If anyone has been paying attention to my blogs, you will know about my weight issues. If you need a refresher, you can go here and here. It was a struggle but, since finding out what caused the weight gain, I am down about 41 lbs.
Although I had some ankle issues from saving the cats and falling in mud, I have gotten back to (somewhat) normal in my working out. The ice, snow, and rain don’t really help but I do what I can. I do most of my working out in the gym and at home. I need to step my game up in the Steps department (according to my Fitbit) but I really am coming along. My goal is 180 lbs but I see the inches coming off and my body fat lowering so I am good with that.
People are surprised with how fast the weight came off but, even when I was frustrated from gaining weight while I was doing everything I was supposed to be doing, I was still working out and eating right. I knew something was wrong. I have now been off the Metformin after three months of being on it because my doc noted that my A1C went back to normal and that I didn’t need it anymore. I knew that was the case but I am annoyed because I did get turned down for extra life insurance because I had been diagnosed with diabetes last year. It’s cool though. Anyhow, let me find some pics to share with you guys.
These are oldest to newest. I have some more that I will be taking but I want to take them when I hit my goal weight. I just have to hit 180 lbs again for my own sanity. As of now, I’m am just happy to be back in the 190s. Trying my best to stay on this side of 200 because I don’t want to go there again.
But yeah, this is my weight loss. And if anyone in my family wants to call me “fat” again, I’m cool with it because I’m “fat” and in shape so it doesn’t even matter.
