Jamie went home today :cry: I managed to hold it together and not cry as I said goodbye because I know I'll see him again soon. But once I got home I guess I had this empty feeling and my way of dealing with it was to totally pig out. I hate myself for allowing my emotions to get the better of me, and I'm very much regretting it now as it's nearly 5am and I'm still awake because I feel so sick. Even though I fasted twice this week I still had a weight gain because I was eating crap when I wasn't fasting. I can't even justify that I tried to be good because I really didn't try. I knew I would have a gain, and I guess 1lb isn't bad (could have been a lot worse) but I'm still a little disappointed in myself that I've undone some of my hard work. Maybe I'll try 4:3 next week and try to undo some of the damage.

So, my mother has started again about this WOE, totally laying into me about it and while...

Well, it continues to go well. I have now lost half a stone. This week I have decided to do 3:4 as my holiday is only just over a week away and I wanted to make as much progress as possible. I was also reading the advice on here about weighing every day and then taking an average. Up to now I have been reluctant to do this as I think that if I am heavier one day it is too disappointing. Still, this week has been amazing so far - the weight has been steadily going down: this morning it was 9-3.75. I am hoping to get to 9-2 before the holiday. The good news is that I can now get into most of my safari trousers - some I will even need a belt with!

I was thinking about holidays - I am fortunate in that I do have quite a lot of them and often I do not enjoy them or am hugely stressed by them as I have nothing and I mean literally , nothing to wear as I have refused to buy bigger clothes whilst my weight kept on going up! Once I get to my target weight I will...

For anyone with a daft sense of humour I thought I'd start Nog's Blogs, never considered doing one before so no idea what I'm doing, but that's never stopped me in life, so here we go ....... a barmy way of looking at life without going 'off topic' or 'hi-jacking' someone elses thread :like:

Read these blogs at your own risk :confused:

Seeing as we've started to discuss Mankinis and there was a request for a picky of yours truly wearing said item :bugeyes: here we go ....... :heart:

Don't splutter on your cornflakes missus ...

Day 22 on the diet. It's going by quickly and I'm down about 2.5 pounds in 3 weeks. I had hoped to be more but I know its my own fault - weekends are a mare and I have been eating the wrong types of food too. Last night I got no sleep. As I suspected, we were back at square one with the sleep training after the weekend away. Little man woke from 315am until 550am. So I just got up. My back is much improved though but I am wrecked. Night off tonight.

Today is World Premature Baby day and we shall be celebrating it with the hospital I gave birth in. Its extremely emotional and I have a lump in my throat all morning. I didn't do the best today as I know I'd be eating out. It looked like this:

Bfast: 2slices toast (174)
Lunch: chicken sambo and chips (768)
Dinner: Haribo jellys and half pizza (536)

Total 1478 and none of it very healthy. I didn't even like my lunch and only picked at it in the pub. HOwever, its better to overestimate the calories. I wouldn't have eaten the pizza only I know...

Lost well at first with fasting then weight stabilised and couple of weeks went by without losing which at the time was very frustrating. However I recognise the pattern and kept telling myself that this was just my body making adjustments. Last week I didn't fast because of my Mum dying and surprisingly lost 2lb. I fasted yesterday and this morning the scales show another 1lb gone. I am expecting this to wobble a bit, up again then down then up and then start going down again. It seems as if every time I lose a few lbs my body needs to stop and sort itself out before I can lose any more. So instead of a nice straight line moving towards my goal my weight loss is up and down, but mainly down, it just needs time to see the overall trend.
So I feel I'm back on track. I want to be kind to myself over the next few weeks as have lots to sort out both emotionally and practically with my mum dying. But I find the 5:2 fasting very easy to do and will carry on. I've given myself until Easter to...
