So I figure I should update my sparkteams and supporters on my journey. So far I'm sticking to going to all my doctor's appointments. My lupus doctors lowered the steroids so that will definitely help me from eating unnecessary foods and adding on pounds. Hopefully, I can get back to a small dose again. The prednisone is such a disadvantage when trying to lose weight because it adds on unnecessary weight and it feels at times my working out is going to waste. However, I try to remember that things don't happen overnight and I must stay dedicated to trying to eat healthy and to exercise regularly. However, it seem there is so many temptations when you trying to lose weight. It's like a mind thing you have to want to change and be 100% into changing. I think my problem is that I tend to not go as hard as I can when I'm let down by other people who I wish could be going in the same direction as me. Many people say I'm going to lose weight with you this year but then its like I'm the only one focused. I try not to let it stop me from being focused but sometimes I wish I could have the motivation to go to a gym even though I don't really have to because I have all the tools and equipment at home. However, the gym will have extra machines like a elliptical and treadmill that will help in my weight loss. Also, the gym I planned to join its cheap and alot of friends go there but I wish I could get my family to join with me. Hopefully, it happens soon I'm praying it does.
