I have had a busy few weeks with a lot of family celebrations as well as going away for half term. Since my weight loss in Week 5 I was supposed to maintain my weight but I did have a further weight loss in Week 6. I have not been able to retain the ‘extra’ loss but I have been able to stick to the Week 5’s weight which is what I wanted to maintain. Yesterday was the last of the celebrations as it was Father’s Day so today is the start of me getting back on track.
I have enjoyed 3 weeks of eating and drinking more than my regular 1200 calories but it was important to have a plan in mind. I knew that I wanted to enjoy my break but I didn’t also want to totally out-do everything that I had worked so hard to achieve. I’m about 0.8 lbs away from a full stone of weight loss. That would have been achieved today if it hadn’t been for further celebrations last night!
My mission now is to get back into the swing of things and carry on losing weight. I’m very proud that I didn’t go totally overboard in my weeks of maintenance because it would’ve been very easy to drop all my plans and eat senselessly. Every other time I have taken a break from diets I have never mustered the strength to get back onto plan, I’m hoping this time will be different as this time I’m losing it for good!
