I’ll cut to the chase, 3.2lb lost this week! I had a whole week off alcohol and tried to stick to my quota of around 1000-1200 kcals per day.
It’s a great loss and it means it’s now a total of 13lb, so not too far from a stone. I’ll have to wait for the next weight loss though as we have a few trips booked during the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping to have just maintained by the time I write again and hopefully not have put weight on! ‘Just maintained’ isn’t as easy as it sounds and takes a lot of willpower as you enter the grey area of how many calories are you supposed to eat without gaining weight. I’m assuming we stick to the guidelines of 2500kcals for men and 2000kcaks for women. Here’s hoping that it works as it’s taken a lot of time and effort to get this far and I don’t want to blow it now!
Enjoy your bank holiday if you’re in the UK and I’ll update again soon!
