Weekly weigh in – 1.5lb lost

Weekly weigh in – Finally, it’s headed back in the right direction! It’s not as much as I was hoping for, but I think I have to be realistic now and stop thinking I can go back to losing big amounts like I did in the first year.
Slow and steady wins the race, as they say!

 

I set a Christmas goal today and that’s to be back down to 22 stone 8lb (the weight I was when I got my 8.5 stone award) by the last weigh in before Christmas. That’s 10 weigh-ins to lose 13lb.
I can do it!

Weekly weigh in – Rubbish week again

It’s been a rubbish week again and I feel like I’m destined to stay this weight forever because I’ve been up and down this stone for months now.

I gained 3.5lb today at weigh in which means I now need to add another number onto my chart and remove the pounds I lost over the last couple of weeks.

I’ve been fine about it all day but tonight I’m fed up with it all. It’s probably because I’m tired. When I wake up I’ll be back on track with my head in the right place but for now, I’m going to go to bed so I don’t make things worse and start eating more food because I’m feeling rubbish.

I’ve got to just pick myself up, dust myself down and start all over again.

Again.

Weekly weigh in – 1lb lost

1lb lost this week and I was disappointed because I was aiming for 2lb.

I soon stopped that nonsense and celebrated the fact that I’m 1lb closer to my 8 and a half stone weight 🙂

The week ahead has a trip to Surprise View to remember the lovely Jack followed by a fish and chip lunch.
Far from dreading the fish and chips because of the high syns, I’m going to work in the syns with the rest of the week’s syns so I should still see a loss next Wednesday 🙂

Kaycee and Ella are going to help me organise a menu for the week in a little while so I’ll be set up for a good result!

 

Weekly weigh in – 2lb lost :)

 

YES!

After a terrible few weeks of gains I’ve finally got myself back on track and I’ve lost 2lb.

I’m really pleased because that was my aim and I did it! I’m in control today which hasn’t been the case on a Wednesday for a while; I get myself into the mindset that because it’s Wednesday I don’t have to worry about what I eat. Wednesday was a treat day but instead of having just one treat I’d eat for the sake of it.

I’ve had a piece of chocolate cake today for my treat but instead of ignoring the syns, I checked how many syns it was using the app and I’ve counted them into my allowance.

I will lose another 2lb next week 🙂

160lb to go

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 🙂

Slimming World Weekly Update

I’m back with my Slimming World weekly update in the hope that sharing every week will help me get back to losing instead of going up and down this flipping stone!

lose weight

I did have my 8 and a half stone award. I’ve now put a stone back on so I’ve currently lost 7 stones 7 and a half pounds in 2 years.
I lost 7 stone in the first year so you can see how rubbish my second year has been. All I keep telling myself is that I’m not going back to 31 stone so even if it takes years, I’m sticking at it 🙂
I don’t want to be in this stone bracket anymore. I want to get back to the previous one and by Christmas get out of the 20s all together 🙂

So here’s my pledge to myself:

100% on track this next year so it’s as good as my first year with 7 stones lost.
No uncounted treats.
Daily exercise (as soon as my bad back is better)

Goals for this week:

Meal plan for the week to help keep me on track
Drink a glass of water with lunch and dinner instead of diet coke
Move as much as my back will allow

I’m joining in with Well Being Wednesday and the Madhouse Family linky 🙂 I should have written this yesterday but the time ran away with me, what with it being the last day of the school holidays!

Slimming World Woman of the Year

I can’t believe I won Slimming World woman of the year at my Slimming World group. I want to thank everyone from my group for voting for me 😀

I think everyone who’s following my journey knows I’ve struggled with it this past year. I lost 7 stone in my first year and only 1 and a half stone my second year.

Slimming World Woman Of the Year

The fact that I haven’t given up and put it all back on is down to my lovely consultant, Sue, and all the members who support me every week.

This came at just the right time for me as I’ve had a big gain this week and was feeling quite down about it.
I got home from group and gave Ant the 2 packets of Reeses peanut butter cups (approx 30 syns for the 2 packets) I had intended to eat and not count the syns because I was feeling crappy and I’ve been totally on track today, even working out the syns for a portion of our homemade ice cream and sticking to that portion! It was 12 syns but oh my it was totally worth it!

I have the determination I had when I first joined 2 years ago and I want this next year to be as good as the first.
I’ll be happy, though, as long as I weigh less in a year than I do now, even it’s only 1 and a half stone lower because it’s 100 times better than being 10 stone heavier 😀

 

Slimming World – Back on track

Slimming World – Back on track
I’ve been struggling since last September, stuck in the same stone all that time just going up and down, up and down like a yoyo.

It was starting to get me down but I never let it get to me so much that I stopped going and I’m really proud of myself for that. I’ve been overweight my whole life and tried numerous diets with no success, mostly because i didn’t stick with them when I had bad weeks. I wouldn’t put them behind me and move on, I’d get fed up and give up.
Slimming World worked straight away and I lost 7 stone in my first year so I know it works for me. I don’t know why it’s not been working lately but I do know I feel positive again and because I didn’t give up, I didn’t put all the weight back on, which I could have easily done so I don’t have to start all over again!

I was losing a stone every 6-9 weeks until my first anniversary when I received my 7 stone award then it took 27 weeks to get my 8 stone award.
I’m now working towards my 8 and a half stone award and only have 2 and a half pound to go 🙂

Wish me luck!
