I’ve hit a plato! I’m 8 days past my 2 stone goal and I am still 5lbs away! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong…I’m working out as much as I can, I’m so busy with work but I set myself a target of at least 3 workouts per week which in writing doesn’t seem that much, and I have achieved that every week but it’s been tough – it can be hard getting to the gym on a week day when I’m working or travelling etc…
I’ve shared with you before that my weigh in routing involved me using the same scales every week on a Saturday…last week I noticed they had broken (they’re electronic) so I told the staff at the gym and a week later they’re still broken – there are scales elsewhere in the gym but I like to use the same ones…then I know it’s totally accurate to my loss…I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the scales I had to use this week are actually about 2 lbs out and I’m only 3 lbs off target…what are the chances?!
I have a few events coming up…just small things I’ve decided to use as small targets…a visit back to my home town – I want to look – well I just dont want people to see me and think ‘wow life has been good to her – she’s never been short of things to eat!’….and at the end of December I have my big work ball…last year I was my heaviest. I thought I looked really good, I shopped for a really special dress and spent alot of time and money getting ready, then in the entrance of the venue the organisers took photos of people as they arrived and put them up on a big screen as we sat down to eat dinner…and I looked AWFUL! I literally looked about 5 sizes bigger than the friend in the photo with me…this year I want to be ready for that photo…And I will be judging myself..it’ll be like my own personal comparison ball in my head…I MUST be below target 2 stone before then.
…Btw I have already chosen my menu…salmon starter (there was a cheese option) and fruit for desert! Choc and christmas pud was an option – if anybody wants to suggest I’m not trying come on…I dare you! :)…
If anyone has any great festive food and drink diet alternatives PLEASE let me have them…I didn’t struggle with cravings a month ago and recently there are cakes and sweets and CHEESE everywhere and I want them all! I havent had any but It’s getting so difficult to resist – I think when I lose again I’ll remember why I’m doing this so thats whats keeping me going atm…but I truly think if I didn’t drink any alcohol I would lose more…in this the party season with so many things to do and places to go and be can anybody suggest a great low cal party drink?
No photos until I meet that goal…watch this space for it though because it’s going to be so good! (I keep telling myself)…if anybody reading this has lost weight and has any advise please share…this has been the hardest few weeks since I started this process.
Right I’m off out to walk the bichon then take him to get a christmas haircut at the groomers!
Seasons Greetings Folks :)
