Susie's 2020 action plan

Woohoooooo despite my carby blowout yesterday, I lost 9lbs at WI this morning, so that's 1 stone 1lb loss so far :D :D.

Am really loving the flexibility of this eating plan, and I'm sure the fasting is helping the losses. Onwards and downwards!

Brunch - burger bun with 2 sossies and an egg - 550
PM - small slice quiche with salad - 350

Leaves loads of cals for whatever - but might keep it low today, or have some veggie soup.

Keep warm and dry!

I think sometimes we do need a blow out. As long as you get straight back on it next day it shouldn't do any damage.

Well done on the 9lb loss this week. Seems like this new way of eating for you is working.:)

Thanks Mary - yes I am really enjoying it, and I think because I'm not obsessing about every single calorie and having to plug it all in to My Fitness Pal, etc, it's making it a lot simpler, and easier long term - I just do a quick google and that's it done. At WI this morning I weighed myself three times - didn't believe the 9lbs - but the 2nd and 3rd weigh ins both came in at 12lbs loss! Decided to go the lower one, just in case :).

Had the hungries a bit today and ended up going over my cals today - as well as above, I had a light ready meal (300), an orange, pear, (100) and 6 rice cakes (200) with Sweet Freedom (180) on them, so I've come in just under 1700 - still not bad.

I'm also uber happy because I've made a really big, positive, decision about something that was making me unhappy and the answer was staring me in the face - funny how that happens. Will reveal all when plans are further developed :).

Oh hun I’m so proud of you, you’ve really got this and CC is the best and I fast till about 12 too! I’ve not been about lately as my health has been really bad. I’m sort of sticking to it but when you’re ill you can go from I want to eat the world to not eating for days. I’ve got in infection and that’s what got me to the hospital before and I don’t want that,I’ve had a week of antibiotics and I still have the infection. Another phone call to the doctors tomorrow. Sorry hun I’ve gone on a bit of a ramble! Hope you are ok and I’ve missed being on here and I miss you. Take care lovely xxx

Missed you too, lovely Charlotte - and I'm so sorry to hear your health has gone downhill again. After just a few months of it, i think you are the bravest person i know, to keep on keeping on, especially when there are times you feel completely rubbish (((((((big hugs)))))))).

Well it's all go here with the big decision, which is to move south again. I'm sure none of you will be surprised at that :). I've not been happy up here and can't see any point in struggling on, so it's off to the south coast, where I've wanted to live for years. i just got so focused on not having a mortgage, that was my main motivation for the move up north, but i need to be happy in the environment and with the people around me. The south coast is cosmopolitan, arty, cultural and has lots of single oldies like me - and I can't wait.

The cottage goes on the market tomorrow, London will be on in a few weeks, depending on how fast we can get a valuation done, and I'm in contact with agents down the coast for good rental properties - so i'll rent for a while, then look to buy a 1-2 bed garden flat, which will mean working until pension age but so be it.

Food today, not brilliant in terms of veg yet!
L - burger with slice of cheese, lettuce and tom - 500
D - ready meal 550
S - Asda Great Shape bars, the mint ones - 2 - very yummy - 150

Will try and have some salad later!

Hastings or close by :).

The agent up here is a fast worker, has come round and valued it already and it's going on the market tomorrow. I won't make much of a profit but she thinks it'll sell in 2-3 months, so looks like the move will be in the New Year. Can't wait.

Honestly Susie, i blink and you move house. Im sure you must still be unpacking things from Italy. But if you are now doing contract work from home then your location is irrelevant and you should be where you are happy.
Sorry the heart issue and breathlessness has come back but 3 months without smokes n drink is amazing and must be having a positive effect

Yeah I know it's like a revolving door with me on the moving front at times - but I've given it my best shot here and I'm not happy, so off we go again. I actually like change, although the physical side of packing/moving is getting harder but will recruit my next door neighbour to help! And the new area is much more me, I know it really well, got friends there already and I'm confident I'll settle much better - plus it's much closer to London in case things get bad with work and I need to commute back in.

Plus good news healthwise - the nurse thinks the awful blistery sores on my legs will be all healed in a few weeks, now we're on the right course of treatment - happy days! I'm really excited to see how losing weight will help improve the heart and breathing things - had a shower yesterday and it was SO much easier, I was able to finish without having to stop to gasp for air - so we're on the way back up to good health woohoo, after one very big lesson learned!

Menu -

L - roasted butternut, peppers, swede, carrot with a big green salad and feta (450)
D - Bolognese pasta and wilted spinach (500)
S - keeping it light today because lots of naughty things sneaked into my Asda shop yesterday and I had to sample them!

Keep warm and dry all, it's blowing a gale up here!

Well my friends things didn't go quite to plan - I had pre-made stir fry with chicken and egg noodles and got food poisoning! Been sick as a pike for 24 hours, althogh i'm much better now - and the nurse thinks I had a mild case of cellulitis again too, my leg is still a bit red so she's checking with the GP about whether it needs more antibiotics. But on the plus side, the ulcers are looking a bit better.

Menu

B - 2 pieces bread with a banana - 400 - hungry today after nothing yesterday! :)
L - sweet potato fries with roasted Med veg - 360
D - other half of lunch - 360

Might have some Muesli and yogurt/fruit later

Well that's annoying, it's confirmed that I've got cellulitis back - the GP thinks we didn't get rid of it all last time, although it's much milder than before. Explains why I just wanted to sleep all day yesterday and felt freezing cold (more than normal) - and it's better treated than left, that can be dangerous.

Oh well, museli in a bit!

Oooo no to the food poisoning and OOOOOOOOOooooo no to the cellulitis. Yep, get the antibiotics quick. And look after yourself.

Pics of the cottage should go live today hopefully!

L - salad (40) with feta (150) and oil (120) - 310
D - ready meal - about 350

Keep warm folks, it's cold out there!

Morning all - a winter sun is out, and very welcome after horrible weather for most of the last three weeks. I must try and get out in it, get some Vit D in me!

Well I am overjoyed to report that I lost 13lbs at WI this morning, for a total of two stone over the last three weeks! I'm sure the water tablets are helping that along, but a good part of it has to be the new woe, and I can't quite believe it, weighed myself three times and it was the same every time :D. What else is helping it - no pizza, not much cheese (and when I do it's usually feta), snacking on muesli bowls and fruit, eating more leafy greens - so basically all the things they tell you to do but which seems to have taken ages to sink into my little grey cells LOL. I'm still eating bread and chocolate and cookies, but in much less quantities - and I'm not going fanatical over every little calorie.

So that's the two stone I wanted to lose by the time I see the consultant next - might surprise both of us by losing another two by then!

Ooooh and it's 100 days today without cigarettes or alcohol!

Menu today -
B - coffee
L - got a big salad bowl to use up, will add some orange segments, feta and orange juice/olive oil as dressing (450)
D - chicken supreme with cheese mash - mushrooms, mustard, wilted spinach and a packet of Asda cheese and onion mash - will work out the cals later but have plenty left anyway

Have a lovely Sunday!

Thats an amazing weight loss Susie well done. And even more impressive that it was done with no cigarettes.
