So then I accepted a diet challenge…

Posted on

Anyone who knows me, knows I cannot stick at diets.  My previous two attempts have resulted in a 7lb loss and then me getting disillusioned and then drunk.

I crashed onto the bathroom scales on Monday morning, and was shocked to see I was the heaviest I had been (excluding pregnancy) ever (give or take 5lbs).  I had also been feeling (and looking) bloated, chosing clothes was a nightmare as everything doesn’t quite fit properly and looks different on as its stretched around a lardier physique.

So, seizing  the opportunity of feeling disgusted with myself, I re-joined Weightwatchers online and set off on another diet.  I also saw a nifty challenge called ‘Loose 2st by Christmas’.   Never one to normally engage in any ‘target’ motivators, this one hit the mark,  I would have a deadline and something to achieve.  I joined this challenge a bit after their beginning, but the aim was 2lb per week, which would put me on track for a 1.5 stone loss by 19th December! Imagine that! My target loss and looking like a foxy minx with the mince pies and mulled wine!

So I’m doing it, and I pray to Rosemary Connolly that I stick to it this time.  I am on day three and I already feel really good, less bloated and the WW plan is easy to track online and the ProPoints thingy they do means you can have a treat on a weekly basis.  A glass of wine is only 2 points (I think a G&T with slimline is only 1!) but I am definitely not drinking in the week and am toying with the idea of 11 weeks off the booze until Christmas as well….

I know! I’ve changed!

I wish me every success in my endeavour to become less of a woman 😉

Diet schmiet

Why the bloody hell am I not Kate Moss yet?  Its been weeks! (well 2.5 actually) AND I have not cheated and I do exercise!… all the things I preach. 4lbs in two and a half weeks. Crap.

Twitter has been down for an hour and I was really beginning to hyperventilate, which is another addiction to add to my collection. I really felt like I didn’t know what was going on! How sad?

I have made a resolution though, that I am not going to use the Diet word anymore. I am boring myself with my need to lose a stone and its all not good.

From now on I will do (and NEVER mention again) thus

  • Only drink on weekends – and only more than two glasses if it’s a social event (should be alright, only have about 1 every other month)
  • I will exercise every other day, the bare minimum being an hours dog walk – which actually means EVERY day)
  • I will try to give up sugar. I have given up semi-skimmed to drink water-milk (skimmed) so I know I am tough enough to do this.
  • I will not buy any crap foods for chez moi. If anyone else wants crap they can buy it and eat it on the doorstep or it will go in the bin with washing liquid squirted over it.
  • I will stick to 20pts a day and not waiver – AND not eat the points I bank through exercise, otherwise its a waste of getting lycra on.
  • I will never mention the word DIET or weight loss again.

I am sure that the last point ACTUALLY will be a big fat lie. Because *IF* I am successful I will be bleating on about my success and perfectness for months.

Anyway, think I am going to have to take the office christmas decs down as no other bugger will.

*Still* hanging in our office window... saddos
