After last week and yet another small loss, although I knew why it was a small loss, I have to admit I was feeling a bit deflated. I feel like I’m not really getting anywhere at the moment though I know this is sometimes my fault, and in part it’s because of my PCOS. I’m kind of at that stage where I feel like giving up, but I am most definitely not going to. I have come really far in a short space of time – compared to previously anyway when I have tried to lose weight – so I know that this eating plan (I hate the word diet!) works for me and it’s something I can maintain long term.
Nonetheless, instead of moping, I stayed on plan for most of the week other than when I went to Birmingham on Friday with Jacob. In all honesty, I did pig out a little bit but on Sunday I was straight back on it. Previously I would have thought, “Oh well, the damage is done now so I may as well carry on”, but these days I prefer to do some damage limitation. That is definitely huge progress.
I actually only have one meal photo from this week so here it is!:
Weigh in time. I was hoping for a maintain this week and apart from the weekend (which was similar to last weekend) I have been on it, so a loss the same as last week would have been nice too. I got on the scales and as usual they flickered, then landed on a 1.5lb gain. I have to admit I was a little bit shocked at this, so maybe I was worse than I thought.
I was disappointed, as I have now been battling the same 4lb for almost 4 months and I am now 4.5lb (again) from getting down into that next stone bracket, which is really frustrating me. One thing, at least it gives me an indication that I may be able to maintain once I get to target!
