Saturday Swapit #47

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.


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.

    I’d still like to put on a few more stone in weight! I lost a lot (3 stone) when I had my spinal operation in 2007. I was originally only 9 stone anyway, so it was a lot to lose really.
