I'm planning to get back into posting for the Healthy You Challenge every week. I think accountability plays a big part in being successful so that's a good idea. My mum and I are also weighing ourselves every Monday and setting goals for the coming week. This is the second week of that.
Last weeks goal was no pizza which I managed and this weeks goal is no pizza and less chocolate. I've had pizza tonight but that's it. I think once a week is acceptable. The trouble with pizza is that it's such an easy yet yummy meal for me to make and my CP does mean I struggle a bit with lots of effort meals. Cutting down on the chocolate isn't something I've managed today but there's time. I'm also trying to drink more as I think I've not been drinking enough lately and that could well have played a big part in my being ill last week.
I lost five and a half lb last week!
I'm really pleased. But I'm also a realist and accept that a big part of that is probably due to having a migraine and throwing up four times on Friday and then not eating much Saturday. I would be happy with a maintain next week as I suspect that now I've been eating properly again a little of that weight is probably back on. Actually, I'd accept 1lb on next week but that's not the attitude to have.
I got my own scales back today! Yay! So I can weigh with more confidence now and will do that tomorrow. Although - and this is a major achievement - I was having a good balance day on Monday and did manage to stand completely unsupported on the scales for long enough to weigh (My mum hovered behind me and I had a wall and grab rails in front just in case). That said I am glad, very glad, to be going back to weighing sitting down.
And finally, my mum helped me measure my waist and it was 2cm smaller than when the nurse did it a few weeks ago. Progress!
