I give you... Scales of Severity. God bless all who weigh on her. Chiefly, me. I lost an extremely paltry ½lb this week. Taking me streaking from Tubby.8 ¾ to Tubby.8 ¼ (not literally - what an unpleasant thought. I weigh in in a long t-shirt fyi). For the purposes of online recording this is the second week running that I have stayed the same. Let’s hope that this new WW propoints is all that’s it’s trumpeting itself to be. Because I’m not going to get to Chubby this way (or at any rate, very slowly at an average of ¼lb a week). And I do so want to be Chubby by Christmas (can you fix that for me Santa? Can you please?). Preferably to be stuck in a little way into Chubby to account for the inevitable festive pile on.
One thing I can see about WW II (hmm, just realised how that looks!) is that I am having fewer snacks – I’m having fruit instead. Given that my old favourite snack of 2 Ryvita crispbread (to be consumed with cream cheese) has gone from ½ point to a whopping 4 points (and that’s without the cream cheese). An inoffensive Ryvita! And – sheer lunacy this – a jaffa cake is only 1 point! Which would you rather have? A crispbread with the appearance and taste of plywood or 4 zesty chocolatey jaffa cakes? Admittedly the latter is not as good with cream cheese....
I may be hungrier but this lack of snack must be a good thing, right? My first day of the full week starts today so it will be interesting to see what I weigh in as next week. I don’t need to tell you, Reader, that all the pain, irritation, hunger and anxiety will be worth it for a good 2lb (+) drop.
On the fruit machine today:
· 4 satsumas
· 2 apples
· Handful blueberries
· Small bunch grapes
· Tub of mango
Is this where loads of money comes pouring out of the slot?
