Suspension Lifted

Well, try and explain this.
yellow cardWe didn’t have our weekly weigh in last weekend because we were away from our scales and we know that MOH’s weigh light. In fact it was his scales that started all this, plus I’d been cooking yummy meals there as well as the yummy lamb dishes before we went (sigh).

Last time, after two weeks of salad on the menu twice during those weeks, we both put on the weight we’d lost previously.
This week, I have confessed to eating doughnuts and a bacon roll, and also hold my hand up to lemon cheesecake ๐Ÿ™„ (ouch! that slapped wrist hurt!!) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

You may not believe this, but since our last weigh in, Hubby has lost half a kilo, and I have lost 1.2 kilos.

doughnutsYay! Doughnut diet!!
(seriously, NOT recommended)

I’ve said before that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another, that we are all individuals and it’s a case of getting to understand what we eat, how often and how much that can make a difference.
Guess this kind of proves it and also shows that a bad day is not necessarily bad news, unless you have them all the time.
thumbs up smile


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I have always understood that “moderation in all things” is the best approach. This is not only easier to handle mentally, but I also understand that if you withdraw a key element from your diet, then your body goes into survival mode and starts storing! Fat, sugar, salt and water etc. are needed in moderation so reducing intake of same should be on a controlled basis. Good job! Keep it up (Keep it off would be better I guess!). ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Exactly. If we eliminate everything we love in the food line that is bad for us, it makes us grouchy, depressed and feeling guilty when we have it.
      I have to watch my sugars anyway, but sometimes I need (rather than crave) something really sweet to boost my energy levels. It’s taken years to lose four and a half stone and I never managed that final seven pounds, but saying that, it’s stayed off, and that is more important to me than the yo yo of off-on weight.
      Moderation in all things is right, and accepting that everyone’s ‘balance’ is different is something the computer tick list that most GPs follow doesn’t allow for. ๐Ÿ™‚
