This has been a difficult week for me in every way. I'm not going int why, I've felt less motivated. Here I am again I get to a certain point and bang I blow it. BUT This time I've not blown it but I'm getting nearer to blowing it... I can feel that feeling where I'm eating that extra extra bit that will hinder my weight loss. I know why though this time... Why I'm writing this because no ones perfect and especially those who just love food and drink and in general love Life... That's us.... But then there's the other sude of the coin where I feel totally miserable when I can't fit in that nice dress as I look too fat to wear that style and I end up going back to my big black tent dress and fat pants which incidently cause me to feel like I can't breath... and feel like I'm aging fast...do I want that NO NO NO
Is that extra bit worth it.... Of course it isn't, that's why I'm not going to do it again... I do think I will just maintain another week though.
I'm small and I really can't afford to eat extra calories as I don't do much exercise. So even an extra few calories doesn't help. It hinders any weight loss, in my case.
I suppose Ive just got to admit it this time and start to use my common sense. This weight loss forum is the ideal place when you feel at your lowest in the sense of you can come here and share what's going on.
I wanted that extra bag of crisps, that chocolate, that wine, those carbs, that cake tonight but why.... I know why, I'm an emotional eater, many of us are ..... That's the time to be extra careful.... Count those calories and don't go beyond...... You owe it to yourself. Be really kind to yourself..... Not with extra food. But with kindness to yourself to be the best you can be. If I can do this, So can you..... If I lose this week half a pound I will be happy. I've been used to 1100 cals a day but this week I've had 1200 to 1300 a day. I can have up to 1400 but I know me and I can't lose on 1400 I just maintain.... When I stick to 1100 I lose..... Some may say this is not enough but I just can't lose weight on any more calories. I've now experimented so I'm stuck with 1100 calories until I hit my target.... I think it's going to be worth it. I have slips and trips but at least I know what works for my body. I think we are all the same on here it's finding what really works for each individual.. No two people are alike. Here's to the next few days, weeks, months of weight loss and our stories along the way.
