Decided to take the bull by the horns and put my thoughs, diet, ups and downs in a diary, then perhaps I will track any ups and downs and the causes. So to cut a long story short, I signed up at a RC class last week, had one weigh in with a 3lb loss, I'm on the second week, and everything is going OK, had a blimp day today, so tea was a vegetable stir fry, Beansprouts, mushrooms, pepper, onions, corn, ....and them pea pod things.... Mangytout.. and soy sauce, that made up for the Bun I had today instead of breakfast. My other half is going to have Cheese on Toast (MMmMmmm) and I really fancies some chips with Cheese and mayo (MmMMmMmmmM).. he's now poured himself a glass of Mead.. so instead of opening a bottle of wine ('cause its naughty this week) I am going to have a brandy before I go to bed.. still naughty, but I am doing good and I need a little drink, its been a stressful day.... (went and had, what may be my last cuddle with a dear friend, shes v ill) I also managed to avoid more naughties, so ATM my will power is good. I have eat healthily over the past few years, but havent managed to shift the weight, been looking into this GI thing, and hopefully it will be another life changing way for me. I am now at an age, where I need to look after my body, my knees are suffering from wear and tear (which may be the results of tripping up kerbs when under the influence ). My life style has changed, and for once in my life I am quite content, so the weight loss is for me and my health, so I can enjoy the rest of my life, with out the excess weight being a hinderence. Time for my drink... (I'm going to take it upstairs, and put something on the telly, before he makes toast .. with lashings of strong cheddar... and teases me.. I could just lick his lips ... noooo noooo get behind me satan)... Lets see what tomorrow brings.
