First weeks weigh-in

Saturday, July 06, 2013

First weigh-in with my "Swedish Spark". Made sure that it would be nervous by eating a pizza yesterday... but I had one kilo down whoch is certainly better than one kilo up. The problem with weighing is that it triggers all the ghosts in my brain that wants me to overat - first they tells me to starve to get beter results, thanit will end with bingeing... this is the day to use "One day at the time" "Take it easy" and "Most important first"...

We went to test a "lajv"-concept yesterday, daughter and me. It took about three hours and we impersonated three different characters, spending a weekend in a summer cottage together. We quarrelled a lot over small things and then one of us died, we visited the funeral and then got to do that weekend all over again - now solving our conflicts.

It was fun and interesting - daughter was not as happy as me, she likes the vampire scenarios better.

A hard week foodwise is coming up. Daughter is here and havingher birthday, a frriend of hers comes to spend a few days and that friend is a vegetarian and I need to plan for food that works for all, I think it might be some Mac&cheese-meals for the young ones and salds for me.

And lunch yesterday:

placie, mash, aioli, salad - I was late and had to cook really fast!

    Wow! You do do some interesting things. Gives me ideas! Congratulations on the 1 kg, that's terrific. More than I usually lose. I agree with Joyinky, we need to remember weighing in is ONLY a tool, and just one of many! I weigh in tomorrow. Sometimes I gain. We had a party with our 4th of July and I ate some dip and chips. But I bypassed the cupcakes that one lady brought for dessert. Get yourself some fruit while they have cake.

    I know it's hard to cook for other people and varying diets. Salads go a long way. Do you eat boiled eggs? They go well adding protein to a salad.

    MP you are doing great. Sending you an angel to help you with the busy week ahead!

    Let good health be your driving goal, not the scale; you give it too much power. It's just a tool. Have a wonderful weekend with DD and friend; it's about a whole lot more than food! I know you know that! Be well.

    I think 1 kg is a very good result. I think going faster would not work / be healthy.
    You're doing well!
    PS I like your plates! :)

    Well done MP - down is definitely good for all of us. emoticon

    The time with your daughter must be a joy - Happy Birthday to her.
    The "lajv"-concept sounds great - what interesting things you find to do - brave too.

    LOVE your daily food pics btw,

    Have fun with your daughter and her friend.
