I forgot to update last week – sorry. But the news is all good.
Last time I checked in, I was sitting at 15st 5lbs. I’m now 14st 12lbs which gives me a total loss of 13lbs from my top weight of 15st 11lbs and means that I’ve achieved my first goal – to lose 5% of my body weight. My next goal is 10% which I’ll see when I reach 14st 2.8lbs in the New Year (can you believe it’s nearly time to start making Resolutions?)
I’m actually more pleased with the way I’ve lost this weight than the weight-loss itself. I have been sticking to the WeightWatchers Plan without depriving or starving myself. Last week I even had a packet of crisps and a bar of chocolate. A little voice in my head is saying:
This is how it’s supposed to be.
And I think it may be right.
Christmas is, of course, coming and the goose is getting fat. It’s my birthday on Christmas Eve and my mother has promised me a pepperoni pizza and ice cream for afters. In fact, I’ve seen my pizza in her freezer! I’m going to take the two days off dieting and just suck up the weight-gain that will inevitably result. And, most importantly, I’m not going to starve myself on the surrounding days to ‘make up’ for it. I don’t do a whole lot of socialising so taking 2 days out of a diet that’s going to take more than a year is really neither here nor there.
