I toddled on down to Boots today for my weekly weigh in,hoping for a 1 or 2 lb loss,and also to hopefully not bump into my boss,as she just lives down the street and I called in sick for today.Hopped on the scales,and imagine my shock when the scales reported a 4 POUND LOSS!!!!! 4 POUNDS!!!!!!!!!! That's 8 lb's in 3 weeks!!!!!
I actually jumped off and weighed myself again as I couldn't quite believe it.I know a lot of it's probably due to being ill,but I've also had 2 decadent dinner's out this week - starters and mains (birthday dinners for my wee sister) and next to no exercise,besides all the manual handling we do at work and a half an hour walk.
I'm stoked!!!!! I know this sort of weight loss won't continue,hell,I'm happy with a pound or 2 a week,but it's just a great boost mentally and like the Scotsman says,'That's even without exercise!'
I'm feeling a lot better - thank you so much for everyones good wishes.Still quite chesty though,so exercise is a no go for the next few days,but I'm hoping to get back into my DVD's by the weekend or so.I'm really itching to exercise,as while I'm happy with my eating habits being under control,I really want,no,need to get my fitness and asthma improved.
Oh,and I've managed to sucker my sister into walking the Glasgow 5K Race For Life with me in June.it will give me something to aim for,and kick my booty into walking to and from work and around the gorgeous and huge park I have on my doorstep.I've always wanted to do this,for both emotional and physical reasons,but never had the guts,fitness or company to do it.Who knows,by next years I may actually be able to jog it?!?!
