I've never been the slimmest girl around. I'm not very overweight but being a shorty every extra pound counts and I've always wanted to be about 20 pounds lighter than I am. I have a nice waist which works well with my 50s dresses but I'm pear shaped and like a lot of women, I'd love to be a few pounds lighter.
One of the good things about rationing is that it makes me feel in control and confident about my diet and the way I'm eating. I know what I have for the week and I know it has to last. It's simple, unprocessed food with the odd treat. Once it's gone, it's gone and because I feel we're eating so well in the house I feel I can have a bag of chips on the prom without a guilty conscience.
I last weighed myself at the end of march, and when I weighed myself this morning I found I'd lost 4lbs! It's not a massive amount but I've had chips and everything! I have PCOS which can make weight loss quite hard. I'm not going to weigh myself more regularly but I will again next month and I'll let you know how I get on.
