I guess on paper today looks good: I got loads of exercise and tried my best with the 30ds. Even so, my mum was watching me carefully again at dinner and I had to eat a whole Weight Watchers meal instead of just half as I usually do. I know it was only 196 calories over all but I feel so full and horribly guilty, I guess I’ll just try and eat less tomorrow. Still, it would help if she could get off my back for even one second!

Looking on the bright side, I was able to use my treadmill twice today because my mum went out (she generally only lets me use it once on weekdays). I had a bit of an argument with my brother though who threatened to tell my mum I was on the treadmill again but eventually he backed off. I love my family, really I do however sometimes they irritate the crap out of me.

In maths we had yet another Christmas pary. Pretty much everyone brought in the most unhealthy foods and there was even more pressure on me to eat than in Chemistry yesterday with chocolates, fizzy drinks, sweets, popcorn and crisps all being shoved in my face. But I stayed strong and refused everything. One of my supposed “friends” noticed I wasn’t eating and said “Oh God Izzy, don’t tell me you’re on a DIET!”, while rolling her eyes. I just smiled patiently and thought about how SHE could stand to lose a few pounds.

Another friend brought in candy canes, chocolate truffles and fudge for the class. I simply thanked her and brought my share home to “eat later”. I’m so proud of myself for overcoming all these temptations and proving above all that I’m stronger than I thought.

I am unbelievably stressed for Friday’s weigh in. If I don’t see 47kg (103.6lbs) on the scales I seriously think I’ll have a breakdown.
