I’ve had some success so far this year. It’s been two months of 2015, and I have seen an 87kg on my scale 3 times already…. compare this to seeing an 87kg only once since October 2014.
I’m a small steps and small goals type of person, because I get overwhelmed quite quickly and easily. So, when I was at my highest weight last year, 91kg, I worked to see it drop to 90kg, then I swung between 91 and 90 for a few months, then began swinging between 89kg and 90kg for a lot of months last year… then it became a battle between 88kg and 89kg… now this year, I started off at 89kg (after I ONLY gained 1kg during Christmas), then have managed to basically stay in the 88kg zone.
Obviously, I now want to see the scale swinging between 87kg and 88kg… This month, February, the least I have weighed was 87.4kg last weekend, but I went back into the 88 this week.
Such small but definite progress is important for me to stay focused and believe I can do it.
I wrote about swimming to lose weight through out February, and I haven’t really been consistent. I only swam once last week… and only once this week.
But I have been walking home (30 minutes) everyday from work and I believe it has been helpful.
My eating has generally been good… I obviously have had mishaps… but no binging episodes, and I allow myself to enjoy that small chocolate or biscuit.
