Okay, so it’s technically week 5, but I skipped last week because I was on holiday.

So, I said in my last update that I was going to try to be good whilst I was away. That kind of happened. I didn’t eat as much as I would normally eat on holiday, but maybe my choices weren’t great – we ate out and got meals in a few times. But hey, I was on holiday! I did a bit of walking, but we were on a boat a lot of the time so it was when we happened to stop anywhere.

I’m back on it this week though, as I can definitely feel it; I feel so bloated, and look about 6 months pregnant! I was dreading weighing in yesterday but it wasn’t quite as bad as I was expecting.

So my week 4 stats:

  • start weight – 203.6 lbs
  • target weight – 132 lbs 
  • previous weight – 183 lbs
  • current weight – 191 lbs 
  • weight loss this week – 8 lbs GAIN!
  • weight loss to date – 12.6 lbs
  • weight loss to go – 59 lbs
So oops. I gained just over half a stone. I’m hoping for a half decent loss next week though.

  1. Weight loss can take time so don't put too much pressure on yourself. I put on eight pounds over the summer too but I'm back healthy eating now, for me I know a low (not no) carb way of life is best. I have PCOS and this is the healthiest way for me to eat. I have eliminated my for my family and I too which is really helping eldest's rashes and I don't feel bloated. I read Wheat Belly and it made me stop. My Mum and her sisters are all intolerant. Anyway good luck lovely x
