Well the struggle continues. My head wants to be slim and I think there's a part of me that is really enjoying my current figure so I'm getting a little bit lacks with it although I acknowledge I could definitely be happier a lot thinner - I certainly do have a way to go. It's such an ongoing daily battle between wanting to be slim and some days I will manage to keep within my calorie count until the evening time and then I'll go mad and eat all kinds, it's ridiculous and frustrating. On the rare occasion I will manage the full day but of course, it's is the rare occasion I am no longer losing weight and either staying the same or slowly gaining it.
It's easy to get really down about the fact I have been at virtual standstill for weeks with my weight loss but that's not going to help so in my mind I just try to be conscious of what's going on. The last thing I want to do is stop weighing myself completely because ignorance is definitely not bliss and before I know it I will be close to where I started again and I refuse to let that happen.
Some days I try to make healthier choices without actively counting calories, those days help me mentally as it takes the calorie counting focus away and brings it more to just eating a little more sensibly compared to the days where I can binge on food.
I will tell you that today I weighed myself. If you remember, I was spot on 14 stone at my lowest weight and I think the potential of being so close to the 13 stone mark mentally threw me off - totally self sabotage. I am currently 14 stone 10lbs which I definitely didn't want to admit but hey, these blog posts are all about he truth. I do believe with the right mindset I can be down a good few pounds within the next week so I will see how I go, no promises but right now I'm living week to week.
- Every day we have a choice, it's a fresh start and the most important part from any healthy eating plan is to just try and make as many days, good ones.
- Losing a pound a week is still over three and a half stone in a year.
- If you're feeling particularly down about your weight, remember that if you stick to a balanced diet then by this time next week you could have dropped quite a few pounds, just the kick start you need to get going! Even just by cutting down on treats you could make a difference, how good would that feel?!
