Oh heavens yall. I am so sorry it’s been so long. Life has just been so good, I promise. My absence is nothing bad.
I continue to be happy with my weight loss. Sometimes I am still in awe of it all. Like for once in my life things are going my way. But don’t worry, I know I have to continue to stay focused and keep plugging away. I am eating good and not having too many issues. Drinking lots of water and my 2 cups of milk a day most days. I have also added back 1 protein shake a day because my hair is falling out like crazy. I probably should have never dropped that 1 shake so shame on me! 🙂
Wow, look at that! I have increased my steps all weeks except 1 week! I will say that last week had a huge boost due to Trick or Treating with my kids! 11K plus steps in one day alone! I also am excited to say that I am hitting the gym 3 days a week. I am there to focus on my arms and abs. I also do some time on the treadmill to warm up. I expect that the muscle gain will affect my weight, but I do understand that and will not freak out if it happens. My scale is one that measures all that on top of weight. I may start charting some additional numbers so that I know things are moving in the right direction if I have an off week!
I feel like things are just cruising along for the most part. My hair loss has been pretty significant. After tracking my protein intake and speaking with my dietician I realized I am not getting enough protein so I have added back 1 protein shake to help with this. I may even do 1 1/2 until my hair stops falling out! Hopefully I will get this under control before I am half bald!
Life is good and busy. Kids are back in school 5 days a week so at least I am getting more work done. I have also started a new endeavor that came out of wanting to take better care of my skin. I joined Rodan & Fields. I have pretty good skin, but I would like to keep it that way and they also have this roller thing that will help tighten up the skin on my face and neck which are becoming quite saggy due to the weight loss. I can’t wait for to see those before and after pics. I will share once I have them! So excited.
Thanks for all your friendship and support. Just knowing people are reading my blog makes me happy because then that increases the chance that someone is reading it that needed to. I want to help people. I want to hopefully help ease peoples pain so that their period of suffering is less. It helps make the pains of my past all worth it if I know I have helped someone!
Have a blessed day!
