It’s been a bit of a week, and the trip to hospital may well have been a contributory factor, especially as we had a ‘Ready Meal’ cottage pie which attracted 15 syns (I looked it up).
I also took a ‘day off’ on Friday to recharge my shaken batteries, but got back into it on Saturday.
So. How do you think I did? A pound? Two pound loss?
My scales weigh in pounds, stones and pounds, and kilos, and I double checked them all.
Yep, you’re reading that right.
I lost a whopping FIVE AND A HALF POUNDS.
I accept that most of that is probably water and the first week is usually a good show, but I am over the moon with this.
I’ve started this week with porridge for breakfast as I was cold when I woke up……..
we forgot to turn the heating back on!
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.
Wow! Great. Hope this trend continues. All the best.
Me too. A pound or two a week would be very welcome, or just staying the same occasionally, as long as the weight stays off!!!!
Keep at it. It will come down.
Slow and sure, that’s all I’m hoping for.
Wow that’s a great start! Well done. 🙂
I am really pleased that my efforts have paid off especially after the glitch days,
My efforts have Not paid off – but the way I look at it is . . . if I hadn’t tried I’d weigh even more! 🙂
Same here. I managed to keep within a pound or two for over six months, so felt I had a fighting chance now of losing those extra pounds since my radiotherapy finished. I’d never been able to get back into the swing of things what with selling the boat, house hunting, family and health issues for one, both or the dog.
Sometimes there is just too much other stuff going on! 🙂
Great start! That’s always good to give you a boost especially after the week you had!
Thanks Kate. I’m really pleased, and as you say, it’s given me a boost.
Excellent and, while you can no doubt come up with reasons that may not all be personal planning, just accept it and smile at yourself the next time you are facing a mirror! 🙂
I’m really pleased Colin, as it’s better than I hoped and better than my first week at SW!
Good for you! 🙂
