Thats right folks, you read that right! 1/2 a freaking pound!
One has to wonder at the point at reading that at the scales when the woman cheerfully tells you with loads of enthusiams that you have lost half a pound if :
- its all been worth it
- you can punch her in the face – she clearly needs to work on her delivery
- can you sulk off and eat your weight in bread.
Now its my first week back at slimming world so I was hoping for more that half a pound. I didnt have a goal as such, but well even a whole pound would of been preferable to that. After eating more fruit and salad than the average person, I just feel deflated by half a freaking pound!
Now I know that its still a loss and the woman has to encourage it but she was soo overly enthusiastic it was like i had lost 7lbs, maybe she thought I wouldnt come back if she wasnt little miss cheerful? I wonder if she would have done cartwheeels if I did loose 7lbs?
I didnt sulk off and eat my weight in bread…I went and had 2 satsumas and 2 bananas, followed by a jacket potatoe with chicken curry and salad for lunch and a cheese toasty for tea and fruit through out the day. A very measured response I thought. Im still plodding on with the uni work, while trying not to eat rubbish – we have bits of this in the house….and the problem is cos im sat I want to nibble, I’m drinking loads but I cant help but wanting to eat…also nearly out of satsumas and bananas. I already ate the grapes and melon. Tomorrow is shopping day, unless I do it today to break away from the uni work, but then I’m just procrastinating more, like writing this.
