Yes, it's been a few weeks since I did a diet update *cough* and here I am again, starting at the beginning because alas, when I fell off the wagon I never managed to get myself back on it again and so, the first two weeks of pain and torture were completely in vain as I am back to my start weight (actually I am at slightly more, but I have just literally eaten a huge roast dinner so probably not the best time to weigh myself, however I'll be consistent - Sunday night is the new Saturday morning).
I bought some lovely new clothes for summer today - dresses and vest tops that really don't work with a paunch so this has spurred me on. I'm not one of those people that can size up, if I need a bigger size it's means I've been too piggy so my new clothes are my motivation. I want to be able to wear them on our break to Suffolk in May because the weather is going to glorious and I want to look fabulous, so that's my aim. I reckon 2lb a week would do it.
I have to do something about it so I am starting back again this week with a vengeance but what should make it slightly easier is that Mr M is joining me on the diet this time. This means I don't have to cook three different dinners and will make evening meals easier.
The snag is this time around I am not going to really be able to do much exercise due to my upcoming knee surgery. I am basically going to be out of exercising action for around 4-6 weeks, maybe longer depending on how the lateral release pans out. I've just under two weeks until the surgery so I will try and get a good bit of exercise in before then. In the meantime if anyone has any ideas of exercise I can have whilst recovering from knee surgery do let me know!
So here are the stats
Start Weight: 9st 1.5lb
Waist: 31 inches
Hips: 37 inches
Thigh: 20 inches
Upper arm: 12 inches
Number of chins: Several
Goal Weight: 7st 12lb
I'll be honest, I'm not looking forward to it, and I also have a pre-planned event at Pizza Express this week to get through, however I am determined this time I will lose the podge! Hoping for a 2lb weight loss by next Sunday so watch this space.
love & kisses
