Lose to win – Week 19

It’s been a busy week.  With getting everything sorted for the Street Party

bringing my son home from University for the summer and a busy week at work dieting wasn’t really my top priority and was often at the back of my mind.  I’ve had a few minor blips but in the whole I think I’ve managed to be good.

So as I went through to get weighed this morning I was hopeful, though not particularly confident.  And the result is……..

12st 4

I’ve lost another pound and have now lost all the weight I put on a couple of weeks back.  But what it is showing me is that the old myth that the final half stone is the hardest to lose is actually true.

Anyway it’s another £1 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation, hopefully the first of many this week, and another step on the way to reaching my goal of 2 stone by my birthday in August.

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

And don’t forget if about the Street Party.  Everyone’s welcome and all the money raised will go to the Charlie Cookson Foundation.  You can find out more or let me know you’ll be coming here.

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.

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
