Wednesday's Weigh In - Week Three

Weight – 1.4kg lost!!! And a total of 10cm


It probably helps that I’ve been sick since Friday so not a huge appetite although I have eaten a pack of TimTams (terrible I know but I NEEDED them) Clearly they haven’t affected my weight loss this week but I may have to watch what I eat next week. Otherwise I haven’t really been craving sweet, or craving anything for that matter. Food is fuel, and that’s how I’m starting to see it. I know I have a fair way to go before my eating plan is near perfect but I also don’t want to deny myself ‘junk’ because I know I will give in to it in a big way if I know it’s off limits.

So, how was my eating this week??? I could have done a lot better but I’m honestly feeling like crap. It started with a scratchy throat, then went to a raspy cough, now (almost a week later) I have swollen glands and a head cold. I was putting it down to change of season (Summer – Autumn) but I have since heard there is a bug doing the rounds all over the country. So far Elijah has managed to avoid it.
