Weigh In Monday

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is well. Been a busy day today running around doing the food shop, trying to organise my bedroom (a two-day task in itself!) amongst other things.

Anyhow was super happy at weigh in today. I weighed in at 15 stone 2.5lbs, meaning a 4lb loss this week! Really happy after the blip last week and it means that I’m only 2.5lbs to my 1 stone award and I hope that I get it next week despite eating out a couple of times in the next few days.

I’m really motivated for the next week. I’m definitely hoping I can keep up the momentum and getting to my target around wedding time 🙂

Until next time.. x

Hi guys,

So it’s been nearly a week since weigh in and surprisingly, I think I’ve done alright 🙂 I’ve been trying to go to sleep earlier and I think it’s done me a world of good and I’ve been trying to increase my water consumption back to 3L but I’m struggling a bit. Hopefully I’ll see a nice loss on the scales as although I was expecting it, I was gutted for a small gain last week. It’s definitely got me back on track and to commit myself (even more – eek) I signed up for a 4 week DietBet to make sure I get a shift on this month!

Costco Shop

Well, I had a bit of a shambles last week so there’s plenty of stuff left in the fridge. I topped up the shop with 2 boxes of clementines, a kilo of strawberries and a few books and clothes for me and OH. I also found a 3 pack of Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion for £5.49 which I thought was a bit of a bargain.


Weigh In Monday

This week I was pretty disappointed with a half pound gain. I have to admit it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting but I was a bit down on myself as I wasn’t able to build on my loss from last week. I slotted a few SP days in this week so I’m hoping for a bit of a boost. I struggled doing SP for a full week so interspersed with EE days is the best for me. I would like to aim for a 3lb loss for next week as I gained this week. I need to get a shimmy on if I want to get near my desired weight for the wedding. Going to group definitely helped as there are some people who have lost so much and the motivation they still have is amazing.

OK, think I’ve talked enough for this week.

Until next time.. x
