Slimming World – Week 23

I have not been successful this week. Lack of planning, too many syns, too much of everything.

Last Week: 17st 2.5lb (240.5 pounds)
This Week: 17st 6lb (244 pounds)

Sooo this sucks. I’ve been giving myself a kick up the butt, and this week I’ve done some meal planning, I’ve prepped lunch for a couple of days, and I’m making more of an effort to stick to my syns. I need to make a loss this week, no matter what!

Week 24 Goal: 17st 2lb (240 pounds)

Hoping I’ll crack this and get on track with my food. I have also signed up to some classes at my gym to increase how active I am – Pilates and Barre Fusion here I come!

Slimming World – Week 22

I did a quick drop-in to my slimming world group this week, I was busy on Saturday so I couldn’t stay to group unfortunately. I wasn’t particularly good last week, and I had 4 very bad food days, and the rest weren’t much better! unsurprisingly, I put on this week.

Last week: 17st 0.5lb (238.5 pounds)
This week: 17st 2.5lb (240.5 pounds)
Week 23 goal: 16st 13.5lb (237.5 pounds)

Next week I want to be down by 3 pounds, to get back on track for my goal of losing a stone by Christmas…thus for this week, I’ve been so much better with my food. There was some cake yesterday, but there’s the rest of the week for me to make up for that! I’ve been keeping track of my food in my little food planner, which is massively helpful!

I’m feeling positive, hoping I’m coming out of my food slump and getting back on track!!!

fingers crossed…

Weigh In – Slimming World Week 5

This was a bad week. I didn’t follow the plan, and it definitely shows!

Last Weeks Weigh In: 15st 12lb (222 pounds)
Week 5 Weigh in: 16st 2.5lb (226.5 pounds)
Weight Loss To Date: 9.5 pounds

Definitely let it go this week, and it shows with a 4.5 pound gain! So crap. I can only blame myself…I knew I wasn’t eating well.

I am back on the proverbial wagon this week, it’s going well so far…I’m really eager to get the weigh I put back on off again, so I’m aiming for a high loss this week.

To Lose for Club 10: 15 pounds
To Lose for Ultimate Goal: 93.5 pounds

Goal for Next Week: 5 pounds

Weigh in Wednesday

Morning, morning, morning!

Here goes:

Last week: 227.2 pounds
Today: 227.8 pounds
To lose for goal 1: 18.3 pounds

A gain of 0.6 pound. That’s really annoying! I’m really bloated and feeling heavy this morning, so I might re-weigh tomorrow to see if that is what affected my weight rather than actual weight gain. Or maybe I just put on weight, who knows.

*EDIT* I re-weighed myself Thursday morning and came in at 226.6 – in actuality I lost 0.6 pounds from last week! Happy days.

Food-wise I have not been as good as last week, but I’ve still been on the good side of things. On three days I ate really well and within my limits, two days I overate, and two days I was pushing the boundary of what I can have, which is where the extra weight is probably coming from. And all the wine I drank last night at bookclub…

Have a good week!

Goals for Next Week
Weight: 224 Pounds
Exercise: Walk 8km

Weigh in Wednesday

Happy Wednesday… The last Wednesday of January!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like this month has flown by. It’s been crazy, a world of busyness and tonsillitis. I haven’t been very active atall this week, and I think the scales will reflect that. However, I am moving out this weekend, so I think running regularly will be a good way to explore the local area I’m moving to.

Last Week: 223.5 pounds
Today: 225 pounds
To Lose for Goal 1: 15.5 pounds

Told you. 1.5 pound gain – that is also down to bad food choices this week. Not the end of the world, it will come off again for next week!

Month Summary
Weight at beginning: 227 pounds
Weight at end: 225 pounds
Difference: -2 pounds
Year to date: -2 pounds

Goals
Next month: lose 7 pounds
Next week: lose 2 pounds
Food: Eat within 1500 calories 5 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 1000 extra calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

Weigh in (not) Wednesday

Morning all.

I know I’m a day late on this, but I wasnt at home yesterday morning and subsequently had no access to my scales. I did, however, weigh myself this morning. Lets just say I had a bad week and leave it at that shall we? I’m horrendously bloated and overfull at the moment so I need to deflate before I can get an accurate reading on my weight.

So, over to my progress reports!

Food
Last weeks goal: Eat within my calorie limit 6 / 7 days
I managed: 3 / 7 days
Not great, and clearly that’s had an effect on my weight. I ate out a couple of times this week and made excuses for it. Not much more to say on this really!

Exercise
Last weeks goal: Burn 6000 calories
I managed: to over eat at bring it up to 6950 calories, but also burned 720. 720 / 6950 calories overall.
Again, this is not great and is down to overeating again.

Sleep
Last weeks goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 out of 7 nights
I managed: 3 / 7 nights
I need to get into a habit of getting to bed that little bit earlier. I have such limited time in the evenings that everything gets pushed back and I end up going to bed late.

Goals For Next Week
Weight: 220 pounds
Food: Eat within calorie limit 5 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 6000 calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

Weigh in Wednesday

It’s that time of the week again! October is flying by isn’t it?!

Last week: 223 pounds
Today: 225 pounds
Gain of 2 pounds – back over the 16 stone mark again.

Well, I feel like I want to say it was bound to happen, but that sounds really defeatist. I was ill before last weeks weigh in, and now that I’m feeling a bit better I’ve eaten more. Simple. I need to get back on top of how much, and what, I’m eating to get this under control.

Food
I had a load of food on Saturday (texmex night at a friends house was both lethal and delicious) sunday I was really good, Monday I was really good, then yesterday I wasn’t. I dont know why. Just was a slightly naughty day – though I am proud of myself for not getting McDonalds when I was waiting for my delayed train while super hungry. So it could have been worse had I not shown some restraint.

Exercise
I went to the gym on Sunday, I did a combo of cardio and strength resistance. It was a short session because I only had an hour on my parking, so I made the 40 mins in the gym worth it. In my last post I wrote about joining a running group – this has made me feel more motivated to keep going and run with them. I want to stick with this! Next run is tomorrow…

Sleep
I need more! Am going to attempt an early night tonight, hopefully it will happen…

Goals for next week
Weight: 223 pounds
Food: get it back under control, and aim for majority of days to be within calorie amts
Exercise: Attend Thursday Medway Runners session, gym at the weekend, and Monday MR session
Sleep: get more!

Happy Wednesday!
