Weigh Day (DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!)

I lost 1.5lbs this week, which is a mean feat considering my weekend! (see previous post!)

Was feeling so happy with myself this morning but sitting here just now, I’ve just thought ‘yup, 1.5lbs is a good loss but not good enough’. I weigh 17st 8lbs. That’s not a typo. Seventeen stones and eight pounds.

That single fact, my friends, makes me feel sick with myself. I joined Weight Watchers last year weighing 18st 13lb. The heaviest I have ever been in my entire life. It was following at a point in my life when I had a whirlwind of emotional issues and stress and piled on 5 stone in 6 months. So obviously, since then I’ve kept off almost a stone and a half but in an entire year and at this size it is just not enough. 

I’ve decided now that this time, this time it is THE time for me. A few years ago I lost 42lbs to weigh 13 stone which is the lowest weight I’ve ever been in my adult life, and it really suited me. Still bigger than what is conventionally beautiful/slim, but I was in a good place. That’s my proof that it is possible for me to succeed because I have done it before!

My aim for this final weight loss journey to goal (and never going back to being obese!) is to be a size 12. I don’t mind at what weight that comes. If I can achieve that I will be ridiculously happy, and then I will review whether my weight is healthy enough or still a way to go.

Completely do-able, I think, if I stop messing on and just get my head into gear.

Slim me, I’m coming for ya!!!

Monday, Monday

Good afternoon everyone, and a happy new week to you!

Monday is such a weird day for me, it’s the start of a lovely new week for most of us, but as I get weighed on a Tuesday its the end of my ‘diet’ week. By Monday night I’m either feeling really chuffed with myself or wishing myself into a big black hole so I don’t have to face the scales the next morning! What is your usual Monday vibe? This week, I am sort of in the middle.

I had a fab weekend partying for my dad’s birthday, it typically consisted of lots of yummy food and cakes. I didn’t go overboard, but I did indulge! Alcohol consumption was zero, which I think will have limited the damage slightly. I intended being back on track yesterday but it just didn’t happened how I’d planned, wooops! Anyway today so far I’ve had 50g Bran Flakes topped with banana and skimmed milk, and about to have some wafer thin ham, cottage cheese and lots of salad for lunch. 

Just for anyone wondering, I’m following the Weight Watchers Pro Points plan. I really enjoy it, compared to other plans I’ve tried in the past I find it really flexible to fit in with general life, whilst also keeping my portions in check which is one of my major issues with food! If I fancy choccie I can have it, if I want to splurge I can using my weekly allowance, if I fancy a strict day I can leave some points over. Currently, I am allowed 40 daily points which is lots considering the lowest allowance is 26, so I can’t wait to see the points go down each week!

Well, I think I’ve rambled on quite enough for now. Good luck for this week, I can feel it in my waters it’s gonna be a good one!!
