Almost sabotaged!!

So you go shopping to buy all the good things, the fruit, the veg, the things that will help and be good for you but then you stumble upon this!!!



M&M's chocolate cake.

Now, I ask you, could you walk away??

I couldn't. Not at that price. £10.00 down to £1.56 ... It would be a crime to leave it there.

It has taken every ounce of determination to not touch it, not even just a smidgen.
I have cut it into pieces, I am serving it up to the family and feeling very noble as I pass it up and reach for an apple or nectarine etc instead.

One little piece ... Just think of that chocolatey yummyliciousness awaiting you, says one part of me .... No!! No!!! NO!!!! Says the other.

Which will win??

Hmmm ......

Weekly weigh in. Week 21.


Ok, so that just about sums me up this week.
Although the friend that sent it to me says it sums me up period!!!
Hahahaha
:)

She may just have a point.

So this week has indeed been one of desperate longing for chocolate. I've been pretty much having a battle with myself all week and I had no idea why.
The reason presented itself to me this morning just before weigh in. Yes, good ole time of the month. Sigh!!


Anyhow, I dragged myself VERY unwillingly to the scales and heaved myself upon them and waited for the dreaded numbers to scream out at me how bad I'd been ....

Weight
10st 3lb
BMI
28.2
Body fat
39.3%
Body water
41.5%

Maintained!!

Well after the week I've had I can't really complain at that. I know this week is going to be a struggle now though, or at least the first half of it will be as I crave sweet things badly at these times.

Anyhow, last weeks stats to compare.

Weight
10st 3lb
BMI
28.2
Body fat
39.4% (26% - 36% is what we should aim for apparently)
Body water
41.4% (Looking for 47% as the ideal)

So there have been a few little changes and at least, small as they were, they were in the right direction.
I just need to tough this week out and hope for good things.

Weekly weigh in. Week 20

This week has been a hard week for me.
I have SO wanted to just chuck the towel in and eat what I want but I've been very strict with myself and forced myself to stay on track.
So, did it work??

It was with mixed feelings I approached those scales this morning.
I'm telling myself I'll have maintained ONCE AGAIN but then this small pin prick of hope kept reminding me I've been very good and stayed on plan and had only 39 syns all week.

So here we go...


Weight
10st 3lb
BMI
28.2
Body fat
39.4%
Body water
41.4%

1lb loss!!!

Meaning I have now reached my first ONE STONE LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woohoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Over happy or what??!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:-D

Last week to compare

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

and just because it's such a milestone for me ... let's look back once more at those starting stats as well.

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

Honestly, I can't believe I've finally made it and I finally officially have that one stone loss at last!!!!

To 'see' that better, look at this.
I've lost 14lb now which is around 7 bags of sugar!!!!

I am no longer lugging all this around with me


Somehow seeing it like this makes it feel SOOOOO much more!!!


Can't wait to see 14 bags in a picture representing my loss but for now my next goal is a small goal but an important one to me.
My next goal is to see that 10 turn into a 9.
I want to get into those nine's so much.

So here's hoping for a good week and a good result next weigh in.

Take care!!

:)
