  • Well that was a disaster of a weekend, I have drank and eaten so much it was disgraceful. Nothing much planned for next weekend so I am determined to stick to plan this week. Monday - Thursday is easy then I totally lose the plot the other 3 days.

    I need to find my control button!!

    I'm not a fan of weetabix or porridge so I struggle with breakfast. I tend to have boiled egg with soldiers using lower cal bread.

    Fast day for me today after a weekend away with puds and cake. Some walks and active dancing too so not too bad. And I made it to the gym again this am and this time did a proper workout.

    I'd much rather eat granola/muesli than weetabix but I can only be trusted to exercise portion control with weetabix... :naughty:

    I know I shouldn't weigh myself more than once a week but I couldn't help myself this morning - I WEIGH ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY SOMETHING :j:j:j

    Back from my girls long weekend away - by rights I should have lost loads of weight but in reality I probably haven't!!!


    Will weigh myself tomorrow when I am back in work.


    Barely ate anything all weekend but drunk enough to sink a ship and danced for at least 6 hours every night!!

    Must get back on 5:2 - will start again tomorrow.

    Well done MWC.
    I have done my 2 fast days and looking forward to eating fruit and muesli for breakfast rather than a meagre bowl of porridge.
