I just weighed myself and I have put on 400grams. Now I know it isn't much but I am supposed to be losing weight! But I didn't have a good week. I began last Sunday and Monday with exercise on the treadmill and exercise bike (enough to make me sweaty). Each night I walk the dogs but one of them is so slow I don't consider it exercise for me. After Monday I had a bad day and snacked on two packets of those tiny bags of chips in bed at night at about 10pm. Not good considering I stop eating at 7.30. Well, I thought, I can get over this mishap. The next day I went to Woolworths and bought a packet of 12 chocolate choc-chip easter buns (I usually get the wholemeal with fruit but they didn't have any). And these chocolate ones were so nice I gobbled them up within 2 days (I could have done it in one but my family had one piece each). OK, I didn't exercise after that and didn't look forward to this weeks weigh in, and I wasn't surprised that I put on weight.
When I gave up smoking about 8 years ago, the hardest part was not going cold turkey. If I let myself have one smoke, then I'd let myself have another. Is this the same with carbohydrates and icecream? My weaknesses. Should I give them up 100%? (I may ask this in another thread).
Well, I can feel that time of the month is on it's way, so I am going to expect the worst. Tomorrow I am going shoping for extra veges and I am going to chop them all up into an attractive mix for snacking on (I love snacking on capsicum). I am also going to re-start some exercise on the bike and treadmill. My aim will be to get below 72.5 kilos by next Sunday.
