11/27/13: Progress. Weight gain. Blah. Changes.
Hello, my lovelies. So, here is the news I’ve been dreading to post. I’ve gained weight. I had been maintaining at about 230 for a good 3 months, but in the past few weeks I’ve gone back up to around 237ish.
Honestly, I feel really mixed about this. Like, personally I feel really shitty about it, but on the other hand, gains happen. Life happens. I’m also glad I’ve caught it at the point where I’m only up 8lbs. I could realistically see that gone by the end of December especially because I’m pretty sure at least some of it is water weight. Another reason why I don’t want this to seem like it’s the end of the world is because I have so many amazing followers and I would never want any of you to feel like gaining while you’re trying to lose weight is something that should be seen as shameful or failure. It’s just a number. Even if I (or anyone) gained back literally everything they had lost, the changes you learned to make are still valuable.
So, onto the changes portion. I’ve decided that for my body, it would be best to stick to unprocessed carbs from fruits and veggies pretty much exclusively. I’m not going to go and cut grains completely out of what I eat, but I do think that realistically the percentage needs to decrease. I’m still not eating meat or dairy (for the most part) but I am sometimes eating eggs.
Sooo, yeah. I’d really like to get this weight back off because it’s just weirdly all gone to my face and that’s just not what I want.
Current weight: 237lbs
