Having succeeded in doing three weeks prior to the Christmas period without feeling deprived or headachey etc. I have since managed to completely undo any good I had achieved. Perhaps starting just before Christmas was setting myself up for failure, but Heigh-ho with both mine and Hubby's birthdays out of the way for another year, I can return to plan without any celebrations in the way to throw me off course.
So I got on the scales this morning and I am up to 12 stone 13 lbs, but at least I did not go over 13 stone mark.
My aim is to lose at least one stone by 1st April, that gives me 12 weeks, I think it is doable. I will then reassess. I am still going to go back to Boots and do both weight and fat monitoring on the 4th February. This is a week later than I originally intended but I am a week later starting back on the plan and I think I need at least 4 weeks to reduce both weight and fat content of my body. I am going to follow the WW Pro Points plan as I find this is the easiest one to follow when eating out etc.
I am also going to return to my 10,000 + steps a day, which I did do bar from Christmas week.
