It’s been 5 weeks exactly since I publicly called time on the “fat creep” I’ve been experiencing over the last couple of years.
It’s not been the easiest 5 weeks but, let’s face it, there’s never a good time to diet. It’s been a heavy month for socialising which, for me, means eating too much, drinking too much and then, at the end of the evening, raiding the cupboards at home for biscuits and chocolate thereby eating too much all over again. I am the queen of self sabotage so even without the excuse of a night out I can wreck a perfectly good diet day by snacking on crap at 10pm. Why do I do that? It’s so annoying.
Then there was my Chronic Kidney Disease diagnosis that could have easily derailed my diet (I am definitely an emotional eater) especially since I went to a Gin tasting event with friends that same evening.
It sounds like I’m making excuses. I’m actually not. I now weigh in at 10 stone 4.8 which means I am 7.4 pounds lighter than I was 5 weeks ago. 1 month, half a stone – I’ll take that!
Special thanks go to my “Fat Friends” (you know who you are ❤️) for providing the support, the laughs and most importantly the geeky graphs! I think this is the first “fat club” I’ve ever enjoyed!
