I have been absolved!
IT seems I wasn't such an animal over last weekend as I'd thought. You'll all be delighted to hear (I'm sure!) that at my Weightwatchers weigh-in on Thursday evening I'd lost 2.5lbs.
I was sure I was destined to be an enormous hippo forever, so I'm glad that it hasn't come to pass just yet! So I've just a half a pound to go before I'll hit the half-stone gone mark and I'll get my 'silver seven'. Am not QUITE sure what that is, but I'm sure I'll find out at the next meeting. I'm slightly scared in case it's some sort of initiation procedure and I'll have to eat celery or something (the food of the devil), but we'll see!
Anyway, to celebrate actually losing some weight and not putting any on as I had imagined, I went straight home and did some sit ups, then went for a walk around the park, then.....ok ok, I didn't do ANY of those things.
In fact I went to the chipper.
There, I've said it. Yes, I bought an enormous bag of chips and chicken burger and I devoured every bite! It was like I hadn't seen food for a year, I understand there's a woman in the chipper still off on sick leave because of it. She's claiming emotional distress. She'd want to try sitting beside a slim blonde on the bus happily eating her way through five pounds of creamy chocolate. Then she'd know ALL about emotional distress!
Since I started this WW mularky I've been seeing food EVERYWHERE! And everywhere I look there seems to be young, slim, beautiful things tucking into dinners that'd put a rugby player to shame. And they're all laughing at me too, waving pieces of fried chicken and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate puddings at me...ok, maybe I'm making that last bit up but you get the drift!
Anyway, this is the longest I've ever stuck to a diet, so I think I'm going to hang on in there and see how next week and the next few weeks go. I think the family Christmas pictures won't be such a disaster this year!
Thanks for all the messages of support! (And if you haven't left me a supportive message yet, then do...remember I know where you live!)
