Week 42

Week 42

Current weight 12 stone 8.25 lbs…which is roughly 79.94 kg or 176.25 lbs

Now I can’t lie, I am very happy to have maintained my weight this morning. Last Friday when I weighed myself I had gained 3 lbs since Tuesday morning and I was not happy, but also was aware why I had made the gain over a short period of time.

I can’t lie, this past week has been really tough and I don’t totally know why, wanting to eat food I wouldn’t normally eat was part of the issue and craving fizzy drinks really didn’t help. Work has not changed, however, some of my meal choices have. I was still eating within my calories but actually a couple of burgers with brioche buns and chips made at home, all calorie counted (well roughly) didn’t keep me full, or I should say leave me with the feeling of being full. I am going to spend a few weeks not eating red meats and staying away from actual bread. I say actual bread as I eat wraps and don’t view them as bread and they are something I eat all the time! But this sudden need to eat just literal came from nowhere, in the evening I am sat arguing with myself and wanting to snack, luckily there are no snacks in my house I can just eat, only healthy choices but it isn’t as straight forward as that as I want all the things that not only are high in sugar but also waste money.

Since last Friday I needed to use an immense amount of will power to not eat sugary food, but that is not how I wish to live my life, I want to be able to eat anything I want but stay within moderation for unhealthy food and expensive food. I like to go out for a meal now and again and it is easy to make the healthy choices as I enjoy eating them but this strong urge to overeat has just crept up on me from nowhere and wonder what others do or do people just give in? I should add I am very aware of the 80/20 rule which is why I actually go out for meals, and also I drink hot chocolate most days and let’s not forget Tuesday evenings I currently have chips from the chippie every week, so I am not craving treats as I have treats, but at the moment I want them all the time.

Finally, I was reading an interesting article the other day about how the healthy way to lose weight is to lose between 1/2 and 1 lb only a week and so I think although I have lost more some weeks I am following that rule which is good, but in addition it was interesting that it also suggested that once you plateaux that is stop losing weight, to take a break of 6 months before returning back to weight loss. This was to do with your body wanting to keep what it was currently getting it and allowing it to do that. Whilst I type this I have spent half and hour trying to find the article I should add to no avail sorry!
