Weigh In No 4

Been to group tonight and have lost another pound.  Am really quite chuffed with that, as its the time of the month so have been feeling bloated all week.  I also treated myself to a chinese last week, had chicken chow mein, which is ok on SW as its noodles and chicken, but I also had prawn toast.  Have learnt my lesson there, I didn't need the prawn toast, but crammed it in anyway, and left myself feeling sick and horrible for the rest of the night.

I also had my works Xmas lunch yesterday, which was a 3 course meal, so to have still lost a pound i'm happy.  (I had soup of the day which was broccoli, risotto with ham, peppers & onions, and tiramisu for pudding, which was worth having.  It tasted so good, food tastes so much better when you wait and look forward to it, rather than having it all the time (I ate cakes by the packet before SW - 2 cream cakes wouldn't last long with me!)

My friend Catherine, who comes with me, lost 4lbs this week, so 12.5 in total.  I think we've both done fabulously well.  When we joined just 4 weeks ago, I was going to set a target of losing a stone before Xmas but thought that would be too big a target, but i've smashed that by 6.5 lbs :))

Holy S#!t!

Ha ha, sorry, but that sums up exactly what I thought when I stood on the scales tonight!  I've lost another 6 lbs this week!  That's 19.5 lbs in 3 weeks.  Wow!  I'm starting to wonder if my limbs are falling off in my sleep or something!

I didn't stick exactly to plan on Friday and Saturday as was feeling very ill, with flu like symptoms, but it wasn't full blown flu as I could move about!  But I have been sticking to it the rest of the time.  Even ordering in takeaways on a Friday for the family, while still being good myself!  I am going to treat myself to a chinese tomorrow night though, think I've earned a chicken chow mein!

Wow Again!

Ha ha, couldn't think of a better title!!  I lost another 3.5 lbs this week (ooooh so close to a stone!).  So 13.5 lbs in 2 weeks, can't grumble at that!  Am so pleased, have surpassed what I thought I could do before Xmas.  People have asked what the point is in joining SW just before Xmas, but I think this proves I have done the right thing.  Otherwise, I would have been joining in January, weighing more that I have ever done in my life, and possibly 2 stones heavier than I am now.

I've had a very positive week.  Things aren't getting me down as much, I haven't had any tears this week, and no feelings of hopelessness, or anything negative really.  So all's good!!

Bring on that one little 1/2 a pound next week for a stone off!  Pretty please god of the scales?!!

Oh, and I got Slimmer of the Week in class too :D
