Day 106

Good morning! The sun is shining yay! Weight is 152.2, 69 & 10.12. Not too bad. I was really good food wise this weekend. Felt like I was hungry all the time and didn’t have enough ready-made food to pick at which was hard so had to keep cooking stuff. I did drink some alcohol but didn’t cave on any food.

It was hard yesterday. I really wanted a twix. They were just sitting in the cupboard waiting for me. Maybe I should ask James to hide all his stuff. He ate about 100 biscuits in front of me yesterday. Thanks!

I had a tuna salad with cucumber and a little low-fat cheese for lunch, then made a chicken roast joint and just ate a bit of that. Every time I craved a twix I got a dukan choc muffin, so ended up eating three of those! Ha! Only had one slice of dukan bread so was probably ok on the oat bran front. Good job I had those in the fridge or I may have cracked. I keep thinking to myself, ‘Do you want to lose weight or not?’ Then the naughty side of me says ‘its only a twix for heavens sake’

Naughty naughty side. Felt pretty down yesterday and could have cried at any moment but managed to hold it together. Not sure why I keep feeling like this, but feeling ok today!

Will have a run tonight and am applying for two new jobs that I really want so need to finish off those applications.

Saturday I went for a walk in the morning with 2 of my sisters and 3 nieces and 1 nephew and James. Went round to the Viking Ship, which is an exact replica of a viking ship that came here years ago. (Obvs didn’t listen at school –  that’s all I know)  I’ll take a pic next time. Its a lovely area overlooking the sea and has a grassy area and a mini cafe too. We stopped for a cuppa then I raced the kids to the ship and back. (any excuse to get my exercise in!)

Have a good day!

    Congrats on a successful weekend Shannon!

    I don’t think the cravings ever go away really BUT your ability to deal with it gets better. I still get annoyed sometimes that I can’t have ‘x’ but the longer you stick with the diet the easier it is to be able to resist temptations.

    You are doing so well, the hormonal / emotional thing really makes it so difficult!!!! Sometimes I think its not ‘real’ hunger you feel but more a hormonal hunger, I get it, and it always seems worse when your hormones are everywhere. We know you dont really get physically hungry on this diet (unless you’re under-eating). Keeping this in mind helps me, I’m not depriving myself of anything by not eating junk, I’m saving myself from a tummy ache! 🙂

    Hope your job applications go well for you, have a good day xoxo

    Arghhh…. I know it can be tough some days to resist, good for you for doing it! This is just a thought, but how about just making some space to ‘have a good cry’ as they say? I don’t know if it will help, but just giving yourself permission to totally feel your feelings might be a relief.
