Week 16 – 1 1/4Lbs Lot – 4 1/2 Lbs Away From 3 Stone Lost & A Little Confession
This weeks weigh in was again a little disappointing. Having moved up to step 3 two weeks ago I expected my losses would be a bit better after the SS+ stagnation period I had gone through in recent weeks and I should be losing more than this a week but I think I know why I didn’t lose much this week…………….
I feel like I am making a big confession this is the first week (since Christmas week) I have had a few things I shouldn’t have had and I think it is important to be honest not only to myself but to others reading my blog too otherwise I am just kidding myself and my consultant. I am fairly sure I am not the only one following the plan who has done the same thing but I do hold my hand up and it was only THIS WEEK!!!!
I am only human like most of us and this week kinda got a bit too much for me with only having a lb or so losses for the last few weeks and flitting between my house and my mums house a bit more than usual helping look after her and I got out of routine quite a bit.
So when I realized biscuits where in the house I couldn’t help but have 2 or 3 …OK 5…..as a treat this also lead to…a ready salted packet of crisps the next day and a ham roll the next day plus some diet coke, not enough water each day and a bit more milk than I am allowed on step 3. I also recall pinching a small Yorkshire pudding off my other half’s plate while they were not looking (from a Sunday lunch) OK you may laugh and as I am writing this I am kinda giggling too but…
It is hardly a a big dirty McDonald’s loaded with fat and calories or a big chocolate cake but all the same eating things which are not in the plan. Although I did lose this week I could have probably lost more and got closer to that 3 stone loss milestone had i had not done those things
I know a few people reading this will totally understand and even have a giggle to themselves and say “well i’ve done that too” and some will frown, however I try to look on the positive side of things as I am the smallest I have been for a long time and I am really losing weight and feeling so much better so to me this isn’t a joke really BUT I am not going to beat myself up about it either!
- I know what I have done wrong this week
- I admitted it
- Will I go off plan again………….hell no!
- Have I learned what a few cheats can do to what started out as a good week on plan…..hell yes but I am not dwelling on it!
- Will I make the same mistakes…………..hell NO!
Next week I am going to be under 15 stone for the first time in probably 5 years……..bring on next weeks weigh in.
