I reached a bit of a milestone this week. 10% of my body weight, gone! That’s me a quarter of the way towards my goal in only, what, 8 weeks?

Either way, I’m thrilled but this is making me a bit complacent on the ol’ dieting front. I’m thinking ‘well I’ve done really well now. I deserve a treat.’ but this is dangerous thinking. Little treats are a slippery slope to giving up completely which I do not want to do. I’ve never done this well on my own before and I am FINALLY starting to see little differences in how I look. Got some cheekbones showing again and my jeans are trying to fall down all the time. It’s a good feeling. Long may it continue.


Week 6 I guess?

Well, this was a week of ups and downs.

On Monday we went to the Revival Tour, I got 2 autographs (Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem and Dave Hause of The Loved Ones), Dave Hause kicked me in the head and Dan Andriano played a song just for me. Bliss. Easily one of the best gigs of my life and we stuck to the diet around the gig as well.

Then on Tuesday we went to see Bowling For Soup. It was the 3rd of 4th time I’ve seen them, they’re great but really couldn’t live up to the night before. Suburban Legends were an amazing support though. Sadly, on the way to Southampton, we had KFC. Husband was 30 minutes late to be picked up and there was a football match in Southampton which meant the traffic was AWFUL. I was stressed and hungry. It’s no excuse really but it’s done now.

I’ve still lost weight which is great. 8.5% of my body weight is gone now.

At the moment it feels a bit like walking up a hill backwards. It looks like I’ve traveled a long way but every time I look at the top of the hill I know I’ve still got a long way to go. It’s a little depressing.

On the plus side my amazing friend is back from her time in Afghanistan and I’ve just had a lovely catch up and walk with her. Exercise and gossip is the best way!


Week….something. I forget

And I can’t be bothered to check.

It’s been a bit over a month since I started, I know that much. I’m very happy with my progress so far. I’ve lost over 7% of my body weight so far. I don’t see any change yet in how I look but my clothes are feeling looser and a couple of people have mentioned seeing a difference which is nice.

The weekend in Cardiff went pretty well. I cheated a couple of times but tried to keep it to reasonable cheats rather than big blowouts. Also no-one burgled my house whilst I was gone which is nice. Although Benjie makes me suspicious with his Waddlenator plans.

There’s not much more to say now. I just really want to be able to see a change soon!


Week 3 1/2

I know I’m a little late posting this one (Thank you Benjie ;)) seeing as it’s Thursday already.

Most of the last week was fine for sticking to the diet, no cheating or sneaking bad food except for the BBQ we went to on Sunday.
A lovely little girl we know had her first birthday and we all got together to celebrate it. The cake looked beautiful, home made by my friends, and there was a great selection and abundance of food. Food I couldn’t eat except for a big bowl of tomatoes that I think I ate most of in the end.

My amazing friends, Vicky and Ben, had some vegetarian BBQ stuff which is much lower in fat and therefore more diet friendly which they offered to share. Very grateful to them as otherwise we’d just planned to eat very little and put up with it!

I did eat some jelly which didn’t taste sugar free but was 2 different colours so I couldn’t resist but the husband ate jelly, ice cream and a couple of slices of cake so I felt better!

My weight is fluctuating quite a bit at the moment but is staying over a 5% loss so that’s OK.

On Tuesday, I ate a hallowe’en creme egg. I don’t regret it 🙂

This weekend is going to be hard. We’re going to Cardiff for a housewarming party (please don’t burgle my house) and there will be eating and drinking and being merry.

Well, that’s it for now. Must go, the cat just got tangled in some power leads.
