Weigh in

1lb off today.

If this was a normal week I'd be quite happy with that. However, considering I magically gained 2lbs last week, it's not really that great. I'm still 1lb heavier than I was.

I'm trying to focus on the positive. I didn't let last week's bat shit crazy scale time send me hurtling into the biscuit tin and overall the trajectory is downwards. This is all good stuff.

But it's not exactly motivational stuff. We're well into March and I've lost a grand total of 5.25lbs. Big wow. If I could just get past the half stone mark I would feel like I was actually getting somewhere. I had a mini meltdown earlier this week when my boss, who is a size ten, mentioned she was on some bonkers diet plan involving no carbs and cup a soups - and then reveals she lost half a stone in a week.  I could have wept.

On top of that, there is a what's app group that about seven of us are in. It's like one big chat room for us all. Most of them are on slimming world and going to zumba (shoot me now) and they have mentioned in passing a few times that they are all losing loads of weight. What the chuff? Why is everyone around me dropping the pounds and I am barely scraping by?!

I've calmed down now but I'm still feeling pissed off. What's a girl to do though? I've just gotta get on with it. I will lose that half stone, and more. It might take me till Christmas but I am going to get there. In fact, make that 2014 as this weekend holds yet another challenge in store as I'm away on a hen weekend. I have no idea what is happening foodwise and so I'm just going to have to hope there are some healthy choices I can make -- and I'll take some fruit with me too.

In other news, CrossFit is going really well. Last night I managed to do a hand stand against a wall! I'm so glad I signed up and I do feel less wobbly, fitter and stronger but I know twice week isn't really enough - even including when I cycle there and back (over 4 miles in total). I need to get out there and sweat, hard to help me shift the lard. But where is the time?  Busy tonight and tomorrow and then I'm away till Sunday.

I've just gotta do what I can do and keep on keeping on.

  1. Keeping on keeping on is all any of us can do. And, if it's any consolation, I find reading your blog incredibly motivational - although it makes me quite tired! You may not be losing half a stone a week but you have lost weight consistently, kept it off and made significant lifestyle changes. That's what we're all aiming for!

    Enjoy your hen weekend.



Go on then, spill.
