Weigh In #26

I have mixed emotions tonight.

On the one hand I only lost half a pound (after watching what I ate on my weekend away in London and counting every single syn).

On the other hand I WON WOMAN OF THE YEAR. Ahem. I got a gorgeous bunch of flowers, a certificate and a lovely silver pen (which is going on my desk at work and I'm going to make everyone address me as Woman of the Year. Ha!).

On another hand (I am a multi handed beast), I'm too fat to go on to the District finals! Which I think is fairly fattist of a slimming organisation. I'd need to be 11st 5lbs or under to be eligible.

So there were highs and lows at group this week. I'm extremely chuffed to have won though as I seriously never win anything! And it's lovely that so many people nominated me, as I'm not the most vocal member of my group by far and I wasn't sure many people noticed me! We had to give a little speech about our weight loss journey and I nearly shed a little tear when I talked about everything that's happened over the last year. I guess I really have come a long way.

Onwards and upwards to get my four stone award next week (I hope).

Starting Weight: 227 pounds
Current Weight: 172.5 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: 0.5 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 54.5 pounds
Target Weight: 140 pounds

32.5  pounds to go!

Ah stuff the district finals doll...you're a winner to us lot and a friggin' awesome inspiration to boot! You don't have long to go now and you'll soon be able to flick the finger at the last year AND certain people knowing that you look incredible ;D x x x x
