It is Monday so how am I doing on the weight loss front?
Well, I have given myself a bit of an easier week and had a few treats in the hope it might kickstart the metabolism.
I have lost one pound this week so a little amount but in the right direction.
I am not at all sure I will reach my New Year target but am trying to not put my whole reason for happiness on that issue.
I might do it. I might not. Healthy eating is a new lifestyle and I will continue with it.
On the inches front, my waist has gone down almost an inch in a week but let’s call it half an inch so it is now 34 and a half inches.
My boobs are about the same and I have had a little loss off the widest part too. So let’s say they are the same at 38 and 45 inches respectively.
Once again, these measurements are taken in the way that makes them as small as possible as I find that keeps me motivated.
I can certainly feel another pair of jeans hurtling into the too big category and bagged up 4 bin liners of too big clothes at the weekend. They will be winging their way to the charity shop.
As for Him Indoors, he said the other night that my tummy feels different. When I pushed him, he said it felt “less squishy”. High praise indeed. He is a man of very romantic words not. However, I was really pleased to see him noticing a difference especially on the yucky tummy front.
I have had a tough couple of weeks both physically and emotionally. I am proud that I have not gone into a big self-sabotage routine on the eating front.
I will be celebrating by buying a very festive outfit and publishing the picture on here in due course.
It can be done when the time is right.
