Morning everyone, seems like a while since I was last here, nearly 6 weeks, time flies by when you are having fun! Last time I was on I was just about to head home for my 5 weeks off, had just got under the 300 lb mini goal and had a wonderful vacation to look forward to.
I have to be honest, I was worried about the damage it would do to my weight loss/healthy eating plan. I was looking at a lot of socializing ahead of me and was struggling with how I could maintain my healthy eating at the same time as enjoying a few brews with friends and family. In the end I stopped stressing about it and just enjoyed the time I was spending with friends, I didn't want to be the guy at the table enviously looking at the jug of Pimms while I was sat drinking water.
However the past several months of healthier habits have stuck to an extent, I was consciously making smarter choices for meals without stressing about the exact calorie count. I've had a lovely 5 weeks off, a week on a boat in the med, trip to London, multiple BBQ's and nights out, the damage, well I was a shade over 302 lbs today, so 3 1/2 lbs on over the last 6 weeks. I'm pretty pleased with that, yes it's a gain, but I wanted for nothing and have some wonderful new memories of good times spent with friends and family.
Back to the grindstone now, hoping to have that gain knocked off in the next couple of weeks and then onwards and downwards on the scales.
Hope everyone else is doing good, looking forward to catching up with you all.
