Welcome on board, honey!

Super happy.
My husband decided to join me on this at the start of the week. He's got quite a few stones to lose so from a health perspective I'm really pleased he's facing up to it now and doing something about it.

He's usually home on a Sunday so we're going to weigh in together on Sundays now.
He lost 5 pounds this week. He managed this without really making too much effort. Just not overdoing the portions.

For me, I managed to lose the 2 pounds I gained last week which I didn't officially record. So I'm at the weight I was 2 weeks ago. I'm glad those 2 pounds are gone but I wanna give myself a kick up the butt a bit now. I'm glad I've got Hubster on board now for extra motivation.

Embracing 'healthy'

So, after a terrible week last week, it's a new motivated me again this week.

I will confess I did have sneaky look on the scales in the end yesterday and I had put on 2 pounds. Grr.

So again, it's a case of getting that 2 pound gain off and fingers crossed any extra would be great. I really am hoping to lose more than just the 2 pound gain- I don't want to be messing around losing/gaining the same few pounds.

I'm still ill. Hardly slept last night due to one of those irritating coughs, where every time you breathe it triggers a tickly cough.
I'm making myself include at least 2 pieces of fruit in my diet every day. I'm really, really bad at eating fruit and I don't find it particularly enjoyable. I'm hoping the more I eat it the more I will grow to like it. I'm also trying to drink more water- another thing I'm terrible at!
The weather here is so beautiful and sunny (albeit still quite cold!) at the moment so I think that helps the motivation and wanting to eat better.

This has basically been me all week. Seriously, all week.
Don't know what kicked that off considering I had a good weigh in last week but I haven't been able to snap out of it this week at all.

*Disclaimer: I have been unwell and had period this week which shouldn't be an excuse but I know that's really not helped.

I can NOT bring myself to weigh in tomorrow. I know I probably should but I'm not. I will start afresh tomorrow and keep remembering the finish line!

Weigh In

That's another 2 pounds off!

So since the New Year:

  • Total loss is 9 pounds.
  •  I've dropped my BMI level by 2 points (?) Do you call them points? lol, from 29 to 27.
  • I'm no longer a binge eating chocoholic.

Husband- the feeder?

At the beginning of the week my darling husband bought me a packet of biscuits. Yes, BISCUITS! Which would be lovely if I wasn't trying to lose weight!
Damn temptation got the better of me and I have eaten them this week. But I've eaten the packet over the course of 5 days (rather than my old style of 5 minutes!) and shared some with the kids.

Other than that I've been pretty good so I'm still hoping for a loss on Monday. I made it clear to my Husband- ''Do not feed the animals!'' haha

I've been checking this online BMI calculator and kept putting different weights in to see what my BMI will be at different stages. I found that quite motivating, funnily enough. Made it seem real, like I could actually get there if I stick at it.

Weigh In

Woo! I lost that 2 pound gain and a further pound so 3 pounds lost this week!

This means I have reached my first goal- getting backing in the 10s stone bracket (140-153 pounds)

I went on a Primark spree (only the best. haha) I have nail varnish, a new bag and many, many new earrings including some little skull shaped ones which I love.

When I went on my recent disastrous shopping trip I saw lots of clothes with the skull design on which I wanted to buy but felt too fat and frumpy to wear. So that might be an incentive to lose some more of my weight!

Back in the zone!

Feeling really happy at the moment.
I feel in control again.
I'm sticking to my 1200 cal per day.

I'm so hoping to get those 2 pounds off that I put on last week, and ideally I would like to get a further pound off so I can reach my my first goal.

If I manage a 3 pound loss I will be back in the 10 stone bracket again (153 pounds) and I shall reward myself with new earrings. Not that exciting but I have like 1 pair of earrings at the moment. They always seem to go missing! So it will be nice to have some new ones. I was thinking of buying a really nice pair but I think maybe if I buy cheap ones I can get lots of them! Cheap earrings used to aggravate my ears but the last couple of pairs I've bought seem okay.

Ahh, losing weight and looking like Pat Butcher/Evans. What more could a girl want...?
