Weigh In – Slimming World Week 12

Hello, it’s been a while. As you can probably guess I’ve been off plan for a while. Hence the no posting. I have still been going to slimming world every week, but I’ve not had any motivation in keeping to the plan. I also had a holiday, work stress, and the stress of moving house! Busy busy.

I am pretty much back up to the weight I started slimming world at, but I was heavier and actually had a loss this week so…I’m getting back on track.

Current weight: 16st 11lb (235 pounds)

6 week goal: 15st 10lb (220 pounds)

Next weeks goal: 16st 7lb (231 pounds)

Meal planning is essential going forwards, I always do better when I know what I’m going to be eating…


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

I missed weigh in last week, I was in Birmingham for work and had no scales. Oops. I know the past couple of weeks haven’t been great food-wise, so I’m expecting the worst!

2 weeks ago: 225 pounds
Today: 228 pounds
To Lose for Goal 1: 18.5 pounds

Gained 3 pounds in 2 weeks.
I have 6 and a half weeks until my first weight goal, and I’m quite far off at the moment. I need to lose 3 pounds a week to reach it…seems a little daunting! Especially as it’s my birthday tomorrow and I will be eating cake and whatnot…

Urg. I’m going to have to exercise a mass amount of restraint this week. And for the whole 6 weeks! Waaaa

Okay. Well, getting down to business as it were, I have lots of walks planned and not much money to buy food. Therefore, I have no snacky foods at home and some exercise planned. It is possible to do this! I can do this.

I’ll be tracking my food religiously and logging exercise. I’ll be making better food choices, and avoiding the biscuits at work at all costs. No biscuits for 6 weeks.

In fact, I’m setting that as a challenge!

6 week challenge
No biscuits for 6 weeks.

Boom. Done. I’ll keep you posted…

For next week:
Weight: 225 pounds
Food: avoid biscuits and eat 1500 calories a day
Exercise: Go on a long walk or hike at the weekend

weigh in day!

Put back on the 2 pounds I lost, but that’s not a big deal, or a big surprise  It’s my birthday tomorrow so have been a little naughty over the weekend with my food!

once I’m back to normal eating and exercising I’m sure it will drop off again!

Injury update: swelling has started to go down on my ankle, and its easier to put weight on it, still sore though! I’m hoping for a quick recovery, although with the snow that’s currently falling I’m concerned I’ll slip and hurt it more!

Where did my optimism go?

I’m stuck. I have been for what…a year now? hovering around the same weight, any loss always gets put back on. Every time. usually with more on top of the original weight.

I keep telling myself to stop fanny assing around and actually do something about it, and it starts ok, then goes to crap again. and again. and again.

seem to be stuck on a plateau, one that balances between redemption and doomed forever. (a little over dramatic maybe)

I guess I just feel like I’ve been stuck at a wall for a long time, and nothing has changed.

I’m hoping they will soon.
