Five weeks down now.
I've been a bit rubbish at keeping up to date with my blog on here.
In essence, the past two (or three?) weeks have been a bit mixed. I've been continuing to go to the gym/swimming, but also had a few lunch/dinner engagements which can easily ruin a whole week's work within one sitting. I know that one week I didn't lose any weight (though, I suppose it's better than putting any on).
I've just weighed myself and at week five, I'm just under 12 stone. I'm feeling mixed about it. I had expected to be stuck still at 12 stone two, but am frustrated that I didn't lose more in the past few weeks, especially when it had been going pretty well at the start. Nevertheless, I've lost about seven pounds (half a stone) in five weeks. That's still more than I originally planned, so not so bad I guess!
Tomorrow I'm going on holiday/travelling with my family and on my own. In terms of the weight loss, this could swing it either way I think. Two and a bit weeks in Malaysia, and two weeks in Australia. In the past, I've always lost weight in Malaysia. It's difficult being a vegetarian there and the choice of food is more limited - after a while, I get bored of eating Asian cuisine all the time and my appetite wavers. In Australia, I'll be by myself and will have to try my best to eat well. We'll see how it goes!
