Weigh to Go: Week One

Or not.
I have been drinking plenty of water today (anti water retention),  had a bowl of cereal for my breakfast (my B list item) with a banana and a cheese pasta salad (my A list item) for lunch, well actually a late lunch being around 3pm.

cheese pasta saladHubby had macaroni cheese, so I pinched a spoonful of his naked pasta and sprinkled my 30g of cheddar on the top and over my salad.
Radishes and spring onions included in the mix today, entitled ‘House Salad’ on the carton. Wonder if they do a ‘Boat Salad’?

So. How did I do?
I had hoped to lose a couple of pounds, but felt I hadn’t lost any, and when I weighed myself this morning, I was the same weight as last week.
Imagine my pleasure at being told I had lost FOUR POUNDS.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    FOUR POUNDS!!!!!! You are a hero!

  3. Sounds like the other scale is better!

    Good news! I hope it continues without too much struggle. 🙂

    • It was indeed! I know the first week is always a good loss, but if I can lose just a pound a week for the next 11 weeks, that’ll be over a stone in total.

        I hope it goes that good for you.
        In my experience with diets, it usually slows down and not so steady. Have to be prepared for ups and downs and don’t get discouraged. If you can still stick with it for long term (forever), it should work.
        I always get fed up around that time period (3 months) and if I haven’t seen good results by then I give up. Only time I lasted longer was on Nutrisystem, I lost about 40 lbs over about 6 months time on their plan (packaged food). Thats when I gave up soda, salt, and started walking every day. Also pretty much gave up the white stuff. But it was expensive and when I went back to working on the ships, I couldn’t bring the packaged food and since those cooks are really great, I just couldn’t stick with the plan. I still walk daily, don’t eat white stuff or salt, but gained all the weight back anyway. 😦

      • My weight has always been a yo yo, but in 2001 when I was made redundnat, I weighed in at 18 and a half stone. I lost a stone within 5 years, then we went house hunting in a tent after selling our house and because there was no fridge, it meant no spread, mayo, ice cream etc. We bought the cottage in the August, and I’d lost two stones (28lbs) in those 6 months. Then another in the next year just by keeping off the fat stuff. It’s only recently that it’s started to go back on, though basically not much had changed in our diet. We still walked the dog three or four times a day (no choice anyway as we have to take her up to the dog walk to pee). It’s an ongoing thing, but at least I’ve had a professional look at my recipes and got the nod that they are ‘healthy’.
        I think it wasn’t so much what I was eating, but when and how much. If nothing else, these past years have made me more food aware, and that was probably half the battle for me.

      • Capt Jill says:

        It sounds like you’ve got it pretty well figured out.
        It always seems so hard to keep the weight from packing on. I manage to stay pretty much stable, but if I slack off a couple of days, I gain a few pounds. I hate that!

      • Sigh, it happens, but I was told that what goes on quick comes off quick, and it’s the old weight that’s so hard to shift. I think I’m working on pre 1980 at the moment!

      • Capt Jill says:

        They do say that, but it never works that way for me. It goes on quick and takes forever to go away!

  5. scifihammy says:

    Wow! That is amazing! Very well done! 🙂

  6. Most excellent – and you even got some pasta! It is a win-win situation!

  7. Great news! Can I have what you lost? My cardiologist is always on me to gain weight but I just don’t know how!

    • I suppose you should be eating all the things I’m not (chocolate, sticky buns, sweets etc), but then you have dietary issues which makes it all so very unfair doesn’t it! The thing is they are’ empty’ calories, and so not beneficial to a healthy lifestyle. Good news on your Lyme situation by the way. 🙂
