Lose to win – Week 24

A day late posting but not a day late getting weighed – I just didn’t have the time to share yesterday as what was a busy weekend continued on to be a busy week – though of course the weekend was more about having fun rather than the work of yesterday.

If I’m honest the whole of last week was pretty busy and despite my promise to get back on track I found myself eating a Chinese takeaway on Wednesday – but I have to say it was worth it.

Then on Saturday I went to the Durham Miners Gala – if you’ve never been I’d definitely recommend it – it’s not all about politics but about communities coming together in a friendly and fun atmosphere.  So of course there was a few drinks and some pretty unhealthy, although very delicious, food involved.

So when I got weighed yesterday morning I  wasn’t sure what to expect.  And the result is………..

2lb lost 7 to go

2lb lost 7 to go

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as I lost 2lb.  That’s another £2 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation but I’ve still got half a stone, or 7lb, to lose in just 3 and half weeks if I’m to reach my target of losing 2 stone by my birthday.

Wish me luck – I think I’m going to need it………………………..

Lose to win – week 23

After last weeks disaster I started this week determined to stick to my diet and get back on track.  And I didn’t do too bad, at least most of the time I didn’t.  It was a bit of a tough week so by Saturday I really felt like I needed a bit of a treat.

Now the town where I live, South Shields, is home to one of the best Fish and Chip restaurants in the UK.  And don’t take my word for it. Ask Patrick Stewart, David Miliband, Alison Steadman, David Walliams, Tony Blair or even Sting because they’re just a few of the celebrities who’ve enjoy the delights served up by Colmans.

So on a rainy day, when you want to watch the summer parade without getting wet, it really is the perfect place to eat.  So off we went.  Me, my youngest son and my Grandson.  We got a table in the window and watched the parade go by.

And while I’m not a big fan of fish I do love fresh cooked chips and count myself as a bit of  a connoisseur when it comes to chicken chicken nuggets which in this case are made with big chunks of chicken.

So when I got weighed this morning I was hoping I would have lost some weight but wasn’t really convinced I had.  And the result is…………….

12st 6

A brilliant 4 pound. Which, as I followed my chips with a large ice cream, I am more than happy with.  And of course that means another £4 to the Charlie Cookson Foundation.

Lose to win – Week 21 and 22

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……………………..

12st 10lb

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
