It’s been quite a ride the past few months! There have been so many changes to report on this Fitness Friday! I’m holding steady with 30 pounds lost and I’m continuing my running plan. It was a really rough week, but I managed to get through, to the other side! PHEW! I’m so glad this week is over!
I’ve been on “Metabolic Adjustment” at Lindora. Metabolic Adjustment is a way for the body to adjust and to trick it into continuing the weight loss. The goal is to help transition patients that have completed their weight loss to transition to eating, without losing weight, AND, for patients with weight left to lose, it readjusts the metabolism to jump start weight loss at the end of the metabolic adjustment period. I’d say this is the most challenging of my weight loss so far. However, I’ve been learning to embrace the entire process. I know I can trust the process and that they know what they’re doing—but the number on the scale! *&#$%* Ugh. Sometimes. I. can’t. The scale has been bouncing up and down about 2 pounds over the past week. I’m maintaining and that’s what I’m supposed to do. I don’t have to like it though!
Running has been a challenge this week. I’m tired some mornings and do not want to get out of bed at 5:30 a.m. to go pee, let alone get dressed and go running. So, I don’t—Go running that is. I’ve been going at night instead. Every morning, when I get up, I secretly hope my friend doesn’t want to go at 5:30 a.m. The other morning she texted and said she didn’t feel like going because she had a headache. I was so happy! Not that she had a headache, of course, but that I could close my weary eyes for a wee bit longer. To say it has been a struggle is an understatement.
I’ve been stopped a number of times this week from people, to tell me that I’ve lost weight. “You look so good!” “Wow! I can tell you lost weight!” “You look different. Your face…what’s different?” “You look so healthy!” I have to say, my day has been made every time I’ve heard a compliment. I know I’ve got so much more work to do, certainly I’ve got a great start so far.
I’m going to continue another 10 weeks with Lindora and I couldn’t be more excited! I purchased 10 weeks worth of the booster and lipotropic injections to compliment the program. On Tuesday, I start another 10 weeks and my goal is to lose another 30 pounds. I’m so motivated to continue! I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for me!
My goals for this week are to keep up with the running schedule, check in at Lindora five days a week, eat what I’m supposed to, and keep on believing that I’m making great progress! My water intake has been abysmal lately, so I’m going to attempt to increase my water intake this next week. I want to drink at least 90 ounces of water a day. It’s so hard sometimes! I’m going to challenge myself to meeting my water goal every day this week!
What is your goal for this week? Happy running!
