Ooh good going! I am in a plateau: current weight 13 stone 13, started at 15 st 6 and goal weight (eventually) is 12 stone. My word that's a 3 and a half stone loss to aim for....so I've managed 1 stone 7 off so far. Various things keep getting in the way of the exercise (backache/cold/earaches) but I will get back on the wagon again, if I do it ebough times I'll lose the weight!
After saying I was def keeping with the shred I've failed to do it every day and my eating has been crap too. All mainly due to f waking several times a night after sleeping through for a bit so just too knackered. Weight home up by 1lb so back on it this week and hope to shift a little more.
Oops ,fell off hread. Lost a pound last week but none this week, so 198 lb (14 st 2). Am bleming it on AF and in no way related to the Belgian Chocolate Biscuit Box I bought from Aldi and have been snarfing whenever DH is back late from work
Back ache has knackered any attempts at exercise too. Baaaad Aethel, must do better!
2lb off, this week so now 199lb (14 stone 3) which is 1 stone 3 off from my heaviest, and two stone to go to target. Hooray! It's been sp nuts with the househunting/cleaning I was expecting a level off. Really need more exercise, must restart the shred (yes, I know I've said that already...)
Good one aethelfleda on the loss - a loss is a loss.
I'm down 1.2lb (need to include the 0.2!) So good but not as good as I'd hoped mainly due to cheating slightly losing focus with my food. Looking back I had biscuits or shortbread or fudge every day. Hmm surprising I lost any really! Must do better with the food this week.
201 lb this week: so a one pound loss. Think the cleaning is acting in lieu of formal exercise!! Pleased as really thought I would go up this week.
Wow Hawthers that sounds motivated! Good luck with it...And v well done Kitty, it's amazing to think how much lard we are carrying about. One of my friends actually went to the supermarket and had a friend take a photo of her with the same amount of lard in the trolley that she'd lost (and as it was over 5 stone that was a LOT of lard...)
4lb off! I have now lost 18lb which is approx what DS weighs. How much of an incentive is that? To pick up your baby and think blimey, that's how much fat I was carrying.
Lots more to go, but am feeling invigorated.
Did a Zumba class for the first time yesterday. Not quite the spectacular failure I was expecting, but I'm not sure the teacher is all that good. That said, she let me bring DS and he was crawling around in the corner so not sure I can stop going IYSWIM.
Off to make some carefully balanced bolognese to form the base for many meals.....
Drastic (ish) action being taken. DH has taken custody of the scales, is helping me with my portion size and I've been doing the 30 day shred every day together with speed walking (because somehow we are always running late) DS1 to and from preschool up hill pushing ten tons of pushchair. This all must be doing something, right?
Big weigh in on Saturday and I'm hoping for some good progress....
I didn't measure myself right at the start, but in 3 weeks I have also lost 4cm off my waist, 1cm off my hips, 2cm off my bust, 1cm off my upper arms, 1 cm off my thighs and have dropped from a size 20 to a size 18.
Am now off to dig out my size 16 jeans to see if I can at least pull them on yet
Early weigh in for me as at m and d's before heading to a wedding sans kids tomorrow. Lost nearly 2lbs this week by portion control and not much wine. Good considering DS1's birthday cake has been consumed most days.
