Weigh in

Someone phone Downing Street. Get Obama on the phone. Text Putin, for crying out loud. Something major has happened... I've lost weight two weeks running!


The last time this happened was mid January. I am cock-a-bloody-hoop. COCKAHOOP, I tell you.

Joy joy joy. Unadulterated joy. This morning I weighed in at 12stone 0.5lbs. I lost 1.25lbs! I definitely felt like I had lost this week but to have it show  up on the scales, for once, was an incredible feeling. Pow POW.

I've started having all bran for breakfast and I've tried to add more into my diet, more fruit and also some wholegrains here and there.  I might also have had a few squares of the fudge I made for my the office. Okay, I also had two squares of sticky stuff (sort of homemade rice krispy squares - think melted butter, toffee, syrup and marshmallows). But I'm down with that as...

Exercise wise, this week has been the opposite of last week. I think I've done more than ever. This is because I've played badminton twice as TB is getting right into playing as part his weight loss plan. He's lost almost a stone and a half! What is it with men and how easily they lose weight?! Not annoyingly straightforward for them at all! He looks so good though and I'm so proud of him. It even  looks like he's going to have to get his kilt taken in for the wedding. 

Here is the rundown:
  • Thursday: PT session and spinning
  • Friday: Gym workout with interval training
  • Sunday: 1 hour badminton singles
  • Monday: Nothing
  • Tuesday: Half hour swim
  • Wednesday: 5 mile run (new all time fast pace!). 1 hour badminton singles. 
It's pretty obvious what my goal is for next week. 11's. Ha! Feels weird (good weird) to be writing that. I could be in the 11 stones next week. Bonkers. 3/4 of a pound is what I need to lose to get me there. Sounds like nothing. It is most definitely something.

2014 Starting Weight: 12 stone 9.25lbs
Current Weight: 12 stone 0.5lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 1.25lbs
Total 2014 Weight Loss: 8.75lbs 

My fudge, some wedding dress lace and edging (wheee!), feeling slim in my usual workout attire.


  1. Oh, that's brilliant, well done! Am so pleased for you!


  2. Fabulous!!!!! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one for whom fudge is like crack cocaine! :-)


Go on then, spill.
