Day 17 – Cruise PP

Morning weigh in: 96.1kg *rubs eyes* what?! YES!!

Daily LOSS: 0.7kgs / 1.54lbs
Total loss: 3.8kgs / 8.36lbs

Watercheck:  2.8l 


  • Mug of coffee
  • 3 microwaved eggs
  • Oatbran porridge with cinnamon


  • Taco mince with greek yoghurt and a bit of salsa

Afternoon snack

  • Fat free fromage frais with liquid sucralose and lemon essence


  • 2x homemade beef & pork burgers
  • 2 gluten free Cumberland sausages
  • Fat free fromage frais with liquid sucralose and plain cocoa


  • 25 mins cycling to and from work
  • 30 min walk around the Meadows
  • 10 lunges each leg
  • 17 squats

I could hardly believe my eyes on the scales this morning. I shuffled them around. I cleaned the feet. I carefully lined them up with the tiles in the bathroom that I use to ensure that they’re consistently placed on the uneven Edinburgh tenement floor. Still the same result: 96.1kgs – HELL YEAH!! I’d call that a whoosh. Whether it’s just naturally in the rhythm of things or whether it’s the fromage frais doing its work, we’ll have to wait and see.

I wasn’t really feeling like walking today, but managed to get out of the house anyway. So my walk wasn’t as long as I’d have liked, but by the end of it I was just glad to get home – I’m a bit knackered…

I have a sneaking suspicion that I’ll be up on the Scales of Woe tomorrow morning – I don’t believe I can get that good a loss and not have a bounce the next day… 😉

  1. Excellent! Don’t let your joy about today be spoiled by what you fear for tomorrow. (Wow, did I just say that? Sound like some philosopher!!!)
    But seriously! Feel great about yourself today, which helps staying on track … and I *love* the expression “Scales of Woe”. Might have to steal that! 😉

    Hi Charlotte – well done!!! You must be soooo proud of yourself. I’m pleased to read this update for two reasons – firstly, cos it’s always great to have your news, I love the energy flow – really, really helps me. And 2 – because I was wondering how you did. You usually post your blog in the morning and I was worried that you’d had a horrid day and didn’t want to tell us all! Phew – thank goodness that’s not the case. Well done – keep up the good work, diet and blog!! jayne (8lbs less after 2 weeks attack then cruise).


  5. I like my fromage frais with sweetner and a little vanilla essence. Lemon sounds good too though- it’s going on my shopping list!
