Weigh In #42

I am so so chuffed with my loss this week. I have to admit that I haven't stuck to plan 100%. Mainly due to being very very poor (I last got paid in mid December and am not getting paid again until next week), going out drinking too much and having two Nando's in one day. Oops. Still, I obviously did enough and now I'm only one pound away from my lowest weight! One more pound and I'm back to my pre Christmas weight. Praise be! I also got Slimmer of the Week, which was lovely.

Usually I stick to plan 100% and never ever cheat. This last week was an exception and I've got away with it. I won't be repeating the cheating this week coming, as that's the road to disaster!

I've had a few emails from people asking me to post another typical Slimming World day for me. I'll hopefully get round to doing that tomorrow. If there's anything else that you'd like to see, then drop me an email or a comment and I'll do my best.

This week is my one year anniversary with Slimming World. What a year it's been! I'm dying to get to target now and hopefully I should be there within the next month. How exciting! Then the fun can really begin...

Weigh In #41

Just under half of my Christmas gain was banished this week. I know five pounds is a very good loss but, to be honest, I was a bit disappointed. Normally if I gain a lot of weight quickly, I can lose it in a week or so. Not this time it seems.

It's my one year anniversary at Slimming World next week and I'm extremely frustrated that I haven't hit target yet. Originally I wanted to hit it by my birthday (November), then by Christmas and then by my first anniversary. Alas it wasn't to be.

I bought a 6 week countdown this week and I want that to be the last time I ever have to pay for group.

Fingers crossed.

11.5 pounds to go!

Weigh In #40

This is the post I've been dreading writing. I knew I'd gained a lot over Christmas but getting on the scales was still a bit of a shock last Tuesday. A gain of 10.5 pounds. UGH.

To break it down a little bit though, that wasn't all in one week. I hadn't been weighed for three weeks due to various commitments and reasons. So, looking at it like that, I suppose I can call it a gain of 3.5 pounds per week for three weeks. Still not great though, is it?

On Tuesday I was pretty gutted. I got home, sat on my sofa and had a little cry. I was angry, frustrated and so disappointed in myself. I was back to the same weight that I was before I went to New York in September. Three and a half months of weight loss negated by three weeks of stuffing my face with mince pies, roast potatoes and festive snacks. Now though, I've accepted and I'm fine. I know that the weight will come off again and I know that I will hit my target within the next couple of months.

If anything, it's just given me a wake up call and shown me that I can never go back to the way I used to eat. I felt horrible by the time New Year's Day rolled around. Fat, bloated and lethargic. Which was the way I used to feel ALL the time. I never want to feel like that again.

So, I may have 16.5 pounds to go now, rather than 6, but I will get there.

Happy New Year!

Hello my slimming lovelies!

Yes, it is me. I'm back. It's been a while I know but I fell unceremoniously off the wagon shortly before Christmas and made the decision to just put my slimming on hold until the new year. Which is now here and, as promised to myself, I've been duly back on plan since I woke up yesterday morning.I was actually craving fruit and vegetables and I feel really good, even though it's only been a couple of days. Amazing how much my body has changed, I actually felt like it was crying out for healthy food!

I thoroughly enjoyed my Christmas completely off plan and I don't regret a single mouthful. I ate whatever I wanted for about ten days and it was glorious. I've probably gained about a stone but, you know what, I really don't mind. I know that, now I'm back on plan, the weight will fall back off and I'm still hopeful that I'll hit my target before my one year anniversary (19th January). But, if I don't, it's not the end of the world and I'll get there eventually.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (if you celebrate it) and that 2011 will be fantastic for all of you! xx
