Time for an update and reflection…
CURRENT WEIGHT - 11 stone 12.4 (a new low!)
So, as of this morning, my weight loss is at a new low, hurrah! But this was not the story less than a week ago… Last weekend, shortly after I had made my first entry into the 11s we had unexpected guests for the weekend. So, as is the way with having guests, I made a whopping cream tea, we had a huge Chinese take out and it was diet? What diet? How bad can it be…
Well the answer is both, really bad, and not that bad, all at the same time! Weigh in on Monday night (the guests stayed until Monday lunch and I just continued ‘guest mode’ for the rest of the day ) was 12 stone 4.7 (OMFG ) By Tuesday morning I was facing 12 stone 2.6 in the face and wondering if it takes about a week to lose an effin pound, how had I put on 3 in 3 days!? I was gutted. I told myself that a lot of it was gonna be food weight from over eating and eating late and probably water weight from bloating (your body’s way of saying, hey, thanks for the crap!) But at times like this in the past I would have just said ‘oh fuck this shit, it’s too hard!’ and got on the slippery slope back to my previous weight.
But, this time I just got straight back on the Huel (2 scoops, for breakfast and for lunch), watching calories (aiming for a 500-750 + calorie deficit, including calories burned off by exercise) and FitBit motivated steps (at least 10,000, usually 12-14k, including an hour or so long walk of about 4 miles and working off about 500 calories) and this morning, only 4 days later I am weighing in at 11 stone 12.4, my lowest weight yet.
I’m sure this situation will happen again, and I’m sure they’ll be weeks when the scales seem to be stuck or inexplicably go up (this is generally poop, it sucks, but 9/10 it’s a plumbing issue… ), but I’m going to try and remember this and keep on going, the only weigh is down as they say
Next milestone is 11 stone 11 - when I’ll have lost 1.5 stone, maybe this time next week, maybe…?!
