So last Monday I plucked up my courage and stepped on the scales of doom. And doom there was…
Ouch. That puts me right back where I was last time I was trying to lose weight. None of this maintaining business, we’re back on the losing game.
I monitored my diet. I made the odd good choice and the odd bad choice, but generally speaking I thought more about portion sizes and did more good than bad. I only drank alcohol on one night in the week (admittedly I had quite a bit, but hey, it was just one night. Drink responsibly Extreme Fans). I avoided snacks and when I didn’t, I had less than normal. I literally cut myself a sub-1cm slice of birthday cake when offered it, just to have the taste, and that was enough.
|Here’s me on a tiny trampoline at a bootsale. Keeping it fit.
The weather’s getting back to the point where porridge is a viable breakfast option as well, so that’s definitely a help for me, gets me having less bread, cheese and eggs in the morning, which I would pretty much have in vast quantities every day if I could!!
I went to Step, Aerobics and Tone, Bootcamp and Aerobics again. I cycled a lot, then I cycled back again. And today I went to Step again. And before that class I weighed myself, and what did I see?
Woo hoo! That’s 3.5lbs of my stone to lose before Christmas. That means I just have 8.5lbs left to go for a fabulous Christmas of fitting comfortably into my size 8 Levi jeans. Bring it on!! If you wanna join us, step right in, it’s really helpful to have supportive friends!
