I had such a frantic week last week so didn't have a weigh in. On getting on the scales this morning I have lost 1lb in 2 weeks... not great is it? I've had such a hard time in the last couple of weeks including getting a cold, root canal and excruciating tooth ache plus coping with bad news about loved ones... I'm not using any of these things as an excuse but I guess i've realised that although i havent over eaten, unless I really concentrate on my diet I don't ever end up loosing anything. I guess I'm wishing for the impossible and it's never going to be easy loosing weight, I just feel like it would be a nice boost with everything else going on at the moment.
When I'm concentrating I tend to eat no more than 1100 calories or even less which might result in a 1lb-2lb weight loss - I feel like this is significantly lower than alot of people loosing weight. Although I exercise 3-4 times a week I work in a office so appreciate a more sedentary lifestyle means that I have to have less calories going in.
On the positive this is my 1st half stone gone on this plan, and I'm so glad it's gone. I'm slowly crawling back to the weight I was before I started amitriptyline and actually feeling pretty good about it. I really do think carbohydrates are the things that don't work for me - I find that even though I'm eating the same calories in my meals - if they contain pasta or bread or rice of any kind I just won't loose weight. Which is so confusing as It really is the same number of calories?!? I can't start to understand it but if I know I need to cut out carbs then I need to cut out carbs... it's the only thing that works.
Have to admit I'm struggling with motivation at the moment but it's exactly 2 weeks till I go to sunny Italy and I would be over the moon if I got to 13st by then. Fingers crossed!
