While knowing things don't get back to normal overnight - I have realized my smaller portions are starting to satisfy me again - in contrast to a few weeks ago when I started to get back on track and I felt like I was eating "tiny" portions. In reality that's what you convince yourself to think because you've constantly overeaten and expanded your stomach.
While today is day 5 - I can't see any visible difference (slimmer face, looser clothes, anything!) even though I've not passed my target calorie range at all - and have been physically active - informally e.g. walking lots, housework, rigorous stuff etc.
But I am telling myself....well it always starts like this - you feel the sharp pinch, things are tough - but your perseverance makes it easier. And just cos you don't see results doesn't mean you should throw the towel - when you start again it'll be far worse.
In any case, I feel quite proud for getting back on track and doing it right. I have had no slip ups or cheats so I am feeling confident.
Hopefully with formal exercise back into the mix it'll start shedding again... I've gained 2 spare tyres! I have to get rid of them.
