Grrrrrrr. I lost half a pound!! So I am half a pound off that 1 stone mark. Soooo frustrating but I am not giving up and I am doing all the right things. I am keeping a food diary so will ask someone to take a look at it next week at Slimming World. I am exercising 4 times a week and before I was doing nothing so surely the weight loss should be showing??
It must be something I am eating. Yes I do have the occasional treat but I am not going to stop eating those sort of things forever just eat them in moderation and this is a lifetime habit not just a short term thing.
I will continue what ~I am doing excercise wise and I will just have to keep an eye on what I am eating. Perhaps I am not eating enough?? i.e. my main meal? I just don’t know. I have stopped eating bread, I have 1 x packet of crisps a week (compared to 3/4 packets a day which is what I used to consume), I hardly ever have pasta now. I try and eat salads, chicken, jkt potato sometimes basmati rice, fruit. My diet is so different now compared to what it was 3 months ago and I seriously am expecting more weight loss than this especially with all the excercise I am doing.
Oh well, next week is another week and I will hit the 1 stone loss next week. Then I have to aim for my next half stone.
Bye for now.
Today has been tough. I started the day off well with a bowl of fruit and yoghurt but by 10.30 I was hungry and the hunger does not seem to have shifted. I have been sipping green tea and water in the hope the at the hunger goes away. In fact I am not sure if it is hunger as my tummy feels bloated/full but I just want to eat something.
I am not sure I know what hungry is so it is hard for me to determine whether I am hungry or just wanting food for the sake of it. I am sure its the wanting food for the sake of it but I am not sure why I want the food for the sake of it. Does that make any sense?
I got on the scales this morning and my weight seems to be the same as my weight at weigh in last Thursday which is slightly worrying. However yesterday I was (at one point) 4lb lighter. I guess it will just be the luck of the day tomorrow. My weight yesterday was at xx stone 6lb which is the lowest weight that has come up on the scales so far so I am hopeful that all I am doing is making a difference.
I have just found a book that I purchased a couple of years ago by an author called Marissa Peer called “You Can Be Thin” this book was recommended to my by a friend and I did read it at the time but I was not in the right frame of mind then to actually take action. So I have started to read it again. She provides tips using your mind to avoid bad foods for example; look at a pizza as though its a bit of bread with lard on it (the cheese). She also recommends putting some bread in some water and leaving it for a couple of days to see what it looks like after the couple of days have passed then imagine this in your stomach. I will tell you more once I have read more of the book.
Right so nice slow cooked chicken paprika for tea tonight, I am starving (or am I) so am really looking forward to it. Wish me luck for weigh in tomorrow. I think I need it after today.
