On a lot of diets I have lost quite a bit of weight then stop. No matter what I do I cannot shift any more. Thought I had reached that point last week.
The problem was I travelled with work. When I travel for pleasure I walk, a lot. Sight see and get to know the place I am visiting. When I travel for work I either walk all the time, visiting desk to desk (so not far walking but standing all day) or I am in the office sitting on my bum all day, not a lot of exercise happening.
Then dinner comes around and if I am travelling with colleagues we all eat together. Problem is hotels do not serve healthy food, no matter how much they say they can accommodate you, they don’t, at all. I stay in a 4 star hotel in Edinburgh, a very nice hotel, but they could not get 0% fat yoghurt in, didn’t have skim milk and used oil cooking everything.
My first week there at the end of June killed me. I stuck to my diet, no cheating, not once! Everyone around me drank alcohol, had lovely food, I stuck to my diet. Guess what happened, I did not lose even a point of a kilo.
So week 2 in Edinburgh was a little different. I ate out of the hotel more, cheated but not a lot, had 2 pieces of asparagus on a protein day. Had a bit of bread with my poached eggs during breakfast, but no alcohol or desert.
I also started doing some aerobics videos that I have had for years, very hard. didn’t weight myself when I got home thursday, just kept doing the videos and doing the diet. Today I weighed myself and from the 108.2 I was over a week ago I am now 106.2 kg.
