Week 24 @ Target: planning pays off!

Planning really does pay off, I came in with a -2lbs off this week! While yes I did veer from the plan at times I was a lot more conscious this week of not falling off the bandwagon completely - and as I can't have sweet things, this helped with my willpower. Sort of.... But,… Continue reading Week 24 @ Target: planning pays off!

Week 17 @ Target: a bit of a blip…

So I came in with a gain this week, which I have to admit to being rather surprised about as I was pretty good, a few hiccups along the week maybe but overall not awful, but I didn't get overly complacent. I can really only attribute it to the fact that I had wine, and… Continue reading Week 17 @ Target: a bit of a blip…

Week 16 @ Target: smashed it, now maintain it

I had a really motivating weigh in this week after coming in with a -4lb loss! This means that I lost all 3.5lbs of my Christmas and New Year gains, and some extra, so I am really really pleased!

Week 11 @ Target: in with a loss…

So I lost 1.5lbs at this weigh in, it was a day later than usual (and I am writing this so many days later after the fact!) as I had to go ice-skating with Guides and couldn't get to the meeting and weigh in - and a weigh in is easier to rearrange! So I… Continue reading Week 11 @ Target: in with a loss…

At first I just thought that I had caught a stomach bug and… Continue reading A BIG UPDATE!!

Week 57: -2.5lbs!

While I still have a good way to go to recoup the gains I have made over the past couple of months I was very pleased to come in with a 2.5lb loss this evening. I was hoping for a loss but I just wasn't sure at all so it felt very positive. If I had… Continue reading Week 57: -2.5lbs!

Week 50: -0.5lbs

Finally, in so long, had a loss. Fair enough not an amazing one but it is still a loss. I was also impressed to come in with a loss after being on holiday. I think it helped that it was a fairly active holiday overall. We went to lots of places, mooched about, walked. So… Continue reading Week 50: -0.5lbs
