I shy away from facing reality rather a lot. So this forum and the NHS guidelines are good at keeping me on a narrower road than I naturally tread.
Trouble is, when you weigh yourself and see that despite what feels like monumental effort the loss is only 1lb, you feel like jacking it in and eating a tray of flap jack.
Well I do. I do today. I won't. But I want to.
I am on day 71 of my own journey and today downloaded week 1 of the NHS 12 week plan. I filled in my chart, even measuring my waist and that is what has knocked me down. I wanted to be slimmer than I am.
I wanted to feel that I have nearly done it rather than am maybe only half way in on the 'loss bit' whilst just beginning the 'life bit'...
Can't afford, at 43, to be a Yo-Yo any more.
Some days are tougher than others aren't they!
