Well this sucks. I actually gained weight this week. A few weeks ago I hit a plateau at 197lbs, but throughout this whole journey I haven’t once gone up. This is the first time I’ve actually gained weight.
I’m not worried though because I am confident that my weight will continue going down again next week. Just the other night I weighed myself and I was 192.8 so this is just a minor setback.
I’ve been feeling a bit off today and yesterday. I’ve been having dizzy spells and today I was dizzy and my stomach was feeling crappy, so maybe something is happening with my body that is causing me to not lose weight. The only thing I can think is that perhaps the Michelina’s isn’t agreeing with me. Who knows, but I am going to be strapped for cash this month so I can’t exactly afford to buy the weight watchers.
Perhaps it’s stress that I am unnecessarily putting on myself because I haven’t had a lot of views or sales on my Etsy shop. Since I’ve been browsing other peoples shops and their items, things have been picking up for me. People have been clicking favorite on my keychains and my shop, so perhaps being social will help me get some sales. I was going to save the money from the keychains and earrings for a new bike so I can exercise, but if I have to use whatever money I get from Etsy for groceries then so be it. I just put my Nintendo 64 on ebay, so hopefully I can sell that to help me with groceries, who knows if anyone will buy or even bid on it though.
I’m sure things will work out and next week I will have more weight loss. Who knows, I might be 191 next Saturday. I’m not going to expect it though, if it happens, then it happens. If it doesn’t, then it doesn’t. No big deal. It’s not like I’m trying to lose weight to fit into a particular outfit by a specific date or anything. I’ve been fat all these years, what’s a little set back going to do? Nothing. I have to be patient and know that the weight WILL come off eventually. I got this far in such a little amount of time, so I’m happy with the progress I’ve already made. No worries.
Until next week I guess.
Update July 15: A few hours after I posted this, I… how do I say this without sounding crude? I found out that the reason I hadn’t lost any weight that day was because I had a couple extra pounds inside of me waiting to get out lol. As Jessica Simpson put it, I had to drop the kids off at the pool. I can still say that I gained weight because I was 193.6 last week and this week I weighed in at 193.8. This morning I weighed myself and I was 193.0 so at least I am progressing. I’m not losing weight as fast as I was in the beginning of my weight loss journey, but I am still losing weight and that is all that matters.
