Sunday weigh-in : Ringing the changes !




Positive points of the week :

- For the first time in a few years, I've been able to wear my wedding ring. After having Sophie, I had to have it enlarged, then after Juliette and Pierre, I couldn't even get it past my knuckle. A couple of months ago I tried again - still no way it was going to fit - and, after having a sort-out in my jewellery box with Sophie this week, I came across it, showed it her and was amazed to see it fits ! It's just a symbol but it's nice to know I'm back to wearing the ring we exchanged our vows with, rather than a replacement !

- I've just been to the market and picked up a new fruit & veg box. It's a great way of packing loads more fruit and veg into our weekly meals and means I have tempting fruit to nibble on rather than unhealthier snacks. I've done so much baking with the kids this week - eeek - so it's good to balance things out !

- Still menu planning so I have ideas of low-calorie meals to make and don't have to fall back on unhealthier ready-meals.

- I got Sophie to take a full-length photo of me for a review of a pair of trousers and was actually really pleased with what I saw. I still have a belly but it's definitely shrunk, there's no doubt about it ! (I'm having computer problem so I'm on Madhouse Daddy Mike's laptop but will add them when I can !)

This week's target 

Last week I said I wanted to get some more exercise into my week now that I'm on holiday and increase my loss to at least 1/2kg, because the last few weeks have been teeny tiny baby steps. Well, I haven't done any exercise at all, apart from running about with the kids, but I did lose 1/2kg so that's good enough for me ! Ooh, I've just noticed my ticker has moved over to 14kg which is great for keeping motivated too. I love the way my weight loss badge is also much higher than the left to lose badge - yay !

Target for next week, into the 77 point somethings :)

START WEIGHT : 91.9kg
TARGET WEIGHT : 66kg
WEIGHT LAST WEEK  : 78.8kg
WEIGHT TODAY : 78.3g
WEIGHT LOST SO FAR :  13.6kg
STILL TO GO : 12.2kg
CHANGE THIS WEEK : -0.5kg
