Thank you for the comments and encouragement, everyone.
Tuesday, Weds, Thurs and Fri were all successes - a green week apart from Monday. I am especially proud because it has been half term and I find it more difficult to follow No S when I am out of my normal routine. We have had days out, eaten out a lot and I haven't snacked or eaten sweets. There has been some virtual plating at times, but not once have I said any of the following things:
It's the holidays, it doesn't matter
I deserve a treat on holiday
I'll start again next week
I haven't followed the rules to the letter therefore I will eat everything in sight.
At the end of May, my average weight is 2.45lbs less than in April. Not a huge weight loss, but I had a lot of red days in May! I am very pleased that I didn't walk away and ended the month on some green days.
I also bought trousers in a smaller size! Since March I have been making sure I meet my move/exercise goal set by my watch every day. Most of this is walking for about 30 minutes after work. My husband and I go together, so it's a nice way of catching up after a day at work - and it is definitely paying off. I can walk further and faster, and I know my thighs are smaller - as shown by the new trousers!
Here's to a green June and practising for Carnegie Hall, or the Royal Albert Hall, to give it a British twist
Hurrah! Smaller trousers and increased fitness! Lots to celebrate there. Those diet ‘phrases’ you mentioned no longer have a place in my life, either. It feels great, like operating from a different place in my head!
Great to hear you’re doing so well. I think that’s a good rate of weight loss, btw - we’re programmed to think that 2lb a week is ‘sensible’ and ‘safe’, but for many of us, 2lb a month is more like it. For me it’s been more like one and a half pounds a month, but it doesn’t half add up over time!
