But still not losing any weight. GRRR! I know it's TOTM, so that usually puts the kibosh on any weightloss hopes, but really? Still nothing. Yesterday morning I weighed in at 13st 13lbs. Blah blah and blahdy blah. Two fills and no weightloss. Still, I've taken a positive step in the battle to shed the pounds - I've started eating a 'proper' breakfast. For a while now, I'm ashamed to admit, my breakfast has consisted of a mug of coffee, and then an hour or so later another mug of coffee and two (sometimes three, and sometimes even four) biscuits (ie cookies). Isn't that awful? Everyone knows that eating a good breakfast sets you up for the day. But knowing these things is one thing (those of us who are banded knew we shouldn't have been eating all those calories that got us to needing the band in the first place, but we didn't/couldn't stop); putting them into practice is quite another matter all together. Still, for the last three mornings I have dutifully sat down with hubby and small boy and eaten a bowl of cereal, as hubby tucks into his Shreddies and small boy tucks into one, two, three, sometimes four bowls of Cheerios. He lives by the motto: eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince, dine like a pauper (I'm constantly trying to persuade him to eat 'just one more mouthful' at dinner time and he simply isn't interested, he can quite happily munch on just breadsticks and cream cheese.)
Anyway, where was I? Ah, yes, finally breakfasting like a king (or queen). And for the last three mornings I've definitely noticed a difference in my eating habits - ie I'm not looking for snacks, and I'm lasting through til lunchtime. Give that girl a gold star, it's only taken her several months to work it out.
And on an entirely different note: B00Bs 3.0. I do so hope I can make it again this year!
And on another completely different note, I thought I'd share some photos with you of a little family outing we took on Saturday to the fishing village of Beer in Devon and the town of Lyme Regis in Dorset - we're very lucky to have them both about a 40minute drive away from where we live. The sun was shining and it really was a lovely day out. And I might have had a little ice cream. Just a little one... A PB&J sundae - how could I resist? And still I wonder why those pesky pounds aren't falling off me?!
