Recently I had felt like I had reached a point where I was no longer losing weight. I was stuck. I decided I had to change up my eating habits and work out routine. I started eating a little healthier that I was, more lean. I cut out all drinks except water, even juices are gone. I workout 5 days a week. I am either in the gym or doing some other form of exercise. I have also joined 2 softball teams. One is for work and the other is a team with some friends that plays in a local league. After our first 2.5 hour practice, I was so sore. I used muscles that I have not used in years. Sure I run and lift weights, but actually throwing a softball and batting for hours is so different than what I am used to it. I am one of those people that actually likes being sore after a workout but this sore, was a whole different level. It hurt when I sneezed and coughed! My body is finally adjusting to the new pace and it is losing more weight and I love it.
I am hoping with the change in my schedule that I will see those 9 pounds come off pretty quickly. I have found myself not as hungry and when I do eat, it is not as much. I used to be able to sit down and chow down on some food. Not anymore. It just does not happen. I do not love food anymore, I do not want to go out to eat because I know it is a waste of money for me. I won't eat all the food and I will feel sick afterwards. For me, that is a good thing. It is saving me some money and I am not getting all of those bad calories.
If you are on a weight loss journey, do not give up. For me, when I started, I thought I would never get to wear I am right now but I am here. I have lost 41 pounds, I am down 3 jeans sizes and 2 shirts sizes. That is a huge accomplishment for me. You have to start determined and fight. If you have a bad day, it is okay. You can start over the next day. You are allowed to have cheat days and eat something bad. You just can't do it every day!
