the diet!!

I have been very good and not eaten anything I shouldn't.I have cut down on portions and I have done loads of exercise.I went out with friends last night and had a salad.I have cut down on the wine.I have been so good and I stepped on the scales this morning( Iknow I should have waited ) and I had put on a lb.

Let's not think about that.My Tilia shawl is progressing very,very slowly.I like the effect of the beads.This is something new for me and I am thinking my 4 yr old granddaughter will love something with beads in it.She starts school in September and was due to go into school today and again next week and have a home visit etc but they had a message to say the teacher and her classroom assistant had been in a car accident and all these things were off.I just hope they weren't badly hurt.

Been to Chester this morning .Only intended to buy some shoes but saw a lovely top in M&S and couldn't resist it.Husband very impressed with it.It hides all my spare tyre!!


  1. So disheartening when that happens with the scales! Try drinking plenty of water in the next few days, I think you might find it helps! Also are you writing down what you eat and how many calories it has, sounds silly but sometimes things have more calories than we think and then they add up (plus I sometimes forget what extra bits I have popped in).

    Sorry to hear that the teachers had an accident, hope they are ok.

    Good to hear you have Tilia going again, it does get quicker once you get to the next section as I think it decreases by 4 stitches instead of 2!

  2. I hate it when that happens! You're right though, you should have waited .... by Sunday you will probably have lost a bit. My Slimming World leader always used to say that the worst thing you could be was a 'scale hopper' as it can be disheartening. Don't give up!
