This week, Last week

Tonight is my final freebee weigh in, and I am not confident at all.
This week has been the hardest for me, and that is partly my own fault for setting myself a target for the duration which is so close I can almost taste it (and that steak dinner).
In order to achieve my goal, I think I have tried too hard, and in so doing given myself the added problems of feeling bloated and constipated.

Despite eating plenty of fresh fruit and veg, it is more than likely that I have not been drinking enough, and in desperation I reached for an old favourite to ‘help me go’.
No, this was not the beloved chocolate brazils, but dried apricots.
They are not exactly cheap to buy (500g cost just under three pounds), but the fresh ones did absolutely nothing, so drastic measures were required.
They are also not the best things to have on the SW programme, as they are not ‘free’ food, but classed as syns.

At 2½ syns per 25g, that may not sound a lot, but that bag of 500g therefore contained twenty portions and so a whopping 50 syns.
I’m afraid I could sit and eat a whole packet with little trouble, apart from a few hours later when the rumblings for the desired effect would begin to take hold and take me too far in the other direction. As it was, I had a good four portions yesterday, and let’s just say I’m a lady in waiting.

The ‘guideline scales’ showed no change this morning, and unless Mount Vesuvius shifts herself, my Club 10 certificate is still in the consultant’s box.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
