Lose to win – Week 16

Diet wise it hasn’t been a good week.  After gaining 1 pound last week I found it really difficult to get back on track.

I felt frustrated at work and irritable at home and as is often the case I ate lots of the wrong things.  Then of course there was the weekend to cope with.

I was in Stevenage for a UNISON meeting all weekend.  And while Stevenage isn’t really my favourite place it was a chance to catch up with some of my favourite people.  But of course this involved far too much food as well as a good few glasses (or maybe I should say bottles) of prosecco.

The hotel we stay in is always really friendly but the food can sometimes be a bit hit and miss.  But this weekend it was fantastic.  So with full cooked breakfast, two course lunches and three course dinners including this fabulous Ganache served with Bailey’s custard



I was fairly sure that the scales weren’t going to be kind to me when I got weighed this morning. And the result is…..

12st 8lb 2

I was right.  It wasn’t good.  I’ve gained three pound! My highest weight gain week since I trying to lose weight.

What I really don’t understand is why it takes weeks or maybe even months to lose three pound but it only takes a couple of bad days to put the same amount on.

But I’m not disheartened.  This might be the most I’ve ever put on in one week but it does mean £6 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation so at least a really good cause is going to benefit from my failure.

If you’d like to commiserate with me on my weight gain or encourage me to get back on track then please add to my £’s for pounds at www.justgiving.com/5iftyby5ifty
