I haven't weighed in for ages so have no idea how much I weight at the moment
but I feel good and that's what's important to me. I'll go to the pharmacy and weigh in on their scale over the next few days and probably use that as my guide now.
I've missed my group meeting for the last couple of weeks and I'm probably not going to go back. There's been a whole issue with people joining who really only have 2-3kg, if that, to lose and I'm feeling very intimidated by them. I'm by far the biggest person in the group and I already found it hard to relate to some of the women there but with these new ones I just don't feel comfortable sitting in front of them and saying what I'm doing. Even if I'm doing everything right â€“ which I am right now â€“ I feel that they're looking at me and saying "well yeah, if you know all the bloody answers how come you're sitting there looking like a beached whale!".
I'm glad this board is back up and it seems to be working because I'm back on track.
This weekend will be a bit of a challenge because we're going to some friends for lunch tomorrow and I don't know what food she'll have. I asked if I could make something and she said absolutely not so I don't like to take a salad with me or she'll think I'm really rude. I think I will try to eat something before we go and hope that there are some vegetables at least. I just have to be careful. I'm usually quite good in front of others â€“ I don't like people watching me and thinking "no wonder she's so fat, look at what she's eating". I know because I've thought it myself about others!
Physically I've been feeling rather stiff the last few days and I hope I'm not coming down with something. Youngest DS is sick and DH doesn't feel 100%. I didn't walk yesterday, which is the first day I've missed in two months. I didn't get up just so early this morning as it's so cold at 5.30 and I thought if I waited until the sun is up it might be warmer. I walked at 7.00 and although completely blue skied and sunny it was absolutely freezing! However, I walked for 45 mins and felt OK, although chilled.
â€“ cabbage, spring onion and tomato frittata with mozzarella cheese
â€“ probably a chicken salad with a mustard and balsamic dressing
â€“ I'm making a big family dinner tonight so I have a tuna mousse to start, lentil & vegetable soup, baked chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce, green beans and a green salad.
â€“ diet jello for me and some kind of hot fruit salad for the others
I have my bag of pistachios if I need a snack or two during the day.
