Sunday weigh-in : Well, that was Easter !

Last week, I was delighted to make it into the 82 point somethings just by the skin of my teeth. Then it was Easter. I haven't been pigging out on chocolate (probably thanks to the SlimPod) but I have been eating a bit more than I usually would, so I was expecting a slight gain and hoping it wouldn't be too big. Today's verdict is a 700g gain - that's only a pound so it could be worse and I'll go all out to lose it next week.

On the exercise front, I haven't been on the Wii fit at all this week but we have a new hobby - geocaching - so we've been walking miles most days, looking for hidden caches. It's great fun as well as good exercise and I love finding something the whole family can enjoy together.

How about you? Hope you managed to survive Easter without scoffing your entire body weight in chocolate ! Are you brave enough to get on the scales today?!

Positives of the week

- I've only been eating the mini eggs and even then, only one or two at a time - could be worse !

- You can't lose every time so looking overall, I'm still on a downward curve

- The sun is back - not all the time but enough for us to get out and about a lot more.

Current targets 

Last week's target : Stay in the 82's. Avoid the Easter chocolates ! Fit in exercise, whether that be long walks or the Wii fit. (well, I'll call that a half done !)

This week's targets : Get back in the 82's and get loads of exercise, whether that be geocaching or Wii Fit.

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 : 15.6kg

  1. I think you've had a great week and honestly 700g is nothing, it's a fluctuation not a gain. Plus if you are more active you could be gaining some muscle. It really is nothing though.

    Geocaching sounds rather fun, I do love a good hike and fortunately I'm surrounded by some beautiful hilly countryside, sadly I don't drive as there are even more beautiful walks close by that I couldn't make it too easily.
