STARTING WEIGHT: 229.5 lbs
ENDING WEIGHT: 228.2 lbs
WEIGHT LOSS: 1.3 lbs
Very unexpected! I have to say, last night I was preparing myself to see a gain, somewhere around the 5lb mark, so delighted that I have actually lost weight over the last two weeks!
Of course, the above weight loss for a two-week period is quite low. I actually lost more than this in the week before the holiday, so must have gained a little while I was away. Still, given how much I was eating on holiday (endless plates of schnitzel, goulash and torte), it's amazing I didn't put on more - a combination of being on our feet all day and getting very little sleep must have done it! (When I say we got three hours sleep a night that's not hyperbole, but the time between setting the alarm and it going off!)
The holiday was fantastic too. Got a chance to practice my German while in Austria (I lived in Germany for three years waaaay back), and made trips out to Slovenia and Slovakia while we were there too. I can't even begin to describe everything we've done, but I'll give you my top three - taking a hot air balloon ride in the mountains, having dinner in a castle, and attending a Mozart concert in the Golden Hall in Vienna!
Got my brother's stag party this coming weekend, so off again, this time back to Belgium (where I also lived, for six years). Not as worried weight-wise about that one - its bound to be focussed more on the alcohol than the food! Still, I have to be careful - although I've consistently seen a loss, the small results over the last few months has actually put me behind schedule weight-wise. I am a couple of pounds heavier now than I would be if I had hit my target every week. I'm not too worried - I keep seeing losses, and don't mind if they're smaller than I would like, as long as they are there!
