I was expecting a gain. I hadn’t been on plan aaand that always means a gain.
What I didn’t expect, was to be quite as upset by it as I was.
I felt like I was spiraling, and I wasn’t sure how to stop it. I didn’t want to get bigger and put on more weight, and I was panicking about how to get myself under control. A little understanding and a cuddle helped me pull back from the panic precipice. Afterwards I began to plan, and I started to feel better – more in control. I’ve not been perfect, but having planned out dinners has really helped.
I’ve not been to slimming world for the past couple of weeks. The first week I booked off because I was away, the second I wasn’t well so couldn’t make it in. Of course I ended up not sticking to plan and eating some off-plan things. some days were fine, but I’m not expecting a loss when I go to weigh in on Saturday. All I can do is get back on plan, and stick to it – something I’ve always found difficult, especially when I have a lot on!
Food planning is going to be crucial this week – it’s the run up to Christmas and everyone will be feeling festive, which will mean food & indulging. It’s a hard time of year to be dieting!
