So, here’s my weight:
I am disappointed, but also happy to have ammunition to use when people pressure me into doing things that I don’t necessarily want to do like drinking, staying out super late, having a piece of pie, etc. I’m not blaming anyone, because my choices are my choices, but the next time someone says to me, “Come on! Lighten up! One poor day of eating habits isn’t going to make a difference!” Yes, yes it is. Well, I guess one day doesn’t matter that much, but I tend to get carried away. When I give myself an inch, I take a mile.
No regerts (Yes, I am alluding to that Milky Way commercial)
I went on vacation and basically reversed my progress and then added more weight on top of that. I am not beyond my heaviest, but I am beyond the weight I was at when I started this blog at the end of June. I should have seen this coming, though. I also think it’s important to note that I dropped my dose of Vyvanse down to 50 mg. Stimulant medication does rev up your metabolism. I reduced the amount of stimulant medication I was taking, so that coupled with my “vacation” mindset did not do me any favors. However, at the end of the day, I chose to eat the things I did and I chose to not engage in much serious exercise while I was vacationing. To be honest, though, I don’t regret what I did. I enjoyed spending the time with my family, and I got some much needed rest and relaxation. I feel recharged and ready to get back at my healthy lifestyle.
I also ordered a new Fitbit today, because the strap on the one I have now broke while I was out of town. So excited!
I also want to announce that today begins my Noom Ambassadorship. There’s a great deal going on with Noom right now that you might want to consider. The link is to a unique opportunity with Noom where you can try for free for 2 weeks (the typical free trial is only 1 week) and if you decide to actually stick with Noom you get a 20% discount off a customized Noom Healthy Weight course. Noom has changed my mindset so much about weight loss, and honestly if it weren’t for Noom I would have given up trying to lose weight and I would still be engaging in a lot of counterproductive behaviors without even really understanding why. Noom is not a quick fix, however. If you are looking for a way to actually change your lifestyle and your mindset with support from a group of like minded individuals and a coach, then it is worth giving it a shot.
