Not sure what happened this week. And I was so confident that I had the numbers all worked out to get me a loss of just over a kg. My average kJ for the week was 8430 (which was a little over target); there were a couple high days and a couple of lower days but I didn’t do anything silly on the lower days like drop out a meal. And I exercised 7 days in the week for an average of 47 minutes which worked out to be about 5 and a half hours over the week.
This weeks stats:
Start weight: 140.9kg (310 lbs)
Current weight: 114.4kg (251.7 lbs)
This weeks loss: 2.7kg (6 lbs)
Total loss: 26.5kg (58.3 lbs)
Yep, a 2.7 kg loss.
On my walk this morning I went through the last week trying to find a reason. I have been drinking more green tea, in the last 4 days I had control of all my meals and they were all really good ones, hormones, I had been retaining water but I am not anymore, I was really focussed and my mindset helped me lose weight. And I decided I needed to remember some facts. My blood results indicate that I am doing really well. There is nothing out of whack with my sugar, fats or hormones. I eat a balanced diet with 2-3 pieces of fruit, 3-4 serves of low fat dairy, nuts, 4 serves of vegetables. I get enough fibre. I have slightly more protein and less carb then some people would like but it is not extreme and I know that my kidneys are coping with the protein levels. When you look at where the % energy comes from in an average day it is a well structured diet. And I am not doing an extreme amount of exercise.
About 6 weeks ago I gave myself permission to find my own way on this journey. And I had to reaffirm that today. I can’t explain the large weight loss this week. But I know I am eating well and eating sensibly. I am exercising well and sensibly. I am committed. My food and exercise fits in with my day to day life as it is at the moment. I just need to keep being consistent and I will find my way.
So, I accept the loss! Woohoo! I have now lost 26.5 kg. And that is amazing. I am now less than 115 kg! When I was 140 kg, I could not imagine being at a weight less than 115. It makes 110 seem so close and 110 is close to 100! I am so proud of how far I have come and that I have a good, strong plan to keep me going.
