Yes, I had to face the music. I DEFINITELY fell off the wagon over Christmas and I ate and drank a little too merrily. But you know what? It didn’t bother me. It wasn’t the end of the world. I enjoyed Christmas, spending time with family and friends and I began with a clean slate when I returned to Weight Watchers after Christmas and began as I meant to go on. I had a gain of 6lbs over the two week Christmas break (which was a lot less than I thought it would be, it felt like 40!) and today, believe it or not, at my first weigh in today since starting back I managed to lose 7 and a half pounds! Happy me!
I was careful, I planned meals, I weighed my portions and was still able to have treats like a cheeky glass of wine and some (carefully measured!) crisps at the weekend. I know I won’t have the same loss next week, as it will have to even itself out, but I’m so pleased to have started off well. Some favourite low calorie and wholesome recipes that I found online were Mushroom Risotto, Asian Meatballs, Salmon in Honey and Soy. The meatballs and the salmon recipes are particular favourites in our household because they are genuinely tasty and you couldn’t tell for a second that they are low calorie so we will definitely be making them again.
Weight loss this week: 7 1/2 lbs
Total Weight loss: 1stone 4lbs (18lbs)
