During last week’s weigh in I was brave and decided I would go for a 3lb loss this week in order to hit target. I say brave, because I’ve never managed that much before; I think only twice. One being on my first week when I lost 3.5lb, and once after a holiday. But I was going for it this week so I could be at target for my 30th birthday next week. I planned to have more EESP meals, and maybe one or two EESP days. I managed both of these goals and had an SP breakfast and lunch almost every day, and a full day on Monday, the day before weigh in.
The rest of the week went well, I was under syns – or flexi synned – every day. Even when I made this bakewell tart for the #GBBOBloggers2016 challenge. I synned the whole thing (insert shocked face at the amount) and had the tiniest piece; I was that focused on my goal loss! The nearer it got to weigh in though, I didn’t feel like I would reach it, and was already feeling disappointed.
Before I get to weigh in, here are some meals from my week:
As I said earlier, I was already feeling disappointed prior to weigh in as I didn’t feel like I had lost enough to reach target. I stepped on the scales for them to show a 0.5lb loss, so I was a bit gutted to be honest.
After thinking about it, I decided that I wouldn’t dwell on it. I am still almost 4st lighter for my birthday, something that wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t set foot into my group last year. I do still have another weigh in before my birthday, but I also have a couple of things on this week that could mean a maintain or gain. Or, I could be really lucky and nail it! Nonetheless, I still have Christmas (sorry!) to aim for being at target, and I can reach it in plenty of time, with my head in the game.
Also, as a final note, and as mentioned in the title, I had a NSV (non scale victory)! I got into a size eight bottoms – SIZE EIGHT! Last time I was a size eight, I was 16! And a completely different shape. I don’t know how it happened, but they fit. Amazed.
