So, after my diappointment last month, I knew I couldn’t cope with waiting another 4 weeks to weigh myself. Instead I went for the opposite approach and weighed myself every day. Here’s what I discovered:
- My scales vary a lot from one day to another – maybe they are not very good, or maybe it’s because I have them in an awkward corner where it’s hard to stand on them the same each day.
- Reducing my calories down nearer to the guideline amount seems to have made a difference.
- Mentally I am coping better now that I know I have lost at least a little.
This month I lost somewhere between 2 and 4 pounds, depending on which day you believe the scales. I also continued with my mini callanetics programme twice a week at home and have lost half an inch off my waist and another inch off my hips. Which is very pleasing.
This week I will only have one low-calorie day as I am away, but as this eating plan is for the long term I guess that’s nothing to worry too much about so long as I don’t go mad and eat all the butterscotch cake I made for my Dad 🙂
Hope everyone else is also pleased with their progress so far.
