Week 23 @ Target: and we yoyo again!


So I started off the month well and I go in on the second week feeling pretty alright – not perfect admittedly, but alright and have put on 2.5lbs!!!! So that made me pretty annoyed if I am honest, however it did spur me to get on it and organise my week.

I wrote out a plan at group last week and this made me feel more in control, while I am not saying that I have 100% kept to this week’s plan, my derivations haven’t been far off and the other eating options haven’t been all synful, so I am feeling better overall. But at this rate who really knows?

Rather than think up a brand new monthly motivation I’ve decided to carry on last months motivation again, as I really should have done it and I don’t have any excuses not to lose in to the next stone bracket this month!

So wish me luck for the month and this week’s weigh in!

Week 2 @ Target – had to miss group!

I couldn’t make it to Slimming World this week due to having to work an evening event, which even though it was the only thing I did all day, with my current working hours situation, made me so tired – it’s still so odd being so tired all the time. I’m not used to it.

But I do not think I would have done very well. I am trying to make better choices and overall be less synful… but it is hard. I think I need to get better at planning and prepping but it gets hard finding time in the day – which is weird at the moment as I am really not doing much! I get back from work and I am so sleepy.

Still determined though and will keep going. Hopefully will get more exercise in too soon.

Week 41: -(yes -!) 4.5lbs!

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!! I think beyond thrilled would be my reaction to last nights weigh in, as I effectively lost my gains of last week and another 2lbs on top. Now that is a result!

I clearly do a lot better when I exercise regularly, which I did always know but it’s nice to have it confirmed as I got back up to three periods of exercise this week – aiming for four next week!

I also on the food front just stopped letting myself make silly food choices. I wasn’t an angel, but I was better, as I had to eat out quite a few times over the weekend particularly. But I made as sensible as possible options. I regularly checked the syn value of things, which definitely kept me on track from over indulging, and was just more conscious overall. So I am pleased.

I really now need to keep the momentum going over the next week, keep that exercise on track and watching my syns and hopefully I’ll be closer to that 2st! Wish me luck.


P.S Also cant believe I am on Week 41! Nearly a year soon.
