Week 1 weigh in 18st 9.5 down to 18st 1 – 8.5lbs off.
Yesterday was a weigh in day but I was so busy all day that I just didn’t have time to post my results. Scores on the doors for week one are 8lbs down – which given that I only had two 3 meal days and the rest were nigh on 1100-1400 calories isn’t too bad. It’s not quite the giddy highs of almost 13lbs off in my first ever week on Lighter Life, but I’m not on 600 calories a day and only on liquid food. I still can’t believe I did 10 weeks without bars on LL.
Yesterday morning was stressful – I came in with one plan – spend the first 90 minutes on another last minute thing that was sort of my fault/not my fault – and then I had a 2 hour lunch to attend. Luckily it was a buffet lunch so it was easy to walk around with my coffee and sparkling water and I didn’t pay the sandwiches any mind. I kept thinking about how dry they would be and I didn’t actually fancy any of them – so all good there.
After work – I wanted to get my steps in because I have averaged over 10k steps a day in May so far and I wanted to keep that up – so I wandered around and I found myself wanting to eat. I ummed and ahhed and did a lot of looking-up online and in the end I went with a Pret Tuna Nicoise salad with no dressing. No more than 300 calories. It did the job. I’m at the stage where I know exactly what eating simple carbs will do to me so that’s good.
Oh – I forgot to say that when I had my protein meal on Saturday night, Sainsbury’s roast chicken slices which I had used as a protein stop gap are now disgusting – really sweet and pumped full of all sorts of crap, the recipe has definitely changed – so I won’t be having that again!
I’m also having issues having my next Exante delivery delivered – I can’t carry it home from work and although there are people in my apartment all day I can’t guarantee any of them will open the door to the delivery so I might (gasp) run out of bars this week if I’m not careful.
I had weird thoughts yesterday about how long it is going to take me to get to a sensible weight. I’m being filmed at the end of September and if I don’t stay committed for the next 4 months with absolutely no room for mucking about I’m going to feel awful about the film.
I’ve been battling with my weight for nigh on 30 years now and I am so so tired of it. I wish I could feel good about being this weight – but I don’t. I do not look the way I think I do. More on that later.
