I'm not sure why because I have been getting more sleep and I have been eating well but maybe I have been exercising too much (1-2 hrs), is that possible? When I exercise I tend to go all out and push myself hard. I am pretty sore especially in my arms and shoulders so I'm going to cut back a bit or ease off for a few days. I'm going to keep moving but less intensity. Any suggestions would be welcome...
I've met the 20 pound mark in 1 month and I am overjoyed. Mind you I have worked hard for this. I've also lost 5 inches off my waist, 4 off the abdomen and 3 off the hips. I see a shape coming back that is not round anymore. Another milestone for me (and this one is even bigger) is I went to lunch today with an old friend. I looked up the food options before hand so went in prepared. We had lunch and talked for a solid 90 minutes, then had to say our goodbyes. When I was driving away I thought - wow I didn't even think of wine! Normally I would have a glass of wine with a friendly lunch. If I didn't I would be thinking about it constantly and feeling deprived. Today I didn't even think of it - I felt a wave of liberation flow through me.
I know a month is not a long time and 20 pounds is just a start but I am very pleased. I know there will be hard times in the future but that's where I know I can come here and poor my soul out and get the advice and support I need.
I'm a 51 year old woman who has put off getting healthy for too long. I have seen many birthdays, Christmas', parties, etc come and go when I wanted to be smaller, dress more stylishly, be more confident and happy but haven't had what it would take to get healthy. That is the mindset, the plan and the support needed. I am already looking forward to how much healthier I am going to be for Christmas and for my 52nd birthday - I will be celebrating a new me for sure!
