Weight loss: Week 43

Another week, another weigh in and this week on the scales I saw a 2lb weight loss. That means what I put on last week is gone again.

I should be thrilled, but actually I’m more concerned. My weight is essentially yo-yoing. While the trend is most definitely downwards, it’s not a steady loss and it goes up as well as down regularly. Given that I’m trying to get healthy rather than slim, and all the news about how unhealthy yo-yo dieting is, I am maybe more concerned than I should be about my weight loss at the moment. I need to get more consistent and focused so I’m going down or maintaining every week, but it’s so hard!

Negatives have been shorter walks again and too much cake!

Our trip to IKEA resulted, naturally, in their meatballs & mash. I did overdo the food that day, I could have skipped the pudding, and I should have gone for 10 meatballs not 15.
At the expat Lunch Bunch there was no choice so I didn’t have to try to make healthy choices! It was yummy though, and I opted for quite a light pudding, although again I should really just not have had one at all.

I’m continuing to make a note of what I’m eating each day at the moment, I don’t think it’s making any difference to me at all right now, but maybe in time it will?

I have been thinking about stopping weighing in and blogging about my journey, giving myself a break from it. Some other people think it would be wise too, but I know if I do I will be totally unaccountable and pile all the weight back on again. I feel a bit stuck right now to be honest, like I can’t stop blogging and weighing in because I will go backwards, but I feel like I’m just seeing and sharing my failure by continuing. We’ll see what happens over the next few weeks.

    How about blogging about your week – what you’ve eaten (good & bad) exercise etc but not weigh in ? Or do a monthly weigh-in instead of weekly, so you get more of an overall picture?

      That’s an interesting idea, will give it some thought and decide what I think will work for me in the next week or so. Maybe a monthly weigh in would be better.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
