After a major gain last week, I have to be honest, it didn’t really give me a kick up the bum. I hadn’t done a meal plan so that didn’t help, but I don’t think I even logged into MFP last week either. Nevertheless, I tried my hardest not to eat rubbish and I managed quite well. Now we have our fruit & veg box again after our little break, that’s helping too.

I wasn’t really expecting any more of a gain this week as I hadn’t been eating anywhere near as much as the previous week, but I wasn’t expecting a huge loss either. I’ve started this week fresh with meal planning and logging my food, and I must continue this time, I just needed something to spur me on a little bit!

My week 5 stats are:

  • start weight – 203.6 lbs
  • target weight – 132 lbs
  • previous weight – 191 lbs
  • current weight – 184.4 lbs
  • weight loss this week – 6.6 lbs
  • weight loss to date – 19.2 lbs
  • weight loss to go – 52.4 lbs
So I had nearly a half stone loss again – but again I’m not expecting anywhere near that much next week!

  1. Well done on this week's loss! Are you using MFP to track calories? It is a useful app which I've used in the past. Thanks for linking up with #WWDISL!

  2. That's a brilliant loss, well done 🙂 I find I get much better results when I plan ahead. I need to sit and plan this week's meals today so I can get my target 2lb loss next week. I look forward to following your journey through #WWDISL xx
