It was weigh-in this morning and I lost 5.5lbs and gained back this little beauty:
I think I have lost a total of 11st 3.5lbs now…so I still have a very long way to go but am thrilled with my recent progress.
Since working with Alex I have shifted 3st 2lbs – in just 12 weeks. I am looking forward to seeing where I am in another 12 weeks…and I have a goal for my holiday in October and then another goal for Christmas. I like goals!
So I used the word ‘thrilled’ earlier…but that’s probably not the right word. I am thrilled in an understated way! I am keen to recognise my progress but am also realistic enough to recognise that I have a long, long way to go yet.
I reckon this picture sums shit up:
There have been periods in my weight loss history when the path I followed was very linear and I seemingly had no issues. Then along came 2015 and I fucked up royally! My weight loss graph looked like a rollercoaster and it felt like I would never get off it.
So I am cautiously optimistic.
It feels like I am getting things back under control.
I am not one to count my chickens though. In fact I was discussing today the way in which we – I – run scenarios through in my head. You will have done this too. Played out a conversation and the way it’s going to go before you actually start talking. Then the conversation finishes and you realise that it never quite went the way you had planned it.
This is where I am at odds with myself at times. I like to set goals…but the way in which those goals are achieved is sometimes different from how I plan them. Some things can be planned…other things just happen. I think I am going to let life roll along a little.
Following a mind mushing coaching session with Alex today – that gave me a lot to think about – I have decided on some stuff that I am going to let go, some stuff that I am going to deal with, and I am trying to make a little more time to do the things that I enjoy.
I fear that I am going to start rambling now – so I am off to look at the stuff I am going to deal with – wish me luck!
Before I go though – I have to ask a question. Why is it that there are some people in life that can seemingly wrap people around their little fingers…and to all intents and purposes seem lovely…yet you can see through them and know that they are a cunt?!
On that delightful thinking point, I am off!
Thank you for reading,
P.S. If you fancy working with Alex then you better be quick – his online programme starts on Monday!
Oooh – and todays food looked like this:
