It has been another week where I have not behaved myself when it comes to changing my mind set over food. Thankfully I achieved a small loss again. This is despite my unhealthy eating patterns. I put this loss down to cycling. This is 8 miles a day over 5 days a week. If I missed a single day of cycling with my current eating pattern I am certain I would gain weight.
It is in the evenings I am at my worst over food. It is as if a different person takes over. Weight loss regime is put way back in mind and binging starts. I do mean binging. I will now try and think why I do what I do. Writing this blog forces me to explore this area. This is what I think are the reasons:
- When I get home, I am starving. I WANT FOOD straight away. I have a reasonable breakfast, followed by one of those Tesco’s light choices sandwich for lunch.
- I feel I deserve to binge. It is my reward for coping with the day
- Binging relaxes me. This is then followed by a little guilt.
- I cannot think of anything better than binging!
It has been another week I did not go to the gym. By time I leave for office, I am starving. The last thing I want to do is go the gym on my way back. I will not cancel my gym subscription for another week. My plan is to leave the office earlier, then go to the gym. I have now set aside Monday, Wednesday and Friday as gym days.
Little further good news for me is I miscounted my weight loss somewhere along the line by one pound. My total weight loss is now 13.5 lbs. I am pleased with this.
Finger crossed for half pound loss next week making a total loss of one stone. This will then give me the push to wear my normal clothes and put away my fat clothes – hopefully forever.
This week’s result – Loss 0.5lb (half a pound)
Total Weight loss to date: 13.5lbs
This week’s Weight: 12 stones 11.5 lbs
Target Weight: 10 stones
Weight left to lose now: 2 stones 11.5lbs
