17 stone 10 pounds – A loss of three pounds this week and a relief after last weeks stand still. I have stuck with my abstentions and no sweets biscuits or alcohol have passed my lips, using worry beads to replace them. I am missing the biscuits and sweets, the alcohol has been the easiest. We have a tradition in our house that when my wife is out in the evening dad has “special time” with his boys and part of that is to have access to dad’s sweeties tin, a converted pedal bin. My worry beads have to work overtime during these sessions as the room is filled with the aroma of sweet confectionary. The worry beads also serve as a visual to the boys that dad is trying to do without the sweets.
All the hard times are worth it when this morning I pulled up a fresh, crusty pair of jeans and I did not have to wrestle my body in to them. The diet is definitely working as regards changing my size and that is far more important than what a set of scale tell me. I have at last started back at the gym. This week includes two trips to the gym. It is hard work having not been for some considerable time but I know this can only get easier. Also adding the exercise into my stricter food consumption should mean good weight loss and inches lost.
More next week and hopefully another good weight loss.
