getting back on track

Sunday, September 23, 2007

I had a bad few days leading up to and including the weekend of the 14th of September.

I was adding grains - by trying oatmeal. But went on holiday and went a bit wild with all the free food.

In all fairness, I didn't eat anything that was totally off-plan but did over-indulge on the SBD foods.

On my return from holiday I was afraid to weigh-in. And I didn't.

The whole of the past week I've been back on SBD - phase 2. I went back to the point where I left off - experimenting with oatmeal. I've not had any cravings. But I'm finding it hard to stay on track as my mind keeps wondering to forbidden foods.

I weighed today and I'm up a few lbs, I think. The scale is a bit crap anyway but I think I'm up about 2lbs.

But I'm not dwelling on the past or the increase in weight.

I'm going to drop grains (I don't think I can assess the effect of the grains as I don't have a clean baseline to work with). I will then focus on getting back to where I was before the slip-up. Then I will restart my grain experiment.



Victory on all fronts!

Sunday, September 09, 2007

Had oatmeal/porridge yesterday morning. And so begins the experiment with grains.

I weighed in today and I'm down a lb. so only 8 more to go!! The stranger thing is I seem to have lost a whole inch off my waist in the 2 weeks since I last measured. For the first time in ages, my waist is under 30 inches.

Also I tried on a pair of size 6 cords and they fit. They weren't even tight.

Emotionally, I'm in such great spirits too. My new job is great.

So I'm winning on all fronts!!!

I've lost another lb this week. I've been averaging a lb a week lately. That's kinda slow, but it's better than stalling. I'm going to have to find away to incorporate more exercise into my schedule.

Well . . . I'm happily chugging along in Phase 2 of the SBD. I've lost 22lbs since starting with another 18 to go.
I'm happy.
I like the food I'm eating. I like that I'm fitting into smaller clothes. I'm not afraid to look at myself in the mirror anymore.
I'm also motivating friends and family to do something about their own weight.

It's going well.



3 months later

3 months later and I'm back on Southbeach. Actually I went back on Southbeach towards the end of May. Since then I've lost 17lbs with my next weigh-in being tomorrow.

This time I'm loving it.

I'll try to write in this blog a bit more often. But I don't like writing very much.
