Another week has passed, and its time for a weigh loss check in.
This past week was actually pretty strange for me. I was dealing with serious stomach problems. It was so not pleasant. It absolutely hindered my weight loss efforts, I couldn’t eat and some days I felt so sick, I could just lay on the floor.
It was awful. I don’t know if it was the flu, or food poisoning, or maybe, listeria caused by recalled nectarines…which I ate an entire case of from Costco. Ok that’s unlikely, but the good news is my tummy seems to be on the mend.
Surprisingly, my weight was down this week. I guess that’s a plus to being sick.
Workouts Last Week:
Um…None. I started a workout on Wednesday but I was so sick, I ended up quitting a few minutes in to the workout. Not my finest week in the workout department, but my body just couldn’t handle it.
This week I’m starting a brand new program and I’m really excited about it, I fill you in on the details soon.
Last week I saw this article making its rounds on Facebook, and its really resonated with me.
This is written by Isabuea Miller, a former contestant on The Biggest Loser, who like most people that have lost weight, gained much of the weight back after returning to real life and a baby!
Hmmmmm….sounds familiar, seeing how I gained weight after starting a desk job and a baby!
Points # 1, 2, 3 and 5 really hit home with me.
Being fat isn’t the problem. Thinking poorly of myself about being fat is the problem.
Being overweight isn’t what holds you back from living your life: Being ashamed about being overweight is what holds you back from living your life. And once you stop feeling ashamed and start feeling alive, I promise the momentum of your happiness will drive you to make choices that allow you to become more alive, more excited, and more capable.
Self-worth and weight are not equal! The have nothing to do with each other.
I highly recommend reading that article! Its very enlightening. Perfect for anyone in the middle of a weight loss journey.
