Adele's Progress

Postby A*Del » Sun Jul 08, 2007 6:10 pm

So the first week was not entirely productive. The only good thing is that I didn't gain anything.
In hindsight, it was stupid to start my weight loss journey on this particular week, as I was sure to have issues with emotional eating, and sure enough, I did. To cut a long story short, my mum had breast cancer a few years ago (she's alright now!) and was having her ovaries removed this week as a preventative measure. Nothing serious but it did bring up a few issues. So will power and motivation was a bit low.
But now is the start of a new week, and I've made a few changes. Firstly, I have decided not to give up chocolate cold turkey. For me it doesn't work. I brought a multi pack of freddos and smarties and will allow myself one of each a day. I find that if I haven't eaten it all day, once I get home I binge.
The annoying yet hillarious thing is, my brother is fundraising for his karate or something, and is using blocks of chocolate, so temptation is everywhere. Hopefully having my smaller smarties and freddos will make it easier.
Secondly, REWARDS!!!! :lol: I'm going to reward myself at every 5kg loss. After the first 5 I will buy myself Ghost Whisperer on DVD. On the second 5 I'll get a hair cut that will then suit my less chubby face. And on the third (goal) 5kgs, NEW CLOTHES!!!!! Short shorts, bikinis, all the stuff we all desperately want to wear.
Wish me luck on my 2nd week!
