Eating fest

All you thousands of lovely people who read my blog may have noticed that I didn't post last week - that's because I was still away, and I buckled, big time.  Having admirably sought out a Slimming World group near to where we were staying, I went the first week, but as soon as I left the building with the news that I had lost half a pound, I let go - I was on holiday! And what is a holiday without wine, Pringles, Minstrels, and cheese?  So I felt it would be a waste of a fiver to go to the meeting the following week, while still away.

A couple of days into my holiday eating fest, I was at the local Tesco, stocking up on salami and Pringles, and as I stood in the queue to pay I looked at the lady in front of me, more specifically her stomach.  I then looked at my own stomach, and tried to do a comparison.  Did I look like what she looked like? I wondered.  Was I as big as her?  How do others see me?  These were all thoughts going through my head.  I looked at her, and then looked at myself several times before she actually caught me doing it, and gave me an awfully filthy look. I actually thought she was going to whack me over the head, or indeed in the stomach, with her large bottle of coke.  It turned out I am considerably smaller than she is. 

On my back in the car, I tried to place an opened packet of crisps on my lap as I drove.  I was dismayed to realise that there was no room between the steering wheel and my stomach to comfortably place the crisps without them getting crushed.  The last time I was in this predicament was when I was 9 months pregnant.

So anyway, now back at home, I went to my usual SW group last night - a very brave thing to do, considering my two week gluttony - and I had put on three and half pounds.  So this week, I intend to lose four pounds or more, to get myself back on the straight and narrow.

  1. You have to be okay with that happening on vacation. The biggest thing is that you braved the scale when you got back!!! Keeps you honest. Hope you had fun! x
