Weigh Ins #43 & #44


The less said about Weigh In #43 the better. I went off plan for 5 weeks and, by the time I dragged myself back to group, I'd gained 11.5 pounds. That took me back into the 160s and I was not a happy bunny. Not at all.

A week back on plan and this was the result last Tuesday... 6.5 pounds off! My biggest ever loss and I really really needed it. 2011 has been a very tough year so far and, unfortunately, my weight is always the first thing to suffer when I'm stressed out. Things seem to be looking up now though, so hopefully I might actually get to target this time!

In the mean time, here's a picture of me at my heaviest weight. This was actually taken in 2006, but I was the same weight then as I was when I started at Slimming World in January last year. I keep this picture on the desktop of my computer and look at it whenever I'm feeling down about my weight, to show myself how far I've come.



Starting Weight: 227 pounds
Current Weight: 159 pounds
Weight LossThis Week: 6.5 pounds 
Total Weight Loss: 68 pounds
Target Weight: 147 pounds

12 pounds to go!

Helen! I literally cannot believe that that is you in the photo. You look so, so different now.

Although you're stressed and things are tough and I know you get stressed about your weight going up and down a bit, you are STILL my inspiration to lose weight and do this properly.

Keep going. You're fantastic

You've maintained your weight brilliantly over the last couple of months, you should be so proud. Many other people would have gone back to 'normal' and piled on the pounds.

I love both your blogs but I''ve found this one in particular really inspirational and as someone who needs to lose some poundage herself you seem to have a lifestyle I can relate to.
