Under Pressure

For the first time since embarking on my weight loss, I am feeling under pressure. I think part of my success is that I haven’t had much at all until now.

Looking back over the last couple of months, with some major gains and losses over Christmas and January, I have only really lost 3lb overall since last November.We are going on holiday in July and I am determined to go away feeling comfortable with myself.

However, the months are passing by very quickly. We are nearly in March and I am starting to feel anxious that I won’t get there in time.

So, some great advice from group tonight and some small changes are needed to better my chances:

1. Write everything down – I always do better when I’m keeping a food diary, which I haven’t done for a while

2. I’ve started sprinkling a bit of cheese on food. Not a crime, but I should at least me measuring, calculating the syns and recording this. The food diary will help keep track of this

3. I’ve started being a little lax with my lunch. Rather than eating properly, I’ve been grabbing some fruit and only eating that. This needs to change and its a signal of old bad habits where I wouldn’t eat anything all day due to being too busy. So, its proper lunch from tomorrow.

I am 3.5lb away from my 8 and a half stone award, so I am going to try and do that this week. I’m hoping that will give me the boost I need.

I am still struggling to fit any exercise in. I’m hoping that I can crack this soon. I have to. I need to, but just feel so tired at the moment.

One thought on “Under Pressure”

  1. Chin up Matt. You have done extremely well. This is a blip. You are an inspiration to the rest of us, who feel extremely weak willed in comparison to your achievements. Try to focus on the feelings you had when you first started on your healthy regime. You are strong enough to get there. Exercise will kick start the loss again and also lots of water.

    Good luck

    Granny 🙂
