So it’s been a long while since I’ve done a weigh in. Since my hours got upped at my second job, weight loss has flown out of the window – I was getting really unhealthy, not eating for 9-10 hours and then having a massive meal late at night when I had time and drinking full sugar drinks to get me through 13-15 hour shifts on my feet with a 5 minute break here and there.
Not fun at all. My hours have been cut back a bit to allow for a day to work from home. This means that I have four days at home and three days away. Things have settled a little now so I have to get back on the wagon and what better time than just before Christmas
Anyhow, I haven’t weighed myself since July. Even my scales had died, it has been that long! I remember I had just been ill and I managed to get to 14st 12lb. I have since, over the last 4 and a half months, put on 4lbs to weigh in at 15st 2lb. Not bad I suppose, considering I was getting to a point I was so exhausted, I was permanently eating out or bringing takeaways home.
So, onto bigger and better things. I’m going to try and stay away from the mince pies at work and try and eat healthier at the restaurant. Drinking more water is key and eating more regularly so I lay off the full sugar lemonade. I’m so lethargic and suffering from insomnia at the moment so a regular schedule would probably do me the world of wonders. I need my energy and spark back!
Goal for next week: 1lb loss (let’s start small to begin with!).
Until next time.. x
Just a quick one from me. Sorry I didn’t manage to get any photos from my get together with friends. I was just so busy with food and then so hungry that I totally forgot – typical!
I did manage to go to weigh in yesterday though. Our group has been moved to a Tuesday which is a bit hard for me to get to as it’s earlier (6:15pm) and I don’t finish work until 6:45pm. I really wanted to go though as the new packs were out and I wanted to get my head around it before the New Year,
So, considering I haven’t been to group since mid-December and had been eating out non stop since then (I know.. don’t frown at the screen in disapproval!) I did gain but not as much as I originally expected. I weighed in at 15st 8lb (it was flitting between 7.5 and 8) with a 4lb gain. It’s not unexpected but I’m not angry either. I guess it didn’t help too much having weigh in the day after a massive dinner!
So yes, I am getting back on it (slowly). The next couple of days are going to be half SW days as it’s New Year etc but from the 2nd I will be doing the new plan and will hope to get a loss at the weigh in on 7th Jan – fingers crossed!
I will probably do a little blog post over the New Year about the changes to the SW plan once I get my own head around it. From first impressions though, it doesn’t seem too different and a lot more streamlined. On the SW facebook groups (the normal ones, not group based) there seems to be a lot of scaremongering about the new plan and people outright refusing to do the new one, etc so I want to make sure I have all my facts right beforehand as I wouldn’t want to set off WW3 (though that may have already happened in the FB groups!).
So, until next time.. x
