I had a wonderful surprise yesterday and wanted to share it here for you. As most of you know I have been on a healthier choices mission, Not a Diet because that word just lines me up to fail.
I decided to make healthier choices in my foods and my husband Chris would join me in this. Like many out there I struggle with the what foods should I eat and what meals that are quick when you have been to work all day. I didn’t just want to eat salads.
Well all of this was well and good and I even tried to get active, no not going for jogs, gentle exercise on the Wii, all was fine and dandy and just my cutting fat content, leaner meat, low fat where possible, not buying biscuits stop going to the supermarket on a whim for chocolate or crisps each night but allowing them as a treat. The weight started to come off.
Of course it showed on Chris big time, it just dropped off him, my meds meant it took much longer but it was coming off. 1 1/2 stones worth.
Then my back took a turn for the worse, couldn’t exercise as such but Chris would take me for little walks and I could hold onto his hand and use him as my stick (love that man). So I stuck I felt totally fed up, I know the weight drop had stopped, I kept on with the eating healthier as doing it didn’t actually bother me. I watched Chris shrink before my eyes and I was so happy for him if not a tincy bit jealous that his was visually amazing comparing to mine.
So I stepped on the scales reluctantly knowing in my heart that I hadn’t lost and may well of gained. Well all I can say is that yesterday was a beautiful day and the sun shone on me as to my amazement I had lost another 10lb.
So the story here is don’t give in, just because you don’t feel that you are getting anyway does not mean that you aren’t.
If you would like me to list what we are eating I will, just let me know.
