I've always prided myself on being honest with people, even if it doesn't always go well for me. I see no point in hiding the truth, especially when it stares you so plainly in the face.
After thinking about it for a while, however, I see why people connected to that post in particular. Yes, I was honest, but I was honest about a very sensitive matter. Two, actually, if you want to include depression in there as well. No, I did not post my actual weight (I'm saving that for a big reveal at the end of my journey), but I didn't shy away from my issues either. Most people lie about their problems and pretend nothing is wrong. I see no benefit to such an arrangement, but to each their own.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me! It meant a lot =)
Okay, on to the actual update. I can now happily say that I have lost and kept off 25 pounds. I haven't weighed myself yet today, so I have no idea if I've lost more. My pants are VERY baggy on me now, to the point where I can't wear them out of the house. It looks like I'm wearing clown pants. I'm happy about the weight loss, of course, but it makes picking outfits difficult at times. I've been reduced to wearing some older capris I had in my closet (but hadn't worn in over 2 years, LOL!)
Sadly my arms have been hurting a lot over the past few days, which makes it difficult to do elliptical, but I'm trying to stay positive! So long as I keep to the points, I should lose weight even without the additional exercise. That definitely helps me, personally. I love working out (well, okay, I like it as much as a normal person likes working out), but on the days where I simply can't, it's nice to know I'm not losing any ground. If I was just relying on exercise, I would feel horribly guilty if I missed a day or two.
So there you have it! What have you been up to this week?
