Lose to win – Week 17

I’ve tried to be good this week.  Unfortunately I haven’t always succeeded.

For example I bought some chocolate flavour cereal bars to have for breakfast.  They’re really nice and at only 99 calories perfect for my calorie controlled diet – or so you would think.

Not in my case because I somehow managed to eat the whole box (there’s 4 in a box) in less than an hour – turns out the chocolate rush was just too much for me – so I won’t be buying them again.

Then I attended the UNISON Northern Region Disabled Members Policy Weekend in Durham which meant an overnight stay in a hotel.  I intended to be good and go swimming but I forgot my swimming costume.  And the Prosecco and cake were just too tempting – it was someone’s birthday so it would be rude not to.

But the rest of the time I haven’t been too bad.  So this morning I could only hope the scales wouldn’t be too unkind.

And the result is………….

12st 7

I’ve lost 1 pound.  I’m heading in the right direction.  But only just so I need to be much better this week and not take anything for granted.  After all a couple of weeks ago it looked like I might hit my target by June but that’s now looking increasingly unlikely.

But at least it’s another £1 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation.  And with no special occasions expected this week hopefully the results will start to improve again.

If you’re impressed with my success you can add to my £’s for pounds at www.justgiving.com/5iftyby5ifty or to donate by phone text FIFB50 £1 to 70070
