Week 3 Weigh In

I'll admit now that week 3 wasn't the best - I had 2 birthday meals out, birthday drinks, and dinner at a friend's house, all in the space of 4 days. I ate curry and naan bread, I drank copious amounts of wine, I had a few crisps, so all in all I was a bit worried about tonight's weigh in. However, there were two things keeping me going - I'd done a lot of exercise this week (clocking up a total of 200 minutes), and I'd had a few non-syn days during the rest of the week, both of which I hoped would at least balance out some of the bad stuff. I also managed to fit into a pair of jeans that were a bit tight the week before, so I felt I'd lost a little bit.

My target for this week was to lose at least 1.5lbs, as this would get me my half stone award, and as I went to class tonight I was doubtful of even losing that much, so I was incredibly surprised to find that I'd actually lost 3.5lbs. This means I've now lost 9lbs in the last three weeks, and I got my half stone sticker on the book!

I honestly have no idea how I managed to do so well again last week, but really hope that this will continue. This week is as busy as ever. Tomorrow is my fiance's birthday so I have yet another birthday meal out, and then on Friday I'm meeting my mum for our regular Good Friday shopping/lunch/wine trip! This is then followed by a meal with my future in-laws on Sunday for Easter (and I really want to try and avoid the Easter eggs given the syns our consultant told us were in even the small ones!).

I won't be weighing in next week, as I'm away for a week's holiday in Perthshire, so it'll be another 2 weeks before I see if I can sustain these losses!
