Not the week I wanted but a good result…

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*

I’m getting there Slowly…

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….

It’s Goal Time…

Time to set some goals, I mean it’s not like I have anything better to do while I’m stuck in this hospital Ward for the next 24ish hours….

I have 9 weeks before I start my new job, that’s 9 weeks I can focus on my food and exercise…

I’m going to split it into 3’s (3 goals of 3 weeks) but then an ultimate goal, a minimum weight loss for the 9 week period (which will be based on the 295lbs I weighed at home a couple weeks ago).

Hopefully things will be a little better as my dad has finally had a telling off from the diabetic nurse for his diet and ALL the Ice Cream he eats… after years of nagging him finally he is listening which means more of what I eat in the house, easier to make the same food for 2 than 2 different meals so It’s a great time to look forward.

I have purchased a new Diary from Fox and Moon, The WeightWatchers friendly diaries have had a little facelift. but it’s excellent, a Fresh start and a Fresh Diary to work with. That’s waiting for me for when I get home.

So First Goal…

20th November
Lose 28lbs (2 stone)

3 week Goal…

9th October
Lose 10lbs

It’s time to get out of here and work my arse off!

THERE IS NO GIVING UP THIS TIME!!!

What the Hell Happened?!?

So It was the 15th July the last time I was here. I said it would be 11 days to my next update After I got back from the homeland, Well It looks like I’m a big fat liar as here I am 65 days later.

Let’s cut to the chase, my week off was AWFUL, completely terrible, It’s a very long complicated story between my best friend and her now ex and her new bf… long story short, at the time of my birthday they had been split a matter of weeks, she was already seeing someone new and her and her ex were still living under the same roof… In order for me to get on with new bf my best friend had him there THE WHOLE time, I got like zero time to spend with her. Her new bf is a massive Douche, so being around him all the time stressed me out, out came the chocolate, crisps, cake and god knows whatever else. just another thing I cannot seem to switch off. But the highlight of the week was going out for dinner with an awesome friend. He even treated me for my birthday which was sweet. We went to a very nice pizza place, it was a Subway for Pizza haha. it was very nice and it was really nice to see him again, just a shame it wasn’t for long. That night I met up with some friends, went to a club and drank stupid amounts. Went out for a posh lunch the next day and by the time I got home I was scared to step on scales, I was scared to do anything and that included coming on here. I felt like I had failed myself AGAIN!!

What does any sane person do when they feel like a failure? yes, they hide. so that is what I did. Up until a couple weeks ago….

I decided I had had enough of hiding and avoiding what I was doing to myself, I stepped on the scales, I had put on 10lbs, that put me up to 295lbs. I wanted to cry and hide but then I had to remind myself, It could have been far far worse, I could be back to the 329lbs where I had started but I wasn’t. it was 10lbs and that is easy to control. I picked up my running shoes and headed down the beach, 3 times a week and got my lap down from 55min to 45min. I’m proud of that. the food side of things still need some work but I haven’t weighed myself since…

I am currently facing a massive hiccup which my help me food wise in the long run but I ended up being taken into hospital on the 5th September, Apparently I had a seizure, I say apparently because Mentally I wasn’t there… I woke up on the floor of a cafe then in an Ambulance and then again at the hospital. I lost my ability to form words which has been pretty scary at times but I’m getting there, speech is almost back to normal and I get to go home on Tuesday after 2 weeks. This set back has caused an issue for work, I was due to start at my new job on the 12th September but they have deferred it til November as I was ill. It was nice that they deferred but I am now income-less for 2 months… no gym! but on the upside I can now focus on myself, get my health back on track without having to worry about fitting it all around work for the time being.

So I think that pretty much covers it…

No more Hiding!!!

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 🙂

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

🙂

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 🙂 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
