Best half a lb ever!
I weighed in this morning. Now I must admit, that I'm at Dad's house so these are his scales not mine, and although they are exactly the same make and model as mine, and were in fact bought on the same day from the same shop, it is possible there's a slight variance between them and mine. Also, I'm having a day off work, so I'm weighing in a little later than usual.
But screw that - because that half a lb lost this week means I officially hit a new lowest weight to date!!!! It breaks me out of that endless cycle I've been stuck in for so long and gives me something to fight for next week :-) So entirely accurate or not - I'm taking it!
I'm especially happy with that considering the sheer volume of eating out that happened last week.
One thing I have struggled with still, is not wanting to waste food and chuck it out. I'm feeling much better about making choices to balance my diet, so eating a really light tea because I've had lunch out, kind of thing. But I absolutely hate wasting food that's in the fridge because it will go off if u don't eat it.
I left work later than I meant to yesterday, which was a nightmare a I had to get home and pack for the evening and then I was supposed to be getting Bec's birthday present from John Lewis on the way back to Malvern. I needed a really quick dinner and it was a choice of either doing mushrooms on toast quickly or grabbing the leftover pizza - I chose the pizza as it would have gone of over the weekend otherwise. Fine - since I had enough points to cover it. Not so fine, that I then grabbed the last muffin from last weekend too. You know what? It didn't even taste that fresh anymore - I totally should have just binned it. Must learn!!!
I'm off for a weekend in Wales with friends for Bec's birthday this evening. I'm really looking forward to it, but also really want to make it a great weekend on the eating / exercising front too, so I must remember to keep tracking and not go crazy. Might be a bit of a challenge as apparently there's no mobile phone reception up at the cottage so I'm not sure my Weightwatchers app will work - fingers crossed! I'll have to go old-school and track on paper or something otherwise!
Have a great weekend people!
