Weekly weigh in. Week 1

The first week was much better than I expected.
I had a couple of times of feeling hungry and I didn't drink as much water as I should, but overall, it wasn't too bad at all.

This coming week I will make a big effort to drink more and that should help with the 'hunger' hopefully.

Anyhow, onto the weight news!!

WEIGHT
10st 11lb 6oz (151lb,) (68.49kg)

BMI
29.8

BODY FAT
42.8%

BODY WATER
38.9%

2lb LOSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Well, a sliver under 2lb if we're being really precise but I'll go with the 2lb for motivational purposes, lol

Last week:
Weight
10st 13lb 4oz (153lb) (69.4kg)
BMI
30.1
Body fat
43.3%
Body water
38.5%


I haven't done any exercise this week but hopefully that will come as well as I start to feel a bit more energetic.

I know I'm unlikely to lose more than 1lb a week generally so it isn't going to fall off me quickly. It's going to be a long process.
Even so, I think just feeling you've made a start and the numbers are going down is a real boost and hopefully I'm going to stick to plan and have another good week!!

I'm off to eat now, haha

Starting over.

Well I never got to do that re-start last time, due to everything that kicked off and has since happened here, but although things are still on going, I'm going to make a good effort to get back on track with this diet.

I have to.

I'm almost back to where I was when I first started dieting. Also, I'm back up on my reflux medication to taking it every other day, whereas I was down to every third day and getting towards where I thought it might even be possible to improve on that!

I'm going to post my weight again and keep like a diary almost, of how I'm doing in the week, when I'm doing well and when I'm feeling challenged by it and hope that helps to keep me on track!!

I'm doing this at home, not going to a slimming world group, but I will probably follow the slimming world diet plan.

So  .....

START WEIGHT
10st 13lb 4oz (153lb) (69.4kg)

BMI
30.1

BODY FAT
43.3%

BODY WATER
38.5%

Oh my!! That actually makes me cringe looking at it written down.
But that's all to the good!!
Hopefully it will help me stick on track.

So off to have breakfast now and
hopefully a good first day!!

Happy dieting
:)

Restart!!

My last post was in February and I have been on and off this diet since then like a yoyo.
I couldn't seem to really buckle down to it again and I would be good, splurge, be good etc and on and on, like a hamster on a never ending cycle of events.

Well I could give all kinds of reasons as to why it has been and is, too difficult for me to stick with this but that won't help me change my mindset. It only gives me excuses that I can use to try and justify to myself for my lack of will power and motivation.  
No, excuses are totally pathetic!! No, what I need is a goal and some determination. I need to really, really WANT to get back to it and try.

So I have dutifully and with much fear and trepidation, got back on the scales. I recorded the result and once again I intend to write it all down here and hope that will help get me back on track. 

My first goal is to see a 9 again instead of the 10 in the stones of weight. I forgot to record the ounces as well this week, so I can't remember if I was nearer to the 6lb or the 5lb. 
From now on though I'll record the whole weight so I can see even tiny changes.

So here it is

Weight
10st 5lb, (145lb, 65.77kg)
BMI
28.5
Body fat
39.9%
Body water
41.1%

If I never try, it'll never change.

Any comments of support or help are welcome. 
I'm going to do the slimming world diet myself at home.

Let's do this!!!!!

New start. Weekly weigh in. Week 1



So it was with much trepidation I approached those scales this morning. Probably more so because I sat and scoffed ice cream and chocolate yesterday!! 

Yes I did. 

It was like as if I had to get my last bit of badness in before my new start today and I kept telling myself I would regret it but there was just no stopping me.

Well, new start, new mindset.

As its a new start I'm going to record the ounces now, as well as the stones and pounds. I think I might write the conversions to just pounds and kilograms in brackets as well. The conversions don't count the ounces as I could only convert the stones and lb's.
For the record I'm 5ft tall and so every ounce shows. I can't carry it like a taller person, so I just look like a little round squashy dumpling.

Anyway, let's stop rambling on, trying to put it off and let's just write it down and be done with it.


Weight
10st 4lb 4oz. (144lb, 65.31kg)
BMI
28.4
Body fat
39.8%
Body water
41.1%

First goal for me is to get into those 9's.
I also have a goal of trying to do more exercise but I need to think about what I want to do with that at the moment. I might get back on the wii fit and see if I can actually keep to it this time.

Anyway, new start .... New mindset .... Let's do it!!!

Back from oblivion!!

So a few days after my last post I had a little accident and suffered a head injury.
It's taken 7 weeks to get back on my feet so dieting just wasn't on my agenda at all.

Anyhow, I am making a new start once more on Wednesday.

I do think I've gained weight since my last entry with not keeping to plan at all but I'm not going to let it bother me, I'm just starting afresh.

So tomorrow I will weigh in and put my new stats on here and then do my best to have a great week with good results!!

See you tomorrow

Take care

:)
