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 39: -1lbs – yay!

It may not be much, in fact it may be miniscule in the grand scheme of things but having a loss this week felt so good! It was a really good self-starter to get going and get on with everything. It was fantastic! Now I just need to stay on track, get back in control and concentrate! Perhaps the January funk is finally lifting. Here’s to positive thinking!

I actually went to a different group as well this week, as a friend who has just started and I had a birthday meal straight after and hers was closer. It felt really nice to get to a group again, and listen, share etc. I can’t tell as well if I liked the group more? Perhaps it was also just nicer going with a friend. I think that competitive element (I know dirty words!) would spur me on a bit at the moment. But it was a refreshing change.

Week 26: Maintained

Well I maintained this week which I am actually really pleased about.

I wasn’t great and I wasn’t awful either. It was rather a mediocre week and I think I am potentially ‘coming on’ but the body as usual can’t decide. I also had  a menu tasting for work which meant eating and trying lots of nice food. It wasn’t an obligation I could really get out from but I knew it was coming so I knew it would affect my weigh in.

So not ecstatic about this week but then again I am just thankful that it is not a gain. Hopefully next week will be better.
