Weight: 17st 9.5lb
Loss this week: 1.5lb
Total lost: 72lb
Yay another loss! I've still got a very close eye on that "15st by Christmas" target and it is still achievable, but only if I keep my eye firmly on the ball now. There isn't a lot of room for slip ups if I want to make it, and I so do want to make it. Obviously if I don't, it won't be a disaster because I will still have lost a lot of weight over the course of a year, and no doubt at all that I will continue. But for motivation, you can't beat hitting targets! I've always worked very well to a deadline so I think it's time to really see my deadline approach and tackle it head on now!
Last week Dietgirl showed us her recipe for Eton Mess, substituting 2% greek yoghurt for the whipped cream, and I vowed to make it. Not only did I make it, I served it to guests and it went down a storm! I have had the real deal in all it's creamy sugariness, and the low fat version is every bit as nice, no question. And takes a couple of minutes to make. For other Slimming World followers out there, I used the Total 0% greek yoghurt which is of course free food, as are the strawberries. And I used meringue nests from Sainsbury's which are 2.5 syns each. So if you allow 1 meringue per person that's an delicious sweet creamy pudding for a measly 2.5 syns. Well it would be rude not to make it really!
Finally today I'm going to use my blog to whip up a little sympathy for my poor daughter who, at 6 years of age, is suffering with shingles. I didn't even know kids could get it! Poor baby, she is doing really well but she is in pain. Lots of love and very gentle hugs for Rebecca, get well soon baby xxxxxxx
