Last week I was in Brighton so didn’t have a weigh-in. I was there for UNISON’s Local Government and National Delegate Conferences so eating healthy wasn’t either easy or my top priority. I did try – well for about half an hour anyway.
So when I stepped on the scales yesterday morning I new it was pretty much going to be a disaster. After all I’ve eaten chips, burgers, ice cream, sweets, chocolate, cake, pastries, hot dogs, cooked breakfasts and much, much more. All washed down with Prosecco, full fat lemonade and a range of other high calorie drinks.
And the result is……………………..
I’ve gained 6 pound. That’s almost half a stone and in just two weeks. It is an absolute disaster. The only silver lining is that it means I’ll be donating £12 to the Charlie Cookson Foundation and that can only be a good thing.
But now I’ve only got 5 weeks left until my birthday and I’ve got 12 pound to lose if I’m to hit the 2 stone by 5 August. So this week I’m not only back on the diet but being extremely strict with myself because this is one challenge I am determined I won’t fail.
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
