DietBlog: I’m back on track! What a difference a week makes. Last week I was tired and depressed; this week I’m 1.2kg lighter and a hundred times more optimistic. That brings me back down to 78.5kg, erasing two-thirds of what I gained over the Easter/Garberick holiday. Sweet. And I actually did it without much exercise! I’m still trying to rest the hamstring as much as possible before this Sunday’s run, so I’ve really only had a couple short jogs and that long walk last weekend. Really, it was just watching my food and religiously tracking my Points. I also have to constantly remind myself that it’s OKAY to be a little bit hungry. I don’t have to stuff myself every time I eat. Now I only have 3.5kg left to go!
And on a related note, my size 14 pants have been feeling a little loose. I wasn’t sure if it was due to weight loss though, or them just naturally loosening up from being worn. So I went into Esprit the other night to try on some new ones. Every size 14 I tried on was pretty roomy! I even tried on some 12s and, while I did get them zipped and buttoned, they were a little too, uh, bootylicious for my liking. But I have a feeling that 12 is where I’m eventually going to end up. That’s an unexpected bonus!
