Operation Wobbly Bottom: Week 16

Oh dear.

You will notice that I did not write last week - the time just flew over, and in any case I had gained half a pound and I found myself with nothing of interest to write! So I have decided to do these updates once every two weeks - hopefully I will have more to report then.

This week has been a bit of a fail. But wait - I HAVE EXCUSES!

a) It was our fifth wedding anniversary and I made this amazing cake. I also ate a lot of it.

b) We had a cheat tea of steak with loads of chips on our anniversary and we drank lots of wine

c) I went to this Foodies Festival, ate lots of food, drank Prosecco and generally had a great time with my family.

Look at me - I'm stuffing my face with naughty food!
d) It was my GIRL WEEK and I wanted to eat ALL OF THE STUFF. So I did.

Anyway, that said, I only had three bad days out of the seven, and gained a pound this week. So overall I have gained a pound and a half. I'm annoyed not so much that I gained the weight, just at the fact that over those two weeks I could have LOST weight instead, and how amazing would that have been.

Instead of eating LOADS of cake and eating LOADS of STUFF - I could have just had a bit of the stuff and made up for it for the rest of the week. However, I reverted back to my old self and just lost control. I'll be honest, I didn't like the feeling of losing control. I don't want to go back, and so it ends now - today.

I have had a lovely time with my family - days out, great food - and I would have enjoyed it just as much without as much food. As shallow as it sounds, I am really enjoying being thinner - I feel good about myself and my body for the first time in a long time and I want to hold on to that.

So, here it is.

I'll be back with an update in two weeks. I'm off to the gym to get rid of this extra!
