Okay, so I know it’s not the end of the month yet, but the March update of my weight loss attempt is going up now because I’m away the end of the month on holiday and I’m not going to weigh while I’m away. It just seems daft to spoil what should be a relaxing time by worrying about what the scales are going to say.
It doesn’t help that I’ll be spending my holiday in Florida, with a few days in Walt Disney World and other parks, so eating healthy is going to be very difficult. I’m hoping that walking about a lot and some self control can stop it being a total disaster and the first April weigh in won’t be too bad. I’m kinda expecting to gain a little over the fortnight I’m away, but I’m determined not to let it derail what has been pretty good progress so far. Just chalk it up as a lapse and get right back on it.
The first half of March went quite well, and weigh ins on the 7th and the 14th showed some consistent losses. I cancelled out the poor finish to February and kept on moving down the scales.
The walk for Comic Relief and the effort towards Race at Your Pace has helped, and I’ve been doing a lot better in resisting temptation and making some healthier choices around food. There have been a few treats, but they’ve been smaller and less frequent. And I’ve stopped trying to make myself feel better with food.
Doing the Comic Relief walk and raising the money for it made me feel a lot better about myself, and passing the 2 stone loss mark also provided a real feel good moment and sense of achievement.
It means that in 2019 I’m about a stone lighter, and while I haven’t quite kept up with the vague goal of dropping half a stone every month I think it’s a solid showing for the first quarter of the year. If I can keep this up for the rest of the year I’ll be in much better shape.
And I’ve already got some plans in the works which should make the weight loss easier and help me start to feel healthier and more positive mentally.
See you in April to see just how badly the holiday effects my efforts.
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
