Hey Ben, Oh yes, I forgot you were having to leave CD! Hows it going with better choice? Sounds irresistible haha Good luck with your loss this week!
The board is so quiet that we've all just clustered here to entertain eachother lol
Still don't know what i've lost - scaleless - so will measure again on Monday if they're still not gonna do weigh ins cause of the virus chaos. Still on plan. Had to turn over and seed my front garden lawn yesterday which was probably a bit more exertion than I should have done and was a bit hungrier but alright today. Can feel my body changing already, and my skin feels better. Most noticeable thing is somehow my centre of gravity has shifted enough that my continuous lower back pain is improved a bit. I think of everything, drinking seven million pints of water has led to a vast improvement in multiple ways, which is always nice. Last night I stayed up later and I think I would have probably ordered a big takeaway if I wasn't on the diet, so I noticed that habit trying to rise out of boredom. So far i've learned/noticed how much excess food I ate from daughters leftovers and picking, from eating when bored or stressed, from eating badly due to low energy to make a decent meal, waiting too long to eat and getting too hungry and indulging when daughter is sleeping 'cause i deserve the reward' when shes finally asleep and I survived the day... however its not much of a reward to gorge, gain weight and put strain on my body. Every time I see my reflection I am trying to shower my body in gratitude - for giving me my daughter, for giving me life and my experiences and for remaining pretty healthy considering how badly I treat it - and it helps me to appreciate where I am rather than wishing the weight and inches would fall off so then I could like myself.
Well I had a chicken and blackbean meal last night which was nice -I also bought these 90kal fibre bars when the were half price in my online shop so I am having one of those as as a snack in the evening. I had muesli this morning - it's just nice not having to have the shakes every day. They say a change is as good as a rest.
I also have converted my weight loss from kgs into stones/lbs to see how I am doing. If I lose 4 more pounds, I am going to try and see if my slim fit lovely work shirts fit. They cost £25 each and I have 3 still in the original packaging unopened. They are beautiful and I know it will do me the world of good if they fit again. I like shopping at Gant, if you know it. It's kind of nautical themed but I love their colours. I have trousers from them which are orange/green/salmon/sky blue etc so they stand out, but at the moment, don't fit (they will do though!)
I hate quoting massive posts but there are so many positive things in this FFF (I'm just called you that from now on, too much typing out otherwise!) that I felt I had to.
1. Scaleless - Is that actually
2. Drinking 7 million pints of water? I told
you to aim for 8! Must do better. But seriously, with you all having to stay at home, I know one reason I don't drink as much when I am at work is that I cannot easily nip to the toilet (due to my job) but you can and use your own toilet.
There's nothing like your own toilet is there.
3. I love your last few sentences. Quite eye catching. Recognising that you yourself have put your body through this torture and basically, if I can be blunt, sabotaged it (remember I have too so I'm not preaching!) and now facing up to the consequences. When you are feeling a little low, come on here and send us a message and we are quite good at regularly posting now. I make a point of logging on every day to see what I can contribute to the discussion (when it gets to 'women's things' though you are on your own, (Blubell and steampunk can help you with that!). But yes, give thanks for having a wonderful daughter, staying pretty healthy etc. when I start to lose weight I start thinking of little percentages going down in my head (e.g. risk of this condition is reducing, risk of this is slightly lower etc.)
Oh and yes we are definitely
trying to entertain each other!
