Today has been good and I am feeling more positive that I can do this. It is still quite daunting but I know that I have to do it.
I have been mulling over in my head whether to cut out wheat and gluten to see if it makes any difference. About 8 years ago I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries and I was being treated with metformin I also had to try and reduce the amount of wheat and gluten I consumed. Once I fell pregnant with my daughter I stopped taking the metformin and the wheat and gluten thing went out of the window. I am wondering if one of the reasons why my weight loss seems so slow is because I am still eating wheat and gluten.
Well the lunch with my friend today went well. I had a chicken and bacon salad which was about the healthiest item on the menu. I did have a few of Olivia’s quavers which is not so good but that was my only naughty thing today.
Tonight will be a challenge. We are going to my friend Hazels house to celebrate her birthday with drinks and canapes. I will be eating a Jkt potato with prawns before I go and intend to take some of my own nibbles consisting of wheat and gluten free crispbreads and some smoked salmon. I probably wont drink either (but I will allow my self one glass of bubbly or wine) for dietary reasons and also because I am going for a run at 9am tomorrow. This will be my first social evening with my friends whom I have bared my deepest secret to in the last few days (my weight) so I feel a bit nervous and feel like people will be looking at me thinking – Look at her she weighs xxx. Silly I know and I should be flattered that people are talking about me and also the one thing about being overweight is that you cant hide it so they all know that I am fat anyway. I will let you know how tonight goes on my next blog.
Right, time for my spud to come out of the oven. Enjoy your weekends everyone.
