Thanks so much for your lovely comments about the weight loss so far.
At weigh in on Monday, this happened!!
|My son has asked me to point out that his thumb plays a starring role in this picture!|
I was a little disappointed in just a half pound loss last week, particularly when I have seven trillion stones to lose so I made a few adjustments to my eating plan. I love them, but at the mere sniff of a potato or a slice of bread and the carbs joyfully migrate to my hips and have a party. And invite their friends. So although you can eat anything on the plan in moderation, I cut them out completely last week apart from two tiny salad potatoes and a tiny amount of noodles added to a stir fry. I tried as much as possible to eat 'clean' and filled up on lovely fresh veggies, fruit, salmon and chicken. I didn't feel deprived at all and amused my office colleagues by eating a bag of sugar snap peas at my desk. It must look like I'm eating all the time!! Added to this was lots of water and I replaced my copious cups of tea and coffee with hot water. For my evening treats I've been enjoying a yoghurt and fruit, a low cal hot chocolate drink and the odd curly wurly to assuage any chocolate deficiency!
All this combined with a couple of power walks at lunch time resulted in a five pounds loss, and so brings my total to date to 22lbs
I achieved my stone and a half award, and was, embarrassingly, slimmer of the week again. It really does prove that if you stick to the plan it will work. I've cheated on diets so many times in the past but the only person I've been cheating is myself. And quite frankly, that just ain't on any more sunshine!
A thought for the week : Don't wish for it. Work for it.
Random piece of information:- I have 19 kiwi fruit in my kitchen. I think they're breeding.
Non-foody treat purchase this week:- an infusions bottle, more about this soon.
Something I'm looking forward to:- a
dirty Romantic weekend away with me fella in Gloucester
See you soon!
