Week 10, I got weighed and I cried.

It is now the midway point of week 11 and I have been trying to avoid writing this since Friday. I’m not going to lie my weigh in didn’t hit the goal and I’m fully aware as to why and yes I do want to do something about that but it’s left me a little deflated… in fact since Friday I have just been deflated.

let’s go through the numbers…

My Goals are as follows;

  1. Lose 12lbs (21st. 7)
  2. Lose 2% body fat (58.4%)
  3. Arms, lose 0.5″ (14″)
  4. Waist, lose 1″ (48″)
  5. Hips, lose 1″ (55“)
  6. Thighs, lose 0.5″ (27.5″)

So… This is What happened…

  • Lost 7lbs (21st 12)
  • Lost 1.1% body fat (59.3%)
  • Arms stayed the same (14.5″)
  • Waist lost 1.5″ (47.5″)
  • Hips lost 2″ (54″)
  • Thighs stayed the same (28″)
  • Lost 6.99% of my total weight (from start)

so I let myself down when it came to the weight loss this time around but my schedule as been messed up since finishing work.  I need to set some new goals for the next 5 weeks but in 2 weeks time I will have my proper scales back, so i’m doing another weigh in in 3 weeks (a goal of 5lbs I think is achievable) I’m moving my weigh day to a Friday and my weight will start from scratch on my proper scales. So my weight may go back up but then I will only have the one set to worry about and I think in the long run that will be the best bet.

Positives…

  1. I’ve lost 23lbs (1st 8lbs)
  2. I have lost a total of 10inches around my body
    *Arms 0 change
    *Waist -3″
    *Hips -4″
    *Thighs -3″
  3. I’ve lost 7% of my body weight as a whole.
  4. I’m feeling better about myself
  5. The slower it comes off the more likely it is to stay off

This is a good thing! It’s coming off, not as fast as I hoped but still coming off and That’s what I need to remember. a crisis of faith is happening but I need to just kick myself and remind myself as to why I’m doing this, who I’m doing this for.

ME!!!

I will get there… I’m determined to.

🙂 It’ll all work out in the end, and that is what truly matters. and hey! if it was easy I’d have done it years ago and it wouldn’t feel like an achievement.

Goal for May 6th
(slightly different due to it being new scales)

Do Not Exceed 301lbs (21st 7lbs)

  1. Have you tried tweaking your diet a little bit? I know this sounds crazy but in order to get results naturally and faster than any other is restricting your diet to a minimum. I currently eat veggies and lean meats 3 times a day, and I have been at it for weeks and yes it is working. If you want more info check out the 4 hour body book, it’s awesome.

    • Thanks, yes I have cut down on stuff I’d normally eat and stick to zero or 1 pointed foods as my activity levels have been low. as i’m moving house this week and going back to work next week my activity levels will increase and hopefully will jump start the weight loss before I jump into the gym 🙂

      • Awesome, remember that what you’re doing does not have a deadline or a number, it is a lifestyle. 🙂 Hope we can share more in the future. I am currently working on my own fitness and I am so committed to it, it’s become part of my daily routine.
