Last week: 76.5 kilos (168.3 lbs)
Today: 76.7 kilos (168.7 lbs)
Loss: +0.2 kilos (0.4 lbs)
Total: 10.8 kilos (23.7 lbs)
I knew this week would be the straw that broke the camels back and I wouldn't be able to escape a gain on the scales. My weekend was just non-stop eating and drinking from Friday night to Sunday night. In my defense there was a lot going on and I didn't eat or drink anything different from anyone else... which is a sucky defense because you really can't lose weight by eating and drinking like everyone else (at least not my friends and family anyway!).
So I have lost less than 1 kilo in the last month now. On the one hand I am disappointed at myself for such a poor loss, but on the other hand I am pleased with myself that I haven't gained weight while I have been letting loose a bit. I guess it would be fine if I was in maintenance, but I am still determined to get this final 15 kilos off before my body lift surgery so now is not the time to be letting loose.
It is exactly 2 months and 1 day until my body lift surgery and I have 4.2 kilos to lose to meet my goals. It doesn't sound that difficult, but I have social events on every weekend until then and I am not good at saying no to a glass of wine... or to carbs when I have had a few drinks!
I've had a pretty quiet 12 months while I have dealt with my anxiety and depression and a lot of family issues too. Now that I am dealing with those issues, and I have managed to shift some weight off, I am really enjoying getting out and doing new things and being social again. I just have to find a way to have my cake and eat it too!
