Hi everyone - hope you all had a good week last week. And good luck to those of you doing the Monday weigh-in.
Last week I was away (just got back) and had a great time. I kind of gave myself the week off but still tried to be sensible (but was less so than I hoped), I did manage a fair bit of walking and a nice swim yesterday though. Tomorrow I will weigh myself so I can see the damage and then work hard to get the lbs off for my official weigh-in on Friday.
Before my hols I had lost 47lb since I first weighed myself in the middle of February and I am hopeful to hit the 50lb soon. And my haven't those lost lbs made a difference - we spent a fair bit of time in London with lots of walking, steps and people. In the past I would have hated it and had to constantly stop to rest and the more tired I'd get the more I would hate all the people and it would ruin the time for me (and my hubby) - but not this time, I could happily keep up and the crowds didn't faze me. It was so nice to just be normal again - ok I still have a long way to go but who knew that losing 25% (well I have/had 1/2lb to go to hit the 25% target) of my excess flab would have made such a difference.
Oh yes and finally someone actually noticed I've lost weight!
So the conclusion - my week off has probably blown some of my good work, but having this little break is not the end of the "diet". It has been good to have a break and enjoy a bit more freedom but seeing how much my weigh loss has improved the enjoyment of my holiday has just made me more determined to keep going.
I am now off for a quick walk and tomorrow I will be back on track.
