Hello Friends and Family!
I am still here and still on the journey!! It's been a busy couple of weeks! I didn't get a chance to update last week. I stepped on the scale last Wednesday and I didn't lose, and since I was preparing to leave for FL the next day, I didn't take the time to update my blog.
When I arrived in FL last Thursday evening, I was talking to my Mom about my weight loss and how it was getting a little frustrating since I have been exercising almost every single day, and even increasing the intensity. She asked me what I eat in a typical day, and I told her that I was consuming quite a bit of fresh fruit. Like almost living on it, because I LOVE fruit! She suggested that I eliminate fruit just for 2 weeks and see if that makes a difference. Maybe I was consuming too much natural sugar, which equals a lot of calories! Well, I did as she said and I lost FIVE POUNDS this week!!!!
Who knows, it could be the way my crazy body works or it could be that I was, in fact, eating way too much fruit! So, I will go another week without any fruit at all and then gradually add a small amount back into my diet. She explained that fruit should always be eaten in small amounts, especially when trying to lose weight.
It's amazing the things I am learning as I continue this journey!
Since June 1, I have lost 40 pounds! I am feeling better than ever and SO thankful for your prayers!! God is so good and I continue to press on and let Him carry me through each day!
