My weigh-in was just as bad as I expected...7 1/2 lbs gained in one week. Okay, I'll cut myself some slack. At least 3-4 lbs can likely be attributed to me wearing more and much heavier clothes this week. Instead of my thin, short-sleeved cotton blouse and summer cotton trousers I was wearing jeans, a t shirt and a long-sleeved linen shirt over it. I've been told jeans can weigh around 3 lbs or more so that might explain some of the gain. Ther rest was purely down to my piggishness. So, I have been better today. Not brilliant, but I haven't pigged out again and I'm hoping I've gained back some self control. But at the moment I'm caught in that vicious circle that has me depressed because I've gained and eating fit to bust because I'm depressed.
I had a healthy frugal lunch of jacket potato done in the microwave (from the 55lb sack I bought for £7.80 at our local farm shop), served with a little low fat soft cheese (Aldi 59p), 30g grated cheddar (bought in bulk and frozen in 250g bags) and a handful of cherry tomatos (£1 a bowl containing about 1lb of toms from the local market). I followed that up with a baked Bramley apple (free from a friend's orchard), a few sultanas and a drizzle of honey.
Instead of dinner tonight which was leftover chicken pie, chips and beans for DH and DS1, I had some oatcakes (Aldi 55p) and a little Wensleydale cheese (Aldi £1.49), followed by stewed rhubarb (free from a friend's garden) and a fat free vanilla yogurt (Morrison's pack of 4 for £1) So, I probably ate a bit too much cheese today, but much better than the biscuits and chocolate I've been scoffing all week.
I still want to eat for England, but I'm managing to restrain myself a bit better. Knitting a nice woolly hat for DH, for when the weather gets colder and he has to stand at the bus stop and wait for the bus which is nearly always late, has helped keep my hands busy. I'm hoping to get it finished tomorrow and then I'll post a picture.
