Week 9: weigh in week

22nd February 2020img_1271

As always if you are interested feel free to read but a reminder that this is a diary that I am enjoying writing to keep me on track. 

This is the week that I look forward to and am completely terrified of every month. I hate not knowing if what I have done is enough, or trying to guess how I will feel about my weight loss, will it be enough? Although I feel like I am really finding my feet in this whole weight loss thing. I’ve figured out a calorie balance that suits me, got the recipes down and I am pushing myself at the gym. So please keep your fingers crossed for me that it will be enough.
