has really been frustrating. My weight went up this week for the first time since July. 

I have to keep reminding myself that I am not a number on the scale. And that this too shall pass. 

And I think this is a good reminder that I can't always rely on myself. I need help in this journey and if I don't seek it out and accept it when it's given, I will fail. 

Tomorrow I'm starting things fresh. When I get the steroid munchies (SERIOUSLY has anyone else ever dealt with them???) I am going to eat an apple. Haha this might be TMI but I have a feeling my stomach is going to be quite thrown off by all that fiber. 

And I'm going to work out every day again. No more excuses. NONE. 

No I have a headache or I'm tired. None. I will get up and I will work out and that will be the end of it. 

And no more snacking on bad things. 

I cannot wait until the Halloween candy is OUT of the house. Any we have leftover is going straight to work next week. I will not be tempted. 

Here's to a fresh start tomorrow and continuing to be healthy, which is the most important thing!

Oh my goodness, I gained 9 pounds over the summer (starting in April) and STILL have not lost a pound of it. Well, one week I lost 3lbs. but the next week I was right back up again. You'll do amazing getting it right back off! This is a really tough time of year for all. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas!

Hello, I'm another SC blogger. :)

"Snacking on bad things" doesn't have to be bad...I don't think that anything is bad for you if you have it moderation. But I agree that it's good to get out of the habit of regularly snacking on less-healthy stuff.
