Well as it happens I have maintained being strong and determined, I have had a very good weekend in more ways than one.. Firstly my eating habits are staying healthy and I have no cravings for chocolate/sweets/crisps etc & I am now on day 11 of not even touching anything of the sort. I have been at my partners and once again he has been hugely supportive cooking for me/preparing my food and telling me how amazingly strong I am being. I think its actually made us closer. We did go out for some food (all healthy as can be when choosing off a menu) as we were out all day Saturday walking and exploring Liverpool museums and the Christmas markets (yes, I refused to eat anything from them).
The other factor of my good weekend.. I weighed myself on my partners scales as his are apparently more accurate but when I stepped on them I did start to question it. As I stepped on the numbers flashed at 18st 0.5lbs; if these are accurate I have actually lost 12.5lbs in 10 or so days. It made me feel very good and motivated to see a difference.
I’m still taking the orlistat tablets religiously after every meal and still so far so good, no accidents or anything people keep warning me of but then again why should there be when i’m not eating junk.
This week it’s my birthday (Sunday 8th) I have a Christmas do on the 7th, my birthday meal on the 8th but I am not going to let this stop me in reaching my Christmas goal of 1 stone. I will be making another appointment at the doctors for a couple of weeks time before Christmas, when I get weighed there I am using them as my official weigh in’s. They will only be monthly but hopefully the weight will always be going in the right direction from now on.
