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!
