after reading ebony's post about a dietbet game she joined, i immediately hopped on the challenge!
like her, i am super competitive and determined to win -- even if it just means getting my money back!
and because i am SO confident that i will lose my 4% by march 16, i am going to check in here with my (however embarrassing) weigh-ins.
i know, i know.
my feet are gross.
try to ignore them.
this was my initial weigh-in last week.
this is also the biggest i have ever been, and it freaked me out that i am SO close to being 200 lbs. i now weigh more than my father, and that's a REAL confession.
i knew that my clothes weren't fitting correctly and that i had definitely gained (especially after my weight watchers binges and completely abandoning weigh down when i was in minnesota), but this was a SERIOUS reality check.
this week's weigh-in:
i almost didn't weigh because i've been incredibly sick with a chronic sinus infection and strep throat, and i am retaining water like crazy. but being forced to go to the doctor for that helped me.
i was diagnosed with leaky gut and candida overgrowth on wednesday, so my diet is about to change pretty drastically. i have had pretty much all of the symptoms for years now, so i am surprised i had to go to a holistic doctor in order to find this out. in any case, this weigh-in serves as the starting point of my anti-candida diet, which i started today.
as far as dietbet is concerned, my mini goal is to get to 169.5 by the end of the game, and i will keep enrolling in new games until i reach my final goal. if i lose at this same rate, i will be at goal by the october 12. i am honestly okay with that.
i know that there's a lot more to life than being obsessed with losing weight. i have a lot of travel coming up, and i know that i won't always be absolutely perfect. but i know i can lose that 4% each month if i stay focused on my principles of weigh down/intuitive eating and consistent in my prayer.
in pursuit of:
adopting a healthy way of eating that will heal my body
what are your confessions? triumphs? challenges?
