So, after a three week hiatus, I am back! My grandma passed away on July 15, and that put a screeching halt on my weight loss efforts. I got back into semi-dieting last week, and was absolutely terrified to step on the scale this morning. But, I managed to lose 4 more pounds, taking my total weight loss to 25 pounds since June 1 (reaching my second mini-goal! Woohoo!
). Four pounds is not a lot, but considering what I've been through, and the bad things I've been putting in my mouth, AND my lack of exercise, I was pretty darn happy! With this boost of confidence, I am getting back, full force, into my "diet."
Honestly, I think I was afraid to start dieting again, because it made me feel guilty--like, my grandma has passed away, but I'm still trying to continue on with my life even though it's the last thing I feel like doing right now. I'm just a very guilt-ridden person by nature, so that's to be expected. I just hope it's not too soon to get back into this full-swing. I feel so much better when I'm doing it, though, so I'm going to try. Here's to the next 25 pounds gone!
