So this last weekend, we went to visit our friends Ronen and Natalie in Norfolk. It was just so lovely to get away. I mean we love visiting friends and family in Devon, but this was just something a bit different. And our hosts were amazing – going above and beyond, organising a trip to a soft play for Oscar and to the hairdressers for me! It was super. Nat and Ron are also fans of the old SW, so all the amazing food was cooked with weight loss in mind. The wine however? Not so much. We ate, drank and laughed. But hey didn’t I say that I was going with my casual SW hat on?
I was aiming for a maintain this week. I was fine with this in principle. I made this choice. But when I returned home on Sunday, I swore I could see the weight I had “gained”. I was so upset. In fact I think I was just a little bloated. But do you know, I’ve never been able to see/feel changes in my weight like that before. Looking back I wouldn’t notice a thing until my clothes didn’t fit etc. I think this means I am more in tune with the shape, look and (without sounding pervy!) feel of my body. I’ve started looking in the mirror more too, something I’ve avoided for so long. It’s a start.
So anyway after all that, last night’s weigh in was a bit of surprise. I lost 1lb! I was thrilled and a little bit stunned. So stunned that I didn’t realise, until Zoe pointed it out, that I am now 0.5lb away from 3 Stones. So total lost is 2 Stone 13.5lb (41.5lb) so far.
We also had the vote last night for our group’s Miss Slinky 2013, for which I was nominated. To be honest I felt a bit of a fraud being nominated at all – slinky I am not! But I was also very touched. The groups winner was a lady called Corrinn. She looked fantastic in a strapless number she hasn’t fitted into for over a decade!! I was so pleased for her! Way to go Corrinn!
So my plan for next week is pretty obvious – I want to get my 3 Stone award! So a loss of 0.5lb please and a couple more lb wouldn’t go a miss either 😉 . I am still on track to lose 3.5 Stone by Christmas, so maybe I should make it more interesting and say 3.5 Stone by my husbands Christmas party on 13th December? That gives me 4 weeks. Hmmm. Yeah – sod it!
LETS DO IT!
