So here I am, into week 2 of my new (and hopefully final!) weight loss journey. I’ve been slacking a bit more this week than I did last week. The beginning of the week went okay, and then I missed one day of tracking and it went a bit downhill from there. It always happens. I wouldn’t say I ate much more than I usually do when I strictly log, but I maybe had a few extra nibbles that may have taken me over my calories. Also I had one or two emotional days where I just couldn’t stop eating – I hate being an emotional eater. The new Monday weigh-in seems to be doing the trick though as I haven’t pigged out over the weekend.

Exercise wise, same as week one – not a lot! Mainly walking, pushing both boys in the double pushchair. We’re going away next week so when we come back, N will have turned 6 months and I hope everything will be back to normal, so I can start doing some calorie burning workouts again – if I can find the time as J doesn’t nap!

Here are my week 2 stats:

  • start weight – 203.6 lbs 
  • target weight – 132 lbs
  • previous weight – 181.2 lbs
  • current weight – 183 lbs
  • weight loss this week – 1.8 lbs GAIN
  • weight loss to date – 20.6 lbs
  • weight loss to go – 51 lbs

Yes, so I had a gain of 1.8 lbs. I wasn’t surprised to be honest after not tracking for a few days. Though I was expecting it to be more as it usually ends up being so, so I was pleasantly surprised. I must not go off tangent this week!

  1. Sorry to hear you have gained. Seems unfair to put weight back on for just a few days of overindulgence. It's difficult to exercise when children are small. I used to push H round in a buggy until he was 4 which helped me, but not all children will tolerate that.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that we run a weight loss link up every wednesday –
    Also we're both from Lincolnshire!
