I can’t wait to update you so let’s get straight into this week’s report card:
What’s Erika done well this week?
- I’ve lost 3 lbs
- I’ve now lost more than 1/3 of my original body weight (takes into account the 21 lbs I lost prior to blogging). So, my weight has gone from 329 to 217 lbs
- I’ve now lost exactly 8 stone (i.e. 8 x 14 lbs)
- I’ve now fewer than 60 lbs to go until I hit my target weight
- I’ve been eating more in the past few days to make sure that I’m not undereating. Carbs are still down but protein is up 🙂
What could Erika improve on?
- Drink more water!
Erika’s next target(s):
- 1 lb until my BMI is in the 32s
- 8 lbs until I’m under 15 stone
- 18 lbs until I’m in Onederland (yes, I’ll be less than 200 lbs)
- 21 lbs until I’m no longer obese as I’ll be overweight
- To start wearing my jeans every day after finally being able to do up the button the other day. Another 7 lbs or so and I think I’ll feel much better in them.
I was thinking earlier that there are so many things that I’d love to be doing now that I’ve lost weight, such as going away on weekend trips and not have to worry about fitting in a plane seat. The only thing stopping me right now is Covid although it doesn’t stop me planning. But I guess what I’ve also reflected on is how I’ve still ‘lived’ during the past few years even when I was around 329 lbs. I still did an off-road driving experience, joined the police for a night shift, went to Disneyland, wandered around Paris on a day trip and so much more. You see, we can think “When I’m smaller….” or “When I’m lighter….” but we never know what’s around the corner and so, yes, whilst there are things we can still dream to do, live for today! You might need to go a bit slower or adapt your plans a bit if you’re not yet your ‘ideal’ size but, more than ever, embrace today!
I’ll be back later this week but, in the meantime, please feel free to share your weight loss successes, frustrations or whatever’s on your mind ❤
Love Erika xx
