WEIGHING IN TODAY. OK?
I know I should have last week, but I also know myself, and weighing in and recording a big gain would have given my motivation a huge hit.
So, I think I've done the best I can this week to at least mitigate the damage I did.
It never ceases to AMAZE me how quickly I can regain weight lost! I mean, I can go up by 3-5 kilos in just a few days!!!!
Some of that is fluid retention (cos I have THAT problem too), but still. It is gutting. And I know that to see a big gain in my WW book would have just pissed me off and made me hit the burgers, so to speak.
I don't want to fall off this wagon AGAIN.
And I won't.
I will go today and record a little loss OR a little gain. But it will be LITTLE, and I can live with that.
Either way, I'm a winner cos I am going back. Before, I would have just gone "Oh fuck it" and stopped again.
I said yesterday that wee Archer got his 1 week check up from the midwife ... well I got a couple of darling photos:
ABOVE: Awwwww.... so bloody cute.
Right now... I'm going to make me bed, tidy the kitchen, do a few other little jobs then head out to Weight Watchers.
Wish me luck... cos I have been too scared to stand on our scales. I will take whatever it is and move ... ONWARD...
They say any loss is a good loss... so... with that in mind:
I LOST a whole .100 grams this week!
Better than a gain.
This coming weekend we are going over to Tauranga to visit Lacy and Keera, and check out their new home. We shall be staying with our friends Jacqui and Marty.
My biggest challenge will be resisting all the takeaway food we shall no doubt have. Well... that THE FAMILY will have.
I am already starting to think about what I can have that won't damage my efforts to stay on track.
My mind always just thinks of Sushi when out and about. What else is 'healthy'? And don't say a bloody salad from one of those salad places in foodcourts! They give you 99% lettuce and f*#k all else, and charge you like wounded bulls!
Now. Papakura is where my WW's meeting is, so I stopped in at the local fabric shop (Fabricland) and had a rummage through their scrap box.
You get 20 pieces for $15, which is a good deal.
Their suppliers had just dropped off old samples, and it all goes into the scrap box... I got first pick.
ABOVE: 40 pieces for applique', mug rugs, blocks etc. So cool. And see that black and white 'zebra' fabric! Perfect for an applique' zebra. Rather happy to have found that piece.
ABOVE: I also got a metre of this gorgeous blue fabric. Building me stash. *smiles*
Now... it's time for a cuddle of my newest little grandson before getting dinner ready. We are having pork belly! OMG can't wait!
I did well tonight! Pork belly, mashed potatoes, kumera, carrots, brussell sprouts,broccoli, red onions, gravy and apple sauce! And all ready on time.
The family seemed to appreciate it.
End of day: I was happy with my weigh in, I was happy with dinner. Looking forward to tomorrow. I'm going over to the North Shore for a while.
