Guess what? I’ve gained 20 pounds.
I’m not happy about it, but I’m not going to beat myself up about it. I could write a long, thoughtful post about why I gained the weight, but I’ll spare you the excuses. I gained weight because I’ve not been eating healthy food and I’ve not been working out. (And maybe, just maybe I stopped taking metf*rmin without my doctor telling me to do so and well, I probably shouldn’t have done that.)
Today, I’m putting a stop to being unhealthy and unkind to my body. Today, I stop focusing on the “how I got here’s” and put all of my energy into “how I’ll change going forward.”
Here’s the plan.
I want to lose the 20 pounds I gained over the next 3 months.
How do I plan on doing that?
I’m going to put spiders in all of my food and drinks. Just kidding. Although, not my worst idea ever.
It’s simple, really.
A liiiiiiiiiittle less caramel cheesecake bites and a lot more fruit and vegetables.
A liiiiiiiiiittle less sitting on the couch watching Real Housewives of Everywhere and a lot more running, squats, sit-ups and push-ups.
Also? I will take all medications that have been prescribed to me by my endocrinologist until I am told it’s okay to stop taking them.
Dealing with Hashimotos and insulin resistance and my other health problems makes losing weight complicated, but I’ve done it before, I can do it again.
I will do it again.
Yeah hear me? I’ve got this.
