Weight Loss #3 Part 8

I have GAINED 7lbs!!!

Yes, it's true!

After and during my tonsillectomy and a visit from my mother, my whole dieting took a pause. My working out took a pause too.

At one point my mind couldn't even focus on my WW app or even getting us to the gym and back.

I have continued walking. I've randomly attended Yin Yoga, which is the lighter version of the exercise. I keep my cross with me.

I am preparing for a speech, come lecture, on nutrition for the mother child group at C- Alliance Church.

I am making my herbal medicine to sell (remedies) at a Christmas market, soon.

I am planning a Christmas party.

I am homeschooling.

I am hosting a visitor (3 weeks).

I am doing what I need to do to keep this home afloat.

I am attending a Bible Study.

I'm feeling good!

I've hiked Grouse Mt.

I've hiked the Chief, in Squamish. Peak 1 and 2!

I have not taken this gain as a discouraging thing at all. I'm still on my way, to feeling healthy and fit!
