Okaaayyyy, so if you've read any of my blither over the last week, you can't have failed to have noticed my sterling efforts on the lard-sheddage front. As recently as yesterday I confirmed another cycle commute and my adherence to points over the weekend (always a challenge). So why, WHY does the henious villain SoD tell me that I have put ON 1lb this week? I am mystified - and not a little wounded. I'm also going to buy new scales. I don't believe it, it isn't possible and yet - as anyone who has ever been in a similar situation probably knows only too well - I am downcast and rather fed up. I feel cheated of the reward for my efforts than I hang in there for. I feel like a chocolate binge or rage-eating my way out of my disappointment. I won't, but I'm not sure exactly how I am going to shake myself out of my gloom.
I did eat too much sugar yesterday. I don't believe that has anything to do with my weight gain as the whole flipping point of WW is that you can eat your points any which way. But I had a 6.5 point sugar feast - a Chomp (2), a tube of Lovehearts (1.5) and a Big Purple One (3). This was partly as the soup I'd made for lunch came out as a paltry 1 point and I wanted to eat my full points. Still, I need to find more nutritious ways of making points on the rare occasion that I have a point mountain to munch through (I think this is the second time!). I won't be making that soup again anyway - roasted aubergine and chickpea (okay but not great). Tonight I'll be making chicken vegetable soup for the next three lunches (chicken, leek, carrot, celery, mushroom, sweetcorn and leftover chickpeas) - still low point but it needs to be more than 1.
I'm off to sulk somewhere less annoying for everyone else. Hope everyone else is having a better day!
