Weigh In #18

So the diet holiday has ended. Today I am back on it!

This week has been the "Big Eat Up" where we have enjoyed as many of the edible gifts as we could before weigh in today. It wasn't as easy as in past years! For me, it's clear that I cannot eat as much as I used to. I get full much quicker. I feel stuffed and uncomfortable now, and I never used to. We have NOT been able to eat everything! We still have a bit of Christmas Cake left (that will go today and be pointed), we still have some chocolate biscuits, Thorntons chocolates, and about 6 packets of Jaffa Cakes left too - and that's just our stuff, I'm not counting the kids chocolate as we don't touch theirs. So what's left is going to be eaten slowly and sparingly - and pointed! Sunday treats, a tasty tid-bit on a day with low points. I think I might enjoy them more for being a spaced out treat!

The only thing I need to worry about it now is temptation..... knowing that chocolate is in the house has always been a problem for me.

The Hubby got on the scales today. It's the first time since before Christmas. And it told him he had gained 9 lbs. He's not happy, but he's not about to chuck himself off a bridge either.We know where it's come from: mostly cheese! He reasons that it's 3 lb a week over Christmas Diet Break and that's not too bad. Personally I think it will drop off him again pretty quickly now that we're back on Weight Watchers.

My weigh in was a gain this week, 2lb. Not great but it could have been much much worse. Over three weeks I have gained 3lb, lost 3lb, and gained 2lb again. A total 2lb gain over the Diet Holiday. I am pretty happy with that!

Weigh In:  
  • Me: +2 lb
  • Hubby: +9 lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013: 53lb
  • 2 lb gain overall on a 3 week diet break... not bad!

Things I have learned this week: 
  • Binge sessions are not as fun as they used to be
  • 6 boxes of Jaffa Cakes now looks daunting instead of thrilling (never saw that coming!)
  • 3 weeks is too long for a diet break, I should have stuck to 2 weeks (4 weeks would have broken me!)

Targets for this week: 
  • Lose 1lb or more
  • Go for 2 good walks
  • Get back on the Wii Fit

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
