Here I was thinking that I had made some fantastic choices over the past week. It turns out that I definitely need to make even better choices for next week! Blimey…. It is definitely not an easy task to lose this weight.
Maybe instead of having half of a large papaya, I could have a quarter? Look at this size of half (shock…horror)!
Definitely, no hot chocolate, even if I use Soya or Almond Milk and add no sugar and only have it as a treat. I had planned to have a hot chocolate once a month as I found the most luscious combination (hot chocolate with peanut butter) from Whittards of Chelsea. Not going to happen for a while. 😣
Well, I did promise to update you on my weigh-in this week. Dang it, Dang it, Dang it! I have to report that I have gained 1.5 lbs!
Thursday 13 October: Start Weight: 13 stones / 5 lbs (down from 13 stones / 10 lbs)
Today (Thursday 20 October): 13 stones / 6.5 lbs (up by 1.5 lbs on last week).
Normally, I would be giving myself a right mental beating for a few days. Today, however, I have decided to take the gain, reflect on why I gained and set myself a new week’s target and aim to beat it on my next weigh-in (even if I am thinking of chowing down on some chocolate cake to sooth my disappointment this week).
Target for next week’s weigh-in (Friday to Thursday) = -4 lbs.
