I know that it’s been ages since I’ve posted an update on my weight loss. My life has been a whirlwind with so many changes that it’s been a hectic ride the past few months.
After a few very tough months, I made the decision to leave my job of six years. It was definitely a hard decision to make since I had been there for so long, my passion for food and weight loss was starting to take over my life – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, that I felt the need to pursue this as a career. So I decided to embark on a new journey that is taking me to a new unknown – scary, but exciting at the same time.
During this time, I would have to admit that I temporarily fell off the eating wagon for a while. Because I was suffering through a lot of stress, I wasn’t eating much – it was definitely the kind of stress that made you temporarily bulimic – whenever I ate something, I somehow would vomit it out, like my body was rejecting food. I did lose weight, but it was the kind I didn’t want to lose – an unhealthy way where I knew I would somehow gain it back once I started eating normally. My strict regimen of 5-6 times per week workouts dwindled to either one or two workouts a week, since I was either too tired (from sleepless nights), or was just too consumed with whatever demons I was fighting in my head to focus on anything else but exercise.
Once things started to settle down, I began eating again, but it took a while to get back to eating in macros. My diet started to slip and I think I may have gained back some of the weight – luckily enough, I didn’t completely fall off the wagon, since now I’m back on track with eating right and working out 3-5 times a week.
On a more positive note, a few great things have happened since the last time added an update – I am now down to 156 pounds, bringing my total weight lost to 76 pounds! Now the picture I added doesn’t show too much of a dramatic change, but I’m now down one shirt size (from a large to a medium) and one pant size (on average, between a size 6-8, depending on the brand and pant cut). I still have about 30 pounds to go before I reach my goal, but once I stay on this wagon, I’m going to try my best to stay on as best as I can.
Also, I’ve now started to sell my macro prepackaged meals and desserts online – I’ve been working with Eat Homemade to sell my goodies in the New York City area! Please check out my online store to see what I offer from week to week as this changes.
Besides selling my food online, I’m in the beginning stages of starting a macro meal prep service – where I would offer weekly meals and deliver a week’s worth of food in macros at a certain price. If you live in the NYC/NJ area and you’re interested in learning more and would like to participate, please contact me via e-mail and I’d be happy to send you more details.
As you can see, my life has really been a whirlwind, but it won’t stop me from getting to where I want to go. Setbacks will always happen in life, but the most important thing is to be experience the journey and not focus on the destination.
Now let’s get back on the road to discovery and success!
