Yikes…I feel like this should be my weekly confession! It has taken a lot of courage for me to post these pictures….I felt sick at the thought of baring myself so plainly to everyone but I am determined to see it through this time.
I have just weighed in for the week and I am sat in a room of people who are all unhappy with how they look at feel but there’s a wonderful feeling of unity, of hope, and of anxiety. It’s a wonderful mix!
For those who have never been before, you can sense their unhappiness. For those of us who are old timers, a sense that Christmas is over and now is the time to push forward.
I’ll admit now that the weigh in didn’t really go as I was expecting. All week, I’d been feeling healthier and slimmer. My work trousers were surprisingly loose on Monday morning. I was feeling positive. As I was getting ready to leave, I mentioned to hubby that I’d been feeling a bit round today. I don’t want to cause embarrassment to anyone but I am having my monthly lady time so I thought it might just have been a little touch of the lady bloat!
Imagine my shock then when the scales showed a gain of 1 1/2 lbs?! Say what?! I literally had to pick my jaw off the floor.
I had not stuck to plan 100% but I had been much healthier than over Christmas and I’d only ever been over by a few syns (slimming world for the naughty bits!).
So now we think about how I move on. Well, after I’ve had my weekly chocolate treat after weigh in (like I said no idea when I’m going wrong!).
I’m going to stick to writing my food diary this week. It definitely helps me out a lot. My memory is so shocking post Sprog that I have no idea what I’ve eaten for breakfast by lunch time! I’m going to say no at work. No to the cake. No to the biscuits. No to the moaning about work which leads me to wanting the chocolate! I think I’m even going to stop my Graze box because as much as I love it…it always comes with the cake and chocolate options because they’re the ones that I like the most.
And…maybe I’ll do some exercise. I really want to find time for this but from now until Friday, I know that I have no spare time. Saturday is a family day and Sundays are always packed. So, I think I’ll have to ask hubby very nicely and see what we can do. I’m pretty desperate to take my new bike out for a spin so maybe that can happen at the weekend.
So wish me luck, fingers crossed that this week’s gain really was some lady bloat and off I go!
