I really ought to give up on this diet, I’ve been terrible again this month. In my defense I started off really well, especially as it was AF week but towards the middle, I started eating crap again and regained a couple of the pounds I lost. But this week went a bit better so fingers crossed for Month 3.
Week 1 – XStone4lbs
Week 2 – XStone1lbs
Week 3 – XStone5lbs
Week 4 – XStone2lbs!
So I’m getting there… probably a couple of pounds behind but still 7lbs down since January 1st! Come on March!
I decided to change this to a monthly post as some weeks I wouldn’t lose then I’d lose more the next week!
I started at XStone9lbs on the 1st January
I started the diet on 5th January and was XStone7lbs so was already ahead and I think this led to me taking things casually.
By week 2 on the 12th January I had stayed the same and was still XStone7lbs
Week 3 was better and on the 19th January I was XStone5lbs!
But on week 4 the 26th January was XStone6lbs! Gah! I’m useless!
However, I’m still down on New Years so that’s a positive and I’ll make a better effort in February as am keen to stick to meal plans!
(just sneaked onto the scales and I’m Xstone3lbs…! but it doesn’t count as it’s not weigh day )
I stayed the same this week, which wasn’t surprising as I was mainlining hobnobs over the weekend but am doing infinitely better this week so am hopeful for a loss next week!
Exercise has fallen by the wayside a bit, although did manage 20 minutes on an exercise bike and walked halfway around the village doing errands at work yesterday.
I have been busy in the kitchen making lower calorie meals which I’ve been adding under a batch cooking tag so look out for those!
Must try harder!
It’s amazing really, last week I was so ready to get on the healthy eating and was passing party food back to my father to eat so it was out of the house but my sweetie drawer still remained.
Monday arrived and I started with good intentions, ate my homemade soup but by the end of the day I really fancied chocolate so hit up my sweetie drawer.
Now although I only started Monday the goal is to lose a pound a week and with intermittent exercise have managed to lose a pound since January 1st.
Onwards to next Monday which is official weigh day! Just need to get through the weekend without bingeing…
I’m overweight, no two ways about it. Not just a little bit, a good 50lbs or more overweight!
So this year I will be attempting to lose 52lbs in 52 weeks through calorie counting.
I won’t be starting my healthy eating until 5th January as I still have vast amounts of holiday food leftover but I will be hopefully on it by Monday!
Wish me luck!
