Welcome to the Sixteenth post of a continuing series of posts called Wednesday Weigh Day. These posts will be a tracker for my progress through weight loss, hopefully, and a way to share my journey, and some of my recipes.
This week has had many challenges with my depression and workload, my wife has also been extremely busy with work. I spent most of this week either emotionally eating, making poor choices out of exhaustion and lack of care, or indulging myself in an effort to feel better. This has seen the first increase in weight since this journey started.
Weight at Start: 131.7kg
Weight Today: 118.3kg
Weight Loss this Week: +1.3kg
Total Weight Loss: 13.4kg
Amount till Goal Weight: 23.3kg
Due to this weeks poor choices I haven’t made any new and amazing recipes to share with everyone, I am endeavouring to make better choices this week as I cannot afford to continue to gain weight and wind up where I started from or worse.
My emotional eating has so far cost me 2.3kg. As I continue to gain weight, instead of doing it, my brain now cycles the negative self talk, with name calling, derogatory comments, and generally making me feel worse, which leads to more bigne eating and poor choices.
I thank every one for their support through this journey, it has been a lot harder than I anticipated, with more lows in mood than I expected. If nothing else it goes to show that I am just human and make mistakes along the way.
