Despite my 4lb gain on Thursday I still spent the next few days eating and drinking without pointing.

I was out for a meal on Thursday night and had garlic bread and a tuna melt with chips but I drove so didn’t drink-until I got home that is!

Friday we had lunch out at a play area and had tuna mayo cheese buttie-on white bread! with chips. I also have a terrible habit of having a cup of tea and a kitkat when we go there-a 4 finger kitkat too not a 2 one.

Friday night was wine and cheese, Saturday started well but it was the one day I was allowing myself a mince pie with my Baileys thick double cream-I guesstimated it was about 20 smart points! A trip to my mums saw me eat about 5 chocolates from a box of heroes and for NYE we stayed in so it was cheese wine and crackers.

I woke feeling very ropey yesterday morning and my body couldn’t decide if I was hungry or just absolutely full to the brim.

I had some spread cheese on toast-light which I promptly threw back up. We went to my mother-in-laws for lunch and she gave me some tonic water to settle my stomach. this enables me to eat a large vegetable samosa before lunch. Lunch was pretty carb heavy. Everyone else had chicken but she had done me a large jacket potato served with a tomato and cheese pasta. She also had a dahl which was delicious. I ate the jacket, left most of the pasta (although I ate some as I didnt want to appear rude or ungrateful). She gave me 2 mini naans to go with the dhal-there was rice out but I don’t like it. I had one of the naan breads. This was followed by a large piece of viennetta then the tub of roses came out. I honestly lost count of how many I had. It was quite ridiculous.

We watched a film last night-Girl On A Train, nowhere near as good as the book just incase you were wondering-this involved yet more wine and cheese because I knew it was my last night of being a pig.

I dread to think how much more weight I have put on since Thursday. I always pile it on when I have chocolate. I can go over on cheese and wine and (sometimes) get away with it but chocolate always hits the scales. I’m feeling very fat and bloated and I’m back on track today. I have got a brand new Weight Watchers journal (I love the new journal and have enjoyed filling it in to get me focussed) and planned meals for the week. I don;t get weighed until Friday so here’s to some damage limitation

Looking Back To Move Forward

The end of this week marks the end of my 10 week journal. With only one weigh in remaining I flipped to the front to see what goal I had set myself only to discover that (going off last weeks weigh in) I’m 1.5lb heavier than I was at the start of the journal!

So, I had two options:
1-berate myself for being a ‘failure’ OR
2-acknowledge that in those 10 weeks I had Christmas/New Year, 2 friends 40th plus my own 40th party week and had a great time plus got back on track when I needed to.
Friday (well Saturday as we know that what we eat on weigh in day doesn’t count 😉 ) will be the start of a new 10 week journal which takes me to the third week in May and the week before I am a bridesmaid for my sister.
So this time when I write my end goal for those 10 weeks not only will I look back at this journal and at the meals I enjoyed that kept me on track and the weeks where I have blank pages or a big X with ‘write off’ wrote on it (you know you do it:) )and learn from it but also look at my weight loss since I started because to move forward it sometimes helps to look back
