Another Late Update


I have had a lot of thoughts looking over what I've been eating and how much it contrasts with what I was eating years ago to try and lose weight. I mean, look at my Instagram. Look at my menus I posted last week. It is crazy to me that I used to have to battle myself all. day. long. to restrict to 1300 calories or less just to lose like a pound a month. It was really hard sometimes. And I weighed a lot more than I do now. It was kind of miserable. It felt impossible. I am very thankful not to be in that place anymore. I hope my peace with food is permanent. I love this so much, just not having a major food "issue" and living life without that being the focus.

I got busy and didn't post a weigh in on Sunday, but I did get on the scale and saw 181 pounds, which is down 2 pounds from last week. Looks good to me!

Wow, congratulations on the loss. I am glad you're eating real food and not just shakes this time.

I love the tone of your recent posts, and that you're able to continue your progress toward a healthier weight. I know you're proactive about your health so my inner voice keeps telling me to hush..... but I have had several experiences where weight loss seemed almost easy and in reality, it was due in part to an underlying medical issue. So.... I'm proud of you for not giving up and hope that you've found the balance that works for you. And please do keep up with your annual physicals so you can continue to feel great ~
