AWOL (again)

Mmm so I seem to have been a little bit missing in action.  The last month or so has been very up and down. I fell off the wagon, and despite running along behind it for 3 weeks, it took me a while to get back on again.

I missed two weigh ins, so by the time I went back I hadn't been to class for 3 weeks, and I didn't really try in those 3 weeks.  Went back to my bingeing ways, eating anything and everything.  I was dreading weigh in, really felt i'd have put about 10-14 lbs back on.  Anyway, big sigh of relief, I only gained 1.5 lbs (phew).  I had been feeling emotional and all over the place, so I got upset in class, hence being given hugs and tissues! Then Lisa (the consultant) asked if I would like to be "buddied" up with someone for the week, and straighaway a lovely lady, who is at her target weight, said she's help me.  Her name is Mel and she has been a star all week.  We have text every day with our menus for the day, and we've also kept in touch on FB.  I have been ill for most of the week, which meant I didn;t eat very much for 2 days (Tues and Thurs).  Back for weigh in, and i'd lost a huge 7 lbs.  Although very pleased with that, I will take it with a pinch of salt, as theres every chance I may gain a little back this week, now my appetite has reappeared.

Feeling a little more focused and back on track now.  I think i'm up to 2 st 10 lbs lost  :)


  1. Glad to see you back Gem. Sorry you've had a rough Feb (seems a few people, myself included, have. Boo)
    Well done on getting back on it, and yay for buddy Mel!

  2. Great you are back and your buddy Mel sounds like a real gem. A gem for Gem.
