3 Month Goal – December & Updates

Okay so it’s the first 3 month weigh in. We all know I wasn’t going to make it! I’ve been thinking about it, and I’ve decided to set new 3 month goals for 2015. It makes more sense to me to have them through 2015 rather than split over 2014 and 2015. More logical in my mind!

Start Weight: 220 pounds

By the end of 2015 I will weigh: 178 pounds

3 Month Goals

March 29th – 209.5 pounds

June 28th – 199 pounds

September 27th – 188.5 pounds

December 20th – 178 pounds

Overall, this is a loss of 42 pounds.

3.5 pounds a month – approximately 1 pound per week.

It’s an achievable goal! I can loose 1 pound a week minimum.

I’m looking forward to doing this, I don’t want to be fat anymore! I mean, I didn’t want to be fat in the first place, but I still ate myself right into it and have stayed there. This year was the first year I have actually lost weight, but I don’t feel proud of it because I should never have been this big in the first place.

2014 stats

Start of 2014 weight: 230 pounds

Highest weight: 236 pounds

Weight now, before Christmas: 220 pounds

01/14 – 12/14 difference: 10 pound loss

Highest Weight – Now difference: 16 pound loss

Overall, I have lost weight this year. For the first time since…ever probably!

Weigh in Wednesday

Good morning! Did you know there’s only 5 weeks until Christmas?? It’s coming around quickly!

Last Week: 223 pounds
Today: 220 pounds
21.12.14 Goal: 205 pounds – 15 pounds to go

I hit my weight goal from last week. This is a new record for me today, I am the lightest I’ve been in over a year. A whole year! In June I was at my heaviest weight of 236 pounds. Since then I have gradually lost 16 pounds (and yoyo’d up and down along the way). I feel like it isn’t real in a way. I’ve been putting weight on in leaps and trickles the past 6 years so I’m not sure I trust that the weight is coming off!

I had a bit if a disaster yesterday evening – my laptop decided it wasn’t going to turn on or work properly. This resulted in me needing to do a system recovery, however my last back up was in May. I have lost everything, all of the weights and measurements I meticulously kept a record of since the beginning of May are gone. Not to mention all of my other recent documents that now no longer exist. Livid.

Food
Last weeks goal: Eat within my calorie limit 5 / 7 days
I smashed this one out if the park. I did it for 6/7 days. Wooooo. That explains the weight loss… I think tracking this in this way is helping me in leaps and bounds-alongside tracking calories to burn in the exercise section below. I am still hungry quite often, but I am not impulse eating so much anymore.

Exercise
Last weeks goal: Burn 6000 calories
I did okay on this, better than the last couple of weeks in any case. I overate by 695 calories, but I burnt 1866 calories. This left me with having burned off 1171 / 6000 calories. I’m happy with that, it’s going in the right diction.

Sleep
Last weeks goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 out of 7 nights
Better than last week on this, but not good enough. I got enough sleep 3 out of 7 nights…

Goals For Next Week
Weight: 218 pounds Lets get under the 220 mark!
Food: Eat within calorie limit 6 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 4800 calories
Sleep: get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

Happy Wednesday!

Weigh in Wednesday

Morning morning!

Last week: 229 pounds
Today: 230 pounds
Next week: 228 pounds

Sooo annoying! Mon and tues I was staying steady at 229, then this morning I jump up a pound! Urg. Too much bread yesterday perhaps.

Food:
Had loads going on over the weekend and ended up going to 2 bbqs, and eating out fri/mon. Probably why I haven’t lost anything. Self control is vital this week if I want to see some loss for next week.

Exercise:
I finally got around to making an exercise schedule. It started on Monday but due to hovercraft driving I’ve been slightly incapacitated…I’m hoping that by tomorrow my aches will have eased enough to get some exercise in.

Coming up:
Info on the BFF September Challenge

Weigh in Wednesday

It’s here! The post you all wait for with bated breath. I’m joking!

Today I’m going to do a round up of my progress so far as well as my usual weigh in. It was pointed out to me recently that my posts make it seem as if I’m not making any progress…sooo I’m going to lay it all out as well as reestablish my goals.

Weigh in
Last week: 231 pounds (water weight! )
This week: 227 pounds
Next week: 226 pounds

Progress
Highest weight: 234 pounds – recorded just after Ben Nevis
Progress: – 7 pounds

This may not seem a lot for the amount of time, but it’s definitely an improvement on dancing around the same few pounds all the time.

Goals:
At the beginning of the year I set a new years resolution to lose 2 stone (28 pounds) by July. Obviously, that hasn’t happened. I’m now aiming to loose a minimum of 28 pounds by the end of the year. So far, I’ve lost 7 pounds of that, leaving 21 pounds to go. This is achievable!

End of year goal: 206 pounds
Summer 2015 goal: 178 pounds – a further 28 pounds

Ultimate Goal: 130 pounds
This may change when I get there, depending on what I feel healthiest at and whether I feel like I need to loose more.

This week’s updates
Food:
I’ve been pretty good this week. The only bad day was yesterday, when I was given a box of chocolates from my colleagues for passing my driving test. Oops. I regret nothing, and I shared! This week I need to keep up with the good foods, and throw some more fruit and veg into the mix.

Exercise:
After the success of Pretty Muddy at the weekend, I need to make sure I jump back into running this week-otherwise I’ll loose all momentum! I’ve also been considering taking part in a 6 week power lifting course at my gym. Not because I want to bulk up, but because lifting trims you down quicker than cardio alone. And who doesn’t want to be able to lift heavy things?

Life:
Positive. Feeling good. I passed my driving test yesterday which I think will up my mood for at least a week! I also managed to get a long sleep in at the weekend, though I’m still tired and behind on sleep at the moment. Work is busy, as always. I’m looking forward to the weekend, have a busy one planned!

Hope everyone has a good Wednesday!

After weigh day post

Morning all.

So I weighed in yesterday, at 230 pounds. I was curious and weighed myself again this morning, and I had magically gone down a pound to 229 pounds-which was the target I set myself last week. I’m not sure if it counts for this week or not, or if I have to try to keep at 229 pounds (or less) until weigh in next week for it to count. Technically, its the start of a new weigh in week today so maybe it has to be 229 next week?

Then again, its still a weight loss…

So HELL YEAH! UNDER 230 FINALLY!

🙂

Weigh in Wednesday (Thursday)

I’ve been monitoring my weight a lot more closely recently as I’ve been having some wacky weigh ins. If you remember, last week I had suddenly put on 6 pounds, but immediate dropped back down again over the weekend. This week, when I weighed in on Wednesday I had apparantly put it all back on again, and then lost it again this morning. It makes no sense! I’m going to go with the weigh in from today, as I think it is the more accurate of the two.

This week: 232 pounds
Currently: bloated and retaining water
Next week: 229 pounds would be very nice!

For those who didn’t see, I posted about the Race For Life last night, please check it out if you get a chance!

Food:
Biscuits have been more under control this week, which is always good. Though I desperately need to be eating more fruit and veg! Moooaaarrr!

Exercise:
I am going to keep up with the running (once I recover from this one!). My gym is doing a 5k at the end of the month, I would love to join up and see if I can beat my time for this one! I also have a gym plan to follow-compiled by Mr Scott-which I will be getting on board with next week.

Life:
Positive thinking works! I’m not so great at this, but I plan to keep it going. De-stressing during and after work is becoming really important at the moment. Luckily my coworkers and I are usually able to make each other laugh, which helps a lot!
