Well I haven't really been weighing myself much recently, I've not been paying attention to the numbers which possibly explains why I didn't realise that MFP was a bit off when I posted this, I'd only lost a lb but hadn't noticed the badge had knocked down two, now I've logged it again yesterday and only then realise what had happened before so my counter hasn't changed as it was already representing my current weight two weeks ago, I obviously have an ultra optimistic counter! Still, I will post my counter again:
The one thing working in my favour is slowly getting back to normal, today is my first full week back at work and I'm already exhausted but that's kind of nice. I can do a lot of walking at work and one thing I missed about exercise (one of many) is that physical tiredness at the end of the day, it really helps me sleep.
So what next? I'll just carry on, I want to try and eat a little healthier and get back to more cooking in the evening but I won't be reducing calories or avoiding treats, just a little less treats and a few more lentils.
One thing I do plan to do is get new scales, my scales are slightly off but until I reach my current goal I'm not going to bother replacing them as it would feel like I've gone a few lbs the other way even though that isn't really true. I've actually lost more weight than I thought, my doctor weighed me the other day and I've actually lost 7lbs since this summer so as long as I'm going the right way I'll do my best to sit on my hands and not rush anything.
Thanks for linking up Sharon, you're doing fantastic. Just google what a pound of fat looks like! 7lbs since summer is better than I've done, I keep losing and gaining the same few pounds. I hope your first full week at work goes smoothly. xxReplyDelete
Thanks dear! Gross but it is amazing, it feels like nothing doesn't it? but it is quite a lot, just 5lbs look like an unimaginable amount. I'd be happier losing a lb a week but really as long as it keeps coming off I should take whatever amount! I'm exhausted already and really sore still from being examined on Monday but I'm over the hump so that's good! xxDelete
Woo well done! I can't wait to start work so I won't be sat around fighting the urges to binge haha. I go to weigh in tonight.. wish me luck! You're totally right by the way, its best not to rush it for longer lasting results :). Keep up the good work. xxReplyDelete

Good luck tonight! It will make such a big difference when you're back at work, I find myself so busy I rarely think about food but when I'm stuck at home I tend to snack more and I actually eat less fruit when I'm at home! xxDelete
