Weigh In #25

Three pounds!



I'm rather chuffed with my loss this week. Mainly because I had two nights out but stayed well within my syn allowance for the week. I kept track of what I drank and counted it up the next day to double check how many syns I'd had. Sticking to gin and slimline tonic or vodka and diet coke really does seem to work for me. Can't say I don't miss ice cold pints of cider though. Or a nice crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Mmmm, wine.

I finally feel like I've broken the back of the weight now. Am well over half way. In fact, I'm close to being two thirds of the way there. Amazing. I honestly never thought I'd see the day when I'd be happy with how I look. But I'm getting there. Slowly but surely.

A few people at group have nominated me for Woman of the Year. Am kind of overwhelmed by that to be honest as I really don't think I've done anything that inspirational. I won't win but it's lovely to even be nominated. I'm so much happier and so much more confident than I was this time last year and that's prize enough for me.

I need to lose two pounds next week to get my four stone award. Four. Stone. I can't believe it. I've been trying to lose weight for so long. I've been on various ridiculous diets for about ten years now but I never actually truly thought I could do it.

It's lovely when you prove yourself wrong.
