I hoping some of you ladies can help because I feel like ive been kicked in the stomach.
I started the last challenge with the intention of losing weight, get fitter and look after my failing body. My boobs lost a cup size and my wedding ring went back on, I didnt stand on the scales. My victories were non weight based, my mental health improved, my pain tolerance improved, naturally my diet improved.
All wonderful and I am delighted, really I am.
But yesterday I went for a day out and my camera happy sister took my photo with my kids, she sent it to me last night and in that moment I could feel the tears roll. I looked the exact same as I did 7 weeks ago.
And I know that's so superficial. And I know I should be all body positive and loving the body I'm in. But I put on 1 & a half stone in a year and I cannot look at it. I dont want to learn to love it, i bloody hate it!
So i stood on the scales this morning, nothing! Not a pound. And all the goodness I felt has just seeped away. I feel so bad even saying that and complaining! I dont even know what to do next, I'm a plain fussy eater so I dont eat fried or fast food, I did calorie track a while ago so I have an idea of what I'm eating, I cut down on all my sugar and I dont crave it as much, loads of water, sleep is improving.....so should I add another workout daily? I already do 6 days of lives with one day rest, one live each day!
I guess I thought the first photo I took into this journey would help motivate me, but it did the opposite🙈 my emotional eating trigger is gone mad and I want pringles for breakfast now!
