My weight a few days ago was 11st 9.3 lbs, I haven't weighed myself since partly due to the fact that the scales need new batteries and partly because I'm scared to. My weight keeps creeping up and I know 12st is just around the corner. I CANNOT allow myself to hit that weight again, it was so hard to lose it in the first place!
My steps last week were pitiful too at just 25,847 for the week. I'm so disappointed in myself.
I figure my slump in progress is slightly to do with the weather change. I don't want to eat salads because it's so cold, and I do want to stock up on comfort food. Soups, bread, bread, and more bread.
However, when I went shopping this morning I was really good and bought things for family meals this week. I planned what we'd be eating for the rest of the week and stuck to it. I've even set reminders so I don't forget about things and have take-away instead. Because that's what I do...
When I don't feel like cooking it is far too easy to give up and say "let's have take away" to which the boys (that's all three of them) give a loud cheer!
But no, I'm not going to do that this week and even if it means throwing some food away I'm going to keep a check on my portion sizes. They've been creeping up of late and it's time I stopped it.
In the run up to Christmas it is so easy to give up and think "I'll start again in the new year" but I can't do it. If I don't watch myself by the time Christmas comes around I'll be back to 14st and that isn't an option.
I really appreciate all your support over the past few weeks and I think writing about my struggles definitely helps me.
Now all I need to do is stick to it!
