First taste of success 2.7kg lighter!! Yeah
I started the week by facing my fear of actually going out and buying new scales only to find I was 8.6 kg heavier! I knew my old scales weren't spot on but wasn't prepared for the disappointment and shock of that much weight. First achievement of the week - I moved on and focused on the positive of starting on a true weight and tracking real results.
I had three events I was a bit worried about. I stuck to my plan at the first two (only had two drinks and made sensible choices) and the third dinner I lapsed a little but not too much. (2 extra drinks and ate two bread rolls served with the dinner)
Exercise was pretty good this week. I have started slowly just walking for about half an hour 5 out of the 7 days. I have started walking in my lunch at work as it s much easier than getting up at 5:30 to walk or going out for a walk after we have put the kids to bed.
I think this week is going to be a pretty quiet one which is good. I am going to focus on making sure I have my 2lt water each day. I find it really easy at work but not so easy when I am at home. Also I am going to try not to expect too much weight loss. I understand that 2.7kg is not achievable each week, so I am setting some mini goals.
First six weeks aim for 1kg per week
Celebrate when I lose 10% of my weight (13.4kg, 120.5kg)
I have been thinking about how I am going to celebrate and I think I might have a full body massage. I am also going to start putting away some money each week for my treats maybe $5 per kg? Not sure it will be enough for the massage but will be easier to pay for at the time I get it.
