Hopped on the scales this morning - after the obligatory wee and shedding of clothes - feeling a bit smug. By my sneaky mid-week weigh on Sunday, I had lost 0.9kg and was feeling good about a decent loss this week. So, I am now fighting the urge to be disappointed when the scales showed that since Sunday morning I had managed to put on 0.4kg and my total weight loss for the week was 0.5kg.
I know.... I know that 0.5kg is a good loss and well within what is recommended as sustainable weight loss.
But, you know, I'm impatient. I want to be a lot less very very quickly. If there was a good weight loss fairy, I'd be happy for her to wave her magic little wand and just reduce me to healthy size in the blink of an eye.
Apparently, there's no such thing as a good weight loss fairy because I would have found her if there was. So it's back to plodding along with my good eating and my good exercising and remembering that I am fitter, stronger, smaller and a little bit more confident generally than I was 51/2 weeks ago. I must remember that I have already lost 6.3kg and now weigh 100.9kg.
Who knows, I may even be in normal sized font next week to celebrate a big milestone..... but I won't predict, preempt or jinx it - I will learn to be happy eating well and exercising well and take the weight loss as and when it comes. (sigh...)
