With the exception of spending £20 in Subway at the weekend (dear god save me from myself) I have managed to keep away from takeaways and fast food for a few days now and even done some more cooking, and despite some very big and very tasty meals, I've not only managed to curb my weight gain but also lose a few pounds!
Down to 23 stone 1 pound!
I've not managed to walk at all this week for a few reasons, mostly me making stupid excuses, and I pretty much gorged all weekend (though, I denied myself popcorn at the cinema and had a diet pepsi so slight win there), but apart from that I have been fairly sensible. I'm eating cereal for breakfast, a small lunch (at least a lot smaller than it used to be) and then dinner depends on whether I can be bothered to cook, but the worst I've had this week is a oven pizza and chips that I had tonight.
I was planning to wear a shirt I like when I go out for my birthday, but I tried it on and found there's simply no hope for it I thought back to when I last wore it and it dawned on me just how fast I've put on this weight! It was a baggy shirt and now it just about buttons and looks ridiculous. So since that's not my goal anymore, I'm just aiming to lose 5 pounds by then, which is fairly do-able.
I still have an urge to binge but I stopped myself buying two packs of donuts tonight. I can try to suppress the desire to just pig out but its always there so I don't know if I'll ever get over it. Even though I ate well tonight I still feel hungry and I know it won't go away until I'm really stuffed, which isn't a great thought but hey.
So, 5 pounds in 10 days! Lets do this!
