***Disclaimer…I thought I posted this on 1 Sept. I did everything apparently but click publish….ooopsie***
Today is the expiration of my first goal on this new journey. And I arrived with grace…at least until I started typing.
Then the tears started to well.
I missed my target.
*Why the hell do I have tears…I’ve been fine until just this moment…DEEP BREATH*
But, I did power through the goal. I didn’t sit down on the last step and pout because I knew I was not going to make it…I pushed through it.
Here’s the photo of my ankles…mind blowing that this is a “good day” isn’t it. The creases are from my flip-flops. 😦
As far as weight loss goes, this kind of CRAP from my body goes beyond fibromyalgia. No doctor has ever been able to explain it. With the amount of water, activity and protein I had yesterday I should NOT be retaining water. Did you know your body needs protein more than water to process extra water through your kidneys?
It is also not an excess sodium issue as I really hate salt. I never salt my food and I did not have salty foods yesterday, “So body WHAT THE HELL!!!!”
Okay rant over!!!
It’s not helpful…okay there for a second it was. Now, on to the positives…
I stuck to my plan even in the moments I wanted to stress eat this week (it’s been a lil’ bit o’ hell this week).
I HELD A PLANK ON THURSDAY!!! It was just for a second, two at the most but I did it.
My son squeezed my shoulder and said, “Mom…..you’ve got muscles.” Major non-scale victory!!!!
And best of all, I looked at my journey with real eyes…I wasn’t perfect and I accomplished more than I thought.
I recorded my true weight so I can start the next goal from that point…something I’ve never done before.
I set my new goal right away…not even a day’s rest…time to FIBRO UP and keep moving!!! literally.
Here are my final results…9 July to Sept 1:
8.6 pounds GONE!!!! and 15 inches LOST!!!!!!!!
Next goals…261 pounds by 6 October with a long-term focus of going under 250 by 15 December….moving forward.
