By some miracle the past two weeks have no made a blind bit of difference and I maintained my first week loss of 3lbs. I have no idea how this happened but I was relieved. The feeling of dread as I waited to be weighed was huge and I hated it, I even asked the lady not to tell me my gain and just write it down and let me look after. But let's rewind to the beginning of these last two weeks.
The day of my first weigh in I started to feel very achy and I knew I was coming down with a cold, the next day it hit and from the Thursday I couldn't breathe through my nose, was all light headed and shivery and just generally ill. As I couldn't taste anything I didn't really want to eat anything and I know I didn't eat enough even though I still tried to make "slimming world" choices. I didn't get to group that week as I explained in the last post so I don't know how that week affected me.
The following week was "star week" which was just horrendous, whilst I didn't go mental with the food I did eat 4 cupcakes for my birthday (over 4 days!) and because I was in so much pain I couldn't go to the gym. Two weeks with no gym annoyed me because I was just getting into running and now it's so hard to get back into it, especially as this next week in work is going to be the busiest I think I will ever experience so that leaves me with little or no time in the gym.
All in all a pretty lame two weeks, hopefully things will start dropping off especially as my medication is pretty much responsible for the weight gain and I have made moves to come off them.
