Am Finally relaxing

Well I'm just about to start week 8 of Management and I'm finally beginning to relax around food.

Having maintained my weight for this time I no longer get panicky what I put in my mouth.

I have learnt to adjust with ease if I enjoy a meal out with wine, or other celebration times, if I over indulge then I can quite happily enjoy healthier options the next day.

I dont weigh myself every morning now, only twice a week.

I also realise not to become complacent.

I cannot express how important it is to to see management through.

I have learnt an incredible amount about myself over the past 15 weeks. I love the new me, the new size 8 clothes. I have even stopped getting annoyed with people who say I look gaunt, need to put a little weight on etc. They have the problem not me!

And I smile to myself everytime I'm in the newsagents with all the magazine front covers 'Lose a stone/drop a dress size for christmas!

Cheers everyone!

wow - that's an amazing result in such a short time. You must be SO proud of yourself. I have a question for you - have you maintained the same weight every week or have you fluctuated up and down - and if so, by how much each week? I just started management on Saturday and am feeling a little panicky! (as everyone does at the beginning)

Hi pussycat,

firstly thanks to all for all your kind words.

Basically it is a scary time starting management and eating, but you will adjust.

below is my weekly weigh ins from week 1 to up to tonights weigh in. I start week 8 tomorrow, as you can see, I havent fluctuated much at all, mostly lost 1lb weekly or with a slight gain of a 1lb apart from the first week of 3lbs.

Good luck hun xx

Thanks Sun. I didnt read your weekly weigh ins previously - even though they were clearly there! oops. you have done so brilliantly you're an inspiration. I really hope I can lose a few more pounds in management just to give myself the buffer I need coming into Xmas. Having said that, I'm very happy with my weight now so if I really can maintain within a couple of pounds either way I'd be very happy.

And you're right - I also feel a warm glow when I see the 'lose a dress size for Xmas' articles. For the first time in my adult life (I'm 40 now), I have a BMI of under 25 and I'm a size 10. You can't beat that feeling!

It sounds like you have really cracked it there hun, sounds corny but I am so proud of you.
And I know exactly what you mean about the "lose a stone for Christmas" articles in magazines - they make me smile everytime that for once, it doesn't make me feel like saying.. "lose a stone, how about lose 8 stone grumble grumble grumble!" It is such a new feeling to finally feel good about myself.
Thanks so much for sharing your success.
Love Laura
