Week 117

0.6lbs loss!

Finally a move back in the right direction! Not quite as much as I'd have liked considering the internal battles I've been fighting this week, but although my eating has been nigh on perfect, activity levels have been negligible.

Unfortunately, weight gain or loss doesn't seem to reflect how much you battle with your cravings, only whether you give in to them or not. You can spend an entire week fighting every waking moment, or just glide through with barely a second thought: the result is to do with the outcome of the fight, not how hard it was.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 7.4lb - 175.4lbs
Body fat: 22.6%
Total Weight Loss: 99.6lbs

Well done sir, even the smallest of skirmishes count in the over all battle.

I like that thought. Very true. But you won this week, which is great - even if it's a smaller victory than you would have liked.

Nicely done! A loss is a loss is a loss. And your thought about battling cravings is quite profound. I've never really thought about it like that.

"Whether you give in to (your cravings)or not" is what matters. The way you put it makes the obvious profound. Not getting credit for the intensity of the battle seems soooo unfair.

Thanks for your support everyone.

It does seem unfair that you can struggle so damn hard all week and do really well, then have one night where it becomes all too much and you give in, and it undoes all the good work.

But then why should it be fair? Why should we expect it to be otherwise?

I wish I didn't hear my father's voice ringing in my ears from when I was a child and would moan "That's not fair!" and he would always always always reply "But life isn't fair Kim!"

To which I would usually mumble "yeah, but you don't have to make it worse..."

I just started on my own weight loss journey and I find it helpful to read others' blogs for inspiration. You've done amazingly well!
