After being sick for almost a week and a half, I can finally say that I feel like myself again.

Begin Again

Being sick is absolutely horrible but it gave me a chance to slow down and rest for a brief period. I slowly got back into the swing of things this week. It’s been a good week.


I’ve been trying to get back to normal this week. Food has been good. Nothing out of the ordinary with my food choices.

There’s been one big problem though.

I’ve been hungry a lot more this week. It’s very unusual. I’m going to say that it has everything to do with being sick and finally getting over it. I’m not sure what it’s about but it’s not a good thing to have when you’re trying to lose weight


I’ve been slowly adding workouts back in to my routine. I didn’t want to go back in at full speed and then hurt myself or even get sick again.

Workouts have been the same all week. Nothing new on that front.

Weigh In Day:

Last week, I was expecting a gain. It didn’t come. I ended up losing 3.2 lbs.

This was the complete opposite. I stepped on the scale and gained 3.2 lbs this week. I’m back to where I was two weeks ago.

I was a little upset when I stepped off the scale. Then I took a moment. I thought about one thing. I’ve been sick for almost a week and a half.

There was nothing I could do about my body wanting to get back to a normal state. It’s nature.

So, how do I feel about being back at over 300 lbs again?

It sucks but all I can do is keep working the plan. Sickness wasn’t a part of the plan. I got derailed a bit. Now, I’m back on track. Next week will be better. If not, the plan slowly gets tweaked. I control what I can control.
