Today I weighed in at 214lbs my lowest ever weight in a good 6 years!
I am absolutely elated and just need to hold on to this feeling while my motivation is strong
No longer am I craving all the rubbish food I used to and I dont beat myself up after a bad day I just get straight back on it and so far so good.
I think for me the ultimate motivation is my wedding next year I am determined to be a slim bride and not look like im wearing a tent!
In January 2012 at my heaviest I weighed in at 17stone 4lb after a long bout of illness and steroids, and at an all time low. Today I weighed in at 15stone 4lbs a whole 2 stone/28lbs lighter! Finally in remission with my Lupus I can really start to focus on keeping myself healthy.
The bes bit iby far is dropping 2 dress sizes and now fitting into a pair of size 18s which I specifically brought to keep me focused. Today I tried them on and can do them up although a bit tight. I have given a way all my bigger clothes so there is no temptation to get back in to them!
The journey so far has been a long one and some what challenging roller coaser of a ride. Its taken me almost 2 years to get where I am today and ive still got away to go yet but his time is different there is no turning back. Whether its a small goal or a big one I think we all need something to aim for , and this is what has helped me to stay focused.
Tried on wedding dresses at the weekend as my motivation to be a slim bride. Unfortunaely I fell in love with a dress that is due to go out of season! I am told that it can be altered to what ever size I want and if I put down deposit can be reserved for when I need it. Such a situaion now do I wait for the hope of another amazing dress when ive lost my weight or do I put down the deposit!!! Hmm decisions decisions!!!!!!!!!! ARGH
Fasting is getting easier now and I look forward to dinner.
On my 3rd week in and no longer craving high fat sugary foods on my feed days. Perhaps its knowing nothing is banned, perhaps my tastebuds are just changing who knows but is working! .
Converted to almond milk from cows milk now and have to say no longer have that bloated look or feeling.
I feel like I am gettinga better quality of sleep, where as before I would regularly wake 2 or 3 times in the night now I sleep all the way through.
Am yet to master sticking to an exercise routine bu slowly but surely things are moving in the right direction!
So today is weigh day and lost a 1lb not as much as I would have liked but hey its a loss and going in the right direction.
My aim this week is to schedule in some more exercise, and hopefully then can boost my weight loss
fast day had small breakfast under 200cals and struggled a bit this morning. But had small lunch 100cals which has kept me going. Half way now and keep going as I know nothing banned tomorrow. Although think I will refrain from the MCdonalds!
Day 2 is my feed day or non-fast day.
Expected to wake up feeling starvng but I wasnt so pleasantly suprised!
Ok so im only human but I had Mcdonalds for lunch as everyone at work had it! This is another challenge for me.
Needless to say didnt feel overly hungry at tea time, and although had Mcdonalds was still in my cals and fat so felt lucky there!.
