Sabotage - That's Me

Monday, May 05, 2014

I currently seem to be able to have one good week followed by a bad week so it really does seem to be one step forward and two back which means my weight loss journey is kind of in limbo. I seem to follow my good week where I sabotage all the effort I put in. I really don't get it as I am doing this to be healthier not because I want to get into a size 8 (which will never happen).

I joined SW in 20th August 2013 weighing in at 13st 5.5lb - and I have lost 1.5 stone since then. If I take out the three months Jan-Mar 2014 where I did not follow the diet I suppose this does not look too bad. Unfortunately I don't see me reaching my goal weight for my year anniversary, so decided to push my goal date back to November (basically adding on the three months I took off of diet). I am hopeful this is doable.

On a more positive note I measured myself 3 weeks ago and today I did so again thinking it had been a month ago which is my aim to do it each month. Anyway Lisa get to the point - I have lost 1/2 inch off my bust 2 inches off my waist and just over a inch off my hips - so the extra exercise I have been doing is clearly paying off even if it isn't showing on the scales.

This week I am replicating my meal plans from the week where I lost 5.5lbs to see if I can get anywhere close to that again. Personally I think it was a fluke but we will see.

    Well done Lisa for the weight and inches that you've already's all a great achievement.
    If you find out the answer to why you sabotage yourself I'd be interested to know about it because I'm ace at doing that too....why?
    Sometimes I think it's because I basically like the foods that just aren't good for me...sad but it comes down to decisions...lose weight or go back to square one again!!
    I think we both know the answer to that one!!

    that sabotage thing is so familiar to me - it's frustrating isn't it! still, at least there are good weeks (not all bad weeks!)
    If I find the solution to it, I'll let you know!
