As promised here is my first Wednesday update. My plan is to do these every Wednesday, after my weigh in on Tuesday night, from now on.
So last night was not the celebration I had hoped for . I only had 0.5lb to lose to reach my stone and a half (21lb for those of you who don’t work in stones :-)) and I was sure I’d done enough to get there. As it turned out I had a maintain last night, my first week without a loss since I started, and it felt a bit weird to tell the truth.
I am choosing to take the positive out this and am focusing on the fact that I didn’t gain anything, which is good. But I am also in a reflective mood as to why I didn’t lose. As far as I can see, I didn’t do anything to sabotage my weight loss. I kept my diary and was honest with myself. It’s a bit of a mystery. I mentioned this to my consultant and she has given me a more detailed diary to keep for 7 days, which looks at not only what you eat, but how, when and why. Hopefully any negative behaviours should be glaringly obvious and I can work to change them.
But then, do you know what? It could just be one of those weeks. I’ve had them before, I’m sure I’ll have them again. You make good choices, but your body just doesn’t get the memo. You accept and you move on.
Or it could also be the sausages and cream tea catching up with me, but less said about that the better 😉
So as it stands, I remain on 1 stone 6.5lb and I am still aiming to get my 1.5 stone award next week.
I don’t know if she reads this, but I’d also just like to say an amazing well done to my sister in law, who only 2 months after having her baby is back at Weight Watchers. Last night she reached her 5% (ie she’s lost 5% of her body weight). I couldn’t have done that so soon after having Oscar so I for one think she’s doing brilliantly. Well done girl!
