The weekend away did end in disaster with mindless eating of the dessert – once I had a few drinks I lost control and splurged! That was the Saturday night. On the Sunday I regained my control and ate sensibly and Monday also went reasonably well but for some reason I lost the plot on Tuesday (28th January). I was back at work on Tuesday and had taken my lunch with me but we had a big shared lunch and instead of making conversation and avoiding the shared lunch then going to my office to eat the salad I bought in which was my plan, I got a plate and took part in the lunch provided. It included chocolate brownie!!! Doh, doh!!!! It went down hill after that I had two biscuits (cheap ginger nuts) from the cookie jar, then I had the chocolate Roses that I had in my office draw, followed by I think 3 biscuits at the meeting I had at 2pm and to top it off I had handfuls of chocolates from the lollie jar. Once I got home I continued on my wrecking ball mission with 3 or 4 mini creme eggs and seriously I can’t quite remember what I ate for dinner – it might have been a home made burger with ciabatta bun oh and I think there was also a christmas mince pie and crackers with cheese and two glasses of wine before I had dinner. I WENT OFF THE RAILS BIG TIME. I deserved every gram of the gain!!
The next day, Wednesday morning I jumped on the scales and “owned my evil” (Thanks Gwen for talking about owning your own evil). I was very disappointed in myself! I wrecked all the progress I had made over the previous fortnight. I was 57.5Kg going away for the weekend and on Wednesday morning I had shot up to 60.7Kg and I knew why.
However! I drew a line in the sand and decided to go back to the basics of eating clean (avoid sugar and wheat) and I have been rewarded. Today….
So slowly I have worked my way back down and I am at an all time low. My goal is 54Kg, so 1.9Kg to go!
Zeaslousgirl – I own the Aria FitBit scales and they send my weight measurement to my computer over wifi and the little picture is a screenshot of what I see when I log onto the FitBit website. It keeps a log of all my weigh in’s.
So that is where I am at. If you don’t read Gwen’s blog I seriously recommend you do. She is not perfect but she is completely honest and despite not leaving many/any comments on her blog she has really helped me work on the mental side of the weightloss project. Thank you Gwen. Note her blog is soon to shift to a different domain/web address but she will share the new address when she does make the move.
