Enough is enough

Sunday Scales: +1.6 lbs・Total Loss: 26.8 lbs. This gain is actually not as bad as I had expected. Despite last week’s efforts to meal-plan and get my head back into place that did not quite happen. While I did stick to most of my meal plan I also ate a lot of unplanned treats, snacked a lot and ate beyond my satiation level. What basically happened was that the good old last-supper mentality kicked in and for a couple of days I just stuffed myself because I knew I had to ‘get back on my diet’ and hence lose this ‘freedom to eat all my feelings’!

What goes down must go up!

Sunday Scales: +1.2 lbs・Total Loss: 28.4 lbs. Ordinarily this would be good news but not when it comes to the number on the scales!

Another big milestone reached

Sunday Scales: -4.2 lbs・Total Loss: 29.6 lbs・Reached milestones # 6&7. Nice loss on the scales this morning.

Sunday Scales: Getting back into the swing of things

Sunday Scales: -3.8 lbs・Total Loss: 25.4 lbs. Well, that was nice to see on the scales this morning. Not only have I recovered from the cruise gain (2.8 lbs) but lost an additional pound on top of that. I reckon this is also testimony to how much water weight we carry when we eat a lot of processed high salt, high sugar foods as was the case with a lot of the cruise meals. Getting back to a more basic diet of fresh and less processed foods definitely makes a difference.

20 lbs down: Five things I’ve learned during my first two months of successful Intuitive Dieting

Sunday Scales: -2.2 lbs・Total Loss: 22.8 lbs. Having Sunday be my official weigh-in day can be tricky because I tend to eat more at the weekends and there are more challenges when we go out for instance. Last night we went to a friend’s house for a barbecue and unlike other diets before I was not fretting it or worried about ‘blowing it’. I had a rough idea of what I was going to eat and otherwise just planned to have a good time with good friends. And that’s exactly what happened…
