This week, somehow, I managed to lose 4lbs which puts me at a 9lbs loss so far. It also means I got my half a stone award, AND I was Slimmer of the Week. It was a big day.
I was so paranoid about not having lost beforehand. I think it just shows you that weighing every day can be SO bad for you – I was worried I’d gain so I kept eating super healthily, whereas I probably wouldn’t have done that if I’d been aware that I was losing. Also, I’m not having horrible mood swings determined by my daily scale reading. I weighed on Saturday because I’m week and it was utterly rubbish – I should have kept on not weighing and I don’t intend to do a mid-week weigh again in future.
Someone in my class this week has done an amazing list of all of her mini targets, listening as many as she possibly can. This week, I’ve done the same – I’ve written down what weight I’ll be when I lose 5lbs, 10lbs, half a stone, a stone, 5% of my starting bodyweight, when I become “overweight” according to my BMI rather than “obese”, when I weigh less than I’ve ever weighed as an adult etc and I’m going to tick them off as I go. I’ve been as exhaustive as possible, using numbers from the overall project going back 18 months and this new class I’ve joined to make sure that I never, ever have to go very long without achieving some kind of milestone. It’s all about that motivation.
And I’ve also decided to buy myself presents for each half a stone lost. So I bought myself a nice new pair of shoes yesterday for my half a stone, and I’ve got my eye on some trainers for my stone award.
That’s all, lovelies. Anything you’d like me to make a video about?
