In last week's weigh in post I mentioned that I wanted to lose 3lbs this week, bringing my total to half a stone. I know that I didn't eat enough speed food last week and had two days of going over on my syns so was a little worried about my weigh in, I needn't have been worried because I managed to lose 2.5lbs! I am a little annoyed at being so close to my half a stone loss but am determined to get it next week! Carry on reading to see what I ate through the week.
