OOTD : Pause (Wk 9 of Chubby Girls Get Skinny Project)

Hi everyone! It’s been 2 weeks since I last posted about my weight and this project. 😥 I’m sorry. I had a LOT of changes in my life lately that it hit me so fast, I didn’t prepare myself enough for it.

I had a series of depressing months lately and the results are pimples, dry skin and weight gain. 😥 The struggle is so real. I had to pause for a meantime and realign my priorities. Now I think I’m more ready to write and press on to this challenge.

Weight : 168.9

I have to be honest, there was a time that I binge eat and reached 175 lbs. You know how we women reach out for food to find comfort? Yep! I’m one of them. I just have to pick up the pieces and put myself back together.

There was a week when I tried to exercise through dancing. Unfortunately, it came with a price and left me with joint pains and a series of fibromyalgia attacks. 😥

I am no health expert, nor am I a good inspiration in losing weight. I know.. I’ve lost weight a couple of times before.. but this time, things are really hard.. The questions are :

Did I stop? NO

Will I give up? N-O!

You can just watch my weight go up and down. See me pause and continue.. but I will never stop finding ways to try and lose weight. I’m sure my girls aren’t giving up on me too. Follow them on their journey as well : Beth and Brie.

Sometimes, people think that pausing is equivalent to failure. It isn’t. In pausing, we find peace, more strength and courage to do the things we want and need to do. I’m not spontaneous. I don’t like change.. I’m a control freak and too OC that God is always teaching me that I don’t control my life nor my situation. I just have to go with the flow and trust Him day by day. It is tough to discontinue the routine I’ve been doing for the past 2 years of my life.. but sometimes, we have to let go so we would learn more in life.

Lesson Learned : Go out of your comfort zone, it is tough; but the results are totally worth it. Breathe. Pause. Enjoy. Work.
