It's Wednesday. And on Wednesdays I check in for Tales from the Scales.
My scales seem to be broken because they wanted me to think I had lost 40lb in one week. One week, people! totally not possible, although a lovely number to see! So I suspect a new battery will be being bought at the weekend or maybe some new scales.
I've still been pretty crazy busy over the last week, travelling all over the country to see friends and having a surprise visit from another friend. So I haven't been focusing too much on the weight loss thang. And I have been drinking cocktails. Cocktails are yummy and they did a lot for my cold which is finally now beginning to clear up. So not much focus on anything related to the challenge but I start again today. It's always been a part of my plan to allow myself flexibility and not to deny myself anything and so I don't feel guilty about this week.
One thing I have noticed a couple of times this week is that I've been mindlessly eating. BUT the fact that I realised and stopped is a good thing!
Measurements again next Wednesday day, it's very tempting to do them today but four weeks seems like a better period of time to leave it methinks!
If you have a spare couple of minutes and don't mind my going completely off the weightloss topic, please take a look at these links below, they mean a lot to me.
