Ididnt keep a count today of my calories cos i kind of cheated
I bought my daughter her easter egg but because she's too young for chocolate i ate it! I bought it for what you got with it so it wasnt like i just bought myself an easter egg or anything!!!
Well, there you go, my confession is out!
I cheated, but hey it was the first cheat in week 3, and I have been really disiplined till then. I think i'm doing well and that's all that matters hehe!
Anyway. back to the grind - carrying on tomorrow, back to being dedicated to the cause!
I also had a bit of a moment on Saturday, i got asked if my daughter was my grand daughter Well, I knew it would happen one day, I'm well old enough to be her grandmother! and that even if people didnt ask they must have thought it - so god, I really need to try and look younger and that can happen with the weight gone and I'm back in my normal clothes.
Luckily no damage done from yesterdays cheat!
I don't feel as though I'm actually going anywhere this week though. Only got 2 more eaty days till weigh in and although I did say I would be happy with 1lb a week loss, I just feel for the effort and the weight I am I could be achieving 3 and 4lb losses for a while yet.
It's 3 months till my daughters birthday and I would like to have a photo of us both together for the first time in a year! So I want to go serious for that amount of time at the least.
If I really stick in and am good I could be looking at losing 30 more lbs, maybe even break the 200's.
Yes will make that my goal - for my daughters birthday I want to be at 199lbs and I will buy myself something to wear for her party that fits nice.
I don't feel I'm getting anywhere this week so took a photo this morning and I can see I am not so bloated anymore which is good.
Still got a long long road ahead of me but moments like this I need to see some progress happeneing!
heres a comparison from when I started less than 3 weeks ago and 12lbs lighter
It's not much different but I can see some differences.
I can't wait to start dressing better lol. My wardrobe is full of lovely clothes! I feel a tramp and I am doing the classic fat person thing - wearing baggy, shapeless and unflattering clothes which probably add a good few pounds!!
Not a good weigh in today, 235lbs
I hope this is just some false water weight thing going on. I would have to have had over 10,000 extra calories last night to mean I had put a few pounds on!! And I didn't do that!!!!
Measurements were good though. Thursday nights measurements:
I'm giving this past week a miss and strarting afresh tomorrow, so no weigh in on Friday because I have been VERY bad! Ok I don't think I have ANY willpower when af strikes. I just felt really hungry and didn't care.
But let's look at the positives.... I CAN diet for 3 weeks out of 4, it's just this one week that gets me. So even if I lose 10lbs in 3 weeks and put 5 on in one week I am still 5lbs better off right?
The overall picture is what I have to focus on. Gosh even if I lost 6 in 3 weeks and put on 5 in one week I would still be a 1lb lighter!!
So weigh in a week on Friday, and I will try and redeem myself
