Health and Weight Loss 35

So things haven't been going so well with the health or the weight loss.

Health and Weight Loss 35 | Morgan's Milieu: The weight is piling on, but I'm determined, at least this week, to keep it in check.

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!

  1. It's a great idea to have meal plans, we are going to start doing that. It is too easy to opt for a pizza because we haven't got anything in to cook or out of the freezer to defrost x

    1. Oh it really is easy to do! Chips, pizza... the list is endless. :(

  2. I can empathise with this, I have lost over 2 stone and I have lost my way lately and it's started creeping back up again, so I am desperately trying to refocus. Good luck :) #fitnesstuesday

    1. Thanks hun. Over the years I lost about 4 stone and am watching it creep up. It's just so easy to give up. :( Need a good kick! ;)

  3. Oh lovely, I feel your pain, but it's really good you are sticking to meal planning and controlling your portions. As I have suggested before, you cannot eat the "wrong" stuff if you don't have it at home, so try stocking on the "right" stuff, and you will soon see it's worth it. have you thought about joining some classes or what kind of exercise do you like doing? Give me a shout if I can help in any way and thanks for joining #FitnessTuesday again x

    1. Thanks so much hun. I've never really considered classes before, just the thought of having to go somewhere to work out, then come back, get changed, shower... all seems like I'd think it was too much effort. I'm finding it hard to get the motivation to run on the treadmill!
      That's what I was doing a while back and it worked well. I just need to get back to it! I'm truly thankful for the advice Mirka. Thank you xx
