This week I lost another one and a half pounds, so I’ve lost just shy of half a stone in time for my holiday to NYC which starts bright and early tomorrow morning. This means I can fit into my evening trousers (yay!) and will feel more comfortable in my clothes while I’m away. I thought it was going to be good news at the weigh in because I noticed that my normal jeans are embarrassingly baggy around the bum and will have to be consigned to the charity bin. Now, I realise that this could be false optimism, as five days in NYC could land me right back where I started, but there will be lots of walking to mitigate the effects of cocktails, bagels and the odd Krispy Kreme.
