Weigh in tonight, and I decided to walk down to the hall as I hadn’t done much walking today.
Apart from breakfast I hadn’t had anything to eat, and when I left home only three cups of tea in total.
Usually it’s not a good thing to ‘starve’ myself or skip meals, but the dentist said not to eat anything for at least three hours, so I thought I’d hang on and have something after group.
Left we have a pork chop with new potatoes (from next door’s garden), beans, carrots, broccoli and 2 stuffing balls at 2 syns each.
Right is the left over ginger and fresh pineapple sauce with some spam thrown in and rice for Hubby.
This was my meal with a jacket potato and loads of veg, which attracted 4 syns for the spam which had been carefully weighed.
I had one of the jellies with some frozen fruit and yoghurt, plus a sprinkling of granola on top as the container only had crumbs in it and it looked lonely (I allowed 2 syns for it though).
After last week’s eight ounce gain (so much more reasonable than saying half a pound!) I was determined to lose it and hopefully a bit more, so this week not a single piece of salad or egg have passed my lips.
I smashed it.
A whopping FOUR POUND LOSS this week, and although it was the best loss of the group, I didn’t get Slimmer of The Week because I had that little gain last week. Shucks.
This is now pride of place on the framed jigsaw puzzle in the lounge,
and somewhere up on the prom is a slice of cheesecake with my name on it because I promised it to myself once I hit target.
I signed on for 12 weeks intending to lose the weight I’d put on after my radiotherapy finished. This is week 11, and as long as I stay within three pounds either side of my target weight, I do not have to pay!
