Hi guys we're about to start our week three. How did you survive the weekend?
I found yesterday such a challenge.
We went for our usual visit to my parents house, my husband did some tree trimming for them, the job was done and they tried to make us stay for lunch (as they have once before when we've done little jobs)
I said I'm sorry but I'm on the TF program and I'm serving a cooked dinner for my family tonight.
Dad kept saying I've got some diet biscuits you can eat, I said no I've got a TF meal sachet in my bag but I'd rather not have a meal here whilst I'm still struggling with my diet (plus my sciatic nerve was killing me and I needed to get home to bed and rest)
He said what about giving Georgie (DH) and Mike (DS) a nice dinner. Rice isn't fattening go ahead don't be stupid. Dad kept on trying to make me feel guilty and the fact that I was on a program flew straight over the top of his head.
In the end I agreed to stay for lunch.
I helped mum make her special prawn fried rice and the bread and butter pudding. The smell was beautiful.
Whilst they ate their fatty cooked meal, I managed to find a large cup to put my TF meal sachet contents into it, I filled the water extra high so everyone thought I was getting plenty and I sipped it slowly so it would last throughout their meal.
Dad kept trying to push the alcohol and mum the coffee but I stayed strong. I was so hungry because of the food smells that when we finally got home in mid-afternoon, I was really missing my fruit and my salad (but we'd run out of salad
When evening came and I made the beef bourguignon for our dinner, I didn't have any as I was no longer hungry, I thought this will be a plus, my weight will go down by morning. Alas my thyroid gland played up and I actually gained 0.2kg instead of losing 0.5
Oh well we'll see what today brings.
