Back in the Driver's Seat

I am very happy to report that after a pretty destructive though enjoyable Christmas, I'm back in control of my food intake. I never weighted myself after Christmas, so I don't know how much damage I did, but my clothes told everything I needed to know.

As mentioned in my previous post I am back in GSA. After a month of eating well, my weight returned to my pre-Christmas number of 82kgs/180lbs and my clothes fitted normally again. In fact I now fit into a UK14/US12. I am very pleased about this. I'm still a long way away from my goal of 120lbs. but I feel much more confident now that I'm moving in the right direction again.

Now that I have my food under control, I'm turning my attention this week to my water intake and exercise which have been negligible. These are two key components for successful weight loss and now that I'm 45 days into eating perfectly, I feel ready to incorporate them. Besides, my honey and I are off to Tunisia next Monday for 3 weeks and I need to get myself ready for all the hiking we plan to do.

I will be reporting in again at the beginning of April after we get back and I hope then I will have lots of positive news to report regarding my weight loss journey.
