In May of this year my family and I went to California for a week, I really had a great time and didn’t want to leave. We went to LA and ate at a dude ranch, excellent food, and it had a mechanical bull. Of course my husband encouraged me to ride the bull and of course, I was the first one of 10 at the table [the only female might I add] to have the guts to go do it.
My husband video taped it and when I saw the video I was mortified. I didn’t know who was the bull and who was me. Right there and then I knew I had to lose weight. I know I’m 50 lbs overweight but as long as I don’t look in the mirror below my neck I don’t have to admit that I’m 50 lbs overweight.
Anyway, I rode the bull and was the only one to ride it to the end, stay up on it for 42 seconds! Whoot to me. When I came home I decided to do Paelo. I did a Paelo challenge once for 30 days and lost like 15 lbs, I really don’t know why I stopped doing it, maybe it’s the pressure of the family. Seeing the kids slobbering down French fries smothered in gravy, making pasta for them, mac n cheese, ummm… dare I say more?
Any way its now a few weeks after the above story was initially written and I’ve lost 9 lbs. I’ve stalled and I’m so discouraged. I don’t know what to do to jump start again. I’ve really not been eating sugar or carbs. Trust me, I have them very very sparingly, so I don’t understand. I’m getting upset. I’ve cut my calories in half, I’ve stopped the soda, I have a TON more energy, in the last two days I’ve mowed two property lawns, weedeated, emptied and manhandled the kids pool, cut down trees, cut back weeds as large as me and nothing, no weight loss!
I do feel cheated, especially when I see no movement on the scale. I feel like crying while I type this blog. However, I did get my period yesterday so this is prob indicative of my cycle.
