Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Linky Week 49!
How are you all doing this week?
I totally gave up this past week, I’ve not stood on the scales once… mainly because I am a little scared to, though as my clothes still fit ok, it cannot be too bad hey?
I’ve certainly been eating more recently, especially after a wonderful weekend trip to see Beth and her family. If you recall a previous post, Beth’s baby daughter is still in hospital, though I am hoping cuddles from Auntie Sim have given her some Northern strength and fight!
Cwtchy pizzas and a Christmas dinner warm up with Jenny and her family have all contributed to my recen fitness fail. Or so I thought, not a regular full body shot taker, I have an image in mind of what I look like and how my body has changed but a picture taken on Monday night alleviated any fears I had of what I look like. Albeit I look ridiculously tired and straggly (I blame the pressure of carving the turkey!), my initial reaction was ‘I do not look as fat as I thought I did!’ Yes, I can bloody say that because this is my blog and that was my opinion.
Not only have I shied away from taking full body shots, but I certainly never appreciated them being flaunted on social media. Now though I have no qualms at all, because I know I have worked damn hard to transform myself and my weight and I am proud. Proud of my resilience and the fact I cannot even recall the last time I had a drink!
Ok, ok, ok… I have just stood on the scales and I surprised myself. I am at D Weight, 4lbs away from target and a good half stone lighter than I expected to be. I haven’t been to the gym in over 2 weeks and haven’t been easy on the takeaways. I am not asking questions and I am taking it!
Have the scales ever surprised you? Do you find that taking a break from them helps weight loss?
