Well, I feel like I'm on swings and roundabouts at the moment because I seem to be constantlly bouncing around the same weight, but this week I can announce a loss, albeit a small one. I lost 400g, which is almost a pound, so I'm back to 80.9kg. Back into the 80's, which is a big motivational boost, but I still can't wait to get down to something starting with a 7. Surely it can't be that far away now ?!
Ooh I've just realised I've done that SlimPod thing again - I keep coming out with statements that I suddenly realise are things I hear on the SlimPod . Last week was "anything more than nothing is something" and this time it's "it's not a case of whether you'll get there, just how long it will take, because you WILL get there" ! Maybe that explains why I'm still feeling upbeat - or maybe that's because the end of term is looming and I got myself a new haircut yesterday.
I also won myself a £25 Debenhams voucher by taking part in the Weight Watchers twitter party so I'll be enjoying buying myself something new to wear too - I wonder what size I'll need !
This week's positives :
1. The scales are my friend this week - and I've moved down into the next kg :)
2. I didn't bother with ProPoint tracking this week - you could even say I took a week off dieting altogether because I just ate whatever was thrown at me. In some ways, it was a catastrophic week foodwise, between the chips and the total lack of fruit and vegetables for a couple of days at the school canteen, plus Madhouse Daddy Mike's birthday cake and some sweets kindly given to me by the kids that I "had to" eat. (No, really, even when I'm dieting, I can't refuse sweets or cakes given to me or made by the kids because it seems mean. They just have to get worked into the food plan !) The fact that I could do all that and still lose weight shows that I'm on track with the portion sizes and compensating unhealthy treats with low-cal meals. :)
3. I found another tight stretchy top that I couldn't fit into before (well, I could - I just couldn't breathe or lift my arms !) and now it fits like a glove :)
Target for next week : Same as the last couple of weeks - to get down to something starting with a 7 ! But anything lower than this week's would be great too.
Fingers crossed for 7hippopotamus this week - anyone else want to join in on the weight loss buddies link up on her blog ?
