For regular readers you will be fully aware of my highs and lows on my weight loss journey. Losing weight, 4.5 stone in 2013 to be exact and then to give up smoking in 2014 and put back on most of that weight, has left me over the last few months dealing with waves of frustration and denial.
While using Jane Plan in December I did really well with the weight loss, that continued for the following weeks after Christmas but over the last 14 days I am floundering and I think I know why …
I have no definite goals to work with.
Previously I had set goals and expectations in my head of what I would like to achieve, however these last few weeks I have kind of lax about what I am going to do and have become wishy washy about what I need to achieve and how.
The Gym has been out the window these last 2 weeks. I am instead going to focus on getting outside either to walk or ride my bike. I am going to get out once a day to do something … instead of spending my time at home hiding behind a screen.
Weight loss wise I am now setting myself an achievable target of 2lbs loss each week.
With holidays booked for later on this year and the thought of donning a swimming costume making me feel sick beyond belief, I am now in full on panic mode!
So although I have no doubt that I won’t be losing the 6 stones extra I am carrying before the holiday. I don’t think it would be unreasonable to set myself a target loss of 2.5 stone weight loss before I fly on holiday.
I have to at least try don’t I? .. who knows maybe this is what I have been waiting for!
