    >25lb Goal? Done!

    > I lost 2lb this week!  Which means I can finally, finally, finally (after almost two months!) replace the 20lb lost badge in my sidebar with this lovely 25lb lost one!!  I’ve got a feeling that this is the most weight I’ve ever lost or certainly not very far off of it.  When I was at uni I did lose a lot of weight but as much as I wanted to hit the two stone goal (that was my overall aim) I didn’t get much beyond a stone and a half. I’ve continued to pretty much cut out all snacks which I think is what has made the difference and…

    >On the move again at last

    >Yes, this week finally sees some progress.  I was feeling very discouraged so that is definitely a good thing!  Basically I cut out pretty much all snacking and it’s definitely worked. I’m down 2 and three quarter pounds this week.  Which puts me back down to my lowest weight of this journey.  I won’t make the “virgin fat next week” comments I did last time because I think that jinxed me but… here’s hoping!  I’m 17 stone 4 3/4 pounds now (242.75lb) and I really hope to end September with the number that starts with 16 stone something. I was thinking about a rest of the year goal yesterday.  I…

    >And now for something completely different…

    >…only I’m not really sure what that might be. Up two this week.  I’m definitely plateauing and need to do something different to shake things up.  I’ve got one or two small ideas but really I’m stuck on which is the best one.  Probably all of them in moderation but I’m also struggling a bit with my depression over the last few days and that really doesn’t help.

    >Thoughts On Progress So Far

    >I’m up 1/8th of a pound today.  Which really is just the same as staying the same because it’s absolutely nothing. I actually thought I might have gained a little so I’m really pleased. I realised yesterday that although I feel a bit like I’m struggling and stuck with my weight loss right now that’s not a huge deal.  Obviously I would like to lose more this year and I do need to lose more.  But even if I stay at this weight for the rest of the year I’ll still be happy with my progress.  And I’ll still have come a long way from where I was.  I do…

    >A Good Things List

    >When I originally wrote my Good Things List it was after three weeks without coke or chocolate.  As it’s now been more than 100 days it’s time for an update! Previously I’ve had a tendency towards high blood pressure.  Today it was 128/80 or totally normal Blood draws should be easier as I get thinner. Being I’m a terrible stick that’s a good thing. At the beginning of the year my lifejacket straps were as big as we could adjust them.  I’ve had to tighten them a couple of times this year! My measurements have changed downwards slightly. My BMI has gone from 46 something to 42 something according to the…

    >My new lucky number

    >I’m down three quarters of a pound this week.  Which is definitely better than nothing.  Considering I went out to eat at Prezzo last Wednesday and then went to Frankie and Benny’s on Thursday it’s actually pretty good. I really can’t think of much else to say this week.  I did buy some new clothes this morning.  I do have to take one of the pairs of trousers back as they are a lot too small but I’d wondered that when I bought them partially because they were only £5 and also a different style to my normal.  A second pair (pinky cords) did up but was too tight.  I’m…

    >100 Days!

    >Today is the 100th Day of my being off of Coke and all things chocolate.   The last day I had either was 30th April. For this girl who was drinking about a litre of the stuff everyday and eating over 100g of chocolate each day, that’s amazing.  Particularly given the fact that the original goal was 3 weeks!! I did consider that my next goal should be weight related rather than time (specifically I was thinking of “until I’ve reached 3 stone lost”) but now I’m thinking a time based goal might be better.  3 stone would mean I’d doubled my total weight loss and there’s no guarantee how long…

    >The Quickest of Updates

    >Lovely lazy morning and a relatively lazy afternoon.  BUT every time I’ve tried to get online and get stuff done I’ve been interrupted (God knows how much worse it would be if I didn’t live alone!). So this will be super quick as I’m being picked up for sailing in about five minutes. I’m down 1lb this week!  Total weightloss is now 21 and a half lbs.  I’m really really pleased.  Particularly given how much I’ve been out and about and eating “on the go” foods.  I have been making healthier choices and doing my best but as much as I had hoped to still lose weight I did think…

    >Down 2

    >This is liable to be relatively quick, I’m going out around 11 and I want to get my gear for sailing sorted before I go so I don’t have to do it when I get back (likely to be flying in and back out again). I did manage to exercise everyday this week apart from yesterday. And I really pushed the water.  When mum and I were out at a show on Saturday night I just drank water, I didn’t have any wine or J2O or anything else despite wanting it and I resisted asking Mum to get me a snack when she went to get herself one!!  Plus, when…

    >Slipping a bit.

    >This week I am up two pounds.  Which is a little disappointing although I’m not really surprised either.  This past week probably hasn’t been the best it could have been in terms of healthier eating etc but it wasn’t horrific either and I’m still not drinking Coke or eating Chocolate so that’s definitely something.  To be honest I was probably due for a bit of a blip around this time because I’ve been doing what I’ve been doing for 11+ weeks now and I probably need to shake things up now.  In a way I’m surprised I haven’t plateaued a bit before now. Plans for this week are to really…
