Wow... I have not kept to the diet at all whilst being away. I had lots of French baguettes, croissants and even more cake, wine and cocktails. Everything I should have only in moderation. Hey, its a holiday A?ND my birthday, so I allowed myself the week. In reality it turned to 12 days. Straight after my last weigh in, things started slipping the wine poured and the chocolate disappeared.
I did enjoy the holiday even though I felt the belly bloat just a few days into the holiday. On returning I was straight back onto Weight watchers and managed to claw back some of the water retention weight gain. I had a sneak peak on Monday morning and was mortified at the 6.5lb gain. However, lots of water, no booze and back to healthy portions of the correct foods my official weigh in results for this week is...
I am a little gutted by the huge weight gain, but can understand it. We didn't really do much walking of great distances apart from one day, and the swimming wasn't really swimming. All I can do is now put it behind me and continue on the plan. There is 23 weeks until our next holiday and I am hoping that I will loose another 2 stone in that time. If I loose more, that will be an extra bonus.
This week there is another spanner in the works... Hubby and myself are having a night away for my birthday with no girlies. There will be a lovely dinner and drinks, but also a big BBQ as my parents are up visiting too. Eek.... lots of planning and counting will be needed. I am going to aim for a 2lb loss, but will need to get walking or possibly even trying to jog a little as my knee hasn't really caused me much trouble recently. Yippee.
I also finally have an appointment to see a Dr regarding my hideous and painful vein. Fingers crossed they will remove it for good. Every time S bangs it I'm in pain these days, but will know they will want me to get to a healthier BMI. Therefore, this journey is now for my health too, not just to make me feel better.
