I had chips on the weekend :s It was late after a friends birthday and I had a big plate of chip butties! Doesn’t seem to have made any difference at all though, I’m the same today as I was on Friday so the icecream and crisps I had yesterday didn’t count either :p
Anyway, Monday again, lets see how I do this week!
Well I started on ym healthy eating and exercise last Friday, 7 days ago and so far I’ve lost 7lbs I’m really pleased with that, takes my target to 33lbs away and shows that I’m doing something right, I’m not even hungry…just really pleased!
I started thinking earlier about how I’m concentrating too much on the fact that I’m not at the weight I want to be yet and never think about how much I’ve lost already. 36lbs to go seems such a huge way away but then I thought about the fact that I’ve lost 45lbs so far and it makes me feel good again.
…and I’m 4lb down. It’s a great start and it seems to be motivating me to be even better with my eating, down to 175lbs. Hopefully by the time I go on holiday this month I can lose another 4lbs but the main thing is I’m on track to be my goal weight by my birthday. Can’t even imagine what that’s like, last time I wasn’t overweight I was 13.
In two weeks I’ll be in Germany, I never eat much when we go there, nothing to tempt me other than the drink!
In five months I’m going to be 30. I’ve been obese most of my 20s and overweight the last year or so and soon I’ll be in my 30s. I want to get rid of what’s left and start the next decade feeling good about myself and not hiding in hoodies, I’m almost there. I see it sometimes when I look in the mirror, if I stand at a certain angle I can imagine what I would look like at a healthy weight but then the stomach gets in the way again and the image buggers off!
So I have 5 months in which I would like to lose at least 40lbs. This would take me down to being 139lbs which is in the middle of my healthy range and a reasonable goal to have, not too ambitious that it can’t be done but enough that I have to put some effort in for once.
Then, on my birthday, I’m going to wear the most gorgeous dress I can find and finally feel good about myself!
