Another Saturday and opportunity to vent about the pros and cons of diets and food issues.
This is the last Swapit for November, and I will be calling it a day at the end of the year.
If anyone wants to follow up on it for 2023, please do.
I am not, nor do I claim to be, a professional dietician, nutritionist or diet programme consultant.
I rejoined SW in May 2019, achieved my target in August that year and had managed to stay within my target parameters for over three years.
Saturday Swapit is not intended as a diet programme, and anyone who wants or needs to lose serious weight should consult a medical professional or their GP.
Well, I don’t know what’s happened this week, but dieting has actually been the furthest thing from my mind, the diary has a few entries, but as for the usual Speed, Free and Syns sections in it, they have been noticeably absent.
I got on the scales yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to see I’d lost three pounds.
How? I have no idea, other than not going too mad as regards food, and although not actually skipping meals, they had been more of a snack variety than meat and two veg. We did have stew for three days with a fourth portion for Hubby, and my cottage pie did him 2 days. The bread and butter pudding I made also did us two days.
Sometimes what we eat, or not, doesn’t make sense when it comes to weight loss, though in this instance, I’m not complaining because this has put me generously back within my target parameters. The good news is that Hubby has also lost weight this week.
Crazy isn’t it.
