Losing the lot

Very very slowly.

It's been a minute.

I have been avoiding my blog. But while I have been avoiding writing, I haven’t been avoiding Weight Watchers. I’ve been doing WW (counting points, trying meet my ActiveLink goals, meal planning, cooking, etc.) but it hasn’t been working very well. I haven’t posted about my last three weigh in…

I piled on weight when I was on prednisolone, and got the dreaded moonface. Also, it made me feel completely unhinged - felt like I was going mad - and I really hated it. I wasn’t even on it for that long, but I really hated it. 

I got back into doing calligraphy as it forced me to focus my mind (doing repetitive drills of letters) and kept me a little bit sane. Also kept me away from constantly eating.

I hope you get through things. I understand how you feel.

FMLS90 Catch-up: Days 11 & 12
My meal schedule is pretty regular: three meals a day with the kids.
7-8am : breakfast
12pm : lunch
5.30pm : dinner
I am attempting to drop all snacking (see below), so that is it really.
Right: now, onto snacking.
I have a real problem with mindless snacking. One is never enough. 
The plan is that I drop all between-meals eating, at least for the moment. When I was doing Weightwatchers last year, it was the snacking that I really had problems with. Particularly sugary and carby things. So I am attempting to reduce my carb intake across the board, and fill my meals with good quality protein in the hope that I can drop the snacks completely.
Earlier this year I read a few of the ‘sugar is evil’ books (Dr. John Briffa, Dr R Lustig), and I liked them. So, I am tentatively adopting a watered-down version of their advice to cut back the carbs.

Food diary

Breakfast was a special treat this morning. Pancakes, with fruit and yogurt. Ate loads.

So lunch was kept simple: a fruit smoothie (with a bit of protein powder and ground flaxseed).

AND NO SNACKING :-)

Doing well logging everything on MFP. I am seeing very clearly why I thought I should be losing weight but wasn’t. Those little bits and pieces I would forget to (or choose not to) log all add up.

Will catch up with Day 11 and 12 of the FMLS90 Challenge later today.

calypsoandatlas asked: Hey there! I came across one of your posts (apparently I'm not allowed to link to it) titled "New stationery, Yay! " with a beautiful notebook that had "Recipes 2014" on the front and a gold Sheaffer laying on top. I was wondering if you remembered what brand of notebook that is. It is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you in advance :)

Hi,

It is branded ‘Fountain’ (and by Collins I think), although sadly it isn’t great paper for fountain pens.

Cheap though, considering how pretty it is.
