Not much has changed, well.. yes it has. But I have to start at the beginning, the beginning of August that is!
This has been a rough month for me. Emotionally in my weight loss journey I am wanting MORE then what I have done. I am wanting to find even a healthier type lifestyle, and am considering adding in tons more veggies. I still can't seem to process fruits very well ~ I tried and they kill my stomach. I have a feeling it is the rush of sugar that my body just isn't used to A few berries here and there does the trick though, especially frozen ones. I also have been a bit stressed so I want to eat when I am stressed. I have so worked on that, and have come far by leaps and bounds, but... I still struggle. Ice cream. UGH! Summer time has been tough, but I can't be too upset! Over this summer I have still managed to lose 10 pounds! Fall only lends to tell the story of reaching my next goal. I can't honestly say dream goal, because that is 36 pounds away, and may not ever be safely reached. I am all about a safe journey, one that tells it's own story.
Which brings me to my next thought to share. When I was at the gym on Monday (which is one of my favorite parts of the day), I had an lightbulb moment. For so long now, I have longed to write a book. IT is my dream to become a published and established writer. I love reading fiction, christian fiction. I have stories in my head to share but struggle and have for a long time to get them out. My passion though this last (almost 2 years) and really began being birthed in me when I was 9, is to strive to not only reach a healthy weight (as well as self esteem and understand who I am in Christ) but to share that with others, and I long with tears in my eyes to help others (especially women) to see their true beauty in him, and within themselves. So.. I am starting on a writing project on just that! So, I need your help! What would you like to read in that kind of a book? What would make you want to read it? Any ideas? Would any of you like to share your testimony in Christ & with weightloss for me to share in bits & peices in the book? Suggestions, thoughts, and ideas are welcome!
What a wild Weightloss Wednesday huh!? Want to know something else!? I am back on track! No more emotional eating! NO more looking to find comfort in foods that will only lead to the most uncomfortable feeling of all ~ failure. Not failure because I ate any particular food, but failure for not finding another way to express myself when I have so many other outlets.
Weight this morning: 153.5
