Week 4 roundup

One day late but:

9st 2lb.

The same as last week.

4lbs down on starting weight.

This week I'm by myself so it's going to be quite hard not to "comfort-eat". No baddies on Friday night though, or if I do, it will be baddies of my choice rather than DH's favourite pizza. Maybe I'll go Chinese. :-)

Week 4 un-roundup

I don't believe it. After such a good weekend with A, so much better than usual food-wise, I was all excited last night about this morning's weigh-in, then I forgot until after I'd had breakfast! Gaaaaah. So I am 9st 4lbs minus whatever a big mug of green tea, 2 boiled eggs and a slice of flax toast with Marmite weighs.

Come on A, get your interwebs sorted so you can update!

Week 3 roundup

9st 2lb.

0.5lb down on last week.

4lbs down from starting weight.

Not bad considering that last week we had Shrove Tuesday (pancakes!) and FIL's/MIL's 45th anniversary meal yesterday.

Now my jeans are comfortable around the legs and bottom, but I need a belt to hold them up.

9st 2.5lbs.

1lb down on last week.

3.5lbs down on starting weight.

Week 1 round-up

It's Monday again. After a really bad weekend, food-wise, I was expecting a disappointment when I got on the scales this morning, but I was wrong.

9st 3.5lbs.

Net loss 2.5lbs.

Score! So it IS worth being really disciplined during the week, and I CAN get away with a bit of a weekend blow-out.

I'm carrying on with this but I won't post every day. I'll try to remember a weekly update on Monday mornings. Weigh-ins ought to be weekly really not daily, but for the first week I wanted to know how my body was reacting. It was interesting.

See you next week!

I was up at stupid-o'clock in the dark this morning to set up the church, as I was serving. Didn't weigh myself.

Breakfast: banana and green tea before I remembered the scales.
Lunch: sushi at Yo!
Tea: 2 pieces of flax bread, one with smoked salmon and the other with mozzarella cheese.
Sins: one of the sushi dishes had breadcrumbs on, dessert, After Eights, mozzarella cheese.

I should have said some prayers in church, because goodness knows what this weekend has done to my weight. Tomorrow will be interesting.

Scales - 1, R - 0

As expected, but only by 1lb. 9st 3.5 this morning.

But I have a Chinese lunch out with friends so it might go up again tomorrow. I'll just have to be as healthy as possible.

Breakfast: banana & green tea
Lunch: Chinese - I was good actually. I had mainly veggies (ginger broccoli, mmmmm!) with just a little chicken in black bean sauce (unbreaded) and some omelette for protein. I did have half a slice of something optimistically called black forest gateau, which was pink and yellow and tasted vaguely of raspberries! Didn't like it much so I left the biggest bit.
Dinner: Fish and chips. I didn't feel like it, but DH had had a rotten day and fancied it so what's a girl to do?
Sins: "Chinese" cake, fish and chips.

R - 1, scales - 0

Remembered to weigh myself this morning. 9st 2.5. Net loss since Monday = 3.5 lbs.

Breakfast: banana & green tea
Lunch: soup & trail mix
Tea: one of my sin meals of the week (hence the small lunch) - pizza with DH. It's our treat night and one of the only 2 dirty meals I'm allowing myself in a week. Red wine probably.
Sins: pizza
