I have tried many ways to lose weight. I have done Weight Watchers, numerous times, only to lose the same 2 lbs over and over again. This normally continues for about 6 weeks, then I get frustrated, and stay away for a few months. When I met my husband I weighed around 110 lbs, mind you I probably was too thin. I ran 6-8 km a day and lifted weights . I felt amazing, but my diet was very very low calorie. I ate as minimal amount of food as I could.
I have seen doctors to see if it was my thyroid or something medical. I have recently reconfirmed that I have sleep apnea. It is mild and I have a CPAP machine for a month, to see if that helps. I am currently sleep deprived, having about 34 sleep disturbances an hour. When this happens,my blood pressure rises and so does my glucose, as it puts my body in a state of "fight or flight".
I can easily gain 3 lbs in a week but not being "really really careful" about what goes in my mouth! I went to Montreal,for a long weekend with my Mom, to visit my oldest daughter and gained 6 lbs!!! I asked my Mom if she gained anything....nope stayed the exact same!
I have tried buying clothes that I love, in smaller sizes, to see if that encourages me to try harder. I have so much Lululemon clothing, that I am embarrassed to show people!
SOOOOOOO I really thought I must have the most whacked out metabolism that ever existed! I tried searching last week to see if I could find some place that did that kind of testing but to no avail!
BUT I did have an appointment today, at a place that specializes in "Alternative Nutritional" consultations.
What an eye opener! Everything made sense and I can totally understand why I have been going in circles for years! I really hope that this helps me achieve my goals. I know it is going to be hard work, but I need to feed my body with clean food.
I am so excited for the upcoming week. I signed up for a 7 day Yoga challenge, which I started today. I love Yoga and I don't know why I don't do it more often at home. It was a little difficult as the three youngest kiddies thought it would be fun to watch Mommy do her poses. Namaste ♥
Tomorrow morning is C25k time,and my legs feel great from Saturday's run!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.
