I’m in

Just started so from today am trying to get my 3 weeks under my belt. Where i live friday and sat are weekend days so those will be my s days. Starting at 12st 6lbs 5ft 2 F. If I see any improvement in those numbers it would be amazing but mainly I’m focussing on my habits for the next few weeks.

5 green
6 green
7 green
8 green
9 green
10 s day
11 s day
12 green
13 green
14 green
15 red (couldn’t sleep had one piece of thorntons choc, but rest of day was
perfect - not a massive screw up but struggled a bit today)
16 green
17 s day
18 s day
19 green
20 red (disappointing news today, have not handled well - reminder eating doesnt help!)
21 red
22 red
23red
24 s day
25 s day
26 red
27 red
28 red
29 red
30 red
31 s day

Suffered an early miscarriage this month (nothing to do with nos) but am taking myself in hand and will stop comfort eating. September will be a better month!

Ended at 12st 1.4lbs down from 12 6.4lbs so not bad considering.
