Keep in mind these muscle pants? Hahaha, I have not worn them in SO long–I feel 2013? I hoped to put on them to cross nation follow in the future as a result of I feel the youngsters will get a kick out of them, however even at this dimension, the seams seem like they will tear aside at any second. I want I would ordered a big! These ones are a small and couldn’t be any tighter.
As you possibly can see, I am nonetheless having to prop the mirror up for my Wednesday mirror selfies. The toilet is taking endlessly to complete! When Jerry works nights, he sleeps till 2:00 within the afternoon, so I do not need to wake him up by engaged on the lavatory. I often begin making dinner at round 3:30 earlier than everybody has work, college, or my cross nation follow. So it would not give me a variety of time to work on it. I have been doing a bit of day by day, although, even when it is simply mudding one or two corners of the drywall.
Anyway, I am nonetheless getting the hold of upkeep so far as my weight goes. I am not actively attempting to lose any extra weight, however the scale was down fairly a bit once more this week:
I used to be at 127, which is down from 128.8 final Wednesday. It is ironic, really–I spent a lot time counting energy to drop some weight, however now I am attempting to *cease* shedding weight and I am rising my meals consumption (and I assume energy). I have been including further meals right here and there; within the evenings, I’ve began consuming a bit of cup of peanut butter (2 ounces) for a deal with, which is 400 *scrumptious* energy.
I really feel actually good and wholesome (a minimum of bodily; I nonetheless really feel extraordinarily overwhelmed mentally proper now) so it isn’t an enormous deal if I lose a bit of extra weight. However I like the dimensions I am at now, so I will proceed so as to add energy right here and there till my weight stabilizes. I’ve by no means actually been in “upkeep mode” earlier than! Even after I bought to my objective weight a few instances, I used to be nonetheless counting energy and it did not actually really feel any totally different than after I was shedding weight.
My mind continues to be catching up so far as this latest weight reduction. I keep in mind being this dimension earlier than (again in 2016) and feeling enthusiastic about it, but additionally scared to loss of life of placing the burden again on. So I used to be very cautious about counting energy, and finally, I put the burden again on anyway.
I am engaged on a Q&A submit about my latest weight reduction as a result of so many individuals have been asking questions on it. I am probably not positive what to put in writing that I have not written already, as a result of I am not doing something particular. I feel turning into vegan and rising my fiber a lot has had an enormous function in it, however I’ll write what I can. I additionally collected a ton of images of what I have been consuming, so I will submit these as properly.
I’ve an appointment subsequent week with my physician for an annual wellness go to and I requested if I may get a complete panel of blood work to see if/how consuming a vegan eating regimen has affected my well being (apart from my weight). I am VERY inquisitive about this–particularly about my ldl cholesterol. It has been eight months since I turned vegan, so I feel that is a very good period of time to see a change, even when it is a small one!
