    Well what a weekend it has been. T&C calls this the walk of shame and today it really does live up to it's name.
    I have had the biggest cheat weekend ever and made sure I got in all the carbs I've been craving. A few of my friends suggested that I give my body a shock because the weight is standing still so I did exactly that - went a little overboard but it was a good weekend non the less. I actually enjoyed a weekend with my friend and didn't make her feel guilty every time she ate something. I had toasted cheeses, pasta, mash, crisps on bread with mayo and didn't even go for a run. I had enough bad carbs to last me a year but I enjoyed it, I didn't eat any sweet thing because my sweet tooth is still missing and I'm not complaining.

    Before getting onto the scale this morning I knew what would happen and I was very prepared for it. I know what my mistakes were this weekend and I have accepted it even before seeing my number.
    I gained a full kilo by misbehaving as badly as what I did and the funny thing about it, is that I am completely okay with it. I knew that is what would happen but I won't let it stop me from carrying on. My journey is a long way from over and I am not going to let 1 kilo mess up the 21 kilos I have already lost.

    I know that it's the most depressing thing ever when you see that you have gained but remembering what you have lost and how hard you have worked for the shed kilos should be some great motivation to pick yourself up and start again.

    So today we are starting a new chapter - week 1 of getting mind right lol
    I will work hard and get back to my normal eating routine and who knows by the end of the week I might have lost the 1 kilo I gained.

    Hope you all are having fantastic results.

    SW 138.9kg
    CW 117.3kg
    GW 75kg
    Total Lost 21.6kg
    To go 42.3kg

    Hi there. Thank you very much. I didn't think it would be easy to get back onto this horse but surely enough I feel great today and still making great choices. My total weight loss so far has taken me 11 weeks from start to today.

    At first I was worried about you...but then I saw you actually knew what you should expect from your 'post-weekend diet', so I am glad you are now back on track again. Yes, I think sometimes we should let ourselves some freedom if we want to do something 'forbidden' LOL
    Especially given your total loss, you kinda deserved some reward :D
    Just make sure it doesn't become a regular thing, so that you will not regret later...

    Yes I know I promised myself not to get onto the scale before the official weigh in day but I just couldn't stop myself. I had to see if I have lost that scaly little one kilo I pick up over the last weekend and I am HAPPY to report it is GONE..... YAY!!!!!!:p:D
    Can't wait to get onto that scale on Monday morning to see the full weeks' progress..... Starting my weekend like that is a fantastic motivator. WHOOOOO HOOOO!!!!!!!!!
