Another pound off this week!
I’m pleased, considering I’m still unable to exercise at all and made (and consequently ate) a huge batch of breakfast muffins over the weekend.
I’m finding myself swinging between two extremes lately.
One moment I’m determined that I’m going to get to my goal. Nothing is going to stop me so bring it on because I can do it. The next moment I wonder if it’s all worth it because it seems like it’s going to take forever and I’m getting nowhere fast. Is this common?
I’ve never been a dieter. I’ve never been one of those girls growing up trying out faddy diet after faddy diet. So this whole dieting concept is new to me really, which shows as if I had made a stand a few years back after having Harry, my fourth child, and then the following three children, I would have got to the weight I was by the time I had Oliver three months ago.
Having said that, I’m pleased with the Weight Watchers plan that I’m following as it really isn’t feeling like I’m dieting at all. The word “diet” seems to conjure up images of deprivation. This isn’t like that at all. I could have anything I wanted if I really wanted it. I’m just able to make more informed decisions because I know how it will affect me simply by working out the Point value of each food. Then I can decided whether 7 points out of my allocated 22 on one chocolate bar is really worth it, when those Points could cover an entire meal and still leave some spare.
My sporting injury (Ha!, who’d have thought I’d say that. It’s a Wii Fit injury, Tania. Come on!) is still with me albeit only slightly now. I’m hobbling and limping less now and can feel a definite improvement. This is almost two weeks later you’ll note. I’ve been out of action nearly as long as I was in it. Not very good.
I’m hoping I can ease back into the exercise by next week. And of course I’ll be wearing my trainers this time!
So, my progress so far is as follows:
Starting weight: 13st 5lbs
Weight to date: 11st 4lbs
Goal: 8st 7lbs (yes, I knocked another stone off my original goal to get back to the weight I once was. *Sigh*, those were the days…)
Weight loss to date: 29lbs
I’d be interested to know if anyone else is currently trying to lose weight too. Are you following any plans and how are you getting on?
