Diet Progress

I don’t write very much about my dieting efforts these days, mainly because it is old news and food becomes dull and boring after a while. I stopped putting pictures of my meals on my blog for the same reasons, they were all much of a muchness, and when you’ve seen one curry, well, you’ve seen them all apart from the crockery they’re served in.

In the beginning though, pictures of dinner were inspiring in
a) presentation,
b) portion control and
c) variety

Today I was expecting our water rates bill, but instead I had a personal letter enclosing this
Yep, this is my official notification that I have been at target for two years.
I have to come clean though and say that my target was adjusted a few months ago having reached it by accident. I tried fiercely to maintain it, but it was so hard, especially trying to balance Hubby’s dietary needs and keeping to my own which ended up making me depressed and anxious.
I spoke to our group leader and she agreed to move it back to the original target I had set myself when I joined her group in May 2019, which although only a difference of a couple of pounds, was enough for me to relax and keep within my parameters. I knew it was a good weight for me and for once my body and I are in agreement!

About pensitivity101

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.

    No matter what people say dieting is not an easy task. My partner and I were on a diet for about a year or so. When we reached our target we came right back to old habits and over the next 2 years regained what we lost before. I admire all people who stick to their diets and maintain the target because it is not an easy task at all!

    • Good for you losing the weight in the first place. I know all about yo-yoing so I am really pleased to have maintained my target this long. You are right, it is old habits, and if we can tweak them to be slightly better habits, we’re in with a fighting chance. I still have chocolate and the naughty cakes once in a while.

  2. Good luck with it. I’m a bit on the chubby side so I should wise up about foo
