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!
Last weeks weight: 211 pounds
Current weight: 215
Goal for next week: 211
Ugh. How does this even happen? such a yoyo. I need to work hard to break out of this. I’ve not eaten well this week, really irregular and eating large portions in the evenings because of not eating anything during the day. (I am not starving myself, just want to make that clear. Hard to find time to eat when rushing around and working through mealtimes)
My aim for this week is to get back into good eating habits, and to do some voluntary exercise (not just walking to/from work). This may be difficult because I’ve been having trouble with my ankle ever since I sprained it, but I want to stop being so sedentary. I would love to get back into running, though this may be difficult around my other commitments. Food planning and trying to exercise when I have time will have to do for now. We’ll see how it goes…
