Well after last weeks weight gain I sort of lost the plot diet wise.. lack of motivation.. and then the cancellation of Angel led to the type of mourning that needs ice cream.So it's Monday it's a new day it's a new start.. I've got a new set of digital scales that tell me that I'm ywo pounds heavier than before last weeks set back ( ie two pounds lighter than their scales made me, and that's AFTER a week of non motivation). So it's goodbye to the club and hello to going it alone . I want to get a stone down from where I am now by the end of April, and I know that due to the mad workload between then and now I'm not going to make it to the gym.. so it's running kit out tomorrow , I've thrown the rest of the icecream away , the kitchen is full of fruit an veg and this time next week we'll see if it's working.
Good for you!
Me? Not doing so well. Found out that a lot of my trouble is probably thyroid related but can't afford the doctors so no way of telling. I'm bigger now than I've ever been. I'm going to try the South Beach Diet with the GF and see if I can at least get back onto the good eating habbit.
Oh I'm so glad that I live in the UK where Doctors are free!.. good luck with the South Beach thing I've heard that it's good and healthy too ( always worried about the Atkins thing gotta be bad for the heart).. bestof luck and ::hugs:: right back at ya
Just popping in to add words of encouragement. Sounds as though you know what works, and I think any indulgence last weekend was understandable... I woke up to less weight this morning, but I'm inclined to think that it's muscle turning into flab, because I didn't walk nearly as much as I planned to last week. Did go to yoga, though... I actually measured myself today (god, that was depressing), so should have a more accurate look at things this time next week, too.
Thanks for the encouragement! and best of luck in your continued efforts too and yoga! way to go!..I find that I need to eat quite a lot ( otherwise my metabolism slows down) but to keep mainly to fruit and veg. I'm vegetarian so I also have to get most of my protein from pulses and lay off the dairy and the bread ( bread is my weak spot). I also need to stop making excuses, Ok so I can't get to the gym much but I can spend an hour less on line and walk or run.
But I have a goal.. well several actually , I'm going to the Fusion Buffy/Angel con in April and then the James/GOTR stuff in May and I'd really really like to be able to fit into my wedding dress again in time for my 20th anniversary on June 2nd.. I think that last one is pretty unlikely ( I was 38, 24,36 in 1984 and 2 and a half stone lighter than I am now but hey I can dream can't I?)
I need to eat a lot, too, or I don't feel good; one of the reasons I was successful at losing weight before was that I brought nuts and fruit and veggies to work with me, and just nibbled all day. I do much better that way. If I don't have them, the donuts start looking good, and that's so not the way to go. I'm OK with whole grains, but need to avoid the really processed stuff.
It's good to have goals, not to mention dreams. :-) Good luck!
I feel like saying snap. I haven't lost any weight in the last 2 weeks, and completely fell off the wagon when I indulged in chocolate cheese cake on both Wednesday and Thursday :(
But I too want to lose a stone by May for the JM things. I hope when he sees all these slim beautiful women in the audience, JM will appreciate all the hard work we've gone through for him *g*.
Plus I don't go to slimming clubs. I don't think you can 'buy' will-power, you're either motivated or not.
mmmm Chocolate cheesecake
Yep I hope James apreciates the fact that he can sell more tickets to the gigs because his fans will take up so much less space!
As to the slimming club the idea was that having to go and way in would keep me on track, and to be fair it worked until that disasterous 4lb gain.. I think I could have coped with that at home but in the club setting it felt like a big deal , hence the demotivation..
Good luck with the campaign!
