I am going to keep this brief this week because the truth is that I am just not in the right headspace to step on the scale. My last WLW post was a re-cap of my September Whole30, and I have been maintaining a completely gluten/dairy free diet since then. But I am still having chronic stomach pain. I am currently eating to relieve pain and not as much to lose weight. This doesn’t mean that its a free for all, just that weight loss is not my #1 priority at the current moment.
I feel like I am in almost a survival mode and it has been truly one of the most difficult times I have gone through. My depression/anxiety has been increasing so I have a counseling appointment coming up too. I am also doing the things I wrote about in the post below to help with my mental health.
I definitely don’t want to be a drag, but I want to be honest. Truthfully, I think I will take a small break from these WLW posts until after I have my appointment with the gastroenterologist (stomach doctor). It is at the end of the month.
This has been the first time in my life that I didn’t know what direction to go when it comes to eating and losing weight. I need help and I am praying so hard that this doctor will be able to help me.
To end on a more positive note, I have started lifting weights again and I love it. It makes me feel strong and that is wonderful for my confidence. I shared some of my new favorite plus sized workout gear on Instagram and I love it, so I thought I would share it here for you too.
I love you all, your encouragement and support keeps me going!
