I have PCOS & anemia and because of them I don't follow a mainstream diet. Some of my posts include controversial information and topics. If this bothers you then please don't follow me.
*I'm currently not weighing in. After a 2-month plateau I switched to measurements.
I just realized I haven’t made any personal posts in a while; I didn’t think there’s much to tell. I’ve been really busy so I haven’t even been online much. So how about a quick catch up?
I’ve tucked away the scale because my life was starting to revolve around it again. I also put away my food scale and counter and just went back to eating the way I use to; half a plate of low GI vegetables and 4-7 ounces of protein (depending on my level of hunger). I’ve also added more fat into my diet. I feel so satisfied lately that I’m rarely hungry. I am a little worried that my calories are too low most days but I feel good and I figure if my body is running low it’ll let me know.
My workouts are currently rotating between a week of Turbo Fire and mixed cardio followed by a week of walking/jogging and strength training. It’s working out really well, it feels like I’m giving it my all for one week then get plenty of recovery time. Plus it’ll keep my body from adjusting to the routines.
I have no idea what my weight currently is but I do feel bonier, and the other day I was at the store when a girl I hadn’t seen in months loudly announced to everyone, “OMG your freaking legs have gotten even thinner, that’s not fair!” Once I got over the initial embarrassment I decided to take it as a positive sign of over looked progress. I didn’t think it was possible to gain anymore weight by toning my muscles and that the slow drop is just stubborn fat. However a lot more muscle is showing under the flab lately and I think I’m still around the same weight so…Weight loss is proving to be long and very unpredictable. I’m even starting to question my goal weight. If I’m looking this good and I’m not even under 200 yet I may just stop when I like how I look and feel, screw the numbers*.
*Of course anyone who has been following me long enough knows I’m obsessed with numbers, but I’m working really hard to stop that.@1 year ago with 2 notes
