I am so relieved that I have not put on weight and completely surprised with a small loss.
All week I have been over eating mum’s food. I have found out that she has been feeling lonely so I went to visit her every day this week. I had my dinners with her. To my surprise we have got close as a result of my visits and our chats. There is a cheeky side to her that I have recently discovered.
I will carry on seeing her in the evenings and have my dinner with her but as Helen in the previous blog post commented I need to reduce my portion size.
From little I have seen UK is not the place where family takes care for the elderly. There is a good reason for it, the work life and commitments just does not make it possible. I wish I could say I do not fit the UK statistic on this point.
My apologies for digressing, just wanted to get it off my chest.
I am pleased with this week result, at the same time I need to get back on track and start losing 1lb a week. I so want to get to my target weight soon. This is dragging on but at the same time I am learning about myself.
This week’s result – Loss 0.5 (half a pound)
Total Weight loss to date: 23.5lbs
This week’s Weight: 12 stones 1.5lbs
Target Weight: 10 stones
Weight left to lose now: 29.5lbs
