Weight Loss Update - 8 Months In - 25lbs Down

Urgh! August was another frustrating month when it came to weight loss. Last months post was all about positivity but this months is all about mehhh. Try as I might I only managed to lose just 1 tiny little pound in the whole month and for two weeks I was feeling so negative that I just didn't bother weighing. I know why though so I'm just going to have to deal with it and do my best to overcome it. My doctor started me on some new tablets at the start of the month and to be honest they've made me want to eat for Britain. Maybe they're doing something to my body or maybe it's just in my head, and I've been looking for an excuse to eat, I don't know but either way I'm frustrated and disappointed.

So where to now? Well the tablets are going to be a part of my life for the foreseeable future so I'm going to have to deal with the effects be it good and bad, and try and be a lot stronger when it comes to food. I'm really hoping yet again that the Thinking Slimmer, Slim, Chill and Fit pods can do there thing, and help change my mindset, if not my body. I have a couple of major tests ahead this month, including Mummy Lou's birthday next Sunday but I'm really going to do my best to get back on track. I'm at hospital next week and having a proper weigh in is normally good inspiration so I'm hoping that it does the trick this time round.

I'm sorry for the somewhat miserable update but I'm telling it like it is. Losing weight isn't the easy thing that it's often portrayed as, it's a tough and long journey for some of us and we often need all the help we can get. I know weight loss updates have been thin in the ground this month both on my weight loss page, on twitter and on instagram, but I want to thank you all as per usual for your support - without you guys I would most definitely have given up x Thanks for reading and I'll see you tomorrow with my August empties post xx
