Sadly its not me - mine is 6lbs since January and that was Christmas weight and I still have some Vegas in there somewhere. No, Nessa is back with an update. She's doing fantastically well - I do have some reservations in that it is a 'no carb' diet and the weight loss has been very quick (no I'm not bitter promise!). I have seen this before and I will doing a blog post soon about how one diet in particular should be banned. In the meantime, over to Ness....
Hi everyone! Tash reminded me that I needed to do my next thrilling installment of my weight loss plan. Well things have been going really well and I have lost a total of 19lbs to date. This still has me in the Obese category (the BMI moves very slowly rather annoyingly!) but its progress in the right direction.
Dry January went by with only one failure. I was working in Dublin and staying in a hotel and it was rather easy to be persuaded to have one glass of red. Still, it didn't seem to do much damage ( and it tasted lovely!) so I think it was ok. I have been out several times for various birthdays and Fridays with the girls but stuck rather boringly to my water. I have been told I'm being boring so must work on the social skills whilst sober!!
Eating out in Dublin was a challenge and in one pub I ordered the lamb and asked for veg instead of the mash potato. Now in my world that means green things like broccoli and peas....but in Dublin, that means potatoes, just cooked in a different way! Oh well, I left them and just ate the lamb.
I am now heading into Dry February, although I am in Nice this weekend doing some maintenance on the apartment so I may partake in a glass then as well. For me this is a year long plan and I need to still be able to live a normal life. My drinking habits have now completely changed and instead of drinking a bottle of wine a night I am now only going to drink on a night out with company, and no, the cats don't count as company.
One thing I must try and break is the habit of weighing myself daily. And then moving the scales slightly on the floor and then weighing again! Any one else do that? Its madness really but occasionally you can scrape an extra half pound out of them that way!
I have discovered the joy of eating pork belly steak and crackling! That, together with cauliflower cheese is my staple evening meal at the moment. Its gorgeous comfort food and perfect for this way of eating!
So here are my latest pics. I think there is a difference! Until next time.....
