5lb 4oz gone!! Yes, it is that specific.... I would be happy with whole pounds, but hey, my CDC does all the maths for me!

I lost

another half pound. I guess eating out Sat (Red Rose), Mon (Il Gusto), Thurs (Bel), Fri (B @ home) and Sat (Red Rose) is not conducive to weight loss....!!

I have to say that yet again I felt in control and stuck to meat and veg. I did digress and had one poppadaum on Friday and about a quarter of a Keema Naan on Saturday so kicked myself out of Ketosis - still I seem to have got back in ok. Oh, did I mention the bottle of wine on Saturday and at least half a bottle of wine Friday...... I am disappointed in myself but at the same time I have a long haul ahead of me and need to learn to control myself when out - apart from the drinking at home I am doing ok!

New Car

How cool!!


In front of the TV, in a warm, snuggley jumper, just me and B (oh and the cats)!

This week we have been visited by B's parents. They always visit him (now us) in November for a week and do some decorating. I say some, for the last 2 years they have done a superb job on 2 large rooms! I did my first glossing - not as difficult as it is made out to be....

Unusually I have struggled my way through this week. I have been well for ages now but this week I have had a migraine and regular headaches, some of which were threatening to be migraines...... I don't know what provoked it all but it has been a hard work week.... I am guessing a combination of car collection, decorating, paint fumes and also that it is just never the same when you have guests.

Weight - I lost another 2 1/2 pounds last week so have now lost around 17lb! This week, with B's parents here I have eaten out a few times, but have been very sensible so I am hoping to have stayed the's hoping!

Cambridge Diet

Ok, I know I have written about a few different weight loss attempts during my time blogging, so it will probably come as no surprise that I have embarked on another one. I am now on the Cambridge Diet which is a very low calorie diet and involves shakes and soups instead of normal meals. Now I know it seems a little extreme but I have to do something, my weight is continuing to increase and I have a very bad relationship with food which means I seem unable to muster enough will power to eat a healthy, low calorie diet for long enough to reduce my weight....... Stupid I know.......

Anyway, I am just at the end of my second week, I have done really well at sticking to it and I am really really impressed at how easy it has been! I have actually eaten some food this weekend. I was my Aunt's 60th birthday in September and the family got together this weekend to celebrate. We went to The Stone House Hotel in North Yorkshire and were booked in for dinner, bed and breakfast (months ago) so I decided to eat but plan and not over indulge. I was very proud of my restraint and only ate protein and veg, drank one glass of red wine and lots of water. I drew a line and stuck to it - so very proud of myself.

The Stone House was great - the food was excellent, rooms lovely and service great!

If anyone is reading they may have noticed my 'ticker' at the bottom of the page - it will show my weight loss - there will be losses!!
