Weigh in

Thursday mornings are fast becoming my worst moment of the week. I spent the rest of the week being positive, upbeat and dedicated only to find I have put on weight, yet again. 3/4 of a pound on.

Hello 12stone 4lbs. Again.

What the actual chuff? What the hell is going on? I know there were a few things over the week that I shouldn't have had  - some wine, a few handfuls of crisps and nuts, 6 winegums and a dozen boiled sweets. But come on. Every meal was healthy balanced. Oh yeah, and I worked out, just a few times.
  • Hour of interval training
  • Spinning
  • Gym workout
  • Gym workout and 15 mins of intervals
  • 30 min swim
Some people work out a few times a week as it allows them to eat a lot more and indulge. I work out a lot, have a couple of tiny things and BAM - weight goes on. How is this possible? Let's not even talk about fair. I can't even go there.

The reality of the situation is that my last wedding dress fitting before I pick it up is (one hen weekend and) four weeks away.  Four weeks. I've got four weeks before this dress is altered for the last time. Now is not the time to falter. Now is not the time to drink wine and eat boiled sweets. If it takes me being 100% perfect to lose weight (in addition to working out like a demon) then now is the time to do just that. Four weeks of total perfection - here we go.

2014 Starting Weight: 12 stone 9.25lbs
Current Weight: 12 stone 4lbs
Weight Loss This Week: +0.75lbs
Total 2014 Weight Loss: 5.25lbs

PS) Thanks for the wedding advice. Baconsandwichgate sounds horrific! I'm actually a bit all over the place thinking about it today. Plan B continues to be an issue - bigger than I realised.


  1. I was intrigued by Baconsandwich Gate! We had Small Childrengate. Everyone has a gate! And a ladder!

    I'm sorry about your weigh in. Gains always hurt, but if they're well deserved at least one can try and have perspective. It sounds like you're doing everything you should and your body is just messing around a bit. Perhaps it thinks it already looks so damn awesome in a fitted dress that it doesn't need to go any lower? Keep going and the results will, I am sure, eventually follow.


  2. It's not fair. I'm going to say it because it always upset me when people made justifications when this happened to me. IT'S NOT FAIR. But now you have to let it go and not upset you and press on (I try and practice what I preach here I would add...). You will look beautiful if you don't drop another oz - you know this.



Go on then, spill.
