Chilling after our exercise session 😘

I just did 15 minutes on the treadmill. I plan on doing another 15 minutes this evening. It was exhausting, but enjoyable. Here’s me and nitro relaxing just after exercising. He’s all snug and cosy find my feet, for those of you who can’t see the photo is of nitro and me with nitro curled up at my feet

First exercise session

I just got done exercising. I am determined to exercise every day to lose the weight.

I did 1.5 miles on the treadmill. I am exhausted now. It was enjoyable though. I enjoyed the feeling of being on the treadmill.

I plan on doing the same tomorrow. If I can do 1.5 miles each day for a little while that will be great. Then I will slowly increase my distance over time. I am going at a speed of 3.2 on the treadmill right now.

I have to exercise in small incraments. I cant do it all at once. I try to do two or 3 10 minute sessions, or 2 15 minute sessions. Its hard for me to do 30 minutes all at once on the treadmill. I get bored easily.

I am glad I decided to do this though. It is going to really benefit me and it will be good for my health too as well as hopefully getting me the weight losses that I want.

Weigh in!

Weighing in in 10 minutes. Am so nervous.

Really hope I am going to be down. Really I really worked so hard this past week.

Fingers crossed I’ve done enough. After last weeks gain, I dont feel that confident. But we’ll see.

Wish me luck!

Update on weight related matters

So I went to my new slimming world group tonight! It was great! As I said in a previous post, my consultant is away, so we had a fill in one tonight. She was lovely!

When I got there the taxi driver brought me in, and he went in to ask someone to come out and assist me, which they did. They werent opened yet, but as soon as they found out I was there, they brought me in to the room where the weigh in and meetins would be held.

I decided that I’d restart my membership, so basically, I am starting over, as if I have never been before. I wanted to do that, since its a new group, start fresh, you know? So they said that would be fine, and I got weighed in.

I now weigh 14 stone 12 pounds! For my US readers, I weigh 208 pounds! I know I am starting over, but when I first joined slimming world over a year ago, I weighed 231 pounds, or 16 stone 7 pounds. So anyway, now I am starting at a weight of 14 stone 12, 208 pounds. And I will go from there.

I am very happy with that weight. I am right on plan now. I set my target at 9 stone, thats 126 pounds, so thats the weight I’d like to be at when I get to target. I know its going to take a while to get there, but I have time! I dont mind waiting! I will go slow so that I will get there!

So this is my very first week now! I came home, ate dinner, and then I went on the treadmill for 30 minutes. So I got my exercise in for the day! I feel great!

So thats the update! Thanks for all of the supportive comments and good wishes. I will keep you all posted as to how I do as the weeks go on!
I got this! I can do it!

I dont want to jinx myself but…

I think I am going to be down this week at weigh in! I really think so!

I weighed myself on my own scales just now, and it looks like I’ve lost a few pounds! I’m not going to actually say how much, since I want to wait to get on the weighing scales at slimming world, and take a proper reading. I will go by their scales, since that is the one that I weigh in on each week!

But standing on the scales just now, and seeing the number drop down from what I weighed last week, by a good number of pounds, made me feel so elated!

All my hard work is paying off!

I hope its right, and I am down!

Its not good news

I had a terrible result tonight at weigh in! I am so disappointed.

I was up 5 pounds! I cant believe I was up by that much!

Thats on top of the 3 pounds I was up the previous week! So I am up 8 pounds in total over two weeks!

Not good!

I was upset, if I said I wasnt I’d be lying. But I set myself two targets, an action target which is to look through my books to see if I can pick up some titbits, and then I set myself a mini target to lose 3 pounds next week and any more than that will be a bonus!

I cant keep continuing like this! Somethings gotta change!

I came home and I had chicken and broccoli rice for dinner, and then I got on the treadmill for 10 minutes. I have to do the exercise in short bursts, otherwise I lose motivation for it.

I plan on trying to get in my exercise at least twice a day now.

Bad news, but I can pull it back. I can change things. I know I can. I just have to believe in myself. I didnt lose 2 stone for nothing, I have to get back to losing again, I just have to.
