Week 171

0.8lb loss!

I'm pleased, and relieved. There's no doubt I've had a couple of extra cookies this week, however, I have been incredibly restrained, given the temptations under my nose.

Saturday was the Food Town Day with various stalls flogging their wares on a closed off high street and I did succumb to the Hog Roast roll with all the trimmings, as I do every year. However, my son put up a stall to sell cakes, cookies and scones he'd baked.

And he has his mother's touch when it comes to baking.

They looked good, smelled fantastic and just made the mouth water.

Baking smells have been wafting through the house for days and plates and bowls of cake mix, cookie dough mix, chocolate icing, melted chocolate etc have been strewn around the kitchen just waiting for a finger to be dipped.

Fortunately he sold out by lunchtime. I know I wouldn't have been able to resist eating any leftovers.

Still, my restraint appears to have paid off with nearly a 1lb loss since last week.

However, there will be cake tonight as we celebrate the end of the Spring Fling Weekend where Maggie has been displaying her artwork in the Open Studio event.

Week 170

2lb loss!

Yay! I knew last week must have been a blip. Another good week, apart from Saturday evening, and even that was less out of control that it could have been.

So with great relief I am now back under 13 stone again.

Week 169

0.6lb gain

Now I'm not entirely sure why I've put on over half a pound when I've had another near faultless week. I can only assume it's a blip of some kind, so I'm not going to worry myself over it.

More important is that I'm continuing to make the healthy choices, and there's no doubt it gets easier to resist the cravings the longer I go without giving into them.
