Weekly weigh in. Week 14.

So here we go ....

Weight
10stone 6lb
Bmi
28.7
Body fat
40.4%
Body water
40.7%

Maintained!!!


I sort of knew there wasn't going to be a loss this week. Not after losing 2lb last week. I really did try hard though and limited my syns to around 40.
I know I just have to accept that I lose weight slowly these days but I just long to see those pounds melt away.

The thing that comforts me though, is that looking back at last weeks stats I can at least see that changes are happening.

So here are last weeks stats to compare:

Weight
10st 6lb
BMI
28.8
Body fat
40.7% (should be 26% - 36%)
Body water
40.4% (Need to be about 47%)

Do you see hoe the fat and water stats have just swapped round. How weird, lol.

Ah well, onwards with another week and hoping for a loss at the end of it!!

Weekly weigh in. Week 13

I struggled this week.
I think I was so disappointed, I almost threw the towel in a couple of times.

I started the week badly having a big lot of syns and feeling totally out of control but by midweek I was back in a good mind set and feeling determined once more. I had no syns to compensate and ended up only having 45 for the whole week.

We have a lot going on at the moment and it's leaving me less time to concentrate on my diet and putting me into situations where I don't have a lot of choice food wise and I think that's why I felt so out of control at the beginning of the week.

However, I did get back on track and it proves you can turn things around again because here is today's stats.

Weight
10st 6lb
BMI
28.8
Body fat
40.7% (apparently needs to be 26% - 36%)
Body water
40.4% (Need to be aiming for 47%)

2lb lost!!!

Wow!! Didn't expect that AT ALL!!! I was actually worrying about weighing myself today as I knew if it was another maintained I would be in real danger of losing my motivation.

Last week's stats to compare:

Weight
10st 8lb
BMI
29.2
Body fat
41.4%
Body water
39.9%

But I was looking and comparing from where I started ... such a difference already
:)

Weight
11st 3lb
BMI
30.8
Body fat
45.1%
Body water
37.1%

Only 3lb left to go to get to my 1 stone loss. :)
I know it's only 11 lb loss so far, I know I'm still pretty fat really, but even so, to me it's such an achievement. I feel so much better in myself.

So now I feel really boosted and am keen to try for a good week again.

Take care everyone.

:)

Weekly weigh in. Week 11

I was feeling fairly confident this week. I had been very good with my syns and was only at around 40 something.
I had been very good on my meals. I had everything to hope for ... and then I weighed myself.

Imagine stepping oh so confidently onto those scales and then seeing that you MAINTAINED!!!!!!!!!

I really don't know why, unless it's evening out from losing 2lb last week.

At anyrate, the stats did show a little change still, so that's something.

Stats:

Weight
10st 8lb
BMI
29.2
Body fat
41.3%
Body water
40.0%

So to save you looking back to compare, last week it was this:

Weight
10st 8lb
BMI
29.2
Body fat
41.5%
Body water
39.9%

So small changes, but at least it's something!!


Will this week be any better??

I'm a bit concerned because my youngest son has decided he wants to learn to cook from scratch, so we are eating more healthily and less convenience foods, which is fantastic!! The problem comes from me eating this food along with them all.

On Monday night we made homemade beefburgers with a yogurt dressing and salad with olive oil and viniagrette dressing.
It was really yummy!!

Beefburger is generally considered a fast food type of thing, but seeing as it was all made from scratch and I made the roll/bun it went into as well, it wasn't really an unhealthy option.

C sat and helped me work it all out last night and as I had saved my heb for the roll and I had an original/red day, that sorted out the meat. The only thing that really cost me any syns was the oil.

After I made a banana and passion fruit smoothie. I used milk from my allowance, so the only thing that cost syns there was the honey I added.

Last night, Tuesday, was a little more heavy on the syns but still, we think, within where I should be.

We made homemade chicken chow mein from scratch.


I used the original/red day to count for the chicken. I had to syn the olive oil and the noodles though, they added up a bit with the sauce too. All in all though, I think I'm ok syn wise and I have to say both meals were pretty yummylicious!!

I think we're just going to throw some ingredients together tonight, rather than follow a recipe and see what comes out. I had planned lasagne but now I'm thinking, 'let's just experiment' LOL


So anyhow, I'll try my best to syn concious. I do want to join in and enjoy his meals with him though as that's half the fun of cooking together.
Ah well, next weigh in will tell the tale, lol

Take care!!
