So after my last couple of weigh ins I was really disappointed with myself as I was just so out of the zone and I knew I absolutely needed to get back on track. Last week was okay and I was mainly on it, but my head just wasn’t completely back in the game as I had a Subway breakfast sub on Saturday and I have had the odd few biscuits here & there (damn those favourite custard creams! Unfortunately there aren’t any biscuits I don’t like…). I had been a lot better than the couple of weeks over Christmas though when I gained almost half a stone.
Brushing that aside, I finally had another non scale victory when I hit the sales and bought a pair of jeans, a dress, a shirt, a pair of pyjamas, and a coat, all in a size 12! I haven’t been a size 12 for around ten years – close to it, but not quite – but now I can! So it just goes to show that’s it’s not always about the number on the scales. I haven’t measured myself for at least six months either so I really need to do that, to see how many inches I have dropped over the last year.
One more thing I wanted to share, it’s just passed my one year anniversary since I first joined and I am so so happy that I plucked up the courage to go to that first meeting, as Slimming World has truly changed my life forever.
#transformationtuesday So I got my #SlimmingWorld joining date wrong last week and it’s actually a year today that I joined, but anyway… Like many others, I have kept my ‘fat’ jeans and I decided to try them on as I haven’t since I started SW. These are jeans I was wearing way before pre babies and I lost some weight on my own before that (3.5st, but gained 2.5st back with pregnancies), but prior to starting #sw I wasn’t far off being back in them. These are a size 20 and I was an 18 when I joined. It has been a long journey with many obstacles along the way, but I am finally heading to where I want to be. I am truly astonished looking at these photos and I can’t believe the one on the left is me, I never want to go back there 😳 #slimmingworlduk #sw #swuk #swfamily #swfriends #swmafia #swsupport #weightloss #weightlossjourney

So this week I went to weigh in desperately hoping for a loss. As I said, I had still been a bit off plan but not as much as over Christmas & New Year so even if it was a gain again, it shouldn’t have been as big as the last couple of weeks. I was quite relieved when I stepped on the scales to see a 1lb loss – only another 5lb until pre-Christmas weight…
My stats for this week (week 48):
- starting weight – 13st 4.5lb
- previous weight – 10st 8lb
- current weight – 10st 7lb
- loss this week – 1lb
- loss so far – 2st 11.5lb
- Club 10 target weight – 11st 13.5lb
- final target weight – 9st 7lb
