Day 89 – Unlucky 13th Weigh-in

Life has been extremely challenging. I have done things this week that I haven’t done in 14 years. I’m sure that an unused section of my brain has been activated.

I am very proud of myself. Who is this person that I have become?

I’m overwhelmed by the turn my life has taken. I still feel the shock of it hitting me daily but I’m taking it one day at a time. That’s all I can do.

This weekend will be very difficult because where there used to be two, there will only be me.

But life goes one; my mantra of the week.


First disappointing weigh-in since I started the diet 12 weeks and 4 days ago. I have lost weight every week except this week. I gained 0.2 kg. Shock horror! I have been on the diet 100% including on my birthday. See last blog: Day 86 – I Have Love.

The three stone mark remains elusive. Damn.

I am going to give it a few days to settle and if it doesn’t, I will step up to step 3 of the Cambridge diet which means going from current 810 calories to 1000 calories. It sounds strange increasing calories to lose weight but it has the effect of jolting the body into losing weight.

Week Thirteen’s verdict: today’s weight 105.9kg, week’s weight gain 0.2kg (0.4 pounds); total weight loss; 18.5 kg ( 40.7 pounds)

  1. it could be so many reasons hun and 0.2lb is very small nonetheless that’s not easy to take.

    you’re doing so well in the face of great adversity and you should be proud of how far you’ve come.

    • Thanks Livia. I’m never giving up until I can call myself slim for the first time in my adult life. And this time, I’m staying slim forever. If I can stay on a diet through the worst months of my entire life, nothing sad or happy will ever derail me ever again. I owe it to myself and to all of you who are following my journey.
