My Weight Loss Journey

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 9

Week 9

Summary

So sorry for the late post this week, but I’ve got bad news and good news. The good news is that my waist is shrinking and that my weight keeps going down.

The bad news is that my weight goes up on Mondays and Tuesdays and I, again, didn’t hit my aimed weight for this week. I completely forgot it was Mothers’ Day last Sunday and was given a box of chocolates and a box of licorice (as that’s the thing you give your mother who’s on a diet). My weight has been below the 76kg during the rest of the week for over two weeks now, but I can’t seem to keep it low on Tuesdays. Very frustrating.

The worst news, though, is that I’ve hit that point where I’m fed up with this dieting. I crave cookies, desserts, and treats. And I eat them. They say you make things a habit after three months, but I never seem to make it to three months. I’ll try and keep on going as my waistline and weight keep being a positive reminder I’m doing the right thing, but exercising is a hit and miss at the moment.

Results

Like I said, my weight was not what I wanted it to be on Tuesday as it was 76.1kg (12 stone). Today it’s 75.5kg (11.89 stone) again. WTF?! It’s as if it continually teases me on purpose. I’m very tempted to make Thursdays my weigh-in day, but I’m not a quitter 🙂 . My belt has definitely moved into another notch and have only one left. It measured 81cm (31.8 inches) I’ll get there!

I have noted these last weeks that I hold my right shoulder higher than my left. No idea why. Must have something to do with my right shoulder being tighter and always causing me problems. That said, my left shoulder joint is definitely looser than the right as it keeps ‘popping’ when I do exercises. I also appear to lean more forward on the photo of W0. Was my belly that heavy? 🙂

As I’m looking for ways to keep myself motivated, I ‘shadowed’ my current image over the one from week 2 (where I wear the same bra). The difference is minimal, but I’m definitely shrinking, most notably on the front. Note my hair has also grown 🙂 .

Btw, to minimalize the differences in the image taken, I measure the distance from the top of my shoulder to the bottom of my heel.

All in all, I’m not doing badly. I’m just struggling with eating healthy and doing my exercises at the moment. I hope these images give me enough boost to keep on going. I’ll also be trying some new yoga exercises to spice it up. I’ll persevere!
