No stats week…

I’ve decided not to add my Fitbit stats this week, mainly because they are AWFUL! I had a really bad week, mostly due to the weather. When you have to walk everywhere you hate turning up to places soaked, so lack of gym, lifts to or from work has made hitting my goal harder. So this week is a fresh, it’s not been the best of starts but I think I have averaged out some stuff plus Saturday I’m travelling back to the homeland *YAY*

I do have some news to share, I was at work the other day and someone who had been on holiday for a week came back and she looked at me and said those wonderful words all of us on this journey get so excited to hear…

“wow, have you lost weight?”

I ended up grinning from ear to ear and I loved it!! A long with all you lovely people that can see a difference in my pictures, it’s a proper boost builder and lets me know that just because I can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

If I get a chance I shall update on Saturday after weigh in (which I’m not expecting to be great this week after Family meals most of the week) otherwise It’ll be a very long update in about 11 days πŸ™‚

Have a lovely Friday ❀

It’s that time again…. **Brave Face**

HEY!!!

So it has been 5.5months since I started my weight loss journey using WeightWatcheers
(OMG, has it really been that long?)

Well with the big move inbetween which gave me some issues I’m not where I was planning on being at this point, but that’s okay I’m still going in the right direction but I thought I would have a look at me now compared to that dredded picture that I shared at the start of this journey, the one that made me see just how out of control I was…

Here is a side by side comparison, I am 1 dress size smaller but I honestly struggling to see a difference :/

My arms look a little different I guess.

I am hoping that in a couple months I can add another picture and be like WOW there’s a difference, but in the mean time I know I am going in the right direction and that is what we are aiming for…

Til Next Time

πŸ™‚

BOOM!! That is how you break a wall ;)

Weigh in day and the results are…

Drum Roll Please….

3.5 lbs loss!!! That’s 8.5 lbs in 2 weeks!!!

I am BEYOND happy. Not only that but I have Finally broken through my wall and the 300 lbs Goal I set myself MONTHS ago!!! New Goal is 250 lbs,

31.5 lbs down, just 147.5 lbs to go πŸ™‚ 9.5% of my body weight gone (For Good this time!) and I’ve lost 17% of the amount of weight I plan on losing… This is huge… it means just 13.5 lbs to go and I’m a 1/4 of the way to where I want to be!!!

Despite getting locked in at work tonight and missing my train and getting caught in the pouring rain… Today has been AWESOME

 

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!

Where am I now??

Where am I? Now that is an interesting question…
I have come to the realisation that I just kinda skim past the good things in my life and just have a massive ARGH!!! when having a bad day, So I’m being more Positive!

Here is a little update as to what is going on in my life right now,

I am still waiting on a start date for my new job, which sucks as I just want to get started. lol. but In less than 2 weeks I am off work for a week and celebrating my Birthday πŸ™‚ I’m going to be 27… wow feeling old!

Lots of fun to be had seeing all my favourite people. In Birmingham for a few days with the bestie, some old work friends in Leicester on Thursday and then Friday I get to see one very awesome person that is still incredibly supportive of my weight loss even though i’m miles away.

I’ve deleted my online dating profile cause well it wasn’t doing anything for me.

I’ve registered on my Open University Course of Education Studies to start in October (I am VERY excited!!)

My number one plan with my extra money from my new job is to save to buy a house (which includes moving away from South Wales)

I’m going to the Gym and on Long Walks and being more active than I have ever been. EVER!

I’m sticking to my food plan, I have room for snacking, if I need it and a list of snacks and point values (which maybe I should write on here at some point?) but most importantly I am not starving myself.

I am overall very happy right now, I aim to stay this way, take each day as it comes and just deal with things as and when they happen.

Hope you are all having a lovely week πŸ™‚ Β
