Well, what a relief. After maintaining last week, this week I lost three and a half pounds, I got my two stone certificate and sticker, I reached my Christmas challenge (and went beyond) AND I was Slimmer of the Week.
Phew. So very happy about all that.
My BMI has gone down quite a lot too. It's now 26.1 and it used to be over 42 before the gallbladder crisis. Just seven more pounds down to get into the 'normal' banding. Maybe by the end of January?
It means I have lost, on average, half a stone per month which suits me just fine. Good old Slimming World.
And to cap it all, all my 'taster chicken' got eaten with some very appreciative comments. I've posted the recipes as a separate thread.
I'm afraid I might have celebrated a bit afterwards. Oooops!
B: yogurt and fruit
Something easy as I will be rushing around all morning.
SW: one syn for the yogurt
L: really not sure, it all depends on how things go and how quickly I can get away. If I'm here, I will defrost a home made soup.
D: salmon with seafood sauce, vegetables
The salmon will be free to me!
SW: 2 syns for the sauce.
It's going to get increasingly erratic for a few days. I will keep posting but don't expect anything too frugal or particularly Slimming World friendly, although I will look out for opportunities. I expect a bit of a gain but don't want anything too terrible.
p.s. On reading back, this post sounds a bit of a show-off. I don't mean it to be, it's just that I am so pleased and very relieved. Until a year ago, I had given up on anything but staying super-large for the rest of my life - maybe I needed to hit rock bottom before climbing back up again.
