Welcome to the Weight Loss Wednesday Linky!
I am holding my hands up and admitting I screwed up last week. That track that I was meant to be on? I totally came off that, not in a big way, however it does mean that I have had to start the whole regime… again. Curry night was something I could not miss out on though!
It almost seems like last week was meant to be as I am currently on Day 3 of the New You Plan and have been to the gym twice in that time. I have managed to jump the dreaded Day 2 hurdle and have started today with renewed vigour… but also spoiling for a fight. I am putting that down to the fact I am on roughly 600 calories a day, not because I am a moody sod, so took it out on the gym!
The stage of feeling icy cold, shivering, feeling immense hunger and suffering with headaches is now over, so I can officially state I must be in ketosis now. My body will definitely be burning fat to produce energy – knowing this makes me want to move even more… Impatient? Me? Whatever gave you that idea?
I am a huge advocate of having a goal in mind to help keep you focussed and motivated. Determination shines through and pushes you forward to that all important goal – whether it be a special occasion, a holiday or a new item of clothing you wish to rock, always have an incentive when on a weight loss journey.
Since I started back on the diet on Monday, this morning the scales recorded a loss of 7lbs. Yep, that’s half a stone in 2 days. It may sound amazing, however that will be water retention, so I am not jumping for joy just yet! Last week I craved fizzy drinks which will not have done any favours – I mean, who actually sits in a pub and has a soft drink? Well, it looks like I do and will be moving onto water from now on upon my return.
How are you all doing this week though? Has motivation kept you going through?
