Sunday weigh-in : week #10

STILL TO GO : 15kg

Well, after last week's triumphant "I'm not obese any more" blogpost, this week I put on 400g - aaggghhhh ! But that's OK, and to be honest, I was expecting it to be worse. 400g is nothing compared to what I've lost so it's just a blip - a mini one at that.

So do I know why? Well, yes, and I was quite expecting it ! It was Pierre's birthday so we had a visit from the grandparents with a big meal ending in a gooey chocolate birthday cake. Then on the day itself we had the Bakerdays cake to eat. Then I "had to" taste very high calorie chocolate and biscuits for a review (even if I only had a small piece of each). Then Madhouse Daddy Mike bought me - gasp - Ben & Jerry's ice cream when he did the shopping. It would have been rude to say no after he proudly presented it to me !

So I'm considering a tiny 400g gain as a victory !!

This is probably my last weekly weigh-in for a while actually. Next week, we'll be heading off to the airport for a fortnight in Tunisia. I'll try to eat lots of salads and fresh fruit but I'm on holiday and I want to sample the local delicacies at the buffet and take advantage of the free cocktails by the pool so I won't beat myself up if I come back with a couple of kilos "excess baggage" ! (Hopefully not too much though !)

And after that, we'll probably be visiting the in laws in Brittany and my parents in Hastings so I won't be able to check my weight with my normal scales. Whatever my weight come September, I won't be beating myself up - I'll just be jumping back on the healthy eating bandwagon with a fab loss behind me to boost me on.

  6. Wow you are doing well! I am a Slimming World member and Wednesday gone I finally got my stone award :) Was so proud!!! I am off t Ibiza in just over 4 weeks and still have 2 stone to lose befre Ill be happy, but I am so chuffed to be going away over a stone lighter! Some weeks it's a real drag, but on the whole I lose much more than I gain so that can't be a bad thing! Keep up the good work. x
