#WLWC 7- First weight gain :(

So i put on a pound but silver lining is I know why. Been feeling rotten all week and when I feel rotten, all i want is warmth and food so I pigged out majorly on friday and saturday. Now its a challenge to shift 5 lbs in two weeks to hit my mini goal. Exercise routine is changing today anyway because it needs an update and I think Im actually going to have to ban bread.... im not a chocolate or crisp person but bread is my achilles heel. So no more (which includes pizza- yet again I could happily sit and never stop eating hehe). See how it goes. Anyone else finding it hard with their other half not dieting? I keep wanting to nick bits off to the point where I have to keep myself occupied or I will!! New week new challenges- it wasn't ever going to be a smooth ride any ways so here we go!

  • I sometimes end up eating a slice of dry wholemeal bread in between meals if I feel hungry. So long as it is wholemeal bread and nothing on it, I don't think it can do too much harm. If I'm desparate for a snack in the evening I sometimes have a bowl of wholemeal pasta, or more rarely, wholemeal rice. Its got to be better than scoffing a tube of pringles, or 12 packs of crisps, or a whoel bar of chocolate, which might be the alternative.

  • Although, if you realise that wholemeal bread is digested to glucose faster than table sugar, there are many better ways to eat.

  • Hope you can manage to give up the bread! It can be quite a challenge. You might need to up your protein a little to help you to not feel hungry, and have as much high fibre veg as you can. Nuts like almonds can be good for a snack if you are hungry.
