I put on another 2.5 pounds this week (sigh).  The one good thing about that is that it's finally snapped me out of the downward spiral I was on and I'm really feeling like I can get back on track this week.  Wish me luck! :)
 
 
2 1/2 pounds on this week.  Not great but not completely unexpected as I've resolved to stop smoking which has contributed to a lot of synful nibbling!  Will try to do better next week.  Really, I will! :)
 
 
OK, Christmas is over (practically 3 weeks of being off-plan for me) so it's time to put all that behind me and make a new start from this point on.

Of course, tonight was my first weigh-in since Christmas too, and on my way there I was thinking about the previous 3 weeks, confident that I was going to have a significant gain when I stepped on the scales.

Imagine my surprise to find that I'd lost 1/2lb! Mind you, I did have the tummy bug that was going around over New Year, so I'm sure that contributed a little but still, 3 weeks of chocolates, pastries, etc etc is a lot to make up for so I'm chuffed that I've gotten off so lightly!  A friend said to me "this means you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight", which I know from past experience is absolutely NOT true.  The best way for me to continue my weight-loss journey is to get back on the Slimming World plan and STICK TO IT! :)
