Weigh In #23

Could I be any more pleased? No. No I couldn't.

4.5 pounds and a loss of 50 pounds in total! I can't quite believe that I've lost 50 pounds. It just seems like such a huge number. Plus I don't actually feel like I look THAT different. Although my friend (who's been travelling for three months) told me that she barely recognised me. So maybe I do!

I am really chuffed with my loss this week but I do think I deserve it. My eating was 100% on plan, only one gin and tonic all week and I stuck to 6.5 syns a day. There were many times I felt like reaching for the Ben & Jerry's, but I didn't. Until after weigh in anyway, when I weighed myself 100g of Chocolate Macadamia (13 syns) and relished every mouthful. I even ate it with a small spoon so it would last longer!

I also got my 3.5 stone award last night. Finally. It feels like this one's been a long time coming!

Starting Weight: 227 pounds
Current Weight: 177 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: 4.5 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 50 pounds
Target Weight: 140 pounds

I'm doing a little happy dance for you, Helen.

SO pleased for you - that's really fantastic. Well done you! And well done on being so good. Plus your 13 syns are totally allowed after your week of 6.5 syns. I'm all about the flexible syns and the having 12 one day and 8 the next :-) The leader of mum's group tells us to think of it as 70 syns over a week rather than 10 a day, and besides, you deserve a celebration after your fantastic 50 pound loss!

Okay, I'm rambling. I'm just very, very happy for you, especially after you were so low last week. GO HELEN!!!
