So today I am congratulating myself on one entire week of doing this ww malarkey - it's not as easy as you might think - certainly nowhere near as easy as the first time around, when I was super skinny before becoming a BigFatPie *sigh* ( I fear the phrase 'yo-yo dieter' was invented solely with me in mind)

So, it's been a week since the motivation mojo kicked and I kicked myself up the butt (with a little help from a very understanding friend :) ) : I have eaten well and healthily, stuck to points, minimised alcohol intake (vastly) and exercised sooooooo WHY AREN'T I THIN YET??!!!!??!!!

Rationally I know yadda yadda yadda it's going to take a while, it's not going to come off overnight, moment on the lips..., no quick fix solutions BLAH DE BLAH but still that little whiny voice inside my head wants to know 'WhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyYYYYYYY?'

I've been SOOOO GOOOD surely it should be, like, a stone by now?! Anyone else feel like this?


Anyhoo - food lists for today thus far (it's 1pm)

breakfast - 40g porridge oats (30g weren't enough yesterday) 2 points, in skimmed milk with a cuppa, again with skimmed milk (is there any other kind?!)

Lunch - the leftover savoury rice from last night 5 points plus 1 points' worth of fresh strawberries sliced with a ww yog (1/2 point) over them (YUM!)

I've had 2 cups of real coffee (nescafe, schmnescafe!) with a dash of skimmed milk and am planning on a swim later.

So, running total for now (including 1 for half a pint of skimmed milk) is 9 1/2 which seems kinda high but I guess the rice is quite high in points, however it was totally filling and i really am not craving a 'dc moment' (diet coke) or any sort of crisp vibe, which ordinarily I would give in to.

ALSO I just remembered that I don't have to get weighed tonight! WOO!!

ALSO - something in the news REALLY pissed me off today - see here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7878680.stm

Er....no shit, sherlock!!! Good GRIEF *rolls eyes* - I wonder how much that little 'think tank' got paid to come up with that little pearl of wisdom.....Come ON!

Until later ......

BFP xxxx

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as insta-thin ... it's such a long slow process that doesn't end when we get to a goal weight. I'm still trying to get there AGAIN and hope all this time has made me realize what it takes to keep it off permanently. Keep up the good work, it will happen, hang in there and be my inspiration ;)
