Hey gang - hope u r all well - got back from 2 wks abroad early this morning (Mon) - just thought I'd have a rant actually - I went abroad on Sun 5th and was watchin what I was eatin a week before that - I tried a non SW different way for a change, just cuttin down in general and still goin on the treadmill every day, as I wanted to get prepared for my holiday and intended still being good in Tenerife - once we got there, I joined a gym and went EVERY day on the treadmill - I felt really good and aspyed a pair of scales on the 9th day, so thought why not? I was very disappointed to see the poundage was exactly the same as when I left the UK - get this: not one crumb of cake, biscuit, donut, sauce of any kind, bread, butter etc etc had passed my lips - I had grilled fish one day, loads and loads of fruit and salads, jacket spuds, canarian spuds (no sauce) the rest, so you can imagine how flippin down I was after ALL that hard work - if I'd been eating what I wanted and indulging in holiday food, then I would have been exstatic to just remain the same weight, but to not budge below my starting weight after denying myself so much was annoying to say the least - so, after the 9th day, I even cut out alcohol and lived on diet Red Bull and coke (zzzz) - that is, until Sat and Sun when I thought sod it, 2 days left, I'll just have what I want and boy did it feel good - traditionally we have a curry the day we get home, so shall do that 2nite and be back on SW 2mrw - I dunno, we work so hard and get no results - the ONE thing I did wonder was this: an u put on muscle by pounding away on a treadmill, therefore making the scales not read what you would like (lol) ??? Yours - Disappointed of Peterborough!!!!
