I’ve decided that from this weigh in onward, I am dropping the number of the weigh in. As the weeks go on and that number goes up, it is getting a little disheartening as it is such a high number now and I am not yet at target. I don’t mind taking the scenic route, as I always have done. But, I think it might make me feel a bit better in general.
At last week’s weigh in I seemed to be continuing my trend of only losing half a pound, and that’s okay. The closer to target, the harder it is to lose – I know that. I went away from group feeling confident about the week ahead and I was doing okay. Until I had a bit of a mini breakdown over something stupid, and I just wanted to eat rubbish. Which lasted a couple of days.
As usual nowadays, I ended up regretting it as I knew it would most likely have a negative effect on me. As I’ve said previously, I don’t know why I still do it! Mostly because, I know I can still eat a bit of rubbish food and manage to stay on plan, but instead I just think ‘F**k it” and completely blow it.
Anyway, I have been a little better at posting on Instagram this week, so here are a few meals:
I was already feeling nervous before I went to weigh in as I felt really bloated, and I knew the rubbish I had eaten would have probably caused a gain. Stepping on the scales, they told me I had a 2.5lb gain; I was expecting maybe one or two pounds but I was a bit gutted with that amount, even though I knew exactly where it had come from.
I’m at that point now where I’m battling between wanting to call target soon, but also wanting to get my 4st award. I am pretty comfortable with my clothes size, but I am still quite wobbly. I know that I need to tone those bits up though, and I’ll get there at some point.
I’m going to change my target at group next week, but I’ve worked out that I can bring it up by 3lb from what it is set at now, and still be able to get my 4st within my target range. I really want that target by my 30th birthday – five weeks away! Now I only have 6lb to go, it seems doable – fingers crossed!
