I haven’t posted in a while because my weight loss journey has been kind of a nightmare over the last couple of months. I had a 4-6 week weight loss stall in which I was bouncing between 212 and 215. Given that I was under six months out and I had not altered my dietary regimen, it was scary as crap!
“Fine. I’ve lost over 70 pounds” I thought. “While that may be great, I’d like to lose another 70. So, this is NOT okay!” Two or three weeks into the stall, I began weighing and measuring everything I put into my mouth. My nutritionist doesn’t ask me to do that but I figured it couldn’t hurt just to be able to actually see how I was doing with respect to my diet. It looked fine.
About three weeks ago or so, I began adding in about an hour of cardio a day. Thankfully the scale FINALLY began to move again! In fact, It moved rapidly. The scale’s movement has slowed down now that I’m convalescing from something that has been causing me significant back pain for about two weeks (which I’m getting checked out today) but it is still moving.
SO, today is the day! I reached ‘onederland’ (that magical place that people who become morbidly obese dream about whereby your weight starts with the number one again)!
