So here I am updating my blog for the first time in over 2 months (as it was pointed out to me… sorry 😦 )
So what’s been happening? I’ve been working long days and experiencing some issues that I believed were resulted in my hospital stay in September.
I’ve been going to WW meetings, actually being weighed by other people is scary, but I’m going, and still going, I had a few slip ups and I think that was stress, so in all I’ve lost 3lbs in the last 6 weeks, I know it isn’t much but it’s something.
I saw my neurologist on Wednesday who thinks I’m suffering migraines which is causing all the issues i’m having so, i’m being put on medication for that. I’m so relieved. I can finally put my mind at rest.
So… This is just a quick update to say I am still here and still working on things.
And to celebrate spring… “Bikini body here I come” hahaha
I lost 4Lbs!!!
not the 14 I was aiming for but I was ill for a couple days, got sent home from work and well dropping out of routine does make things worse. but I lost the 2.5 i put on and then lost a lil more.
Not too shabby 🙂
Total loss of 5Lbs so far… but i start meetings Friday 3rd Feb.
I’ve set a new goal, 10Lbs to lose in 2 weeks – before Sunday 5th Feb. those 10lbs will mean I have lost 10% of weight in 1 whole year.
Which isn’t too bad after the rubbish back and forth I had from July til now.
wish me luck… couple more weeks til a picture comparison… *gulp*
Okay so I weighed in on Sunday…
okay so it was a bad week BUT it’s only terrible if i let it get to me…
so I haven’t.
I’ve decided to leave my weeklies, concentrate on dailies (within 3 points below) and then if I really NEED my weeklies I shall have them in abundance…
for example if i have a craving… better if I can settle that than to deprive myself… or if the guys from work invite me out for a meal, I’m safe.
okay so the competition between my sister and I… I won the first round.
It’s every fortnight so last weeks weigh in set a benchmark for this week’s…
My sister LOST 7.5LBS!!! and I put on 2! so in order to win the weigh this week, I have to lose 10lbs… PLUS 1lbs more than my sister does *gulp*
14lbs is a brave target – i’m aiming high but not going to dwell if i don’t make it.
So today was the first weigh in day since Christmas…
On Christmas Day I weighed 311 Lbs
Today I weigh 307.5Lbs
I have lost 3.5lbs!!!!!!
Super happy with this as a result! 3.5lbs puts me on target for my Beginning of March Challenge…
At the start of March I am going to see my friend (the one I have mentioned on here like all the time, my personal weight loss motivator… :p ) we are going to have a day of Brownies and movies… cause why not? 🙂 but If I do not lose more than 20lbs (so 21lbs or more) which is a goal of 290 by then… I’m not allowed Brownies 😦 lol.
BUT my friend has set me another challenge to lose 5 more lbs… making a goal of:
I don’t know what the small incentive to brownies is going to be yet… but I do love a challenge!!!
And the weight loss challenge with my sister… I won the first weigh in 🙂
This week is a success…
Let’s keep this up!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Here we are a new year, ready for a new start.
2016 ended in a much better way than any previous year I had been on a diet… so I ended 2016 21lbs lighter than I started it. This for me is a win as I usually start the next year having put on weight.
Now the end of the year didn’t go as planned but now here I am ready to absolutely kick ass!!
I’m back at the gym, I’m smashing my 11,000 steps a day goal.
I have realised my days off I just want to sit around doing nothing, this will have to change… so lots of getting off my bum on days off…
2017 is what I can make of it…
Here I am… the week before Christmas and I’m back! New job has started. I’m on my 5th week and currently LOVING it…
the downside? The food… Biscuits, Muffins, Cakes… so much yumminess and too weak to resist!!! Okay so let’s bring everyone back up to speed here…
I have but on weight. I’ve gone back up to 307.5lbs as of last Sunday. I have entered a weight loss competition with my Sister… for the time being we are going over the next 8 weeks and the winner will get £10 from each person (£20 to go in a savings tin) then after that we are going to WW Meetings… (actual meetings, with people and everything… *Gulp*) then the winner of each fortnight gets £10 from each, again to go into a pot… after 6 months we’re opening tins and going shopping! (hopefully for new clothes cause well skinny(er)
That’s about all I can add for today… I will update on or around Next Sunday with the next weigh in installment…
This time I’m back for good…
(I’m sure my friend will keep me in check to update from now on lol)
Slowly but surely I am getting there, I have lost 5lbs since coming out of hospital, it isn’t a lot but it’s coming down and that’s the main thing.
Being out of work is causing me far more stress and has made me far more depressed that I thought it would. I’ve cancelled my gym membership as I can no longer afford it but I have been trying to get out and run and as it gets colder the want and need to stay inside in the warm is ever increasing. but I keep trying, and the craving for chocolate has started to dwindle, Diet back on track, Exercise back on track and I’ll get there.
I’m not giving up. I refuse to give up. I’ve come too far to give up now.
wouldn’t say no to having someone nag me right now…
BUT I am getting there… Slowly….
