I can’t believe how quickly I’ve managed to turn it back around after losing so little last week. I felt so annoyed at myself last week but it feels so good to be back on track.

The Weekend

This weekend I was a lot stricter than I have been over the last few weekends as my snacking was starting to get out of hand again. I only treated myself to a new M&M chocolate bar and a sugar-free energy drink. I know, not good but sugarfree energy drinks are actually ok on my current diet plan for now.

This Week

I’ve carried on being strict with myself throughout the week as well. I didn’t feel like it was doing too much for me for the first few days but It was definitely showing towards the end of the week.

I’ve been sticking to my planned diet all week. No extras what so ever unless the’re healthy options such as fruit. My water intake is back on track and I’ve limited myself to one can of Diet Coke a day. I planned to introduce lemon to my diet this week but wasn’t too successful. Apart from having it on salmon and eating it with my two-year-old son to watch his face crease up, I haven’t touched it.

This week I looked into whether you can trust BMI a had a look at mine. After this weeks weight loss mines 30.52 which puts me in the obese category which is a bit worrying. In a week or two, however, I will be out of that category and it’s not an exact science so I’m not too bothered by it.

It’s been a struggle to add a new meal every week but this week’s was the best one yet. My wife made Quorn Chicken Paella and it was amazing, so much so that it’s my meal of the week and we’re having it a second time tonight.

Next Week

I haven’t really got any big changes for next week. I’m going to keep plodding on with my diet and lose the weight as I am for the time being. My new diet has been a big adjustment so I don’t want to make too many changes too quickly and ruin it.

Next week is week 8 so I will have a new progress picture. I’m quite excited to see how it’ll compare to the last two after losing 20lbs and hopefully a few more by next week
