Weigh in

 Hello my little chickadees

Today is a good day. The sun is shining, I have booked flights for a week in the South of France and I lost 3.25lbs when I weighed in. Yes, you read that right three and a quarter pounds! Boo yaaaaaa!

What the frick is that all about? Earlier this year, shifting an ounce was a gargantuan challenge but somehow, in two weeks, I've lost half a stone! Back of the net! I've altered my stats so that my starting weight was the heaviest I've been this year, rather than what I was at the first 2011 weigh in.

While my body is mystery to me sometimes, there are three things I did this week that no doubt made a difference.

1. No alcohol. I had a weekend off the booze and not a drop passed my lips all week.
2. Stayed on plan. Yes, Thursday of last week was a shitter of an eating day and Friday was dubious but after that I did not deviate once. Clean eating, loadsa fruit and veg, not so many carbs.
3. Exercise. I worked out on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Hard. Sunday was body attack (something new) and on Monday and Tuesday I totally mixed it up at the gym. I've been doing the same thing for far too long, in the same order. I did the same stuff but for different lengths of time, some extra weights and pushed myself just that bit extra.

I would like to point out that I didn't see TB at the weekend. Yes, that most definitely helped. It is harder when he's around but I need to concentrate on this result to help me stay focused (going to his from Saturday to Tuesday morning).

I've got 7 and a half weeks before we go on hols to France. There is a half stone there (and possible more) for the losing if I really want it.

Starting Weight: 204.25 pounds
Current Weight: 197.25 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: 3.25 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 7 pounds


  1. Whooop - that's a brilliant loss!! I'm off the booze at the moment too, and I have to agree that it totally helps. For one thing, I'm not losing oodles of points to empty calories, and for a second thing, I'm not making dubious decions re my eating whilst I'm drunk - win win!

    Hope the holiday's awesome - I'm very jealous! x

  2. Well, get YOU missy! That's a satisfying chunk of lard to jettison - pray, what is your secret? Actually, if it's no booze it's not going to help me since I only have one large glass of wine a week anyway!


  3. Thanks ladies. I am well chuffed.

    P, I wish there was a secret - and then I'd be rich! Hehe.

    I honestly don't know what's done it this time as I was so so good earlier in the year and it was such a struggle to lose even half a pound. I think mixing things up has helped - both food and exercise. Lots of protein, fruit & veg and not so many carbs. Oh, and quite a lot of coffee!



Go on then, spill.
