In one word: horrendous!!!!!!!! Half way through the week I felt like chucking in the towel… then I suddenly realised that I couldn’t, and it got a little better, but on Saturday night, after an argument with Hubby-to-be and him leaving for a night shift, I quickly devoured 5 (yes 5) Penguin bars, followed by a few packets of crisps and I spent the rest of the night hunting for things to pig out on.
I know I am a comfort eater, that’s my biggest issue. At least, though, I admit it! I was unhappy and my first instinct was to reach for the chocolate and gorge myself. This gorging wasn’t helped by the onset of the wicked witch; leaving me a bit of an emotional (and hormonal) gibbering wreck…..
Today, I’m relatively pleased with my progress…. I have beaten 18st down with a rather blunt object… and am now on my way to 17st… However, I know I am not safe yet. 0.2lb is nothing, I can drink that in a coffee, I can also get rid of it when I have a whizz. When I get to 17st 12lb, I will be able to relax a little more, but I know one thing for certain – I’m never seeing 19st again!!!! (If I do, you have permission to slap me across the face, or hit me with the aforementioned blunt object, whichever is easier for you!)
Although, this week has been a bit topsy turvy, there have been positives…
My (well Sim’s) wedding dress is sat in Boyo’s wardrobe…. I’ve measure the waist and have roughly 7” to lose from my own waist… But I’m heading for 9”.
My new ‘get into jeans’ arrived on Saturday, and I’m already wearing them. I’m a size 20!!! I haven’t been a size 20 since before I had Boyo (8 years ago). I’ve lost 3 dress sizes in 3 months.
I bought myself some new clothes on the weekend… all size 20… Yay!!!
Overall, I really am back into it this week…. I would like to be safely into the 17’s next Monday, hopefully even close to hitting the 2st lost mark!
