Weight loss: Week 18

This week I’ve maintained again…I’m obviously pleased it’s not a gain, which I really deserved after what I’ve eaten this week, but I’m somewhat frustrated by myself and my weight loss lately.

Autumn Avi 2015 RightBasically I’ve totally lost my mojo and focus when it comes to losing weight and I’m struggling to find it again. This past week we ate out twice, I know that needn’t be a big issue if I make smart choices, but with it being a treat I do let myself indulge. I also drank to excess twice, once to celebrate Samhain though, so I’m going to try really hard to restrict the alcohol this coming week, I’m getting in to bad habits with it and that needs to change. I’ve also snacked on crisps a few times this week, I’ve been rather peckish more than usual, I’m going to put it down to it being that time of the month and hope that once that’s over the munchies will be too!

So yes, it’s not been a great week food and drink wise and I’m not feeling especially driven to fix it yet again. I guess I just have to hope that I can get back in control of my food intake again and slowly get back on track. I think part of the loss of determination is the realisation at just how far I still have to go. I’ve said before that, for me, it’s a life journey, there is no set destination or ‘perfect’ weight for me but that in itself could be part of the problem. Maybe I need a goal to give me something to aim for? We’ll see!

    It’s discouraging when you maintain or gain – I’ve been on a plateau for a whole month and I noticed that I was starting to be less carefull/motivated towards the end because the results weren’t there to boost me on – but as you said, it’s a lifestyle choice, not a quick fix, so the odd treat/alcohol-fuelled evening are all par for the course. Try aiming for a mini-goal – maybe lose 5kg by Christmas or get into a pair of jeans that are a bit tight – so you have something to spur you on? I find reading about everyone’s losses week by week spurs me on too – if they can do it, so can I !! lol
