17 stone 13 pounds, that is a 5 pound weight loss for my first week. I am absolutely delighted. I cannot say it has been easy but I got to work on my vices. I cut out biscuits, alcohol and sweets immediately. The first couple of days were horrendous but every time I wanted one of my vices I picked up my worry beads. It got easier and in the last few days I can now say I have the cravings under control. My success is even sweeter as I have had an ear infection. This has meant I could not swim or workout as it was so sore and my balance was all over the place. I have never fallen over so many pieces of furniture!
The ear infection is still there but I shall start doing some gym work gradually increasing my exercise as I get fitter and have less to carry around. I think if I was to say what was the secret of my success it would be 90% will power, 10% worry beads. Although that is not a resounding impact for the worry beads that last 10% I needed might have made the difference whether I would have had that first biscuit, drink or sweet. Because I have abstained completely I know that giving into a vice now will be a huge failure to me. I have along way to go but I have made a start.
I am aware that the first week’s loss is always the biggest as I am mainly losing water but it is all weight lost and a great motivation.
