A tough week.

A tough week.
Sorry about the photograph but I'm feeling a bit low today. I'm feeling a but stressed in work and am worried about passing my probation. I feel like I don't have enough hours in the day and am certainly not slacking but it feels like I'm not getting anywhere with the outstanding claims. Coupled with the usual financial worries and worries about my old mum's health, I made my way to the docs this afternoon to get my happy pills updated.  Whilst ther...

So it’s another week

So it’s another week
And it's another loss, 3lbs this week. I'm quite pleased again cos I was again unsure about any loss this week. I felt that I'd been fairly bad last weekend. I got myself a takeaway that after ordering I realised that it was 19 bloody sins. (And that didn't include the noodles!) However, one of the wise pieces of wisdom that I've picked up from one of the guys at the SW group is that it's only one meal out of twenty one in that week. It's good to go...

How’s that?

How’s that?
Some people have told me recently that I'm an inspiration. That's a bit of a grandiose title for someone that up until a few months ago cared very little for the way he felt both physically and emotionally. I've really just done what I should have done years ago but it wouldn't have been possible until my friends helped me go to my local Slimming World group. Losing the weight has been a tough run. There have been some blips along the way but the be...

It’s a maintain this week.

It’s a maintain this week.
Despite a huge weekend on booze, food and very loud music, I've managed to keep the weight from going back on.  I've neither gained or lost (although at the start of the week I couldn't move for food!) so over the last three days or so, I have lost but only enough to bring myself back to the level that I was before I went off to Bloodstock. So no new packs of butter to add this week and thankfully none to take off. I'll be aiming for a good 5lbs nex...

Back on it…

Back on it…
So I'm a day early with the weigh in this week. I'm heading to the Bloodstock Open Air metal festival tomorrow so I can't go to the usual group session.  Last weeks weigh in wasn't a shock. I knew that I was going to put on after the Steelhouse Festival. However this week, I have been good. Honest Guvnor.   Luckily the scales seemed to agree with me and this week I have lost another 6.5lbs. So I'm nearly at the 4 1/2 stone mark. I've taken the 3.5lb...

It’s A Gain…

It’s A Gain…
But then what did I expect?  The weekend was a bit of a washout unfortunately. For the fourth year in a row, the Steelhouse Festival was wet and windy. There's nothing worse than being soaked to the skin. So I had to spend most of it with a beer in my hand.  I know where it all went Pete Tong. (That was in Cardiff Castle). It was the Rum and (Diet) coke, the amazing Real Ale and lots of festival junk food that made me put 3.5lbs back on. ...
