I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up on my blog in general, but especially so for those readers who have been keeping up with my personal weight loss journey. I've been in the midst of what we all know as the "plateau" and can't seem to shake it. I haven't worked out in over a month, so it seems. I also have been terrible about eating out and eating lots. Not 100% into my old eating habits but enough to where I am scaring myself a bit.
I guess when I think about it, there has been a bit of extra stress on my mind here recently and while I am also in the middle of my busiest season yet - I'm finding myself always working and never wanting to get up to work out. All I need to do is go to my basement and spend 30 minutes a day working out. It was so easy in the beginning! I just lost that fire inside of myself and need to regain it. I've somehow been damn lucky to sustain at 189-190lbs during this slow point and not budge.
I was hesitant on talking about this, but another huge reason for this weight loss is because of my personal health. I recently went to the doctor just over a month ago and took a blood test. I found out two days later that at the age of 22, I have high cholesterol. At first, I was shocked. Thinking to myself, how can that even be? Then I remember all the horrendous things I did to my body over the past three years and I literally burst into tears. I know having high cholesterol is not the end of the world and that I'll be okay...for now. Though, if I don't make any real changes this could be something that can kill me in the end.
It was at this time when I really kicked things into gear. Somehow though, a month later, I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. Maybe I need to work on my mind and soul for a bit. Things have been a little off for me mentally for a bit now and I need to get back to a good place emotionally before I feel the urge to continue. That's what it seems like at least.
I swear I'm not asking for sympathy or anything of that nature. I'm just trying to be as honest as I can be with you guys. Without this support system, I wouldn't have gone as far as I have so far. I love hearing from new people or even familiar faces. We're all in this together. All in all, I'm still 100% positive about this entire situation and knew sooner or later I'd hit that point where it wasn't as easy and I would loose focus on things. I lost a lot of weight quickly and now it's time for me to finish the final half of this graciously <3
