Weekly weigh in. Week 19

So I was away for a long weekend and it was very difficult to get specific food but I think I did well in the sense I ate salad's and plain sandwiches where possible.
The thing I fell down on was that I allowed myself treats!

I think having been SO good for so long and feeling that even when I was really good, I still hadn't the results I felt that deserved, I just about gave up on myself.

So it was with massive trepidation I approached those scales on the Monday.
The results??

Weight
11st 4lb
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.7%
Body water
41.2%

Maintained!!

Well it's funny how your prospective can do such a flip. I was actually relieved to see those numbers this week, lol
Everything exactly where it was before I went away and believe me I did NOT deserve it to be that way.
I deserved to put on.

So I must admit I found it hard to get back in the mind set the first few days but I think I'm back on track and refocused on achieving that 1lb loss and getting to my first stone loss at last!!!!

Even if it doesn't happen this week, I'm still sticking with it.

Onwards and upwards and definitely not OUTWARDS!!!

I'll be back on Monday with the next weigh in.

:)

Weekly weigh in. Week 18

So did I manage it???

Nope, once again I maintained!!!!
I was SO disappointed. I tried so hard this week but it just wasn't to be and maybe that's why I just let everything go when I went away at the weekend.
I'm sure if I had lost and got to my one stone loss, I would have been much more careful.

Anyhow ... stats.

Weight
10st 4lb
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.7%
Body water
41.2%

Maintained!!

I usually put up the previous week to compare but seeing as it was exactly the same, it seems pretty pointless to do that.

Oh well.....

Weekly weigh in. Week 17

So again I'm a bit late getting this post up but let's face it, there wasn't much to rush for.
As expected after a 2lb loss the week before, I maintained this week.
I wouldn't mind so much but it leaves me only one more weigh in before I go away for my long weekend and it's looking more and more unlikely that I'll reach that goal of a one stone loss by then.

That elusive one pound I need to lose for my goal just can't be relied on to shift itself.

Not feeling confident AT ALL!!

:(

So here are my stats from Monday's weigh in.


Weight
10st 4 lb
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.7%
Body water
41.2%

Maintained!!!


Hardly any change from the week before

Weight
10st 4 lb
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.8%
Body water
41.1%


Hmmm, well, we will just have to see what Monday brings I guess.



Half a syn cake

Yes, really. A whole cake for just half a syn!!

Well I had to give it a go didn't I.

Here it is in the oven. As you can see it puffs up nicely.



It goes flat after it's removed and looks like this.



Here it is, sandwiched together and ready to eat.



Ready to eat!

Weekly weigh in. Week 16

Monday morning's are a strange mix of anticipation and dread.

I can't wait to get weighed, in case it's good news but I also have this real reluctance to get on those scales because once you know and especially if it's bad news, then you know all you're going to be left with, is disappointment.

This morning I was in that usual zone and desperate to get on them scales and see those numbers fall, but dreading how awful I would feel if there was no change AGAIN.
So it was with all these mixed feelings that I approached the dreaded scales.
I closed my eyes and stepped on, looked down and I had missed the weight but then you see the BMI and body fat/ body water numbers but because I'd had my eyes closed I didn't know which was which, lol so then I had to wait for it all to come back round and show me again!! I think it shows all the numbers 3 times.

So, here it is:

Weight
10st 4lb
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.8%
Body water
41.1%

2lb lost!!!!!!

I can't tell you how happy and relived I was to see I had finally lost!!!!

I don't really understand how or why my body loses weight the way it does.
I mean, I stick to that diet/eating plan, I don't cheat, I keep well within my syns.
So why does it hold onto the weight/fat and maintain and then suddenly throw out a 2 lb loss??
I don't really understand it but looking back over my stats it seems to have a habit of doing this.

Ah well, right now, all I'm thinking of is I've lost that weight at last and just another 1lb loss to go to finally reach my goal of another 7lb off bringing me to my first stone loss at last!!!!

:) :) :) :)

Last weeks stats to compare:
Weight
10st 6lb
BMI
28.7
Body fat
40.5%
Body water
40.6%

I've got two more weigh in's I think, before I go off for my long weekend in Newcastle.
I had set myself a goal of losing one stone by that point. With the way my body mucks around I can't be confident I'm going to make that goal, but I tell you what, I'm going to have a blumming good try!!!

Have a great week everyone!!

:D

Weekly weigh in. Week 15



I've put off posting the results of my weigh in as I've had a real struggle with myself this week.
I've felt like just giving up and eating what I want without even having to think about things and why?? Because this week I again maintained!!

It's so hard to keep positive when you've tried so hard, limited your syns and pretty much done what you can but your body isn't playing the game.
Very hard to keep that focus still.

Anyhow week 15 stats, here we go....

Weight
10st 6lb
BMI
28.7
Body fat
40.5%
Body water
40.6%

Maintained!!!!!

Last weeks stats to compare:

Weight
10st 6lb
BMI

Body fat

Body water

As you can see, nothing there to make me feel better at all.
I've stuck to plan this week still, albeit rather grudgingly, so we'll have to see whether it's had the desired effect by Monday weigh in or not.

If it hasn't, I just don't know.
