I'm so pleased it was a little cooler today. There is just something about the warm weather that makes me crave chilled wine. This is lovely but not awfully helpful when you are trying to get fit and slim!
I can report that as of this morning, the scales were sitting at 12 stone 4.8lb. Half a pounds down from yesterday, which is good. Its inching its way towards goal, and I am pleased. Its good to see progress.
Progress is addictive. When you start to able to see the changes in your own body, its the best feeling in the world. I can tell I am losing weight now, because I can get in jeans I've not worn for a while. I will know I've cracked it mind when I can get in the clothes I have never managed to get in. Then I will know I have reached the point where its all been worth while.
For now, I'm just pleased to be making progress. 9lbs from now is the lightest I have ever been in my adult life - 11 stone 9 pounds. 11.8lbs from now is my 10 week challenge goal - 11 stone 7lbs. Anything lower than that and this is new territory. The main aim being to reach 10 stone 7 pounds.
This week I have an added motivation - we are going to a wedding reception. This is a chance to dress up and I fully intend to do so! More on that later in the week!
Today was a good day for the diet. Not to hot, but pleasant. Lots of reasons to be motivated, and making progress on the scales. A good day :)
