Last week was the beginning of my new weight loss journey. I have been trying my hardest to log my calories on MyFitnessPal but some days I forget to add the last few things or close my diary, but I have been as strict as possible.

I didn’t do much exercise, I only really walked a worthy distance a couple of days last week, but that’s either pushing both boys or wearing one and pushing the other and between them they weigh 50 lbs+ (which is the amount of weight I happened to lose pre-babies – thinking of it now, wow!).

I mentioned last week that meal planning was helping me, and it really is as I can log my dinner and then how many calories I have to split between the rest of the day. Though I’m sure that J helping me eat all of my food is a great help too!

Anyway, here are my updated stats for week 1:

  • start weight – 203.6 lbs 
  • target weight – 132 lbs
  • previous weight – 188.6 lbs
  • current weight – 181.2 lbs
  • weight loss this week – 7.4 lbs
  • weight loss to date – 22.4 lbs
  • weight loss to go – 49.2 lbs

I lost half a stone! In one week! I am really truly amazed, that has never happened before! I’m pretty sure it’s because I immediately cut the junk out again, and I’d had lots of salty foods at the weekend too so I would have been packing sodium giving me water retention, which I would have lost gradually through the week.

I’m not expecting a great loss next week after this, but I will see you then!

I’m thinking of starting a “Weight Loss Wednesday” linky to keep me motivated, would anyone be interested in joining in?
