Slimming World Weekly Weigh In Results & Food Diary #6

Another week in which I have been dreading weigh in. I've had a few too many treats this past week including a post weigh in slice of cake at Wetherspoons last Wednesday, a meal out on Wednesday evening and yes, I had pudding, buffet food and birthday cake at a party on Sunday and (last but not least) cake and a latte while out on Monday.

As a result of all of this I was very shocked to weigh in today and find out that I had lost 1/2 a pound, I know it isn't a huge amount but I had expected a maintain, or even a gain. I guess the fact that I was good for the rest of the week worked in my favour.
