I can’t believe its been almost three weeks since I last posted on here. In my defence, I’ve been busy, on holiday and ill, not necessarily in that order.
My weight loss is still going great guns, I stayed the same this week but that was to be expected as it was my time of the month. I kept meaning to make a post but things kept getting in the way. I don’t really have much to say, other than I’m still making good choices when it comes to what I’m eating and doing.
The good thing with weight watchers is that nothing is outlawed, if I want it, I can have it. But I’ve been trying to keep as healthy as possible and not eat too much fast food. Since Jan 1st this year, I’ve had no pizza. No McDonalds. No burger king. No massive bars of chocolate, no gorging on cakes and biscuits.
I had a takeaway when I was on holiday but I had a very small portion of chips with a fish cake. I’ve had chocolate but instead of buying one big bar, I bought a multi pack of small bars of chocolate and a five pack lasted me about 10 days. I’ve found healthier options to the old food I used to eat. Before I changed the way I was eating I used to eat Domino’s Pizza three to four times a week. Now if I want a pizza I make my own. Its dead simple. I use either a weight watcher wrap or a mission deli wrap for the base, a couple of tablespoons of tomato pasta sauce, low fat cheese and whatever toppings I want which is usually ham, mushrooms and peppers, topped with a bit more cheese and baked on a pizza tray in the oven for 10 mins. The wrap goes crispy and its absolutely beautiful.
I still love food, I still have a love/hate relationship with exercise, but overall things are going well. I’ve lost 23 and a half pounds in eight weeks, I’m 2 and a half pounds of my 10%, 4 and a half pound from my two stone, and 1 and a half pounds from 25lbs lost.
I still feel confident and know that I’m going to get to my goal weight, how long it takes isn’t the point of the journey. It will take as long as it takes. I’ll get there eventually.
