I gave up sugar. I gave up dairy. I gave up alcohol. I gave up wheat. 1 week later I had also given up 8 pounds of fat. Yes, I weighed 8 pounds less tonight than I did this time last week. I am so delighted. The diet mojo is back 🙂
Breakfast; leftovers from dinner last night. I could have eaten all of this last night but I am trying really hard to eat less so I put a portion aside for breakfast today. Brown Basmati rice, mushrooms, red pepper, spinach, kale and roast pork with a little soy sauce and Cholulah. Nothing weird about eating stir fried pork, rice and vegetables for breakfast !
The sun was out briefly at lunch time. Still windy though which is becoming very annoying. Lunch was a salad. Chicken and prawns with lettuce, roasted peppers, bean sprouts, cashew nuts and a spicy Thai dressing.Before dinner I went to the Leisure Centre to be weighed. I knew I had been good so I was very optimistic. It was still a huge relief to see those numbers coming up on the scales. I raced home to share my good news with my supportive family and had a celebratory sweet treat – an apple 🙂
Dinner; half a baked potato, a large dollop of my homemade hummus, some minced beef cooked with onion, red pepper and lots of spinach plus a side salad made with pea shoots, salad leaves, celery and tomatoes.
I am very happy.
That is crazy man! 8lbs in 7 days?!!! You must’ve been SOOOO angelic! So happy for you (and envious!)…xxx
I was completely brilliant 🙂
Big thumbs up, Mrs B :0)
Thank you very much – I appreciate the support 🙂
Well done xx
Wonderful news congrats great start to the new year and the diet xxxx
It’s time for the Happy Dance Kitty to show up. Celebrate, Celebrate, Dance to the Music! Woohoo Zoe on the healthier eating, feeling better and trying to change your eating habits. I can’t say the stir-fry, especially with pork would do my taste buds and singing for breakfast. Congratulations on releasing 8 lbs for your valiant effort to get back on tract to where you were before. Congratulations on getting back up and trying again.
Thank you Laura, as always for your support. An essential part of my motivation is tracking the weigjt loss. I now go to the local sports centre where they have electronic scales. They broke in Nov and I was so demotivated an I completely over ate! Ridiculous . I plan to go there every Tuesday and weigh in.
Zoe, that is what I put basically on the cover page of the changed Mile A Day in 2013 to https://www.facebook.com/MADMile4Health. “Accountability Loves Support”. Weighing in and becoming accountable is a huge motivator. You can do this Zoe. Just keep focusing on how much better you feel mentally and physically. It affects everything you do in life.
Hugs across the miles.
Congratulations Zoe – a fantastic achievement. Well done. You must be feeling really pleased with yourself. Lots of love gx
I do feel pleased. Thank you for your support.
