Yay! Last Thursday the scales were kind to me and I'd lost another pound - making 5lbs in five days, four of the pounds that I'd gained and a little extra one for luck!
16st 8lb - 232lbs - BMI 38.6
(just two more pounds til I take some comparison photos!)
That makes a grand total of 30lbs since I started on this weightloss journey back in mid-January. I know my rate of loss has been much slower than for many other bandsters, and there have been moments when I wondered whether I had done the right thing when the weight seemed to be going nowhere fast, but right now it feels like I've found my sweet spot, and long may it last!
Is it just me though, or do you find yourself thinking 'Oh, I've only lost 30lbs' but when you'd lost, say, 20lbs and saw that Mrs X has lost 30lbs, you'd think 'WOW! 30lbs! I wish I could lose that much.' So, of course, now I've lost 30lbs, I'll be thinking to myself 'Ms Y has lost 40lbs, wouldn't it be sooooo great to lose that much' and 'Mr Z lost 30lbs in three months, why did it take me nearly five?'
But, quite honestly, right now I am SUPER chuffed to be weighing in at 232lbs (probably a LOT happier than I was when I weighed that much on the way up the scales!)
