Hi All. This week dare I look at the scales, I dared from 16stone 11 to 17 stone a 3lb gain. I am officially not dieting over the Christmas period, it's not that I can't, it's that I just don't want to, Which means gains and now I should lose my 1 stone badge. My mission now through Christmas is to slow this weight gain considerably and not go soo crazy, not to binge. I have made one success if you can call it that, while I was ordering my groceries online Originally I had ordered Lebkuchen, mince pies, twiglets and ice cream. Then two friends from work inspired me to keep up the good work, turn things around, so I listened and I went back online and just ended up buying lebkuchen, my favourite, though it appears I have been doing other things to ruin my weight loss, maybe for Christmas I will write a diary, so I can see exactly what I get up to when I am left off diet. I think I will be seriously motivated to try again after Christmas, but a 5lb gain in two weeks is not what I had hoped for, if you do the crime you must do the time right. Well here's to Christmas, may everyone's be full of warmth and joy, All the best. Jp.
