So far it's gone really well. According to my scales (and of course there is no doubt that the scales at the pharmacy will be different) I am now 180.2lbs which means I've lost nearly 7lbs in 5 days. This is good going.
However, I have found today a real struggle. I think because I woke up so late that by the time it was 11am I hadn't even had a shake or any water. I had 1 shake, drank a litre of water and then when I went to the shop for food for my daughter's visit tomorrow I bought some frankfurters and ate them. I figure that if I'm really struggling rather than struggle and feel shitty I will have a small break, deal with the craving, and then get back into a good frame of mind.
I have my stripey dress hanging up on my door to inspire me each morning I wake up and I'll just carry on as I have been. Drink more water today and maybe a shake later and then back to it with a vengence tomorrow.
Not letting the bad times ruin the good.
