Another 3.5lbs gone! For good!!!
I've been very very busy at work recently (hence the lack of comment/posts) and had a bit of a wobbly week as the increased pressure at work came quite suddenly and I hadn't had a chance to plan ahead. This meant I was finishing work tired and hungry and diving in to Morrison's to grab a pizza for dinner- which I knew was a poor choice, but it was quick, and easy. Which when I think about it, is exactly how I ended up in this position in the first place!!!
Anyway, I managed to get back on track for the second week by planning my meals and stocking the freezer with lots of veg, fish and chicken. The added exercise from the extra work is helping a lot too. My 'normal' job is desk bound in my local hospital. My extra work is in the medical records department, walking around a *huge* warehouse and climbing steps to pull people's notes ready for their hospital appointment - so far I manage about 4 miles per afternoon. So I'm walking, stretching and lifting (some notes are massive!) which is giving me a whole body work out, and I get paid for it. Win!!!
I've started to eye up items of clothing too. I'm not really 'into' clothes shopping, but I wonder if that is more to do with not being able to buy nice stuff that fits. In my head, I'm starting to imagine (fantasizing?!) myself being slimmer and being able to buy nice things that fit me.
Highlight of the week - my husband told me I was looking good this week. Apparently my skin looks better, the bags under my eyes are disappearing and I seem to have more energy. And I'm happier, according to him. I can only assume that is down to a much improved diet.
So the numbers are :
Starting weight = 19st 7
New weight = 19st 0
Weight lost this time = 3.5
Total lost = 7lbs.
