Good morning ladies and what a lovely one it is!
The old me is back and I'm feeling more positive and energised than last week, when I first starte the TF diet!
I did enjoy dinner with my family last night for Dad's birthday. I had a small share of all the dishes we ordered and even ate a small amount of steamed rice. I had a small slice of chocolate mud cake (had to because it was birthday cake!
Enjoyed the night but felt terrible when I arrived home. I didn't think I had eaten that much but I felt like I had eaten two whole cows or something, so obviously it was too much for me - maybe my stomach has shrunk or something???
Anyway, I weighed myself this morning and have gone from 89kg up to 90.5! I was disappointed in myself because I have no-one else to blame for that but myself....but it has made me more determined to stick to this diet 100%! Also, seeing my younger sister there looking lovely and slim with great clothes, made me remember what I used to be like before I gained weight and I want to be that again - and wear nice clothes again.
So, I am with Dolly and am back on this diet 100% - no slips-ups or excuses. I'm also not going to have a 'free day' because once I start eating 'normal' food, I can't seem to stop myself, so it is easier for me to stick to this if I don't allow myself a day off. Don't you guys feel bad though, you do it if you want to, I don't mind at all and totally understand why you'd want to have a day off.
I also read an article about waist measurements and their relation to health problems and it made me worried but also made me re-evaluate my lifestyle. Women with a waist measurement over 80cm are at increased risk of health problems such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack and many other things. My waist measurement is 104cm at the moment, so I have a huge amount of work to do but WILL do it by following this diet and exercising properly! That is my promise to myself and my family
So, I've had my strawberry and cream shake this morning and feel really good again.
I WILL DO IT - WE WILL DO IT!
My thoughts are with you today and I'll check back in later to share my day with you guys.
Have a great one !!
