In week 1 I managed to lose 3lbs and in week 2, 1lb, so a total 3lb loss, and 3 1/2 inches from my waist. Ideally I need to lose just over 3 stone. I was so chuffed.
Then, we went away for 3 days, it was my birthday, we had relations staying over the weekend which meant 2 meals out, homemade cakes and biscuits at home, leftovers, wine ......, so 10 days after my last weigh in, I got back on the scales.
Shock, horror, gone up by 9 lbs! That's almost 1lb a day! Now, a little of that may be due to the amount eaten the day before, but not much.
I've now got the homemade cakes and biscuits left - I can't throw them away! I'm struggling to get focussed again, even though there are lots of important events coming up over the summer and a wedding in 13 months time.
I've lost weight before and then put it all back on and of course, more.
I am struggling to exercise as I had a foot operation 4 weeks ago, and even walking is still painful - there is likely to be another foot operation in November on the other foot.
I hope that by putting the facts on here, I will get my motivation back (cereal this morning was a very large bowl) and it will 'bring it home to me' what I am doing.
I will sit down (only with a coffee) and re-read weeks 1 and 2, and start again at week 3.
10 am, Tuesday 4th June - here we go.
I really enjoy reading the blogs on this site, so thank you all. When they are good stories they are inspiring, when they are not so good, it is nice to hear of others having the same issues and so not feeling so alone. I'm starting to feel a little motivated already typing this.
