Our Weight Loss Journey | Week 005

This week I’m feeling incredibly burnt out, but that’s just the way things go sometimes. No one has ever said “life is easy” and the same holds true for weight-loss and lifestyle change. I was a little naive in thinking that because we’d changed so much already, maybe leading a healthier lifestyle would be easier to implement. That couldn’t be further from the truth.


This week I had unbelievable cravings for ice cream, candy, cheese…and the fact that Trevor still eats those things is difficult. Up until this week I’d been okay, remembering how much pain products that contain dairy bring me, that I was quick to turn down offerings. This week I caved and am really paying the price. Not only am I dealing with a shaken system from consuming dairy, I have some sort of a stomach virus. I’m not really hungry, not eating too much, but gaining weight. I hope I can turn it around this week.

It’s been a big lesson for me; I can choose to feel good, or choose to feel bad. Choosing to eat things that actually feed my body and give it the nutrients it needs means I feel better and live pain-free; hopefully I can keep this experience in mind when I feel I miss eating dairy products.

I have had similar revelations as Allyson in regards to feeling good or bad based on what I eat. Earlier this week I had some chips and soda and felt sluggish and sick the rest of the day. My weight even went up from the junk I ate in the middle of the week. I also ended up also getting a stomach bug at the end of the week. Still somehow managed to drop another pound. I hope this can keep up. I haven’t weighed this much in a couple years and it’s great to have lost 10lbs since last July.
