Day Twenty One... Weigh in

What a difference a day makes. I was pretty depressed yesterday but this morning I woke up happy and positive. I have no idea what caused the difference, but I'm happy my mood changed so dramatically. A few more days of that and I'd have strayed or maybe even given up.

It was good to be back at work and keeping my mind occupied. Unfortunately I couldn't walk home as I seem to have tweaked something in my knee and walking is uncomfortable. Therefore, I only made 9,736 steps, which is shorter than my 10,000 target, but I'm still happy with it.

I went to my weigh in and counselling tonight and for the first time I had company. There were three new faces. This should make things much more interesting. In all my previous session it's just been me on my own.

Anyway, time to cut to the chase. I lost another 6lbs this week. That brings the grand total to exactly 2 stones in 3 weeks.

I am happy with that weight loss. Men are supposed to lose 3 stones in 8 weeks. That's an average of 5.25lbs a week. So a weekly loss of 5 or 6 pounds is perfect.

Brilliant. Well done. Bet you're glad you didn't eat this weekend now?

Thanks for the stuff about France and Skye on my blog. Where were you in France? Franche Compte? We're looking at Auvergne although haven't settled on a region yet.

We love living in the country so don't think there'll be any major problems with that. Can't wait to not have to drive into town for work every day. Be able to spend more time in the garden and maybe get some animals!!

Just can't wait.

Thanks for reassuring me though - always nice to hear positive stuff.

I was in the Haute Savoie (in Rhone-Alps) area in a small town called Saint Genis-Pouilly. It was right next door to Geneva, Annecy and the Jura mountains. I loved every minute of it and still think about going back now and again.
