Sooo, last official WI saw me as Porky.10 1/2, up from Porky.8 1/2 the previous week. I wailed, wept and despaired. And then got on with it. Two days later (last Friday) a sneaky encounter with SoD told me I was Porky.8 3/4. Perhaps I hadn't piled on 2lbs after all? I carried on regardless, grim of face and broad of beam (not the kind on your mush).
After a series of best intentions which nonethless saw me eating more syns than I had planned to, I eventually had 83 syns out of the normal allowance of 105. More than I'd planned by a long way but a reasonable shortfall on the total.
This week's official WI made me Porky.8 (after my shower - disturbingly I was Porky.8 1/4 before it. I really wouldn't have said I was so dirty!). So depending on how you look at it, I've either lost a little less than or about 1lb or I've lost 2 1/2lbs. Who knows? It's down and that's all that matters I guess; I'll just carry on and see what the next WI brings.
Of course, this means I've lost 4 1/2lbs in 17 weeks. Now, I'm pretty hopeless at maths but I think that means it would take me a year and two months to lose a stone. Not a joyful statistic but, as ever, what's the alternative? I just hope that something changes at some point - for the better.
