PILs produced baklava they bought in the German market, insisted I had some, so I chose the smallest one. With all the walking I'm still under on net cals, but over on base cals and fat for today. It did taste very good though, definitely worth it. Even MIL noticed I had lost weight (DH told me, there's no way she'd give me a direct compliment). I'm getting more of the "flipping heck, you have lost a lot of weight haven't you" comments now, which are a massive ego boost. I'll weigh on Monday, hopefully I'll be 11stone for my birthday on Thursday then spoil it with all the cake
IMST its about choices isnt it? with the baklava you ate it but the smallest piece. Up to now I'd have gone for a big piece and then lost all willpower and spiralled down. Today I took dd and 2 friends to cinema then kfc. I had 2 pieces of chicken but no fries or anything else. It was a treat, something we hardly ever do. I don't feel deprived. Will be back on track tomorrow
Aaarrrggghh. My tummy is better so obviously I've sabotaged any good that's come from it.
Spent the afternoon at my parents celebrating three of our December birthdays. Obviously this involved the most delicious birthday cake. Chocolate no less and I had a biggish slice. We also had Dominoes last night.
I was looking forward to weigh in as I thought I'd done ok. Dreading it now.
Me too one. Had planned to be back on it today forgetting I had made chocolate cake for dd1 birthday. Also ended up having a scone mid am and lemon tart for pudding. All small portions but hardly sensible!!!
Went out for dinner, but made good choices. I had fishcakes and winter veg, drank water instead of wine, and didn't have any pudding even though everyone else did. I even walked there and back. Pudding refusal was the hardest choice, as PILs kept giving me looks as they ate pudding.
I'm down another 2lb, looks like I might actually be in the 10s club for my birthday (and then kicked out because of excesses on my birthday). 11 0 today, and BMI is at 30.34, nearly out of obese, I'd say another week and my Mii will stop looking like the Michelin woman.
Well done everyone. I'm going to weigh in either Tues or Wed. I don't have scales at home any more so I have to use a set in a clinic room at work.
Glad you're feeling a bit better SKBM.
I've had a good weekend in terms of controlling the amounts I've eaten but not in terms of what it was iyswim. Still, that's my priority at the moment and I feel fairly confident I will have lost a few pounds.
Well I'm impressed. I just made sweet and sour chicken from the Fake-aways section. It looks and tastes just like the real thing and it's only about 280calories per portion without rice. The portions are big so not much rice needed either. I'm happy with that.
That's great hair . I teach my students a sweet and sour chicken recipe where I work and use the recipe alot at home - it's really not v difficult and so much nicer/healthier than a pack. Let me know if you like the book as I've been wondering whether to get it
Kato hope you feel better soon - lots of nasty bugs about at the minute
Took DD to see father christmas today. She loved it. I admit I struggled with all the people (anxiety issues) there but managed to get through it for DDs sake. She keeps saying 'mis mis' (father christmas) and 'knee' as she's really proud she sat on his knee
Today I sorted out my website, coloured an illustrated story, and made my birthday cake, ready for Thursday (in case it goes horribly wrong, a likely scenario as I don't much care for measuring or sifting). It's a kind of sticky toffee pudding, I haven't tasted any though.
IMST oh, will have to see if I can nose at your website via your fb page
I had oven chips and a couple of very small home made nut burgers for dinner (A real treat - I haven't had either for months). I can't believe I was actually full up on a portion about 1/3 smaller than I used to eat and would still feel hungry - I even had to have gaviscon as it felt like so much! Not doing that well on eating very good foods this week, but trying to just be good with portions and not lose control. Blood test later this week to see how the iron level is going.
Well done North that's a good loss. I remember getting when I saw people getting in the 10s when I started out, while I was still in 13s months in, for me it's been a long, slow, steady loss which I hope means it's sustainable.
