Introducing Twiggy!

AND the winner iiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssss..............ME!


Went to my first WeightWatchers weigh-in tonight and I've lost four pounds. Anyone who read my previous posts would know that I was hoping to lose three, so I'm over the moon with four. I know it's a small amount and I've still a long way to go, but it's a start!

A friend told me that a two litre bottle of coke weighs 4.5lb, so I've almost lost that...and man those things are heavy! (Mmmmmm coke, sweet delicious fizzy life giving coke!)

As well as watching what I eat, I also have to monitor what I drink as fizzy drinks, alcohol and milky drinks can add points. So after a long hard think, I gave up drinking coke. It's been a nightmare as I don't like Diet Coke (I just feel it's wrong! Diet Coke comes from the Devil himself!) and I've even had the jitters and terrible headaches, but I'm determined to stick to it.

So it's seven days and counting. I'm filled to the brim with Diet 7up. I think I should just have my wages direct debited into the 7up company's account! But I shall persevere.

Roll on next week!

Tonight, tonight, we'll always have tonight.........

TONIGHT is the night. D-Day. The Big Kahuna. The night to end all nights. The night we will all remember for at least the rest of the week, if not our lives. Yes ladies and gentlemen, tonight is my first official weigh-in after following the WeightWatchers programme for one week.

If I haven’t lost weight I’m going to beat my leader to death and then go to the chipper.

Without sounding like a martyr (though, St Kaz does have quite the ring to it) I have stuck rigidly to ‘the plan’. I have not eaten more points than I was supposed to, I have not eaten crisps, chocolate, take-away food, fried food, full-fat food or indeed any food that wasn’t in my little WW booklet.

I have eaten copious amounts of fruit, vegetables, salad, lean chicken, WW ready meals, low-fat cheese, milk and soups and the only sweet things I have ingested have been WW chocolate mousses and cookies.

I’m fit to kill.

There’s a bag of Doritos in our house that have been there for about two weeks. I kept meaning to get around to eating them pre WeightWatchers and now it’s too late. They call to me though. When I’m in bed at night, I hear them. “Kazzzzzzzz, Kazzzzzz eat us, eat us now. We’re deee-leeee-shush [they speak in a Mexican accent obviously]” But they’re about 500 points so I can’t. I’m going to get Mammy Dunne to throw them away, I just don’t think I can be present for the cull. Chances are I’ll dive head first into the wheelie bin after them. It’s best that I stay away.

I’m off now for a swift five-mile run around the park in a bid to sweat the fat out of me. I’ll update you later as to my progress. Keep your fingers crossed!
