Well here I am again. When I started this journey over seven weeks ago, I decided to do it my way. I needed to be healthier, get fitter, but knew there would be times where I may not be quite as strict or regimented as some in order to meet my goals. I wasn't going to beat myself up about enjoying a night out, or a meal with family/ friends because life is for living.
Tomorrow is my 7 week assessment at the gym. It should be at 9 weeks but I head off on my holidays in two days. I have continued to increase resistance where I was able, mainly arms, and am persevering with the rest. When I joined I was told it would be possible to lose half a stone before my holidays, an achievable target.
Anyway, to get to my point. A few weeks ago someone 'suggested' that I should be doing things differently and it put me off coming on here for a bit. Everyone else has been so supportive, and am sure this person meant well, but my journey is just that - MY journey.
I weighed myself this morning and I have lost a stone since I started, averaging 2lbs per week (including the week when I didn't lose weight at all😄) I have also visibly lost inches, and had to put another notch in my belt on my jeans - and they are still loose.
My way works for me, and I will continue to soldier on - after my holidays.
Today is my birthday, so I have two reasons to celebrate - the other being the scales this morning.
So, to anyone else on the same journey - only you can choose your road, you have to walk (or run) it. If you have a good day, enjoy! If you have a bad day, tomorrow is a fresh start. The only person who can judge you is you.
