My weight loss this week is 2.2 lbs, or 1kg so I am down to 74.2 kgs.
I feel good about this, as I weighed myself the day before (in the middle of the day, after a big dinner out at my friend's place) and ended up depressed and sad as the scales showed no loss. Obviously, it is very different weighing yourself first thing in the morning.
I had a great week, with lots of exercise, and I was feeling great eating less and getting more energy and better mood all-around.
After a good week, I had a turbulent weekend. After the local parkrun, my husband seemed un-supportive, and then later on, he completely dis-regarded something important I was saying about my exercise and weight-loss experience. We rowed. On Saturday evening we went to a friend's place for dinner. This friend is a great cook, and we hadn't seen them for a while, the food was delicious so I found it hard to control calories, due to peer pressure and from the desire to relax with my friends. On Sunday, my husband finally realised (after we both weighed ourselves and him reading the stats) that it was me who was over-weight (and not him as he thought) and he finally put all his support in me. He is wonderfully supportive and kind person, but sometimes he is a bit slow to realise a few things. So the weekend was an emotional roller-coaster, but I am hoping he finally understands where I am at, and I will not be alone in this.
I also found out that last week I just drunk too much wine in the evening. We have stressful time trying to raise our little son, and coping with work pressures, and few glasses of wine in the evening come as a welcome relief. However, it just doesn't work with my determination to lose weight. So I will cut that down to 2 glasses this week.
So, ups and downs for me. The weight is down, but mood is up and down. This journey is challenging.
Thank you for fab 5 and also to Ruthcanalrunner for her really insipiring post on weight maintenance.
Good luck to everybody xx
