My weight loss diary is a little late this week as I am a little bit ashamed, even though I knew it was going to happen. It was my birthday at the weekend and needless to say, I indulged. So did quite a few of my friends (also on SW) actually. But I was dreading weigh in on Monday and whilst it wasn’t quite as bad as I expected it to be, it was still pretty bad for me considering I maintain or lose mostly.
This week I put on 2lb. Now considering I had takeaway pizza with sides plus three different birthday cakes from people and chocolates for presents plus the alcohol I drank when we went out…2lb isn’t that bad in the grand scheme of things. However it pushes me further away from my 1 stone award and as I sit there typing this I can see my 1/2 stone award and I want that stone award next to it so badly.
I’ve struggled a bit this week to get out of the mindset of it being my birthday and now finally seem to be back on track. I’ve been doing my walking every weekday and want to get some time in on the exercise bike over the weekend. I’ve also arranged with a couple of my friends who also attend Slimming World to visit the gym together once a week or so when the children are at nursery or go for walks with others. Even all do an exercise DVD at the same time as each other to spur each other on. I know some of my friends can suffer lack of motivation sometimes and we need to do all we can to build each other up and help each other achieve our weight loss goals.
I love this quote – I think it sums it up well. I don’t want it to come back thus I am not losing it as such, I am getting rid of it, banishing it forever. I’m hoping for a 2lb loss next week so that I am back on track but of course would be totally chuffed if I managed more. Wish me luck!
