Last week when I gave my update I was feeling demotivated and quite negative towards my weight loss process. I am so pleased to let you all know that this week has improved in a big way.
The first thing is that for the first time in a long time I made it through the week without anyone calling me fat. I did however get someone commenting on my weight. A lovely lady in the Wimpy in Laguna Mall called me over when I was walking past and told me I am looking great and she said she can see I have lost some weight. Thanks Elizma, you made my week!
I weighed myself today and I have gone down from 77.8kgs to 77.3kgs. Yes I know that ½kg is not a massive achievement but it is an improvement so I am proud of myself. I also measured my tummy and I have gone down from 106cm to 104cm so I have lost 2cm there. Another achievement that I am very pleased with!
This week I have also felt great physically so I can not only see an improvement, I can feel it too.
All of my goals for this last week were achieved, the biggest one being that I managed to change my mindset towards this challenge. I am once again feeling motivated and enthusiastic. The fact that I am losing weight helps a lot, but I do believe it was due mostly to the hypnosis for weight loss . I am going to make sure that I do some of that every now and then throughout this process to keep me on track.
Something interesting that I noticed this week is that since I started eating breakfast early every morning I am getting hungrier earlier in the day. When I was skipping meals I didn’t get hungry until late in the day. For this reason I am going to include a morning snack in my goals this week.
Here are my 3 goals for the next week:
- Eat a healthy morning snack every day at about 10am
- Increase my daily water intake to 2 litres a day
- Increase my weekly exercise to 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.
I had some questions on social media regarding the exercise, I am still doing this 32 minute cardio workout each time. I enjoy it and it is working well for me. I try out some more workouts soon but for now I am just sticking with what is working for me and getting myself into the habit of doing exercise regularly.
In case you are wondering about the snacks I am planning for this week it will be a handful of biltong and nuts, And yes I will be continuing with the goals I have achieved in previous weeks. These include eating a healthy breakfast every morning (yogurt, fruit and seeds), drinking 2 cups of green tea every day and eating salad with every supper.
I will catch up with you all next week Wednesday, I wish you all a great week.
