Welcome to another Saturday Swapit, an idea to share success stories and perhaps those not quite successful as well as thoughts and ideas on the subject of food and diets. Hopefully this will provide support to others whose original enthusiasm has begun to wane or things are starting to stall. There again, it can simply be used to have a good moan about why things aren’t going as well as they should be.
To join in, write a post about your experiences and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments, or if you prefer, just leave a comment below.
Thanks again to those who added theirs last week.
I am not, nor do I claim to be, a professional dietician, nutritionist or diet programme consultant.
I rejoined SW in May 2019 and have managed to stay within my target parameters since August 2019.
Anyone who wants or needs to lose serious weight should consult a medical professional or their GP. This is not a diet programme.
This week has been up and down and so has my weight. In fact, it’s varied by five pounds, which in some cases may be seen as a disaster.
I hold my hand up and admit to attacks of the munchies, cakes, biscuits and a few too many liquorice cream rock sweeties.
Throw into the works reduced exercise because of my feet, and naturally the pounds appeared.
This is no doubt a familiar story to anyone who has been on diet. It’s one of the major stumbling blocks for making us want to quit having rediscovered all things yummy that are not lettuce shaped or taste like cardboard.
We are all human, and allowed a little bit of self therapy and indulgence sometimes.
Getting back into the swing of things may be difficult for the first couple of days, but that passes and soon you’ll be back on course.
My weigh in days are now Mondays, so I have the weekend to avoid biscuits, lock the sweets in a drawer, and give it my best shot. All being well, I’ll still be in target so I’m not going to beat myself up about it, as that’s another problem……… guilt.
Subject for next week maybe?
