End of week 3…and… *drum roll*
I lost 3 pounds! (and NOT down the back of the sofa). Weight was 12 stone on Wednesday morning. Last week I weighed 12 stone 3lbs.
Thank goodness for that.
And the other big change this week is that I am thinking less and less about chocolate, and donuts, and cake, and biscuits…and…oh dear.
No, really, I don’t know when this stopped but I have realised that I am not craving it at work anymore. Sitting at my desk at work is when I get my worst thoughts about bingeing on bad food. Another weak time for me is post-school run when we all collapse through the front door in a heap of coats, book bags, lunchboxes and muddy shoes. All I want to do then is drown in a vat of tea and jump into a ball-pool of smarties.
This week I haven’t felt quite as bad as that. Yes, I have needed my tea, but I have been able to cope with a fruit snack. We are also cooking and eating dinner much earlier.
So three weeks without chocolate is the longest I have gone without chocolate since a young child.
I am now in unchartered territory….
