Do You Remember back in the beginning, I said this weight loss thing was all about HONESTY.

We shall NOT kid ourselves… Check out “It Starts”.  There is an interesting meme there … This one   …


SO  …  What Do You Do, When It Goes Wrong?

Because it will go wrong… I had a major blip this week at Thursday weigh in… and what is worse I did NOT know WHY…

I have had gains and maintains in the past, and been cool with them… because I knew I deserved them.

This week was, I felt, really different … I had been on it hard … ish, and increased the level of exercise, and I gained 3 POUNDS…

I was gutted

I stayed in group, and listened, but all the time I was going through what I had consumed that week…

  1. Thursday, Last week .. Planning Meeting   2 Pints Pedigree
  2. Friday,  Night Out In Lorry With Max – Curry,2 Poppadom,1 Naan, 4 Cobra, 1 Stella
  3. Saturday, Went To See Molly, Pub On Way Home, lean Steak Salad, Bit Of Garlic Bread, 1 1/2 Pedigree
  4. Sunday, Buttered Teacake before our 4 mile walk, And a Frothy Coffee,1 Can Stella with Tea.
  5. Monday, All Food, Free, No Syns, Yoga
  6. Tuesday, Usual Core Food,No Dance, No Beer, Packet of Mixed Salt free nuts, Bowl Of Frosties, 1 Packet of crisps
  7. Wednesday, Packet of Nuts again,Dinner With Sarah, Cheese straws N Dips, Spag Bol,1 Stella
  8. Thursday, Only Core food Weigh In



Core Food is

  • Overnight Oats / Bran for Breakfast.  Healthy B Weighed and accurate.
  • 2 oranges, 2 apples, 2 Nectarines, 2pears, 2 plums, 2 bananas… snacked on during day with extra apples for speed if needed
  • Ham Wraps   Syn Free and All Free
  • Flask and cup of coffee, This includes the majority of my Healthy A 300 Ml of 1 % Milk. I never use it all, incase I have had a bad day, and need a further cuppa when I get home.
  • Chicken Bacon and Mixed Pepper cold Stir fry … this is my daily, healthy, lunch. All free, loads of speed too.
  • Evening meal is further Chicken & Bacon with possible pepper and Mushroom Omelette.
  • Blue Berry and Strawberries with 0% Greek Style Yoghurt for pudding.
  • 2 litres of very weak vimto with sparkling water, during day, with another pint at bed time to wake up to.

That gets me through everyday.

If I vary that I get lost … it has become habit and I manage my life around that.

I cannot recommend this, as to most people it would be deadly dull… but you can swap flavours and options in there…

I just know that with this combination I have lost a hell of a lot of weight FAST


Was last week anything like close to this core?

Well I ate all of that … and then added the stuff in the first list on TOP!

So … 3 pound gain … may be, NOT such a surprise!

All A Bit ANAL

I know … a lot of analysis going on … but hey I want to get into my 34″ waist trousers, and then have to go have them taken in, as they are just an inch too big … so guess what, I will analyse what I have done

So when I looked at that … and stopped feeling sorry for myself


Really? No of course I shouldn't.

So I have gone back to my book, and I am doing a full, and very honest, food diary this week.

I am reducing the intensity of the exercise,


Going Sober For October

I am having an alcohol free week ( I had a pint after Group on Thursday) and going Sober For October.

I am sure that if I keep it straight and on core foods I will get my gain straight back off, and may even crash past where I was a fortnight ago

If I Don't?

That will be tough … however I truly believe that if I stay honest, and manage a full week syn free, and measure my daily healthies A & B I Will have that Loss that I felt I deserved ( However wrong that feeling was ) last week.
