I would have shared some of my frustration in the Day6 blog but I can say that compared to my previous efforts calorie deficit has moved me from my previous plateau but I must admit to some frustration with counting every calorie.
I have not been able to exercise as I would like due to a bunch of niggling injuries; bum knees, sore back etc but the weight has still creeped down. That is positive.
On the more positive note, my sweet tooth is starting to come under some control. I still have to be very very careful but I am not craving sweets as much as before. I have a bar of chocolate in the fridge and it has stopped calling my name all day. Lol
I still think about carbs though. For instance I keep thinking about curry chicken and rice and I know I will be challenged to eat only a small amount so I will leave it till the weekend when I can spend a little more time at the gym. Luckily I still like the vegetable and fish soups and I love salad (no dressings other than lime) so I don't feel too deprived.
