It has been a good couple of weeks, I’ve been on plan and steadily losing weight. This week I even received my half stone award 🙂
I feel really good about being on track, but there is still a niggling worry that I’ll fail and go on a huge food binge…planning my food has really helped me stay in control so I’m going to keep up with that!
So far I’ve lost 8.5 pounds. I’m aiming to get a stone off by the end of February, even if my birthday is in the middle of the month.
I set out a non-food rewards list for each half stone I lose, both small and big things. My first reward was a new book – so I popped into Waterstones and picked out Veronica Roth’s new release – Carve the Mark.
I’m so pleased with myself, I’ve consistently lost for the past 4 weeks!
Back to weigh in this morning. Now the holidays are well and truly over, I’m back to my regular schedule. Unfortunately, this does also mean I’m at risk of slipping back into eating unhealthy foods. To get around this, I’m going to plan out my meals. I’ve bought a few Slimming World meals from Iceland to help when I need some quick dinners too.
Now, weigh in; 2 pounds off.
I’m pleased that I didn’t put back on all of the weight I lost while I was ill. I need to keep on plan and keep the losses coming. This week will be my first full week back at work, so meal prep will be doubly important.
Post Christmas weigh-in. these have never been particularly kind to me – I love the food at Christmas so tend to overindulge and eat everything.
This year, I don’t feel as though I stuffed myself stupid. there were times when I maybe didn’t need to dig into the cheese and biscuits…but I didn’t feel like I’d stuffed myself stupid. I definitely snacked less than usual.
I’ve also been ill all over the Christmas period. I think it’s flu, but it’s moved into my head so I’m so stuffy, wheezy and half deaf. Very uncomfortable!
Anyway, weigh-in was on new years eve, and I was surprised to find out I had lost 4 pounds. This brings me down to a pound under my start weight when I rejoined in November. I’m so pleased I managed to loose the weight I had put on since rejoining. Now I just need to keep going…
