Unfortunately, that has brought the results of weight gain, as we haven't been eating as well, grabbing lots of convenience foods and having to eat out, all just generally rubbish and I HATE IT!!
So I have come to a point now where it's affecting my health and mental wellbeing and so it's time to take back some control. Today, once more, it's a new start!!
I've been mulling it over for ages on and off and felt quite desperate to get a kick start and so was even considering those diet shakes but I can't see how that is good for you really. It's not real food is it, it's chemically based I think.
So I think I'm going to start off by taking the principles of SW and eating better, but maybe not going back onto it properly straight away, as I need to get back in the zone and I'm at a convention next weekend, although where I can stick to it, I will as that's what I want get back to ASAP.
I'm giving myself some slack until after the convention though because it's not always easy to get exactly what you need food wise and that weekend is a treat weekend, where we can kick back and relax in the evenings and is sorely needed. I don't want to be stressing over food. I'll try to be sensible-ish. I don't want to put it off until after though, I think if I semi start even, it'll help me show a bit of restraint at least.
I want to start some walking again, which I do feel the benefits of, but making myself get out there and actually do it when I'm so tired is a chore at the moment.
Thankfully, my eldest son likes to walk, so maybe we can drag each other out. 🤔
When we walk, we tend to go between 11pm and midnight as that's when we are both free, so by then I'm trying to beg off but I will try and get strict with myself and just do it. Once I'm out I actually like it, its just getting yourself out there, lol.
Anyhow, I got up this morning and meant to weigh in but without thinking ate some breakfast first.
If I don't start today though I'm just going to keep putting it off, so I weighed myself anyhow. So here we go, I have a starting point now.
Let's look at the damage then...
10st 12lb 8oz.
So, not looking good at all, BUT, it's a starting point and hopefully I can improve those numbers from now. *Determination*
I might even take a couple of weekly pictures too and put them on here, for a visual reference as well.
I plan to use this as a daily diary to keep me focused, so I'll be writing what I eat each day, maybe pictures too, whatever I find helps me keep focused really.
I also have a Fitbit, so I might put some stats on as well.
I need to do this now.
So here's hoping!!
