Well Done MrsP! It can be hard to field off disappointment but remember how far you've come, and after the wedding you'll still be able to focus on it, but without so much pressure! I started tracking calories again the last 2 days, definitely a shock to the system! I'm not being super strict about it, and i need to start weighing things more so i have more accurate information, but it explains why i've plateaued...
Sorry you're struggling, MrsC. Dieting is so much more about mindset than just finding healthy alternatives. I'm sad your partner isn't being more helpful. I don't know how old your son is, but it worries me that when he gets to a certain age he will wonder why he has to eat all his vegetables when his dad is exempt! In regards to cooking, can you just cook for yourself and your son, and if your partner doesn't like what's served he has to fend for himself? It's very good of you to cook for him, but now that there is a diabetes scare, surely your health must be more important than his food likes/dislikes? It's not fair for you to have to cook different meals when you're already so busy.
@MrsCToBee no worries, we are all allowed a good moan! No harm with that aha. That sounds tough especially with the long hours. What about slow cooker meals bulked out with lentils/ chopped veg and things? I agree with @OmRum - my downfall is cheese, i'd have it with every meal if I could. I am lactose intolerant too so it's never going to end well..
Good luck @MrsCToBee! Ahh that's amazing. Does your little one like cooking? I've lost .5lb this week. It feels oddly disheartening. I know I'm aiming to maintain now but it's weird.
Lost 2lbs this week. After my hen I'm going to up my calories again as I don't want to risk my dress not fitting if I lose much more.I did parkrun on Saturday and managed a PB which I was really pleased about! I then went out with running club on Monday and did another 5k. I have the 8k run in 3 weeks so need to try and get a few longer ones in before that.
Thanks @Hullass1972.. I'm hoping I'll be okay, it's the longest I'll have run and I'm certainly not a natural runner!
