Week 33

Week 33

Current weight 13 stone 1…which is roughly 83 kg or 183 lbs

Wow, 1/4 lb I must confess when I weighed myself yesterday I did not think I was going to lose weight today. The past week has been incredibly busy, I have stayed on track with ensuring I had food prepped in advance I should add. But on Friday to reward myself (the suggestion was a Chinese but actually I do not believe anymore that food should be seen as a treat!) I had after 2 months and 15 days my first fizzy drink (zero calorie). I have to say what I was hoping for was my mouth to say ‘yuk’, the reality is it tasted just as nice as I remember it tasting. But I have proven to myself that having one, did not immediately result in me returning to drinking it every day.

I do sincerely believe that moving over the boundary between weights is psychologically harder than it actually is, getting below 14 stone felt like a challenge and now getting below 13 stone is proving to be the same, but I have confidence I will do it if I keep to my own rules that food is fuel, it is there to enable you to live and function and is not a treat that you earn through hard work. You can eat whatever you want when you want, but if you eat more calories than you burn you won’t lose weight and may end up putting it on, that is a fact.

In case you are wondering why the incredibly busy week is an excuse? Actually my main reason for not thinking I would lose weight is I went out for dinner last night. I do this once a month (although didn’t last month) and we didn’t eat until 8pm, when I normally eat around 6pm or if it is later it is not a large meal! Last night I had a yummy risotto from Prezzo which they allege is only 471 calories, I am not so convinced but know it had the least calories on the whole menu, and even if it didn’t, I really love risotto so would have still had it, just not so late.

The challenge in the week ahead? Well things have shown no sign of slowing down at the moment, and this Saturday I am driving to Derby and back in one day via Birmingham and so meals will be dictated sadly, although breakfast not so much. Then next Sunday I am taking my father and niece out for our birthdays (yes I know they were all last month but it was the first date we were all free). So, am hopefully going to break the 13 stone mark, but actually….even more hopeful to get into my smaller work trousers as the larger ones are hanging off me!!! And yes, I know I still need to add the blueberry oatcakes recipe! Having frozen them and now eating the frozen ones…still as good I need to say.
