Sunday weigh-in : I've recharged my batteries

After a couple of weeks of no weigh-ins, I've recharged my batteries, both literally and figuratively. While I didn't have a major blowout and stuff my face on cakes and biscuits, I have noticed that I'm more likely to snaffle a chocolate on the way past the box if I'm not thinking in the back of my mind that I wonder what the scales will say at the end of the week. I have bought some new batteries now though so I'm back to weighing in.

These past two weeks have been really busy - first I had all the school reports to fill in, then I had after school meetings. Next week will be the same - I'll be home late on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There has literally been no time for the Wii-fit at all so I wasn't expecting a great weigh-in today. In the end, it's not too bad - 84.4kg, a 300g gain over three weeks, I can deal with that !

Positives of the week

-  A 100g gain a week when I'm not really worrying about what I eat and doing no exercise sounds pretty good to me, especially as I've had lots of chocolates to review for Mother's day and we've been making loads of cakes !

- I've been missing the Wii-fit so I'll be enthusiastic about starting up again after this final manic week

Current targets 

Last week's target : Breathe ! Life gets in the way sometimes and this week and next will be manic at work so I'll not be overly worrying about food or exercise. Listen to the Slimpod and replace the batteries in the scales !
(Done !)

This week's targets : Another crazy week at work coming up so just do my best for food choices and listen to the SlimPod a few times. Get my weight lost badge back to double figures (because - boo ! - that 300g gain was enough to bring it back down to 9kg lost !)

Short-term targets : I have a new pair of bright blue target jeans to fit into ! (Done but I want them to be a bit looser.)

Longer-term targets : Get back to the 70-somethings. Get my badges back to "weight lost" being more than "left to lose"

STILL TO GO : 16.4kg

  1. It's good not to stress about things, especially when life is too hectic. You'll get there and meet the targets you set for yourself. I need to buy a new set of scales, mine refuse to tell the truth and show me some random numbers of 40+kg which are soooooo far from reality

  2. 300g really is nothing, I wouldn't even count that. I think just concentrate on the wii fit and the rest will follow. Whenever I feel stressed I turn to yoga, it really helps.

  3. 300g is hardly anything for one week, let alone three so well done. Love reading about your positive approach to weigh loss :-) #wobbleswednesday

  4. That's a really great result for three weeks of not weighing well done!


  5. Well done! I'd say that's a pretty good result x

  6. Sounds like a busy week, tough time to think of yourself. To gain such a minimal amount deserves a big pat on the back xx

  7. Well done on the minimal gain, I hope life is easing up a bit now :)
