This is my amaryllis, it started to flower 4 days ago and I had not lost 5 pounds. That was my commitment to do before it flowered when I planted the bulb 10 days ago. I said I wanted to lose 5 pounds before it flowered. I lost 2.5 pounds.. but I am not discouraged.
I've been ill all this week with a very heavy cold. I've had a sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, cough, aches and pains. My cousin reckons it is probably covid, but whether it is or not, I feel awful. I can't remember feeling this ill for years.
My lovely husband had made me tasty meals, all on plan but I haven't been out walking, I felt too ill and tired.
But I do feel enthused to keep trying to lose this weight.
Today although the sun was shining, it was very cold, only 2.4°C.
I have 5 coats all too small, but I had bought a puffa jacket two years ago and I tried that on this morning, albeit without a thick cardigan and I could zip it up which I couldn't last year. So I know it will soon be fitting me with a cardigan, I feel really excited about that.
I hope I'll start to feel better tomorrow.
Isn't this trying to lose weight so hard for some of us?
