Weigh In - Week 11

I lost 1.3lbs this week. I'm really happy with that, as I was only aiming to maintain my weight this week, with food-based social engagements, Christmas preparations, etc. I'm only 0.3lbs off 2 stone now! Pretty exciting!

I was working today and I kind of always feel horribly uncomfortable on work days (by which I mean the days I'm not doing the office elements of it or meetings) because my job is really physically demanding (I often end up standing for 12 hours, carrying a lot of heavy equipment and am pretty much always horribly dehydrated), but, I also have to dress in a formal fashion. Being fat and trying to dress formally is difficult enough anyway - I really hate it, but, then trying to be comfortable working too... Urgh. So, normally I catch glimpses of myself in the mirror and I feel like an absolute state, but, today, I saw myself in the mirror and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not saying I'd be satisfied to stay at this weight forever, but, I didn't look like a bedraggled mess - my skin is sooo much clearly nowadays and my face has lost weight and the clothes, I suppose fit more how they're supposed to, rather than being strained to their limit. So, that was nice.

Anyway, guys, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and the food situation isn't too disastrous! See you on the other side...! x
