Super-quick post tonight.
I’m so pleased that I have digital scales. They measure increments of a quarter of a pound or 200 grammes.
Yes, I am getting on every day, and so far the scales are going in the right direction, even if is a quarter of a pound down a day. I fear I may be slightly obsessed though, as I took the scales to an overnight hotel stay with my other half earlier in the week. Sorry, Wayne!
So sticking to the diet IS tough, but seeing the scales go down is great motivation to stay on track. And also knowing it’s only for a short while, then I can stablise again.
There are 3 of us in the team at work trying to lose a little weight, so that definitely helps that there is not so much ‘naughty’ food around to tempt us.
And finally, thinking forward to next week, for our birthdays, we normally bring in cakes, donuts or other goodies to work. I think I’m going to have to bring some healthy snacks in as well next week! Healthy suggestions welcomed, as I don’t expect anyone will welcome a hard-boiled egg as a snack!
What about a fruit and veggie platter with some dip?
Or black bean brownies – taste as good as the real thing but loads more good stuff, and the cake people will like them too. Just don’t tell them what they are made of until after they’ve tried them otherwise they’ll just turn their noses up, LOL!
Thanks .. that’s a great idea and sneaky, too – I like!
