Don’t be disheartened……….

First let me refer back to a post I did in February:
True, False, or Misunderstood

Over the next few days I shall be doing a series of posts about our final trip on the boat, but this one is for all you dieters out there feeling despondent for putting on weight or disheartened for not losing anything despite your hard efforts.
You can make up your own mind on the above issue afterwards, but in short:

I weighed myself before we set off on Tuesday 18th April.
I have walked miles every day.
I have exercised every day, using muscles I never knew I had.
We have eaten sensibly as regards portion control, little in the way of sweet stuff (no shops) and slept well most nights.

I weighed myself again this morning, Thursday 27th April, and have put on two pounds.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. This is applicable to any sort of goal miss for someone who is a self confessed perfectionist… and consciously aware of my own failure before anyone else is. Keep on keeping on.

    Assuming you have not overlooked anything, then I believe the stress of your immediate future could be the culprit. It is my understanding that in stress conditions, the body metabolizes food differently and could well be storing up fat as a perceived survival function. I wouldn’t put any importance on it, but rather get your new life direction on track… and then see how the following months look on the scales! πŸ™‚
