Weight loss this week (feeling smug!)
Since Monday I lost five and a half pounds, and I am not altogether sure how!
Weight is a constant battle for me since I got ill three years ago, I doubled my body weight while I was bedridden and just cannot shift it because I keep ending up back in bed for weeks at a time, the key for me really IS exercise. Before I was ill I was an extremely active person, which is why when I couldn't move my weight piled on so fast. And its so much harder whn you love to cook too, although I am really used to cooking for other people now and just having a taste for recipe evaluation, lol.
This week my husband went away, so maybe pining has something to do with it. I did not do anything special, I ate a restaurant once (had a creamy haddock crepe and a salmon version of salade nicoise) and have had two glasses of wine (another dieting no no). I did not even get that much exercise.
Anyway, it has been a great shot in the arm and I feel inspired! So now I am going to build on these foundations and really make effort to lose, not just "not gain" weight which has had to be my goal for so long.
Sorry to gloat, it is just that it has been a long time since I felt I made any progress!
