Here's what I realised looking back at my tracker:
- a month ago, I got down to 12st 4.8lbs after 4 weeks of conscientious eating.
- at the beginning of that run of conscientious eating, I had a frustrating couple of weeks when the scales only moved by tiny increments, despite the effort I was putting in, and we all concluded (yet again) that these things take a while to show up on the scale.
- in the past 4 weeks, I've eaten badly, and gotten away with it at the scale in a pretty light fashion - any one else thinking "yeah, but it takes a while to show up, dumbass"?.
So continuing that pattern - this week will be a good one. Limit the silly weekend excesses. Get in the exercise. Aim for a clean week on my tracker. I've got two really clean days of eating behind me, since my H-M Revelation of Fear. It's a good place to start from.
And to finish on a positive note - I may have gained this week, but last night's 5k run shaved another 15 seconds off my pace per mile, and it felt pretty strong. And I didn't eat the entire contents of the fridge when I got home whilst I waited for my dinner to cook. Good stuff :-)
