Weigh to go: week ten

My penultimate weigh in before my current 12 weeks is up (the first meeting didn’t count).
Being so close to my stone and a half certificate, I’ve been trying to boost my loss as per their recommendations.

After the saga of the bagels last week where Hubby saved the day and ate them for me as they were eleven syns each (I only had the one, honest and that was completely nude, undressed, with no filling or garnish), it’s been a challenging effort.

I came unstuck this week with that quiche, which had an enormous 13Β½ syns, thus I over synned that day. ‘Oops’ doesn’t begin to cover it, but I put it behind me and in trying to redeem myself,Β  reverted to salad and jacket potatoes and religiously checked anything I wasn’t sure of on the SW website Syns page.
Then yesterday, although careful and not exceeding my syns allowance, I had that sausage.

So, not wanting to get too excited over the guideline weigh in which showed a loss this morning, how did I do?
Did I shoot my success out of the boat with that banger?
Or did I get rewarded and certified?

Hurrah!
A two pound loss this time and that certificate is now mine!

N lost another three pounds (she is doing so well!) but C put on half a pound as she hasn’t been able to exercise because of her back problems.

Next week is crunch time.Β  Can I do it?
Just half a pound to my club 10 certificate, denoting a loss of 10% of my body weight, but I want to lose another two pounds because then I hit the target I set myself when I started in June.

I’ve already signed up for another 12 weeks, and hope to lose another stone in that time. But that’s in the future.
I have seven days to make or break my promise to myself.
Don’t forget, there’s a steak dinner riding on my success.

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.

    A steak dinner must surely be sufficient incentive to go all out to lose those last 2 lbs! πŸ™‚

    • Too right, and it’s even allowed as the steak will be lean and thus ‘free’ with the salads my speed foods provided I have no or minimal dressing. I’m just drooling at the thought of getting my tastebuds round that delicious pud……………….

    How manukau is a stone?

    • If you mean how much in weight, it’s 14 pounds. In the UK some people weigh themselves in pounds only, some stones and pounds, and more recently, kilos. My scales do all three, though for SW it’s stones and pounds (which I prefer as I’m old school of feet and inches etc rather than metric) and the GP surgery kilos! The nurse rounded my weight UP at my diabetes check too!
