I've weighed myself a day early this week; it's been a tough and shambly one. My Jump Start didn't exactly jump-start. I did it for a couple of days, but I've been feeling really sad and stressed, so I sort of gave up a little. Luckily I've still been faaaiiirly active with work, so I've not completely vegged out, but...yeah, not exactly focused. I've been eating healthily, and I ate out for the first time last night since I started this change (it was such a great treat!) and navigated that rather successfully, I feel. (I went for a really healthy but satisfying option) However, I haven't been tracking my nutritional information very much this week, mostly again because of the stress and sadness, but looking back, it's such a quick and easy thing to do, so I'm not going to miss out on doing that again. I've lost 1lb, though, which might actually be a better loss than my usual 3-4lbs, which was starting to make me worry whether I was loosing too quickly.
Positives, however, are that I have lost 14lbs so far, which is over a stone (I'm UK based, so stone measurements are my milestones) which is over 1/4 a way to my goal, as someone really kindly pointed out to me, which has made me kinda stop all of this nonsense and get back on the metaphorical horse!
And, although I can't see any physical changes, I wore my corset last week and I put it on and fastened it up with so much more ease than I have been, which was an absolutely amazing feeling! I'm clearly making progress. YES!
I want to give myself a treat for my hard work, and I was gifted a small amount of money, so I'm going to buy myself a couple of books as a way of rewarding myself for my first stone lost. I'm also going to allocate rewards at other milestones to really keep me motivated. Maybe at every half a stone/7lbs I loose.
Back to tracking, and I'm going to give the Jump Start another go this week.
