After my weigh in last week and being oh so close to the next stone bracket, I went away from group feeling more determined than I have been recently; I think I’ve finally managed to get my head back in the game after not being with it for so long after the Christmas period (yes, it’s taken that long!). I’ve also started back with meal planning which I find really helps, as well as overcooking and freezing for those nights when we are out a bit late or I just cannot be bothered to cook.
I managed to stay on plan all week, other than when we had an impromptu visit to Pizza Hut on Friday evening. The boys and hubby had pizza, but I went for the salad main course and filled my plate with lots of speed! I may have had a little bit of pasta too, but I figured it was much better than pizza… So, it was going well until I glanced at the dessert menu and saw the words ‘salted caramel’ – I just cannot resist those words! So I ended up with a HUGE ice cream milkshake. Oops. After that I kept my syns on the low side just to try and pull it back a bit and still get a loss.
I managed quite a few Insta meals last week too!
Weigh in time! I went to group feeling a teeny bit nervous as I really didn’t want a gain yet again, I just want that number to keep going down now. After Friday, I wasn’t sure I would actually manage the 1lb off but when I stepped on the scales it showed a 0.5lb loss which I was quite relieved with! It does mean I still haven’t managed to reach the next stone bracket yet, but hopefully next week! I also lowered my target by a few pounds, so when I reach target I have the lower half of the 9 stone to ‘play’ in.
