Then on Tuesday AF came! Finally. I knew it was a factor in the weight issue given on Monday I was now 303 (ugh) by Tuesday night I was back down to 300 (that’s 3lbs of fluid in just a day dang!).
I decided on Tuesday that I was not going to put so much into what I eat. I mean I plan to eat good don’t get me wrong. But my life shall not revolve around it. I do know I have to watch my carbs, we don’t feel at this time gluten is my issue.
So this week I got me spinach wraps, some brown rice again and finally felt “normal”. I ate as I was hungry and pretty much for the most part what I wanted and I am happy to say the scale today was 297 (down 3lbs from last Friday!).
Now, I’m not super excited given I was 294 a few weeks ago BUT that’s okay. I think I have a nice flow going. I go to the gym now about 3 times plus a week, I am watching what I am eating. I also stopped weighing in so much.
I still will be weighing in on Tuesdays because of my Challenge and I have considered making that my weigh in day for at least during the challenge but I will let you know for sure on that next week. I don’t want to get too caught up in a number.
I know with me working out several factors can cause a gain (like swelling) so I don’t want to get too upset and undo all I am trying to accomplish. I will say I would LOVE to get under 280 that is actually my first goal! I know it should be less, but I was just below 280 when I started gaining again so to go below will show my body is finally working with me.
Please pray that SOMETHING will work here. I am sick and tired of weighing this much, fighting, watching every bite, to really go no where. People run circles around me, I mean it’s bad to compare but it’s soooo incredibly hard to watch others bust their butts to lose weight and lose all the while I am still struggling not only to lose BUT to keep OFF what I lose!
So for now I am happy and will consider this a victory.
