Last night, I lost weight, 2.5lb. Huzzah, Yippee, Woot and so forth.
This last week, I have NOT stopped. I have been in and out the house, I have been eating fruit and salad. I have been on the go and sticking to the diet to the letter. I honestly expected about 4lb. That's not bragging, blowing my own trumpet or anything, I have worked HARD for it.
So, in the meeting last night, I was sat grinding my teeth.
Now, before you wade in and start telling me all sorts, I know 2.5lb is good. For most of the group, that's a LOT. Between the four of us going, we are seriously wiping the floor with everyone.
I just wanted more.
So that had my back up, and I was muttering and grumbling, and when it came to my turn to tell the leader how I felt about it, I let her know. I held back, but I let her know.
Despite being a little, shall we say, hacked off, that wasn't what got my fires a-raging. No, the smouldering flames were stocked when a group of women sauntered in, faffed around, got weighed and then sat beside the four of us.
And unpacked a cooked dinner.
Yes folks, this group decided that sitting in a group of dieters, they would sit and eat. Pots, pans, boxes, plates, cutlery... I was shocked at first, then pissed off. How rude can you get?
And the icing on the cake was the fact they were then scoffing piles of ACTUAL CAKE!
I was really pissed off. THAT was the petrol that was thrown on my fire, so I properly had the hump last night.
I NEARLY considered getting loads of junk food and scoffing out, but decided no, I am better than that. So Kellie chopped up a load of veg, I hacked some chicken to death, and then gassed the house out with a Thai stir fry with chilli and lime noodles.
We then watched Horrible Histories on the telly. Yes, we watched a kids TV program.
This week, I am going to be extra careful. I'm cutting out sweeteners in my coffee, I am drinking more water, and am reducing my portion sizes... I will try "doing more" in the way of walking and what-not, but I risk doing too much and killing myself to the point I can't do any more. Vicious Circle :(
I am glad I lost weight. A loss is a loss, and 2.5lb is a good loss. I just hoped for more.
