Well, it's been a bit of a diffcult week emotionally with losing my job because of the government cuts and I did have a mini binge on some pancakes today, but despite that I've lost nearly 3lbs.
Mainly I think, because I've stopped eating the biscuits and hot-crossed buns. Bread really doesn't agree with me and I lose weight better if I eat most of my carbs as fruit and veg. Now to continue what I've started and make that final push for home!
I promise myself not to buy any crackers, biscuits, cakes, hot-cross buns or chocolate this week, no matter how tempted I am. And I will also increase my water intake.
It's a promise because I have a real thing about never breaking my promises. Which is why I rarely make them... so this needs a promise,

WEll, I've finally admitted to myself that I've had a really bad time over this winter with the carbohydrate cravings... part of SADs. I've put just over a stone back on since last July by eating biscuits and hot cross buns! Ouch! I haven't been tracking which is always bad for me and I really must find an alternative to the cookies and chocolate when the cravings gets me.
But I'm also happy to report that they've finally gone and I'm craving fruit and veg instead. Now it's time to get back on track, lose that extra weight and then some more. I'll also be unemployed from April 1st cos of the public sector cuts, so I have no excuse for not finding time to exercise now either. I need to get organised.
So, I have made a pledge, no cookies, chocolate or desserts in the house, cut down on the cheese and I will limit my wheat/grain intake to 2 portions a day. Plus I will get back into cycling on my recumbant bike for 10 minutes a day. Once that is achieved, hopefully by the end of April, I will start introducing some weights again and we'll see where we go from there. I would like to go swimming too but it really depends on whether I can find someone to help me as I can't go on my own because I need help in and out of the pool and with getting dried and dressed afterwards.
I also need to start clearing the rest of the stuff I'm getting rid of from the house. It's important that I keep active as when I'm busy I don't pick at food, so to that end I will be doing my jobsearches away from home and trying to find some voluntary work to do while I'm looking for a piad job that will help me with my CV.
There... So now I've made all this "public" I have to stick to it. Keep on tracking! LOL.

Well, the last few days have been pretty horrible as I've had a nasty tummy bug. The upside is that I've lost 4 kilos in 3 days after months of plateauing, so it's not all bad I suppose... which means that I'm now 14st 12lbs and just 28lbs from my goal weight. I'm trying to remember how long it is since I was this weight... probably my late teens... so maybe 35 years? Amazing!
Another thing... I look at my most recent photo and I can see my sister in it, something I never really saw before, although my daughter Katie did. She would point to one particular photo of me way back when and insist that it was my sister.

You go all winter without so much as a sniffle, then along comes summer and bang... cough, sore throat, raging headache and a nose that drips like a tap with a washer that needs replacing!
But after 7 days I can finally say I'm beginning to feel better and thankfully I haven't developed a chest infection or synositis so far... one of the joys of being asthmatic and having a bad cold.
My head still hurts, but the nose, throat and cough have eased up and I don't feel like I want to spend all my time sleeping. Sadly it does mean I've missed most of the half-term holiday, but the bonus is I finally got under 220lbs because I just didn't feel much like eating and stuck mostly to fruit, boiled eggs and toast. But the exercise regime is a mess again. LOL
Ah well, at least I can laugh about it now without hurtng my head and I will get back to it again.... next week. Today I'm just going to go out and enjoy some sunshine therapy.
I'm also happy 'cos I spun 25 today, so it has to be a good day.
