Monday Weigh In

+2lb. I don't do pressure dieting as you can see or dieting to order and I was very aware of my one year anniversary on the blog front was fast approaching. So what did I do? Celebrate with wine on Friday and Saturday topped of with an Indian take-away! I'm typing this whilst Jennifer Lopez is strutting herself on MTV - this woman has not aged and looks fab-u-lous in her forties.  I have JLO envy going on at the moment. Talk is cheap when it comes to dieting or should I say talk is pounds on. Why can't I just have the body of JLO thank you very much.

I've got to get back to basics. When I started this I had one glass of wine on a Friday. This will return. My sister and her husband are due to visit on Saturday so will defer the wine till Saturday. Oh, in addition I met my friend for lunch Friday and had a burger!  Its all been a bit manic recently with potty training (a great success - he picked it up with ease and I'm going to brag about that if you please!), PTA stuff, school stuff, kids stuff etc.

The party season is fast approaching, not that I go out a great deal but I'm sure I'll be going to a couple of nights out.  I have been buying lots of bits and pieces for the kids recently - winter attire mainly together with party bits for my daughter.  It suddenly occurred to me that I don't buy anything for myself with regards to clothes, boots, shoes etc. I have no interest. This is because I don't want the hassle of ordering stuff that doesn't fit.  I don't even look at clothes anymore. I need to start thinking about looking more stylish and glamorous now that buddy starts pre-school after half term. Its only 2 mornings a week but it means I can exercise fully without interruption.  A friend of mine is going to dig out her bike and we're going to set off on hilly bike rides. I did this before my wedding together with spinning and Pilates.  Plus I'm not going to have another pregnancy to get in the way of my weight loss programme so its all very exciting. Its a new chapter and I'm feeling positive.

Until next time... oh and don't forget to tune in on the 25th and I'll give you the total figure on the blog and pre blog front!

  2. Good luck for this week Natasha - I managed to put on 3 lbs on my recent trip to Adelaide - hotel breakfasts! But have got rid of half of it in the 4 days I have been home.... And Adelaide was a nice place to hang out for a while - particularly the wine regions... will be posting about it in a week or 2. Cheers

    1. Sounds like the 3lbs was all paid for as they say and I would go so far as to say you haven't had a good holiday if there isn't a little weight gain! 3lbs is easily managable and like you say never off! x

  3. Just found your blog, and hope to spend some time perusing it. I am about 40 pounds overweight, and after years of yo-yo dieting and trying to find the "magic bullet," I have started to believe that it's not necessarily about what I'm eating, but rather that I've become mired in this current mindset of eating all the time. I too remember the 1970s and eating 3 meals a day, no snacking, no dessert on a daily basis, no soda or junk food except for very special occasions. I think the current medical advice to eat 5-6 times a day is what makes us fat! So this is great inspiration and I am totally behind your way of thinking. Thanks for the blog!

    1. Wow - thank you. Here is a post I wrote about why I believe the slimming clubs are faddy diets too http//the1970sdiet.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/dukan-is-for-donuts.html

      This has been quite liberating for me. I no longer weigh myself 10 x a day which I have been doing for the majority of my adult life. I believe you do have to be hungry between meals and agree we're not meant to be eating all the time - grazing like cows. Thanks for reading and I hope you stay! x
