Well weighed in last night and lost another 600 grams, so am very pleased with that. I havent exercised at all and now that I am in a routine with the food I am now ready to tackle the exercise. I am sure that again if I start off slowly then I can do it. At the moment I am only interested in walking - as it is free. My ideas are:
- Walk in the morning before work; or
- Get off the tram at an earlier stop and walk into work; or
- Walk at lunchtime; or
- Work after work.
I suppose mornings are my preferred option and really am going to try and do this, it would make my day easier and if I am free I can do a quick walk at lunchtime. Exercise will speed up the weight loss, which has been slow but then all those 0.3's etc do add up. I refuse to put pressure on myself to lose huge amounts each week. Somehow we have in our heads to lose 1kg each week - this is unrealistic and I am happy to have more constant losses which at the present are relatively easy. On the good news front I have found out that my leader Jean is coming back - I am thrilled as I do like her meetings and she is supportive and compassionate. I had a good talk to a lady called Kim who organises all the meetings and in particular the city meetings and she asked my opinion which was nice. I thought she needed to accommodate the 1 oclock lunch hours a bit more and it was nice that she valued my opinion. I did congratulate her on the room at the city meetings, it is fabulous with a bright blue wall with WW on it and set out fabulously with all the products. I am going to try and fit in another meeting other than my Wednesday meeting because I do enjoy them and find them inspirational. Well, the road is a long one and I think I have the patience to follow this through as when you have 50 kilos to lose it is not going to happen in 12 months with a loss of 1kg each week - that is unrealistic. One of the solicitors in our chambers sent me this photo with his darling son who just liked to cuddle me - I think that I am soft and cuddly. I nearly died when I saw the photo - the arms and back fat. Golly Gee but things will change and slowly and steady the weight will come off (hopefully those arms). Anyway, this week I want to try a new recipe that I can freeze as there are some days when you just can be bothered cooking. I actually look forward to the weeks ahead and love the new week, the anticipation of what I am going to lose this week.
