So, this post is a bit late and is coming 3 days after my weigh in. This week I lost 5lbs which brings my total to 16lbs, however as I said in my video I have been sick this week and had a couple of days not eating which I know contributed to my weight loss and knew I had to be careful to not put any weight on and ensure that I still had a loss in the coming week.
So knowing all this, have I been sensible? Well, no I haven't and I'm really kicking myself over it now. I wen out on Saturday night as it's my sister's birthday today and did relatively well with my alcohol, I stuck to disaronno and diet coke and had one cherry sourz and diet coke. So after the alcohol I knew I was over my syn allowance but wasn't too worried as I had steered clear of wine, beer and cider all night. However, I went into the takeaway at the end of the night and had a cheeseburger and shared chips and garlic bread with cheese with my friends. When I woke up Sunday morning I was so disappointed with myself and am now worrying over a big gain on Thursday.
As it's my sister's birthday today we were going to go out for dinner (lunch) so I knew wherever she choose I could control this by having a salad or something that was predominantly vegetables. However, she has now decided she wants to have an Indian takeaway in the evening.
So, now I am going to plan what I will have and stick to it. Looking through my Slimming World information I have decided to do my own boiled rice (free) and have a lamb or chicken rogan josh (6.5syns for 360g) I will miss the naan bread and poppadoms but I need to make sure I'm on track for this week.
These are the times I hate most with diets when I have messed up and can't fully enjoy celebrations with my family and friends as most of the celebrations revolve around food and alcohol. Does anyone else struggle with birthday celebrations?
