I'm feeling more than a little frustrated today. I weighed in this morning and lost 1.5lbs. Well, that's good I hear you say! And it is good, but I just think this is going to take forever!!! I mean I've got 70lbs to lose overall - and ok, I've kissed 16.5 of that good-bye already, but that still leaves over 50 to go!! 50 - that's such a massive number.
I think part of the problem is, when everything was going so well to start with, I set myself a little goal of being 15 st by the time I go to a friend's hen party at the end of the month - a target that seemed perfectly reasonable at the time. But now, with only one official weigh in to go before then, I realise I've set myself up for the first failure of my WW's career, as 3.5lbs left to lose in one week just doesn't seem feasible - stupid, stupid girl!!
Things haven't seemed so bad so far, I've had some steady losses, and I've seen some changes in myself and the way my clothes fit, but bloody hell, I've got such a flipping long way still to go. And I really don't want to fail this stupid little mini-goal I set myself - since I did set the damn thing now I feel like I've got to make it.
So, as I sit here eating my mid-morning snack of pineapple, I'm wondering how on earth I can drop 3.5 by next Monday .......oh god - I do make things complicated for myself sometimes!!!
