Weigh in

Just and fair - that what this week's 1.75lbs loss is.

Yes dear readers... I have finally managed to have a weight loss that I feel truly reflects the hard work I put in this week.

In addition to three workouts, I also got right on board with the whole paleo diet and shunned carbs. My fajitas were served up on a lettuce leaf not a wrap; it was eggs for breakfast instead of porridge; sandwiches were ignored in favour of a monty pile of salad.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't paleo perfect. Over the week I...
  • Ate a few mouthfuls of white bread. There was a soft squidgy loaf at home that was all to easy to rip a bit off and shove in my gob
  • Drank normal milk in my coffee
  • Ate some cheese
  • Had 2 drinks, a rum and DC and a vodka and apple juice
  • Had sugar - in a variety of places. Namely rolos, 1/2 a muffin, licking the chocolate ganache when decorating a cake, two small pieces of caramel shortbread, 1 spoon of nutella, around 10 boiled sweets, 3 quality street
  • Ate 1 nacho and about 15 onion rings and a handful of honey roast nuts
I know that the sugar and crisps are not good on any diet (duh) and reading over that list, well... it does seem like quite a lot. More than I actually realised. But that is me going back over my food diary and me confessing every single morsel. That is a whole week (and one weekends) worth of extra.

So the plan for the next seven days is to enjoy baking club tonight (post gym) and have one or two small tastes only (which will be my dinner), enjoy my meal out on Friday with TB* which is at a Brazilian restaurant specialising in lots of meats  - so no problem with grains there and watch the portion sizes and above all - the sugar!

While I have been hacked off with my crappy losses this year - something to bear in mind is that I have actually had four losses in a row. Progress may be bloody slow but the trend is downwards!

Starting Weight: 190.75 pounds
Current Weight: 186.5 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: 1.75 pounds
Total 2013 Weight Loss: 4.25 pounds


  1. Well done on the weight loss. Little treats can add up, but listing them helps, and at least you can do better next week right? Downwards trends are great!

  2. Looks pretty good to me - and the proof of the pudding is in the eating. If ever there were a wrong simile for dieting, that is IT. I mean, of course, that you had a v respectable loss - go puss!


  3. well done, its very easy to get disheartened when the scales done move in the way we want, but your doing well and I know you can keep going at it. good luck for this week on Paleo


Go on then, spill.
