I decided it was a teeny weeny bit pointless weighing myself, you see I haven't been entirely good on my diet, let's just say a couple of large Mac D fries featured in addition to potato cakes, sweet pancakes and full fat crisps. Basically I have had a mixture of good and bad days. This seems a regular occurrence with me, I fall off the horse then am back on it again only to fall off again. But the good thing is I don't give up. I will lose weight but not as quick as the regular dieter but that is okay with me.
I attended a park event, referred to as yarn bombing, featuring a knitted picnic which we had all created during my weekly knitting group. Yarn scarfs were draped around trees. It was a glorious day and the children loved it. I could hear some of them proudly pointing out their wool poms poms hanging from a given tree. Must admit I was pretty proud of the doughnuts and chocolate swirls I created as a beginner. Even the blanket was knitted by members.
I rejected any attempts of anyone taking my photo unless it was from my camera, where I posed like no-ones business.
That being said, there is nothing like seeing a photo of yourself in all your blubber glory to give you pause for thought. Funny how one doesn't feel as fat when they look in their own mirror but on a photograph, aye, aye, aye. Did I say VILE!
Despite the above, I have been much better. I have a mental categaory I have termed, "Under No Circumstances" and in this category I have items I cannot touch, under any circumstances, until further notice. So even if I can't resist a naughty, these items are untouchable, and I have to say I have been successful in this regard. When items are put in this category I mean business.
There are only a couple of things in this category, chocolate cookies, which I could not resist each day I visited my local convenience store and blocks of butter, which is so calorific and I was going through some serious blocks, over the months. So the fact that I have cut these out should show on my waistline even after six months, am guessing. Am hoping to increase this list slowly, after all Rome wasn't built in a day.
I decided to take some blubber measurements and start afresh. The last time I had taken measurements was the 9th May, I was expecting a few pluses but what the hell.
I found the following;
Upper Bust = - 1"
Full Bust = - 1.5"
Under Bust = - 0.5"
Waist = - 1.5"
Hips = - 1"
Thigh= - 1"
A total loss of 6.5 inches. Well I'll be damned!
So you see despite being a lousy dieter, it isn't all doom and gloom, just keep getting back on that horse, that is how I lost two stone previously and how I will lose it again. Yes sir.
