Day 24. Another pound down! I can't quite believe it. In my head I signed up & committed to 28days and fantasised about loosing 2stone in that time. In my heart I never really thought it was possible and now I'm 6lbs off that!! It's amazing. My 28days is up on Monday. I haven't been as committed as I could have been but I haven't beat myself up about it and the food I have eaten, has been meat/protein and veggies. I really wanna give the next few days a really good go and seriously stick to plan. But I do struggle over the weekends. With the husband about eating lovely things! Anyway, I will get a good day under my belt today & tomorrow. Saturday & Sunday I will take as they come and hit them with the best intentions...
Royal visit yesterday was fine. After all the cleaning they just stayed an hour! AND I'd baked, not just for them, but I didn't tell them that! Neither of them touched one of my blueberry muffins!!! Anyway, it was fine. Dad didn't comment on my weight at all, but mentioned how he thought my husband had gained weight!!! Just goes to show doesn't it!!
As always ladies, thx for your support and positive comments. It does seem we all have a relative who feels the need to comment on our weight!
Ironically I had my 7mth old weighed yesterday at the clinic and he clocked in at 21lb 4! It's mental to think I've lost more than he weighs - cause he is a dumpling!!!
Anyhows, have super days. Talk soon
Hopingtobesmallersoon said:Day 33. I drank last night, the best part of a bottle. It's true what they say, you should avoid alcohol because it weakens your will power. It did mine, we had a take away in the end (just chicken tikka for me with cheese & spinach) but I drank most of the bottle of wine and a significant amount of chocolate. Which had nuts in it, not sure why I went for that, I guess I thought at least it was providing something good !! Anyway, hubby and I were talking and one thing led to another, the take away took ages to arrive and before I knew it, I drank the bottle. And it stayed there for a while, until about 530am this morning, when I was sick !! I'm kind of glad really, as it was a load of crap to put in my body, I'm glad it didn't stay. I do feel rough today thou !! I am really struggling at the weekends. I'm going to order some more bits so I have more of a variety of flavours and things. Perhaps that will help. I bought a suede too, so that should mix up the veggies a bit too ! Hopefully once the weekend is over, I will find my will power again and get my head down, bringing on the 13's for me on the scales. That would be amazing. And I would have lost 2stone too which is brilliant !
I'm going to get my sisters Cambridge stuff. Have been thinking about refeeding a lot and reading the various threads about girls doing it. The most positive info seems to be with the cambridge system, so am going to get my hands on that and have a read. I'm not going to start yet, I'm really only nearly half whay through, but forewarned is forearmed isn't that the saying ? I am definitley going to stay on S&S in some kind of way. I have my birthday round the corner (November) then we have Christmas & New Year, we also have some big parties next year and a big family wedding in July. My neice has also just got engaged, it wouldn't suprise me if they decided t get married next year. All these events are reasons to keep my weight in check so I can look lovely.
Also. Last night amongst the wine & take away there was a lot of talk about another baby. It's the first conversation my husband & I have had which has been positive to having another baby. We have one of each now and he sees the family as complete. But I don't, I don't feel ready to not have a baby in my life. Of course my two will always be my babies and I love them more & more each day; so much it is beyond words. But, I don't feel my family is complete yet. I was in my 15's (stone) when I feel with both my babies. It would be amazing to be pregnant and not so heavy - again, another reason to keep my weight in check for another 10mths or year or so !
So. To summaries. Not brilliant with my food, but my head is in the zone, for the long hall !
Hopingtobesmallersoon said:Hi BB. Yes the hangover didn't kill me, but it hard when you have little ones. No peace with a headache!! It didn't do the diet many favours. It sabatotaged my will power and I had things over the whole weekend which I really shouldn't have. Perhaps if i hasn't felt so weak, I would haven't have eaten them. As a result it's taken me 3 days to get back to my lowest weight from last week!! I hope now I have it out or my system, I can stick to my plan and lose the 2lbs I need to, to get into the 13st's. Can't wait to see that on the scales I tell you!!
I also had a delivery last week of the eBay slim & save shakes, the ones which have dodgy sodium in them, just one of each flavour. Anyway, I've been wisking them up in the blender and they are really nice. Cookies and Cream was delicious, raspberry was nice. Still have the toffee to go but I have high hopes. So much so I ordered a load more!! Bargain at the price - 30 shakes for £30 inc p&p! Looking forward to them arriving tomorrow/Friday Yum!
Today is day 37 I think! And I have lost 26lbs to date!! We have friends for dinner Saturday, I'm cooking coq au vin, with mustard mash, broccoli & peas followed by apple pie, custard and cream. The apple pie is a modern funky recipe tho which is a cake, with sliced apple on top. Kinda cool I thought. I'll have chicken & broccoli only. And maybe some olives!! I'm so desperate to get to the 13's I don't think I sway too far off plan this weekend! My friend is also pregnant, so won't be drinking which means I won't be bothered either and after last weekend. I can't imagine a need for booze again soon!
So that's me up to date! Talk soon
