So, how did Week 1 go? Surprisingly well. I wrote out my meal plan (small adjustments so I can use leftovers rather than cooking too many meals) and stuck it on the kitchen cupboard, did a HUGE shop on Sunday afternoon and stuck to the meal plan like my life depended on it (cause it kinda does). I struggled a few times throughout the week which I fully expected. Not only with making sure I stuck to the calorie limit and the hunger that came with that, but also just with trying sooo many new things. I thrive on routine so to have so many new meals in one week was actually really challenging. Most were actually really nice and there was only one or two that I wouldn’t be real keen to try again. But I’ve marked up those recipes and there’s no reason I can’t make adjustments to make them more appetising (as long as I keep an eye on the calories).
It’s amazing how the mindset changes. Knowing that I only have 1200 calories per day means I consider everything that goes into my mouth. I have to want it and it has to taste good cause I refuse to waste the calories!
So, results. I got a little lost actually because people were all saying their weight loss from Sunday but what happened to the previous Wed which was the previous weigh-in? So, I did both:
Kgs lost Week 1:
From Sunday: 1.2kg
From Wed: 2.6kg
Gotta be happy with that.
