Today’s weigh in saw a 1lb gain over 2 weeks. I’m actually quite pleased by this as the second week was spent on a cruise ship and, if you’ve ever been on one, you’ll know how more-ish the food is.
On board I realised that I AM capable of judging my appetite AND want versus need. It wasn’t always easy to stick to the Slimming World plan – salad and grated carrots gets a bit samey after a couple of days, plus the veg choice at dinner wasn’t always something I liked – but, even eating more bread/pastry than I should, I managed to make mostly sensible choices. My plate was never filled up (unlike previous cruises), plus I still managed to have a large glass of wine most evenings. Maybe having to push the wheelchair around for at least an hour most days helped.
So, I’ve learnt that I can possibly loosen the reins a little and, as long as I show constraint on portion sizes, it won’t bring about too much weight gain. And that, my friends, is good for my soul.
(I did go look at the gym on board but that was all I did. Far too many sporty, fit looking types for my comfort level).
