Developing 10 - Weigh In time again
It's that weigh in time again. I only lost 2lbs this week but I'm not freaking out or anything. We looked at my stats and worked out that I have a blip every 5 weeks and I've only dropped to 2 lbs twice so it's not exactly the worst thing in the world. I know I'm sticking to the plan so I know it'll come off next week etc. Our target this week is for us all to increase our water intake. Grrr I suppose with the hot weather we should drink more but it's a pain. I'll try to get to 5 litres every day. Repharse that - I will drink 5 litres every day!!!
It's shame though as my scales this morning convinced me that I was up for a big loss (5 or 6lbs!) so that's the last time I believe them. I think my pesky body knows just when to start holding onto the water and it's usually 3 or 4 hours before weigh in time!
Apart from that, not much happening. I had a nice quiet drink with D this evening and chatted through a few points which have been narking me. Didn't row or anything so that was progress! we aslo just had a nice natter about what we've both been up to. We've been so busy that we haven't connected much just the 2 of us so it's good to talk...
Just chatted to my Dad on the phone for a good hour too (he always wants the weekly total!). He was really sweet and said that, as my brother's and sister's kids get loads of dosh off him every month, he's been feeling guilty that I am missing out. He's therefore going to pay for my LL classes for the next few months so I can put the money I would have sepnt into a fund to buy nice clothes when I get to goal! What a Dad! I don't care so much about the money (and certainly don't expect anything off him) but it's nice that he's really thought about how he could help me and show his support.
Feel really chuffed and pleased that he's so proud of me and wants to invest in the new me!
What else? Oh yes - was at a metting with loads of senior bosses at the Council including the Chief Exec. He walked in last and sat down, looked around the table including right at me and then said, deadpan: "I thought Lesley was coming to this meeting?!". Got a good laugh and was a nice way of congratulating me on the weightloss I think.
It's going to be a short post tonight 'cos it's late and I still haven't eaten my last pack so I'll try and do better tomorrow. Byeee
