Sunday Weigh-in : Celebrating the positives



The last couple of weeks have been crazily busy and one of the first things that always takes a knock is the healthy eating plan. Madhouse Daddy Mike generally steps in to cook up something to eat in the evening which invariably means a frozen ready meal or pizza, so I'm not expecting great news when I jump on the scales in a minute.

But I have been noticing lots of things lately that make me smile and realise how far I've come.

- I've given up wearing shapeless leggings and tracksuit bottoms and started wearing jeans all the time, because they're really comfortable now and look more flattering.

- I happened to glance at myself in the full-length mirror when I was getting dressed and actually liked what I saw.

- I've discovered that shopping is fun when you look round the shop to find what you like, not what will fit.

- I'm loving the fashion blogger challenges that come through now, rather then panicking and thinking "what if they don't have anything in my size ?"

- I looked at my twitter and facebook avatars and thought I should update the photos because I don't look like that any more !

- When my clothes become too big now, they go straight to the charity shop rather than to one side, just in case I put weight back on.

All of that is way more important than the figures. But, here's goes. Time to find out if the scales will be my friend this week ! Ooh better than I expected actually - a 100g loss when I was expecting a gain ! :)

START WEIGHT : 91.4kg
TARGET WEIGHT : 66kg
WEIGHT LAST WEEK  : 81kg
WEIGHT TODAY : 80.9kg
WEIGHT LOST SO FAR :  10.5kg
STILL TO GO : 14.9kg
CHANGE THIS WEEK : -0.1kg

  4. Well done. You sound as if you are making steady progress which is the best way to make it a ong term chnage. A good idea getting rid of the bigger size clothes - I tend to keep mine in a 'fat pile' which is maybe where I keep going wrong.

    1. Maybe you should take measurements ? Sometimes you lose inches even when the scales don't budge. (PS If you click through on the SlimPod label at the very bottom of the post, that will take you to the list of weigh-in posts - this was last week's ! :) )
