I meant to do this earlier in the week, but made a pact with myself that I’d definitely get it out before the next weigh in. Which is tonight. Talk about cutting it fine!
Anyway I have decided to write these more regularly. I’m going to start by writing a quick update every Wednesday morning, after my weigh in on Tuesday night. I’ll see how that feels and whether it allows me to say enough. So watch out for Wednesday updates from now on (including tomorrow!)
So update from last week.
After the incident with the sausages (ooer!) I must have been super focused the rest of the week, as it turned out I lost 3.5lb. I got on the scales, looked down and my instant reaction was that what I was seeing was a maintain. I was so relieved that the figure wasn’t higher than the previous week, that it took about a minute to realise it was actually a loss! I was gob smacked and super super smiley I can tell you!
That leaves me 0.5lb away from my 1.5 stone award which I really want to get tonight. I have been pretty focused this week; like someone in group said last week – I have been “on it, like a car bonnet”! I haven’t been too challenged this week, which has made things easier and we’ve eaten tonnes of yummy things. I think my favourite this week was Fajitas. Made in the usual way with lots of chicken and peppers etc, but instead of the high syn wraps or sauces (which Ben had), I had mine with free rice flavoured with corridander. Very filling and very yum!
However, one thing I did do this week was to buy a 5 pack of Curly Wurly’s. They are only 6 Syns a pop and I have found it easy to fit them in. But the thing is, I don’t feel good about having one every day, just because I have the Syns to spare. Technically there is no harm in having one every day if that’s what you want to do, but I just haven’t enjoyed them as much as I thought I might. Plus after not eating chocolate for a couple of months, this week has seen my skin erupt again, so maybe I’m feeling uncomfortable about chocolate every day for a reason. it might work for some, I just don’t think it works for me. I’m going to knock this on the head now and not buy multi packs again.
Anyway weigh in tonight. Also looking forward to seeing my friend who has been busy on her days off writing essays. Yes she is Wonder Woman!
I’ll let you know how I do in the morning. Wish me luck!
PS: If anyone has any questions about this please feel free to ask. I’ve had a couple of people ask me things and I’m trying to be as open and helpful as possible. Ask away….
