Despite feeling very motivated and being on plan I put on a lb last week, this week. As a result I increased my super speed food intake at very meal and lost 3 lb this Saturday. Bringing me seriously close to my next stone award. I’m trying hard to not think about it. I have 2 hurdles this week: I am being electively admitted to hospital in Sheffield for a right heart Catheter and MRI and I need to not psych myself out by trying too hard to lose weight.

Being away from home means losing some control of my options of what I have to eat, however it also gives me the opportunity to use my choice power, so I will be looking up foods and going for the fresh fruit and veg option where possible. Plus on the positive side it’s only 2 days out of 7, although I will be on my weight loss plan for all 7 days, so I can tweak my syns for the week if I have to.

I am 1.5 lb away from my next stone award. I lose about 1.5-2lb a week on an average week so the next award is within reach, this is both enthusing and frightening. However, I REALLY want it! I have been hoping to get this award since my last one in July. Weight loss is a slow journey for me at present, but I have enough road to speed it up if I want to in the coming weeks. I am really hoping it all goes without a hitch and I am back at my local supermarket shopping for my Slimming world essentials by Wednesday afternoon.

This autumn I also need to re-establish my exercise plans as I do need to push myself for my Gold award in Body Magic. I have much to look forward to including Eid and Christmas and getting into lower dress size yet again will make it all the more special.
