Over the weekend I had one naughty dessert and two glasses of wine and now I have three great big spots on my nose. It serves me right as I know full well that sugar and alcohol cause my rosacea to flare up.
The dessert was rice pudding and it was far too sweet but I still ate it because I was paying for it. The wine was not worth a nose to rival Rudolph either.
I have decided to use my blog from now on so I can record the good, the bad and the ugly. Please feel free
So, from March to September I was as good as gold. I lost 21 lbs and never felt better! Down a dress size (which still left a bit to go), but I was very happy with the way things were going. I had plateaued for around 6 to 8 weeks at that point, but I had accepted that and knew if I just stuck to things this would settle and the rest of the weight would go eventually.
However, I have no idea why I lost track but I did
I started to find myself eating things I hadn't
I was introduced to the HD about 18 months ago, but I did not give myself a proper chance with it, and I found it confusing that I was able to eat quite a lot and not really have to worry, all of what I read in Zoe Harcombe books make sense, but I still struggled with the fact that you can eat quite a lot. when I have been Slimming World Member and a Weight Watchers Member and I would lose weight on there diets, but I would put it all back on and double!
I work shifts and always use
So I have attempted this diet before and felt grumpy, bad tempered and as though it just didn't fit in with my family life.
However I started again this New Year and couldn't feel more different. I feel happy, in charge of what I'm eating (not obsessing or thinking about what I can / can't have) and feel calm that whilst I have 2 stone to lose it will be achievable whilst following this eating plan. At the moment I haven't got time to exercise other than my bike ride to and from school
