Weigh-in 4

-0.2 kg = not enough to get excited about. 

It doesn't help that I somehow managed to mess up my weight record on Rosemary Conley so that it's not even counting the 2 lbs I lost initially. 

Ah well, I am officially less than 10st. Only by about 3ozs but still I'm there before we go on holiday on Thursday. A week of eating a lot and not doing much will send me shooting back up I'm sure. Isn't it unfair how quickly weight goes on compared with how slowly it comes off?

On the plus side, yesterday in fitness class in the YM I was watching myself in the mirrors that line the walls. 'Hey, I'm looking pretty good,' I thought.

Obviously the thought won't linger for long as when I sit down and my tummy cuddles up with my boobs I soon remember.

It hasn't been a good week though as I've already gone into the holiday mind frame and I'm using oil to cook - well it makes things taste better than the spray oil - and not being sparing with my plate when I dish up. 

But again, on the plus side, I didn't add cheese to my dinner last night even though Husband who thought my sweet potato, spinach and chickpea bake was bland, brought it to the table.

Two very bad days!

A family barbecue and a party so have eaten far too much of the wrong stuff! 

Back to seriousness today. But that got off to a bad start when I discovered we didn't have enough milk for my weetabix so had to have toast and marmalade. But I didn't have a thick layer of butter ...

I'll get some milk and have weetabix for lunch. And as we don't have any food left in the house dinner will be meagre. that's the plan anyway.

Weigh-in 3

Another measly pound. Almost. Two weeks of dieting and I've lost nearly 2 pounds. 

I suppose it's better than nothing. And I've not been really strict. 

One more week until our holiday.

And this week's failures

Thursday was okayish. I think. A little teeny piece of chocolate may have come my way, possibly. Friday too. Oh, no, wait.

Friday I had lunch at Daughter's and she'd made a yummy pea and pecorino quiche and bread. Would have been rude not to eat it.

Saturday we were invited to younger Son and Nuora's for dinner. Delicious Chinese chicken and stir fried veg and noodles. Plus a slice of the cake I was trying out.
White chocolate and blueberry with a cheesecake topping. Hardly any calories really.

Today was going well ... until I realised the dish I'd planned - and was trying for the first time - would be much too small for Husband's appetite so i had to make chips as well. I just had to. But I didn't eat many. Not really.

Think I will have to accept the fact that I won't lose weight this week. 

Must try harder. Holidays in ten days.

Tomorrow is another day

Yesterday it was a a slice of birthday cake in Zac's; today it was pavlova plus a slice if lemon tart for GrandDaughter2's birthday.

Life conspires against me and my diet. I am convinced of it.

And so begins week 2

Week 1 weight loss = 1 lb.

Yes, you read that right. One measly pound. Yes, I know I had a few lapses but still ...

I blame Heather and James for feeding us so well last night. 

Onwards and upwards. At least I didn't gain weight.

Days 5 and 6 moderate success i.e. only minor fails. Day 7 however ...
The only positive is that the hot chocolate isn't mine!

Back on the wagon today. Except we're going out to friends' for dinner this evening ...
