So I mentioned this briefly on my last mish mash emotional wreck post but here are the official stats:
Since my last weigh in 10 days ago I have lost 7lbs so a total loss of 57lbs since I embarked on this life changing expedition in April. In the UK that’s 4st 1lb and for those folk who measure in kilos its about 26kgs. The gory details are here: Mich’s Stats
So Tracey (my visualisation of the first 140lbs of my weight loss, symbolising the extra person I’m carrying around with me) is another chunk missing 😀 Look at her disappearing 8/20 chunks gone and never to return:
If you’ve got a lot to lose and are thinking this is a bit slow it’s because I’m doing it in a healthy way, I have blips, I eat tons and I might not be shedding dozens of pounds a week but I’m so much more healthy and my body is functioning so much better physically, emotionally and mentally. Everyone does diets their way and I’ve tried every way but this is the healthy way, the best way for me to sustain, this is not a quick fix it is a new lifestyle and has to be or else that weight will come piling back on just like it has so many times before. This is different, this is a mental, emotional and physical assault on my issues with food and a total change of habit. It’s working.
