Food Diary 23rd June

Didn't bother coming on to post last night as I was having a bit of a crappy feeling evening. I'm not really sure what was wrong - something just felt wrong! Then when I looked in the mirror as I was doing my workout I just looked so gross, I seemed to have balooned and gaind rolls of fat on my tummy so that got me feeling a bit down.
Can't think that anything I had during the day yesterday would've made me massivley bloated but I was back to looking ok this morning anyway - must have been in my head!

This last week I've been feeling rather amazed that I've lost so much fat and still have a lot to lose. I never realised before how much weight I'd put on and had always thought that I had maybe a stone to lose. I've got quite broad shoulders and big hips and now amount of weight loss is going to have me squeezing into a size 8 but I think I could comfortably be a fair bit smaller than I've always thought I could be. Anyway, I'm happy with my progress and accepting that I still have a long way to go isn't getting me down, just soemthing that got me thinking.

Yesterday went well, my evening plans were a bit crap as we were going to go to the cinema and I'd decided my weekly treat was going to be then with a scoop of Ben & Jerry's Frozen Yogurt Chocolate Fudge Brownie, so I deleted my evening snakc out of my diary and ended up not going because I felt crappy and instead had peanut butter cups then a spoonfull of just peanut butter...

  1. Never underestimate the female body and its ability to bloat up like! I swear some days I look like I'm pregnant and 12 hours later I have a fairly flat stomach. Bah humbug!

    That is comforting to know!

    I seem to suffer more from bloating either due to foods or TOTM more now that I'm eating healthy. In a way it's good though because it does make me more aware of effects of food on me...

  3. See my post re spin yesterday, i had unbelieveable bloating and it was awful! My sympathies!
