Week 41: weigh in update = frustrated…


So I’ve gone from being really pleased with myself for resisting all the yummy food at the weekend and saying “no” to a pudding and really appreciative of all the lovely comments I’ve had about my recent photo to being absolutely gutted that this week I lost a measly 0.5lb. I’m 1.5lb short of my 4 stone total loss and being totally honest i’m gutted about it. I’ve got my hospital appointment on Thursday (which I know I have been harping on about for the last 6 months) and although I should be proud that I’ve lost 54.5lb since January 2011 I’m a bit annoyed with myself that I’ve not lost enough. I’m 7kg short of the target that the Doctor set me and I just wish I’d started WW sooner. I’m so frustrated with it all. But, I know there’s not much I can do about it so no point wasting energy on something I can’t change. Onwards and downwards I think is the mantra I need to remind myself of.

This week I’m going to get my bum to the gym, I’ll carry on with the walking and get shaking my booty at Zumba. I want that 4 stone goal hit next week so i’m going to pull out all the stops to make sure I get it!

    You should never be gutted at a loss however small – half a pound still represents a massive achievement. The trouble with setting yourself time specific goals (I’m going to lose x amount by y date) is that you can do everything right but your pesky body might just decide to be contrary, for all you read about it, I’m convinced that weight loss is not an exact science! Your overall achievement is fantastic, and I’m sure any doctor worth his salt is not going to quibble over a few pounds when you’ve lost over fifty.
