I think I've come to the realisation that my Slim Down Sunday blogs, for the time being, are more of a way for me to not go up the scales rather than to actively try to lose more weight. Of course I want to, I still have a couple of stone to go but by forcing myself to write these posts it brings the focus back and ensures I won't be huge again.
This weeks post is going to cover this past fortnight because I haven't been well. The week before last I developed a sore throat which is never fun. Suddenly even scrambled eggs seemed like too much for me to eat and I lived off bare bones. From the Tuesday to the Friday it was sore but not the end of the world, just a typical sore throat but it was stopping me from sleeping. By Friday night I felt like it was clearing up but last Saturday morning I woke up with such a horrendous pain in my throat that I was wincing every single time I swallowed. I couldn't even bear swallowing my own spit never mind absolutely any food or drink.
Finally after a trip to a&e (I kid you not!) and a diagnosis of Tonsillitis I was sent on my way with Penicilin to choke down. So for this past week I have literally lived on a diet of ice Lollys and Yazoo. One day I ate a whole box of ice Lollys and that was it, it was the only thing I could manage. Finally towards the end of this week I've been able to handle soft food like pasta but that was it.
Either way thankfully I am better and although it's not a recommended weight loss method, I have lost 5 pounds in the past fortnight! Hopefully this will keep me going and motivate me to carry on shedding these pounds!
