Well, it’s been over two weeks since my last post. Usually when I disappear like this it is because I am not doing so well. However this time, things are different (FINALLY!).
My weigh in today is 176.2 lbs. Things are moving in the right direction. I do have some help from God these days as it is Ramadan and I am fasting from sunrise to sunset. However, that doesn’t always translate to weight loss.
The days are long, so I am eating around 8pm and then again before sunrise at 4am. There is not very much movement in between, and often times people if they are not careful about what they are eating, actually end up gaining weight. I’m trying to be careful to avoid the regular fried delicacies this season brings on like samosas and pakoras. I’m also having a good healthy breakfast at 4am of a banana, yogurt and granola. This seems to keep me full for the day and I don’t find myself struggling to keep the fast.
This is a very spiritual time of the year, so I am increasing my prayers and remembrance of God. This is making me feel much better about myself. I think having a good relationship with God helps you in your day to day life. I feel protected and secure, my anxiety about things has lessened.
Many of you have moved your blogs off of 3FC, and I was thinking of doing the same thing, however, I was thinking of changing the focus from weight loss alone to a mish mash of everything that I think and care about. I find that spending everyday thinking about weight loss was weighing me down (no pun intended). There is so much more to me, and I am at a time in my life where I really need to figure out what I want to do next. I’m having trouble focusing and I think if I had the opportunity to write freely about all things it would help me find my true passion.
I’m still experimenting so stay tuned for the link and eventual move from this blog to the next.
