Mothers Day 2016

Weight loss: Week 36

Mothers Day 2016I have still not found the weight loss wagon; I’ve been indulging in Nutella filled doughnuts, too much alcohol & lots of cheese. Fortunately when I weighed in this morning I still saw a 1lb loss, so hooray for that! I’ve got another pound to go before I’m back to my weight before last week’s gain, but a loss is a loss and, given I’m not really trying still, I think it’s good going.

I’m not sure what’s going on with my drinking; I’ve drunk every evening except one this past week. Either a Bailey’s or a Malibu & Fanta or both…
I went through this a while ago, drinking too often, although I feel like it was for different reasons. Before it was because it made me feel confident and no longer full of anxiety, now I feel I’m drinking because I fancy sitting on the terrace in the sun with a glass of something alcoholic. I’m not worried about it for the moment, but it is something I need to keep an eye on.

On the flip side, I’ve eaten less chocolate bars of an evening this past week, so that’s a positive.

At the end of the day though, I’m enjoying life at the moment, and that means enjoying my food too. I’m very much in the holiday spirit, the sunny weather is helping with that, so I’m not going to beat myself up too much. I don’t want to be on a permanent ‘diet,’ as I’ve said before it’s about a lifestyle change for me, and there will be periods in my life where healthy eating goes out of the window for a little while, and that’s OK. What is important is getting back on track when I can and loving myself as I am.

    If you’re eating Nutella filled donuts and still losing weight, I shouldn’t worry too much about falling off the wagon ! I love Malibu but I’ve never tried it with Fanta – I want to now though ! Whatever the scales say, I love how positive and upbeat you’re sounding at the moment, so that’s definitely the most important thing xxx

    Well done on your loss chick, it’s all falling into place now! You are right, you do need to enjoy yourself and treat yourself, you deserve it… but then get back on track. I always find the sun makes you want to drink alcohol. For me, it’s sitting out and enjoying a nice cold Peroni, so am kind of glad it is raining at the moment! 😉 Hope you are having a lovely week chick! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday linky and hope you can join in again! Sim xx
