Diet update

November 30, 2009

Why are trousers in the same same size so different depending on where you buy them? I’m moaning because I’m struggling to find trousers that fit. My size 20s are finally relegated to a vacuum packed bag under the bed (I’m not throwing any of my ‘fat’ clothes for a few years, just in case). My Evans size 18s are way too big, one pair of Dotty P size 18s are too big. I do have another pair of Dotty P size 18s that are much smaller. I tried them on a couple of weeks ago but had to reject them as camel toe is so not a good look. This morning though – perfect! Yay! Hopefully soon I’ll be abl to chuck these under the bed too ready for some brand new size 16s!

Anyway, back to the point. This morning I am……12 stone 10.5lbs! 1.5 down. Not a big loss, but a loss nonetheless. To be honest it could have been a lot worse. I had a run in with a couple of potato cakes on Wednesday and then yesterday the Christmas spirit overcame me to the tune of 1 Galaxy Mistletoe kisses and 2 mini chocolate yule logs.  Bollocks.  What I find really hard is going to my parents on a Friday with Sam. My Dad owns a deli/cafe in Congleton (Bread & Basil on the main street folks, lovely fresh produce, please pop along!) and brings home the most incredible food. This week it was german smoked ham, Welsh Dragon pate (venison & chilli), Jarlsberg cheese (my favourite), cream cheese stuffed sweet peppers, stuffed olives (a particular weakness of mine) strawberry cheesecake, chocolate fudge cake and apple pie. I wanted to cry looking in that fridge. I managed to satisfy the urge to eat everything with some ham, a teeny tiny touch of Jarlsberg, one olives and 1 sweet pepper. Not bad for me.

I’m not sure ‘shaming myself thin’ is going well. Maybe a few comments along the lines of ‘Stop filling your fat face and get your over sized arse into gear’ might help. Or they might make me cry. Tough call.

Next week should be better. My Dad has promised to only bring home meat on Friday rather than yummy cheese, homemade coleslaw or cakes. My essays are due in this week (which is why I’ve not been around much the last couple of weeks) so I’ll have time to get on the exercise bike again. There might be a hiccup on Thursday as we at work have decided to have a wander up to the Christmas Markets for lunch. I’ll try to stick with bratwurst but with Belgian waffles, French crepes, Hungarian goulash, strudels and Gluwein on offer amongst lots of other gorgeous treats it’s going to be tough. Add in a friend’s birthday on Saturday night (hellooooo vodka) then I think another 1.5lbs is all I can hope for.

In the words of Ty Pennington  – let’s do iiiiit!!

    You are doing really well, and remember that a little of what you fancy stops you from having a BIG blow out… like me the other week.

      A big blowout might not be as damaging as my current mini blow out everyday!

    The main thing is that it’s going in the right direction. My weight loss is always painfully slow, like a pound a month or so. You just have to stick at it. Well done!

      Sorry! Can you imagine seeing it in the fridge every week? Hell.

    Can we do some demolition too? Maybe of the lovely salad variety?

    So proud of you xx

    No wonder it’s so hard…….only a saint??? could resist all those goodies. 1.5 is fine, it’s the right direction. Hope you get all the essays done without too much pain. That would send me to the larder every five minutes.

    Oh wow – you are doing SO well to avoid all of that (particularly the Jarlsberg) but, as a ‘recovering ed sufferer’, kind of feel obligated to do the whole – please, please don’t be too hard on yourself and keep a realistic view of you – and stop loosing weight while you are still healthy?
    Dieting scares me because I’ve never known anything else, but it does sound like you are doing it the right way and with Josie to keep an eye on you, I know nothing truely bad can happen 🙂 And therefore well done – it is not fun, and please give yourself a break over christmas 🙂 PS _ nice to meet ‘you’ – good blog 🙂

      Nice to meet you too 🙂
      I won’t go too far, I’ve got big bones & look better with some meat on me. I’m aiming for a size 12-14 so not in the skinny stages. I see a counsellor every week to address my issues with food and to make sure I don’t go too far. Don’t worry, I’ve got lots of lovely people like Josie keeping an eye on me. Thanks. xx
