Hey Everybody, I'm starting this diary as I feel like I need help, advice, somewhere to share the ups and the downs and just talk really.. I've been a WW member since christmas and have so far lost a few pounds.. gained a few pounds.. lost more.. and after tonight have gained two!! I'm now 14lbs away from Gold and have a wedding coming up in October where I will be meeting all my boyfriend's friends.. NO PRESSURE AT ALL TO LOOK AND FEEL FABULOUS!!!! without sounding like a complete and utter cow.. before we got together in March I was 5 and a half pounds from gold... Aaaaannnddd of course I relaxed a small bit haha
My house is as you would say a busy one.. There are people of all ages and ailments.. My uncle has severe acid reflux and cannot eat much more than white meat, root veg and bran flakes! I made a spicy spag bol 3 weeks ago and his hiccups only went yesterday!! no onions, peppers, tomatoes, sauces, spices.. As if thats not hindering enough roll on lodger number 2.. who is allergic to mushrooms.. ( not sure if it is a real allergy or just a dislike, am afraid to find out i think ) and thirdly we have a person who cannot eat spicy food... fourth is a struggling weight watchers member who had a staple diet of potatoes, veg, gravy and meat.. with 7 variations of the meat each week...... all of these people are over 18 may i add.. should be well able to fend for themselves but somehow they just cant do it..
My mother who I love dearly has the same shopping list since 1984.. it consists of ham, cheese, bread milk,spuds, frozen veg and 7 varieties of meats to go with said spuds and frozen veg... Dont get me wrong, I do the shop every second week when she works away for the week but as I do have to live myself a bit I dont think it is very fair that I run a house and mother everybody when I havent given birth to any of them.
My leader has this week told me that I have to be selfish and look after myself first before everybody else.. So.. I think i might have to go root through my recipe books, do a bit of planning and make a quick dash to the shops...
Right, head in the game!! i feel that if i have to report back here that i might actually be honest with not just ye, but also with myself..
Here's to success,
