Despite often eating two platefuls at dinner time of the main meals I prepared this week, and despite enjoying lots of cake (all within my allocated rations of course- how I choose to use my rations is my choice), my weight loss has been very good. 9 lbs in 2 weeks..
Highest weight 345 lbs (24 stone 9 lbs)
Weight 2 weeks ago 279 lb (19 st 13 lbs)
Today 270 lb (19 st 4 lbs)
This is just what I needed to see to give me encouragement and now I will stride forth and get the job done. Today I’ll do some walking and gardening on the exercise front as I’m sure keeping active is an essential part of becoming healthier and walking was a key component of all the weight I lost (80 lbs) when I spent a year on wartime rations.
I’ve started back on rationing two weeks ago so will once again keep as true as I can to this for another year. It’s such a little sacrifice to make in the bigger scheme of things..
This morning I was up bright and early making a stew out of all the leftover veggies in the fridge and I’ve had three bowlfuls for breakfast. All my fat and sugar has been used up this week as I baked quite a bit so when I get my weekly rations again tomorrow I think I’m going to have a lean week and save my supplies and then cook something special in a week or two.
