Weigh in

Another week. Another weigh in. Another gain.

1.25lbs on. Well done me.

As you can imagine I am not exactly enamoured by this turn of events. I started a post all about the injustice of it all. About all my hard work in the gym, at boxercise, on the bike, this past week. But I stopped. It's not fair. That is true, but bleating on about it isn't going to change the fact the numbers are going up.

So what am I going to do. Well, realistically - what else is there to do, apart from keep on keeping on. I'm not about to give up, nor am I about to get radical. I'm going to get my head down for another week, doing what I usually do - but with a few small changes.

Admittedly there were quite a few slip up and hand to mouth movements that shouldn't have occurred over the past week. Not 1.25lbs worth, certainly , but none the less, they were there. I need to stop that. From now on there will be no sneaky crackers, no handfuls of crisps, no chocs.
TB jetted off with work this morning and will probably be gone for around a week. I'm going to use that week to get back to eating meals that I know are winners. Smaller portions, protein, fewer carbs. More fruit. I'm also going to a new spinning class and a new boot camp class.

On the positive side - I feel pretty good. The waist of my jeans are really loose, I'm feeling pretty toned around my shoulders, arms and lower legs. I am definitely no bigger. I need to adopt the winning mentality of a winner and focus on my victories. I will not let negativity see me slide back into the 13 stone range.

Starting Weight: 183 pounds
Current Weight: 179.25 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: plus 1.25lbs
Total 2012 Weight Loss: 4lbs

  1. I know it's a bit of a poisoned chalice, but I find that if I've eaten a lot of stuff I know I shouldn't but lost weight, it encourages me to carry on like that. Just looking for the silver lining....!



Go on then, spill.
