Another week gone and another week without jumping on the scales, still not sure if that’s a good thing or not but I don’t really have the urge to at the moment whereas I’m usually all for weighing myself every five minutes to see if I’ve lost any weight.
Food wise I’ve been sticking to my meal plan with the odd treat thrown in and I’ve been trying out some gorgeous recipes lately which I’ve adapted to be as healthy as possible or to suit all of us including the baby. I have even turned down my favourite foods. I went shopping yesterday and was stood infront of the pork pie/sausage roll/scotch egg section, none of which I’ve had for over six months and have been craving like no ones business but stood infront of those fatty goodies yesterday I just didn’t want them, didn’t even want them to take home and stick in the fridge for later or in a few days. If any of you know of my pork pie obsession you will know what a breakthrough (and an oddity) this really is. I can only explain it by saying that when I can’t or don’t have something I want it but when I can have it I don’t want it – that was certainly the case. It sounds quite ridiculous, I turned down a pork pie – woohoo, but this is the woman who can easily stuff a large one or six medium ones in her mouth in one session! (no wonder I’m on a diet!)
I don’t know what has changed this week, I just feel like I don’t need to monitor everything I eat, nor do I need to stuff myself. I feel oddly in control of what I’m eating and I certainly feel better about myself. Long may it continue!
