Weekly weigh in update – A few days late!

I should have done this post last Wednesday after my weigh in at Slimming World but I’ve been distracted by some home improvement projects we’ve started….more about those another day 🙂

Last week my eating was under control. I stuck to plan and counted all my syns and expected at least a pound loss.

You can imagine how disappointed I was to step on the scales and see a half pound gain.
I know half a pound isn’t much but it feels like a lot more than it is when you’re expecting a loss.

As it stands, I’ve gained a stone in the last few weeks but I’m not giving up.

I will get back down to 22 stone 8lb which is the weight I achieved to get my 8 and a half stone award and then I’ll work on getting 2 pounds a week off after that.

I need to lose 162 pounds to get to my goal weight (which I’ve set to 12 stone at the moment. I’ll see how I feel when I get there and decide whether I need to lose more) before my 40th birthday in July 2016.
Losing 2lb a week from now until then would mean I’d lose 190 pounds by my birthday so taking into account things like Christmas and birthdays etc I feel confident that I can lose 162 in the time I have left 🙂

I weigh in again on Wednesday and after letting the gain last week get to me, I binged Wednesday night. I know it doesn’t help to binge, it just makes me feel like crap but when I get it into my head I can’t control it.

I woke Thursday morning with a renewed sense of determination and I’ve been totally on track all week. I’ve stuck to the minimum 5 syns per day to try and make up for all the syns I had last Wednesday but I don’t know if it’s going to be enough.
I’m not going to have another Wednesday like that though, no matter what the scales say.

From here on in I’m attacking those 162 pounds because I’ve had enough of them hanging around!
I’ll mark off the numbers each time I lose a pound 🙂

    YOU WILL DO IT!!! It's those damn numbers on the scales that taunt us isn't it? I just had my birthday, and indulged way too much, and today is a weigh in for me. I don't even want to know.

    You sound so much more sensible than me. A 2lbs a week loss is something attainable and realistic. I set the bar so high for myself that I fail more often than not. Add on a star week, and well, I'm back to square one.

    Once you break through the barrier, you'll be back on track, I know you will. You've achieved so much and kept it off so far, so you've got half the battle won!

    Thank you so much for linking up with me! #WWDISL xxx
