Week 16 saw me munching a lot of Toulousian food but doing a huge amount of walking too. I did one fast day before I went on my holibobs but didn’t weigh in at all that week as I was away. My guess is that I lost a bit because week 17 has seen 0 fast days and a lot of chocolate. In fact, it has seen me give up.
I have taken the decision to quit the diet, for the time being, while I focus on my cours de code. Tomorrow’s blog post will explain in more detail, but basically the stress I am currently under is just too much and I don’t have the strength to say no to food right now.
I feel awful about giving up, not least because I’m still very unhappy with my body, but at least it’s better than it was and I can wear more of my clothes now.
I sincerely hope that I don’t put everything I’ve lost back on, though I sense it may happen, and probably quickly. But I have to focus on my mental health and my driving theory right now, once that’s done hopefully I’ll feel better and can kick start the diet and get back in shape.
Start weight: 16 stone
Last week’s weight: 14 stone 12 lbs
Today’s weight: 14 stone 10 lbs
What I’ve learnt this week: Diet is not as important as emotional health.
