Started 1.2.13 at 179lbs
weighed 8.2.13 176
weighed 22.2.13 173
today 1.3.13 170
So over the last 28 days, I have lost 9lbs. I think I can safely say itís working!
In that time, I have not tracked any foodstuffs.
I have not changed my diet at all, other than to eat/drink things that are normally discouraged when trying to lose weight, and my exercise has not really increased, in fact because of a heavy cold, itís been a lot less over the last couple of weeks.
The only difference is the quantities. My appetite has reduced remarkably. I get hungry quickly, but Iím quickly satisfied too. If I exercise, I eat more. A simple thing, but Iíve not noticed it working before. If I eat too much one day, I want less the next.
I havenít been feeling deprived. I havenít had any cravings. I havenít been hungry much between meals, if I do I eat again.
It all sounds very easy. If you stick to the rules it is easy. It feels natural now to switch everything off when Iím eating, and to eat slowly, but I still have trouble concentrating on the food.
Iím off on holiday, on a cruise for a couple of weeks. It shouldnít make any difference. I donít have to Ďresist temptationí! I can allow myself full rein, as long as I eat when Iím hungry, and stop when Iím satisfied. Thatís the difficult one!
