Mad Dash

Today I weighed in at 116 lbs. That’s three pounds lost and a whole inch off from last week. Talk about a mad dash to the finish line, although what I’ve been doing to achieve this incredible loss hardly seem anything like a “mad dash” or any sort of movement at all. I’ve had strep throat. Eating had been a struggle, since everything tasted and felt like rusted nails. It’s getting better, but this is where I should be careful. Not only in overdoing with the food, but in getting back into exercise. I will most likely gain some pounds back, but I don’t want to backtrack too much. On the flip side, certain family members are definitely voicing their concern regarding my weight loss. I understand, but I’m also starting to get annoyed.

On other news, while I was sick I was also out of Internet Land and unbeknownst to me, Crabby had posted my guest post. I can’t believe all of the positive comments I received! I just wished I was cognisant at the moment, I could have responded in kind. It was a how-to regarding procrastination. Much different than anything I’ve ever posted before, but I thought it came out okay.

I love your guest post, WOW! What an honour to be guest blogging for Crabby McSlacker! :-D

I get what you mean with eating being a struggle and so forth; I switched from intuitive eating to calorie counting when I was unwell to make sure that I didn't lose too much weight. I think the biggest thing you lose in situations like this is MOMENTUM - which is why I often generate a lot of concern by going to the gym when I'm sick as a dog O_O

Family being family and much worse asian, no matter what you weigh, they are always going to comment about it. Everyone has an opinion. Just take it with a pinch of salt.

Good luck with after being sick days. I know what you mean. I lost around 2/3 pounds and the weight is fluctuating a lot of daily basis now that I am not sick anymore. I have to be careful with what I eat and I am going to start working out again. I started by cleaning the house. Wish you all the best!!

I'm so sorry I gave you such short notice that the post was running! It was a great post, and everyone really enjoyed it.

Wish I was a bit more organized and had let you know sooner. Sorry to hear you were sick and hope you're feeling better.

Thanks again for helping me out during vacation!

Great post. It's always exciting to get loads of feedback!!

I fear no one’s opinion! I am knowledgeable, focused, and efficient. I make this priority and build from experience. I do this for my children and myself. Supported by love, I will persevere.
