Hello! It is another amazing Saturday, and we have all made it through another week. I am up in weight this week. Last week I was at 245.8, and this week, 247.6. And I am not surprised at all. I have been in a lot of pain this week, and I started comfort eating. I am still 75.4 pounds down. YAY!
The weather is changing. It isn’t a bad thing, but it is a hard thing for me. My joints are hurting a lot. It is hard for me to function right now. But I am trying to get out to walk my short walk in the mornings. I missed two days this week. But I am doing my best to keep moving. This morning, I was hurting so much before my walk, I forgot to take my photo! So, here is me in my size 20 jeans.
Comfort eating. Yes, I get to own this. I know I comfort eat when I don’t feel well. I think most people do. Comfort food for me is always ice cream but also ordering delivery from Red Robin. Gimme a burger and zucchini fries! There is also an uncomfortable side effect of comfort eating foods that I don’t eat regularly. It wreaks havoc with my intestinal system. So, right now, if you say I am full of $h!+, you would be right! It is also part of the reason why I am up this week.
I took a good look at my body when I got out of my shower. I am starting to see the sagging and wrinkles on my stomach, my inner thighs, and under my arms. I have always known this was going to happen. It is very different to really see the effects of the weight loss. So, I have two choices right now. I can be distraught and self-conscious, or I can see sagging and wrinkles as a badge of triumph. And I am going with the latter. My body is full of scars. Each of those scars tells a story about my life. These are just another part of my story.
Please remember, you never know what someone is going through in their life. Right now, things are extremely difficult for so many people. So, please be kind, especially to yourself.
