Sunday weigh-in : A Bump in the Road

This week has been a bit of a meh-week. I had to console a desperately unhappy teen when Zayn quit One Direction (and figured baking cookies and fridge cake would help put a smile on her face - well,you HAVE to taste the first one to check they're ok, don't you ?!). I've been flat out at work with school reports and after school meetings, so it's been a case of speedy eating rather than healthy eating. It's been raining hard so long walks and geocaching are off the menu. It's also that time of the month. So today the scales said 85.7kg, a 500g gain, but I can deal with that !

Positives of the week

- Last week I noticed my ring and my watch have been feeling looser, this week it's my coat and jeans, so even if the scales didn't move in the right direction, something must be happening !

- I'm freshly motivated to start finding time in my busy week to dust off my fitness DVDs and the Wii Fit again

Current targets 

Last week's target : Keep making good choices and listening to the SlimPod. Throw in one session of sport. C'mon, bring on the 84 point somethings ! (HALF DONE, HALF FAILED !)

This week's targets : Let's try again - Keep making good choices and listening to the SlimPod. Throw in one session of sport. C'mon, bring on the 84 point somethings !

Short-term targets 21kg to lose sounds a lot but breaking it down, aiming for 1kg a week, that's only about 5 months - plenty of time for heading off to Turkey in August !

first target, get my "weight to lose" badge down into the 40's (it's currently on 51lb) (done),
 second goal - get back to 85.9kg, my pre-xmas weight (done )
third goal : get my "kg lost" badge back into double figures 
fourth goal : get my "weight loss" badge higher than my "still to go" badge
fifth goal : get back into my (smallest) bright blue jeans comfortably
sixth goal : get back to 77kg - my lowest weight since my pregnancies

Longer-term targets :  Hit my target weight of 68kg. 

STILL TO GO : 17.6kg

  1. It sounds like you're doing fine, the scale is just showing a minor fluctuation! I'm annoyed with the rain as I planned to go on a long walk on my own this Saturday but its been so bad that I don't think the woods will be fit for weeks.

    Weeks like this happen, I imagine consoling a teenage One Direction fan this week would have been pretty traumatic so you deserved to test the baked goodies! Bless, I hope she's okay now, I remember the chaos when Take That split!

    1. Sounds like you've had the same weather as us :( I used Take That as an example actually and told her that the chances are, when she's my age, she can look forward to a 1D reunion !! lol

  2. Luckily my daughter couldn't care less about Zayn leaving. Keep going with the weightloss. Don't give up.

  3. Thanks for letting me link up chick!
    To be honest... even from your writing, you can tell you are much happier! Being in control of what you eat, when you eat it, as opposed to being restricted by the Dukan Diet. You keep on at it and those scales will fall down easily! Reading great things about the SlimPod at the moment! Sim x

    1. Thanks Sim, that's really interesting that you think I sound happier - you're probably right ! xx

  4. Sounds like you're doing amazing - perhaps your speedy eating is healthier than it used to be but you haven't realised because it's just become habit?

    Mother nature graced her presence on me too, makes you feel the opposite of losing weight!

    Fab news about clothes getting looser too! Think of the shopping to be done :) #weightlosswednesday

  5. Zayn leaving has brought back memories of Robbie leaving Take That and the Samaritans had to open a helpline. I do sympathise for teenagers but if the papers are true he's got a budding "zayn i want to be a normal" 22 year old - solo career!!

    Best of luck for the the coming losses. A holiday should be a good focus for you xx

    1. I remember how it all seems so earth-shatteringly important when you're a teen too ! lol
