Weigh In Tuesday – 2lb on :(

Hi guys,

Weighed in this morning at 15st 4.75 lbs meaning a 2lb weight gain. I kind of saw it coming towards the end of the week as my sleeping pattern has gone haywire with my hayfever and some stressful family stuff going on. I’ve not necessarily been having extra meals when surviving on 3 hours sleep but I think during meal times my appetite has grown this week and I’ve not been drinking anywhere near enough water and overindulging on Pepsi Max’s in an attempt to stay awake during the day.

It’s ok though. Although my sleeping pattern isn’t quite back on track yet I’m going to try really hard to get my water intake up again and make sure I’m taking all my medication (I keep forgetting the odd one here and there and they seem to have an effect on water retention). Minimum 2.5L and I need to start exercising again rather than being lazy and taking my car everywhere which is the case at the minute! I will let you know how I get on!

Until next time.. x

WW Food Log – Tues 26.05.15 – Mon 01.06.15 – 2lb loss

Hi guys,

So my first food log on WW – it doesn’t look particularly healthy in some places and in others I think my food portions are too big but I suppose as long as I’m under points, that’s good right?

Yeah, so I think I went a little overboard in the last few days – particularly on Saturday. I did extra exercise and I think that contributed to me eating like a horse. Looking back it seems a bit ridiculous! Plus I ate four lots of pizza (1 healthified, the others not) which seems a bit much. I’ll see how I do during weigh in as looking at what I ate, makes me think I will have probably have gained!

EDIT: Lost 2lb this week. Although I think maybe I was lucky – I’m going to lay off the pizza this week!

Until next time.. x

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

Weigh In Wednesday (7th Jan)

Hi guys,

So weigh in was yesterday. I was feeling apprehensive beforehand as I’d upped my exercise from pretty much nothing to walking 2.2 miles 4 times a week. Alongside this I’ve been doing Extra Easy SP most days and pretty much increased my water intake to 3L (usually I drink 0.5-1L).

As I mentioned in my blog post yesterday or the day before I was feeling really rubbish and bloated. Weighed in today and I hit 219lbs with a 1lb increase.

I admit I’m a bit bummed but I’m hoping my body will settle and I can get going with this weight loss. It’s only eight months away until my wedding so I need to get a shimmy on 🙂

Until next time.. x
