I don't understand ......

how the scale gods work or what they think ? I am sure that they are just here to mess with my mind !!!! From Tuesday last week until Saturday I fluctuated between 68.8 and 69.4 on my scales at home – Sunday and Monday (weigh-in day) I was back up to 70.4 ! Last night I went to weigh feeling like I had put on although knowing that I was about 25 points under for the week and didn’t overeat my sugar points at all – and lost 0.3. Now I know that a loss is a loss is a loss but crikey – I can walk faster than these last few kilos are coming off !!!! Will I ever get there ??????????????? Only 2kgs to go until I am within the “1kg no pay to weigh” range and I am determined to get there – I just hope I can be patient enough !!!!!!!
My plan this week is to change my food completely and eat different things to the food that I normally eat. Maybe I can shock my system into getting rid of these last couple of kgs !!!! I would like to say that I will exercise more but I don’t know if that will happen so will just play that one by ear and if I get more exercise that will be great and if I don’t I will enjoy the time that I can spend with Al before he goes back next weekend.
On a more sore note – while I am completely mindful of the serious health problems which some people have – this is my problem today (and probably the next couple of days !!!) – last night I sliced open the top of my middle finger while trying to get a carton cutter blade out my pocket. I thought I was being ever so careful sliding my hand into my pocket as my blade had come out the carton cutter but I was talking at the same time and mis-judged the depth of my pocket !!!! Now I have a very nice big slice across the top of my finger and down the side of my nail – Al managed to sort a plaster out for me and fix me up but boy is it difficult typing and not using your middle finger !!!! Or else flinching every time I forget and do use it !!!! (Not that I have done that much lately – must be learning to keep it out the way !!!).

TFTD : What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are trifles, to be sure, but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

TIAGF : Leftovers so I don’t have to cook when I get home from pilates tonight.

I think shaking up your eating a bit will help move things along. They say spicy food revs up your metabolism too. YUM! Good luck :-) Sorry about your finger - I did a similar thing at work yesterday - put my hand in my pocket and got a wicked paper cut on my index finger - strange!

I agree with Kate - try curries or food with lots of spice in them. They say it is great for weight loss. I bet that cut hurt!! Nothing worse than a razor cut especially on your finger. So many nerve ending there. Ouch!! Take care and keep that finger out of the way!! XX

That is a pain about the weight. Still your loss might show up next week. Weight can be funny like that.

It is so nice to hear that you are so close to goal, I love reading success stories I know then that it can be done. You are so close just keep going, drink all your water (bit hard this time of year) as well as those spicy foods you will do it. Well done.

I wouldn't worry about the exercise if Al is home. Just do what you can fit in and make th emost of your time with him. That weight will soon be gone and if it takes a couple of weeks longer it will still be gone.
Your poor finger, be careful of it won't you?

Ouch ouch ouch.

300gms is 15% of the weight you have left to lose - thats great!

Changing your food will definately help, especially if you change your breakfasts.

The home scales are terrible things. Mine are relatively new and they put me at about 3.5kg lighter than the weight watchers ones. I would love to believe them but I know that the only ones to listen to are the official ones.

Congrats on the loss and Ouch on the blade cut. Have done that before. Take care that it is kept clean. But on the bright side, perhaps the loss of blood will get you closer to your goal.. LOL.. Silly me..

Have a great day :)
