You might remember, last Friday was Ben’s Christmas Party – the one I’d focused on and used as a timescale for my weight loss. I had a beautiful Monsoon dress to wear…….
And wear it I did….
…with complete pride! This isn’t the best photo I could have taken, but it took me longer to get ready that I thought it would (doesn’t it always!) and the cab was practically on the doorstep when this was taken.
I loved wearing it so much. I felt glam, confident and happy all night. We had such a blast and I have to say thank you to Matt and Ben at IQ for organising the whole thing. I also want to say a huge thank you to Jo for making me laugh til I cried on the waltzers! Particularly when I asked where she’d put her handbag to stop it whizzing away!!!! Hahahaha still makes me laugh now!
Despite my hair do (a hastily cobbled together french pleat!) not surviving the waltzers, the dress looked flawless all night. As evidenced by the drunken selfies I took when we got home!
It was also a great dress to dance in, the net underskirt making it extremely swishy – just right for a good boogie!
And I am guessing it was that dancing that was my saving grace this week. Considering the amounts of white wine I consumed on Friday and white toast I ate without really thinking (man did I feel rough) the next morning, I was happy with my decision to go for a maintain this week. I have to say I did even wonder if I might have a small gain. But at last nights weigh in I nearly fell off the scales when I saw I’d had a loss. And not just any loss. I had lost a whopping 5LB!!!!! and won Slimmer of the Week. That takes me to a total of 3 Stone 13lb (55lb). It also takes me into the next stone bracket, which was my original goal for the weeks leading up to Christmas. Despite changing my goal last week, it seems my body just didn’t get the memo!!
I couldn’t have been more thrilled or more baffled. But I am so very very close to 4 Stone now. It would be so nice to get that by next week, my last weigh in before Christmas. That would be half a stone more than my original Christmas target
So that’s my plan for the next week. 1lb loss please.
I have another festive gathering this Friday, but I don’t intend to go as mad as I did last week (ooo my head hurts just thinking about it) partly because I’ll have Oscar with me and partly because I couldn’t face a hang over with him in the house. I wont have the super duper Emma looking after him like she did last week. Thank you again petal!
Hope you have fun, festive time in this week before Christmas – I haven’t wrapped a single present yet. I plan to do them in front of the Strictly final on Saturday – eeek so exciting!!!
