I realise it's not Sunday and that's fine, this post is going up now as now I'm ready to write it. If you've read the past few posts you'll know I'm struggling, I have a lot on my mind and healthy eating hasn't been one of them. I've avoided the scales, I knew that if I looked at the number they said it may make me worse so I didn't. I also knew that if I didn't look soon that it would get seriously out of hand.
It seems mad to have such a struggle against yourself but I decided to start again back with eating well again on Tuesday (yesterday.) It may not have been noticeable to anyone else but to me I could see I had put on weight and my face was starting to be more rounded again. I weighed myself and I was 15 stone 4, my lowest weight was 14 stone so since January I had put on 18lbs but I know that that isn't the end of the world. I have lost weight at a decent rate in this past year, I will do it again.
Now that I've weighed myself and faced the numbers I know where I'm starting off at and where I'm heading towards. I went to Asda and stocked up on all of the low calorie meals that I love and I'm back trying my best at the gym every weekday morning.
Thankfully I can feel my attitude has changed back to where I was and I feel like weight loss is once again possible. Unfortunately I am going to the States in a few weeks but whatever I can do up until that point is a bonus. At this point I am in my second day of calorie counting and I'm already starting to feel better about myself. I shall be back on Sunday with my usual update!
- 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?!
