Hi everyone, good to see some good conversations and varied subjects. Ruby, seem like you have already got your dieting head on. I think I will start today – already been super good – rather than waiting for the weekend to be over. So that’s Sober October a few days late.
Had a very nice meal last night. The aperos were a bit naff, tiny squares of white sliced bread spread with a variety of toppings, hummus, tapanade etc but I didn’t touch them. They had a couple of bowls of green and black olives and they were delicious with lemons and limes in the mix with olive oil and something spicy. Then we sat down for the meal and it was a very large bowl of butternut squash soup with croutons and lardons. I had a few lardons but I really couldn’t eat all the soup, it was as much as a main course for me. Not surprisingly (been here before) we had chicken supreme with some crunchy vegetables and dauphinoise potatoes which I had a taste of but only a small amount. The dessert was very nice, nougat ice cream with chantilly cream on the side so not very carby but a bit too sweet. Sorry but I ate it all. So that is my one and only treat meal until the end of the year. Funny thing is I lost half a pound. It will probably crop up unexpected in a day or so.
I wore the same dress I had on for daughters wedding and could see a difference with a tummy and a midriff I had managed to lose now back on. So a further incentive. Also want to get rid of that ‘obese’ tag the doctor gave me. I am 31 so only just into the obese range – I dont think doctors in the UK are allowed to say that word any more but it is a good kick up the bum.
Need to get my exercise DVD’s out. I did swim 2 days in a row which is probably why I have lost weight. It was ffffff reezing cold but so refreshing.
Have a good rest of the week.
