Right! Now I’m really getting somewhere!
Broken a plateau which really frustrated me for the much of February and this month to date.
Hovering between 21 and 22kg loss was not a joke and unfortunately my life is so crazy at this time that I had not posted here about it.
Stand by…….. drumroll…… 23.1kg down this morning!!! Whew what a great feeling – I’m on the downward path again. Decisively so.
Let me encourage you not to give up if you also experience no or minimal losses over an extended period – a few weeks in my case. Our bodies are not engines that we fuel and can then expect to perform to specification. Each and every one of us is very, very different and as we pay more attention to our health and bodies, we get to know what works and what does not.
I can honestly state that I did not panic and I did not think even for one split second about throwing in the towel. That option did not cross my mind.
So, what lead to the breakthrough? Two things only – portion control and eating right. In my case, as you know, ‘ eating right’ is a combination of my W-L plan, my plan devised by a dietician well versed in low GI/GL principles, ongoing discussions and shared info with my doctor Anna Hall and last but honestly not least my own research into the kind of nutrition best suited to slay the Metabolic Syndrome dragons.
Very bad grammar in the above paragraph but I am posting this nonetheless!! Or should I say I am nonetheless posting this? Eileen – get back to the subject at hand – you are fiddling again!
Please comment on this post or write to me personally if you are having similiar problems. A problem shared is a problem halved – most of the time anyway.
A real biggie is that I now weigh less than my husband – quite something that – as he is also now on his own journey which is a new development which I have yet to write about. That was another huge breakthrough in our little family.
Have a great day and a safe weekend.
Well done Ma! Amazing stuff…your resilience won through. :-)…now for the 25kg mark!
Yeah, well, I cannot lose face with you kids!!
What I did not say was that I had become a bit lax in what quantities I was consuming. Perhaps I can be forgiven for that as this Odyssey is a damn long trip!
