At long last it would appear that all my hard work is finally paying off! I stood on the scales before work this morning to find that I am within spitting distance of being officially a stone lighter! Typically of me I had hoped that by now I would have lost the best part of a stone and a half in weight however, as Helen rightly pointed out I have only been training seriously since the 10th August, so actually my weight loss is pretty impressive even if I do say so myself!
This has not come easily! I have been putting in the miles on the treadmill between shifts as well as on my days off and I have sacrificed all of my favourite food for much healthier alternatives! I haven’t felt full for days! There is one food I have found particularly difficult to give up. My friends and family know me as the ‘curry king’ and I struggle to go a couple of days without a visit to the local Indian let alone a couple of weeks!
Our holiday is now only a few days away and I really can’t wait! Not only am I looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation but I will also be able to loosen the shackles a bit when it comes to eating and drinking! By no means do I want to undo all my hard work but I will be more than happy to return home the same weight as when I leave on Tuesday morning!
Only 3 more sleeps to go!!
