Grrrrr I'm so frustrated with myself! I know I'm in for a gain this week because I've allowed myself to be careless, to not monitor my food intake properly, to eat things without knowing the syn value first, and worst of all, to eat something I shouldn't because I'm with people who are eating. (Jam and cream scone if you want to know!)
I know these pitfalls exist. I know that if I fall into them I won't lose weight. I know what I have to do to reach my target. But the self-sabotage fairy is sitting on my shoulder whispering things like "you won't gain 2lbs just by eating a scone!" and "how much difference will it really make if there's a bit too much meat in the chilli" not to mention the all time humdinger "you deserve a treat!" How much do I hate that one!
I'm not writing the week off, I'm doing all I can to haul a loss from the jaws of a gain. But my scales, although unreliable, do tend to accurately show an upward or downward trend. And it's up this week.
On the plus side I'm walking enough to exhaust 2 greyhounds, to the point one of them lay down on the mat last night and refused to go out again when I put her lead on. Some personal trainer she is! ;)
