I decided to keep going to Voices to workout. Stephanie assured me I am making small gains. I was able to open the refrigerator by myself. Plus it gives an excuse to get out of this hell hole of a building. I love the exercise bike. I need upper body strength. I think we get to a place where we all want to give up, but we can’t. We got to push through, so we can persevere.
I lost 4 more pounds, which puts me around 116 lb. I went to the Erie rib Fest, so I probably gained those 4 pounds back, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it. I feel like I slim down a lot and one binge day does not define me as a failure.
My doctor says I need to lose weight and bring down my cholesterol. Be honest I know I’ve been overweight for a long time for my size. I’m having a hard time committing to healthy eating and I’m not very physically mobile, so it’s hard to burn up the calories. I wish I knew somebody who was going through the same thing, at least I wouldn’t feel so alone.
