Sneaky Weightloss Inhibitor
Saturday, February 02, 2019
A year ago I ordered a pair of jeans and put them on. They didn't fit. I broke down in tears. I don't know why but I kept them. I got another pair of jeans on super clearance. Tried them on, they didn't fit, but I kept them.
Just yesterday I tried on the first jeans and not only did they fit but there was room to spare. I wore them for the rest of the day. The other pair also fits. I'm happy at this mid point in my weightloss. I don't want to be some of those after photos you see. I like a happy medium. If I could stay here or maybe go down one more pant size I would be exactly where I needed to be for the rest of my life.
The one thing that may have also been a game changer in this process, besides all others mentioned in my weightloss formula blog post, is sleep. For 14 years of marriage my husband snored loudly. I am a light sleeper as it is. so there were 14 years of sleep deprivation. Past new babies, long after they slept through the night.
He could not help it, in fact some evidence suggests it's structural and he had sleep apnea since he was a baby. It was a process getting him set up with his machine. Doing it in a way that it was affordable and worked well for both of us.
Some days I still need 3mg of melatonin, a book, or the low, rumbling voice of Lt. Joe Kenda to put me to sleep, but I do get sleep. My husband also wakes up refreshed, and without headaches. He's a hard worker and an early riser. He can check his stats to see if his diet caused any apneas or periodic breathing and if he has been getting enough hours of sleep.
Sometimes the sneakiest things can inhibit your progress.
