Last week I was annoyed with a slight gain on the scales but I’m feeling fine about it now as I actually started my period that same day and I feel that had a fair bit to do with it.
Now, as anyone who knows me would tell you, me on a period is not a good thing when it comes to weight loss. I crave all the bad things and I often find myself in a mardy enough place to eat them … which is what I did this time around. I didn’t buy in my usual array of snacky crap so there wasn’t too much opportunity to snack in the house, but there has been take-away pizza, a Saturday night Nando’s with the hubby and a large family meal out with my hubby’s mum which also consisted of a giant slab of cake-away. The meal was a chicken curry with naan, poppadom, rice and chips and the cake was chocolate marble with chocolate buttercream icing and Skittles on top. One positive has come from that meal out though – I won’t be tempted by that cake again as Skittles on a chocolate cake is just a bit too bizarre for my liking!
After the week I’ve had I wasn’t expecting a loss at all so imagine my surprise when I found myself 1.4 lbs lighter this morning! I’ll take it!!!
Here’s hoping for another loss this week…
