I have started soooooo many diets in my time, that to say this diet is going to be the one that works would almost certainly be met with lots of groans, eye rolling and 'yeah rights' from people who know me. So this time I have decided to keep it all low key... as in I am not telling friends and family I am on a 'diet', in fact i'm not even classing this as a diet... it's more a change in how I treat myself. I figure if I take better care of myself I will feel better about myself, and as a result be less likely to comfort eat.
I have made a journal that I will add to each week, on the flap of the front cover there is a reminder of the trigger that made me determined to succeed this time. In the past I have always set my sights on the end goal... which in my case is 27lbs away. I think this is always going to set you up to fail... as even losing a pound, which is good, still leaves you such a long way from the end goal, that it is easy to become demoralised. So this time I am setting myself mini targets that should be able to be achieved... my first target is to lose 6lbs to get a stacking set of cats eye inks. One of my end targets will be to get a BIA... so I have to work blimmin hard if i want to get my hands on one!!!
On the back of the first entry, there is a piccie of my in my undies which is such a horrific sight I will not share it with you... and my start weight and measurements... I knew that tape measure that came out of my christmas cracker would come in to good use!!
I am still eagerly awaiting a delivery from the US of 5 Scarlet Lime kits... they were shipped from San Francisco on the 14the December, but there is still no sign of them at this end:( Also waiting for some stamps from the US and no sign of them either.... all we got today was a flippin 7" record.... boooooooooooo!!!!
Got to go and do a boring food shop after lunch... all 4 of us are going, so there could well be a couple of fallings out along the way...LOL!!!
