The last couple of weeks I have been eating within my calorie range and walking the dogs almost every day. I also had my weigh-in on Monday, and I've lost 9lbs this week. I'm still feeling fat and useless even with the 9lb loss, but I'm ENJOYING the exercise.
It's difficult getting out of the house to start with but once I'm out I am enjoying the walks. At first I was just taking Saskia because although she pulls she is well behaved, Mitch just doesn't listen (he is also slightly deaf) and isn't well trained. Yesterday I asked my brother to come with me and he did, so we took both dogs and to be honest my brother kinda ruined it because he did nothing but swear at Mitch so I got kinda
annoyed and didn't enjoy the walk as much.
Today I took both dogs on my own and Mitch was pretty good to be honest, he came back (almost) straight away when I called him, and I even managed to get him to sit towards the end of the walk.
There's a duck with six little ducklings that are sooo cute on the canal, horses in the fields, geese and ducks and herons all along the canal, fields and trees and flowers, it's just really really nice, I'm SO glad I found it! I really like how happy and excited the dogs are when they are out and about as well, so that motivates me to get out of the house with them a little more (they're rarely walked by anyone else).
I'm making better food choices. I am still eating what I want in moderation, but within my calorie range. I had a huge salad for dinner which was lovely, all fresh veg and it came to a whopping 245 calories! lol, for a massive plate of food. I'm stuffed. I am still eating things like chocolate but in small amounts. I just need to keep it up now, keep up with the walking, continue to make good food choices and the weight will carry on coming off. The walks are also giving me a focus for my day, so it's helping with the depression.
