Determined

I have to counteract yesterday's bad news blog post with some good news.

Well I already started last night, as I wrote a comment below the other kind comments (thanks Guys) where I confirmed that I was able to rescue the salad stuff in the fridge, even though the cherry tomatoes were very ripe, as were the avocados. So yesterday evening I wrote myself the following comment:

I went to the fridge with trepidation. The romaine lettuce was eddible, as were
the very very ripe cherry tomatoes, the organic cellery was still crunchy and
perfect, the avocado (inside) just had to have a couple of brown bits cut off,
carrots (because they were in fridge) were still perfect so I shredded two.....
so I just made myself an enormous salad, added two teaspoons of pesto sauce and
drizzled it all in avocado oil. Was a big plateful and incredibly filling, and I
feel super now. I am so glad that even though I bought the stuff a week ago
today, that it was all still, luckily, okay.......There was a whole iceberg
lettuce in there that did tonight go in the bin, but I don't know when I bought
that..... it's a sin what we throw away.Anyway, thank you so so so so much for
the comments above. I promise you I will stay on track this week. I plan on
making lots of healthy soups for lunch in my Vita Mix so I really hope I pull
that off. Also plan on going to aqua aerobics twice this coming week, and drinking lots of water.


Today I have weighed myself again on the Wii Fit.

To recap:

on 7th Feb it said 13 stone 3 pounds,

8th Feb it said 13 st 6 pounds,

on 13th Feb it said 13 st 11 pounds,

on 14th Feb: 13 st 9 pounds and

now today 13 stone 8 pounds.

Considering that I started this journey on 2nd January, on a weight of 13 stone 7 pounds, it is like the calendar of time is moving while my weight stays still (well if you class couple of pounds Up down Up down Up down as standing still).

Not acceptable considering I know how to do this. I lost 3 stone in 2001 when I was getting ready for my wedding. I started then in 2001 in February and had lost it all by June. I know what to eat and I know what to give up. When I give up bread, sugar, etc........ the weight falls off. I just need to do it again.

I was sad yesterday when I read this blog, as this lady is doing exactly what I want to do, a steady weight loss of 2 or 3 pounds a week, meaning she is now 12 pounds lighter than how she started the year. I want to duplicate that.

Anyway, I am going to keep my head down and really get on with it this week. Drink lots of Super Greens, eat lots of fresh VITAL food, no sugar, no bread, no muffins, lots of exercise, lots of walking (I aim to walk in lunch breaks) and 2 sessions of Aqua Aerobics.

I aim to have good news by this time next week. I wish you all the same, my blog friends.

Oh and on my blog I have completely ignored Valentine's day which is naughty of me, given that hubby bought me a beautiful bouquet, gave me breakfast in bed, and a beautiful card.

You can do it. Don't just go by that Wii. Get on a real scale or measure your body. We loose lots of inches and sometimes no weight. If I can do this you can too. I am your biggest cheerleader.XOXOXOXO

I so agree with Belinda on measuring yourself. Even when I've been "bad" the measuring tape can be reassuring. You know, "oh, I'm up on the scale, but the tape says I'm still OK". Take a deep breath and re-group. You can do it, you know you can! Take care, Susan

Thanks Metro15. Your comment gave me the kick up the bum to start "speaking" again. I look forward to being more disciplined now :-)
