To say it would be a bad week on the weight loss front is probably an understatement and one in which I was at my lowest ebb, but not because of the food … more my ability to say NO…
I have always, always been a gluttonous person and my eyes have always tended to be bigger then my belly but with Christmas fast approaching I have been inundated with rich and nice foods from every direction.
I knew Christmas would be hard with parties, gatherings and an abundance of tasty treats but having had 2 meals out and a couple of hand slippages into the tin of roses it had left me racked with guilt.
Guilt that I have no willpower and guilt that I am fat so therefore I shouldn’t eat anything Christmassy at all and guilt that I had let everyone else down!
Halfway through the week after a falling off the Jane Plan diet .. I very quickly picked myself up and got back on track with eating Jane Plan again … In my defence it would be really easy to say I am giving up and going to enjoy Christmas without thinking about what I am putting into my mouth but that really is not what I want to happen.
So after my little drop offs this week and only one gym session I certainly thought I had avoided a loss and was at best just hoping for a maintain of the previous 8lbs I had lost from the 2 weeks before.
But I lost 2 lbs .. bringing up my total to 10lbs lost!
So even having a couple of blips on Jane Plan it seems I didn’t do too badly!
It also seems that I may have also discovered the key to keeping going .. In the past I have been too quick to fall off the healthy eating wagon and then give up, but after reading the Jane Plan website earlier this week it says that the eating plan can be used on a ‘weekends off’ basis and so not only does this sound fantastic to be able to maintain on a longer term basis but also it means I don’t have to kick myself too hard!
So far I have avoided all Mince Pies and Christmas Pud so all is not lost…. however with a full on cold with runny eyes and headache I am going to have to work hard at not falling off the diet plan this coming week (This is also why there is no video I this week, I would be spending the duration coughing!)
I am going to stop giving myself a hard time and just try to discover how to like me! … and lose some weight along with all the guilt
I am me and this coming year I am hoping I will finally look on the outside the way I feel on the inside
So come on week 4 …. I am ready for you!
