How can it have been 7 months already?
So this is me, ready for my run (ok I haven’t put my trainers on yet…)
The T-Shirt is XL. The tracksuit bottoms are size 14.
I have fallen out with the scales big time. I rarely weigh myself now but when I do it shows I am half a stone heavier than the lowest weight I reached.
So what do I see in these photo’s? I see a fat woman. I see all the overhanging “wobbly bits” that are still there. I see the fact that I can sort of hide the massive belly with clothes but that it is still definitely there.
I see that I am a million miles away from where I need to be at a size 10/12.
And right now, it feels unachievable. I feel like I have steadied off (and am working really hard at ignoring the voice in my head that’s telling me I am putting weight on again – it’s wrong!)
What I do know, is that the message in the slimpod around eating healthier, that seems to have worked so well for so many people, has totally passed me by.
I think I may know why. I just need to fix it. If I wasn’t such a muppet, someone on my Cognitive Hypnotherapy course would have been able to do it.
So what does my day look like for food these days.
Pre-brekkie: I run for 15-25 minutes in the morning Mon-Fri (been a bad month due to foot injury and chest cold)
Breakfast : Coffee and an innocent smoothie
Lunch: sandwich or something with 2 pieces of brown bread and cheese. Sometimes have a McD’s where I just have a McChicken sandwich
Snacks: Afternoon snacks may be a small packet of Dorito’s or a bowl of nuts. If I go out in the car I might have a handful of peanut M&M’s
Dinner: Small bowl of Slow cooker chilli, stew or something. When I have a Chinese takeaway on a Saturday night it will be chicken and sweetcorn soup and 2 out of a packet of spare ribs with no sauce. I have a kebab once a week. I buy a small donner and eat about 1/3 of it.
I never eat anything after dinner.
Add maybe 3-4 cups of coffee throughout the day and 2 cans of diet coke.
You can see it’s not that I eat a lot. Since I started Thinking Slimmer I just don’t have the desire to eat much. But it is definitely not a healthy and nutritious diet.
This is my next goal. I need to sort this out.
