Socks and hob nailed boots

I haven’t done an update on the Monday Motivation recently so here goes.
I’ve stayed within target since early August and have to admit this past week I have not been eating to plan. I’ve had treats as and when I felt like it, though I have had sensible meals with plenty of fruit and veg as well, but let us just say the cheesecake, chocolate biscuits, rocky road and belgian bun were all very nice, as was the leek, ham and chicken pie with lovely flaky pastry.

These past couple of weeks have seen losses to the extent that I was just half a pound away from the lowest parameter of my three pound window either side. That could be seen as pleasing or ‘dangerous’, but with current events, to be honest I’ve had other things on my mind than the SW bible.

It came as no surprise then that I had a gain this week.
I kept my socks on this time, and the scales showed a plus of 2½ pounds. I was actually pleased as it put me slap bang on target again, so I can go back to normal and not feel guilty.
This is still part of a learning curve about maintaining my weight and what I can get away with once in a while. I say that because I don’t want to get too lax and the weight begins to pile on again. Hopefully this time next week things will have settled down and I’ll be back on track and maybe have a small loss!

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    This is great learning because it will absolutely help you stay within range over the long term. As someone who’s dieted my entire life, I know it’s completely unrealistic to think we’re never going to “cheat.” But knowing how far you can go is like getting the keys tonthe kingdom. Bravo!

  2. Damn socks! Sounds like you have it managed!

    Baby steps. Trying to lose too much at one time doesn’t work. Changing your lifestyle slowly will get you where you want to be. Congratulations on having the right attitude & being self aware. 😊

    As long as you have it under control. You have other things on your mind and a gain is perfectly understandable.
