Tuesday 25 August 2009

Breakfast (finish 10.42pm) - 200g yogurt, 100g strawberries and seed mixture.

Dinner (finish 6.50pm) - reward meal.

Well two big things happened today - I weighed in at 1.6kgs down (yay!!) and I had a reward meal. I spoke to my consultant about it, we went over all the pros and cons and frequency, etc. It was a really good chat. We'll see how it affects my weight, though she did say she's more concerned about my health than my weight when talking about junk food, which stands to reason.

I left in two minds - half my brain focused on the short term (which means tolerating cravings until I reach goal and dealing with them then) and the other half on long term (which means satisfying them as I go so I don't have months worth of pent up frustration once I reach goal). The second half won.

So.... what did I have? Well believe it or not, the very first thing I had was a ham and mustard sandwich on seed bread. Yum! That's really what I wanted, lots of ham in it (proper ham, not the loaf style). I had a piece of mint fudge, two biscuits and felt ill. Ewwww I'm not looking forward to doing that again.

Which is a good thing. I am no longer curious :)

Thanks everyone for your support, it means everything.

Have a good night!


  1. I am ok with cravings and hunger. It will pass if/when I change my focus and give it some time.

  2. Well done, Erika! You're progressing so very well! :-)
