It was the sausages that did it...

The promise I made myself when I started weight watchers back in January was that I was going to use my blog as a way of staying accountable for my eating decisions.  I figured that if I made my journey public it would help to keep me on track so it's confession time....

It was the sausages that did it...the smell wafting from the oven as they cooked...it was the soft white buttered bread and real Heinz ketchup that made my mouth water.  I managed to give the kids their treat of sausage in bread (such a kiwi thing, we use hot dog buns in the UK!) and make my own green juice as I intended to eat my salmon and veges that night.

What happened next...well I think I must have been possessed as I haven't just eaten one sausage but two ( have to say they were absolutely delicious).  I instantly feel guilty, beat yourself up kind of guilty, but come on Kate let's put this into perspective, two sausages, soft soft soft white bread (sorry drifting off again, mouth watering) and ketchup up against the last two months of my new life eating fresh green juices, raw vegetables, fruit, nuts and fish, the two don't really compare!  It was a stumble, that's all just a stumble.  I have to say though of all the foods I thought would make me stumble, a sausage really??  I could understand it if it had been Mum's roast or a juicy steak but a sausage? Didn't know I particularly liked sausages but apparently I do!

The whole concept of weight watchers is not to deny yourself.   There will always be times you stumble on your weight loss journey the biggest thing is not to let that stumble turn into a full on avalanche.  The difference for me and why I am sticking to the filling and healthy foods and denying myself various food groups is to see whether it will help with the aches and pains, which is has done on an incredible level and is totally worth the exclusion of some foods from my diet.

Interestingly the following day after 'Sausagegate' I felt really rubbish, my digestion was totally shot, I felt sluggish and I had a headached from hell.  I was pleased to reach out and drink my green sludge, sorry I mean my delicious apple and celery glass of heaven the next day plus my  fish with veges that evening.  It doesn't take your system long at all to get used to a new way of life and if this has proved anything to me it really is that 'we are what we eat'.

The good news this week is I have lost my 1 kg for Million for a Million, making my goal just 1 kg from my reach.  I simply can't believe my weight loss goal is so close.  I know I want to lose more now but to have my original goal so close to my sights feels absolutely amazing.  I have tried so many times to lose weight in my life and have never manage it.  My confidence is soaring and I feel so healthy!  I have ditched the big clothes and Bridget Jones knickers and looking forward to being the person I always knew I was and that has been hiding under a couple layers of fat for years.

Have a great day folks
