February nearly over

So it's the 22nd Feb...... And I have have not lost a pound!!

January came and went, I kept telling myself it's cold,start slow,don't beat yourself up,you only live once, and all the other crap you tell yourself when you just can not admit something!!

( is this making sense? ) so I went shopping yesterday for some clothes,took my normal size in to the changing room........And to my utter disgust they were far to tight!!! Gutted or what......

So what to do ? Start again ? Be absolutely miserable ? OR pick myself up,dust myself off......and one day at at time.... Today is another day 1 😳🤔 I have 10lbs to lose (again) and I am 5 ft 3, and look ok at 9.7 or 9.4 perfect.....

Fingers crossed & onwards and upwards xxxxx

Have a good day my NHS buddies 😜💋👍

You're not alone, I've been yo--yo-ing. I have been indoors more, and definitely eating more, during this awful dreary weather. Let's hope that eventual Spring air and some holiday plans will get us back on track....

A bit of sunshine is all I need to renew my energy! Yesterday I did force myself out for an hours swift walk (in the wind ) but then got home , had rhubarb crumble and cream for pudding and watched tv all evening! 😕

I haven't been gaining, but I haven't been losing either. I just think I'm more hungry in winter and somehow lacking motivation. On the other hand at least we're all trying, if we just let ourselves go we'd be in a far worse position. So onwards and downwards!

Hi June, what a horrible shopping expedition that sounds like. I think it is just the Christmas bump. Once we get past it, we still can't get our heads back in the game again. How to start? When I get stuck like you have, I start by writing down everything that goes into my mouth, even water! And then I put the kcal in. Then I know what I am doing and I can start correcting it. After 2 or 3 days, I start planning, as I am doing all this work and I may as well get the benefit from it. Once I start planning, I am back in the game and I usually lose something that first week. I was 10lbs over my goal weight too. But after doing what I've just described, it is only 8lbs now. Just start doing it, you will soon be back to eating healthy and losing those few lbs you don't want.
