Using a ring organiser to lose weight – Part 2

Hello readers! Paula is back today with her second post for The Diet Project.

Hi everyone, here we are at the beginning of the third week of my diet and it’s time to give you an update on the project. At the beginning of the week everything was starting to come together with my diet and I really believed that I would have a good weight loss but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.  Although I’m despondent I felt I needed to be honest with you so therefore I’ve written about how I was feeling in the Notes section of my Amazona.  Below you can read what I’ve actually written.

I’ve been using my diary pages to keep track of things that can have a negative effect on my diet.  That said I’ve also used it to make notes about when I have good days as well.

I’ve tried to be as rigid as possible with my diet but I was led astray last Friday by the lovely buffet at the Filofax offices in Burgess Hill where one of the Philofaxy Meetups was held.  I also succumbed to pasta at the London Meetup at Vapiano but drank only water.  Plenty of fruit and fresh vegetables have been included in my diet over the week to replace carbohydrates.

My Amazona has some wear and tear along the edges but you have to expect that with a Filofax that’s been well loved.  What I did this week was cover up some of the wear and tear lightly with a black permanent marker.  Before the ink had time to dry I rubbed my finger over it giving the cover up a more natural look.

This week I made the Amazona a healthy looking page marker.  I’m not saying it will make me more motivated but I like to think it looks good amongst my organiser pages.

Hopefully next week I won’t get tempted by too much unhealthy food. Next Thursday is my birthday which can often lead to the temptation of yummy things.  Also next Monday I am meeting up with a friend who I haven’t seen for 26 years but hopefully again if I have something to eat I won’t  get too carried away.  I’m remaining positive and hope that I will be able to reveal a good weight loss in my next post.
