A couple of weeks ago I got to weigh in at a friends house, I found out I weighed 22 stone 2, which was a bit of a slap in the face but ultimately not as much as I had been dreading (I was worried maybe 24 stone or perhaps more by now).
Last week I saw her again and she just told me I could take the scales. She is avoiding them until she gets back down to a size 16, she thinks they are demotivating if she sees them go up. I didn't think much of that until I weighed in again last night and was shocked to see I've gained 6 pounds already and I'm 22 8.
Now I feel a bit demotivated, kind of like any effort I put in during the past month was wasted. Does anyone else feel that way when they see the numbers going up?
I've been walking some more than usual but its making my feet ache, never tried to exercise while I've been this heavy and I can see why so many people just get to a certain size and find it impossible to exercise.
I've been better with my eating for lunches, but have ended up eating out with friends a lot the past few weeks and that just throws me off balance, hence me still gaining weight.
How do you deal with eating out? The temptations and everyone wanting dessert? Surely I'm not the only one who struggles with that, haha!
