well I had a really bad result on the scales tonight. I was up 1.5 pounds. I sware, if I continue like this I’m going to scream, the same damn 2 pounds gaining and then losing it for the past 3 or 4 weeks. Ug. Sigh. Its annoying and thats putting it mildly. Anyway. My consultant gave me some tips. Basically she said I’ve reached a plateau, and I basically cant go any further unless I do something to drastically change things, basically in a nutshell I have to now work twice as hard in order to lose the weight. As if I wasnt already working hard enough! She told me that maybe I should try eating more speed, that means a ton more vegetables. So I am going to start having stir frys. I am going to eat stir fry at least 3 or 4 times a week from here on out. I am also going to completely cut out bread. I am going to stop buying breaded chicken and breaded fish and other high fat foods. I wasnt eating a lot of them but I was still eating some. I will have slimming world meals on days where I feel tired or dont want to cook because at least I know the slimming world meals are free from fat. She basically told me to bulk up my plate as well with extra vegetables, so that I get extra speed in, and eat more fruit as that is speed food too. So with that in mind I am hoping I can start losing again. I wont be going next week but the week after I am hoping for at least a 5 pound weight loss. I know if I work super hard I can lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks. I’ll also be exercising so that will also help. I was very disappointed tonight but what can you do, it happens, I cant lose all the time I guess even if I want to.
I had a great workout today! I really got in my exercise for the day! Mom and me walked down to the gym. My sister had offered us a ride, but we chose to walk. It only took us 10 minutes to walk there. It is all downhill. So we got there and I scanned my membership card and then we went into the gym. I went on the treadmill, I did 20 mins on it. I walked 1 kilometre. Then I went on the bike for 10 mins, I also did 1 kilometre on the bike. I felt so good afterwords! I was buzzed! I really enjoyed it!
After finishing up in the gym we went to the store to get my fruit for the week. I got lots of fruit. I got oranges, pears, bananas, kiwi’s, pineapple, strawberries and grapes. So I wont be short on fruit for the week lol!
Then we got the bus home after that. I was tired from all the exercise. I am not going to the gym now again until wednesday. But tomorrow morning I am going to go to the local park near moms to walk.
This morning, I have an assessment at the gym. The instructor is going to give me a programme to follow. I need to be shown how to do weights and use the weights machines, so he’ll show me how to do that.
Then I can get going and really get into exercising!
Mom already said she’d take me to the gym on saturday. Yay!
I’m excited to start. Of course I am even going to get some exercise in before I go to the gym at all, as I am walking there with my PA!
So yeah! Fit is good though, right?
So had my weekly weigh in last night, was down a half a pound!
Yay its going in the right direction!
So slow though! Cant wait to start exercising to see if that speeds it up a little!
I hope it will!
Still though I am happy with my result. I am happy to be losing again after the blip of the last few weeks.
Am now down 2 stone 3 pounds! Or 31 pounds for my US readers!
Its time to go get weighed. I am nervous. I dont think I’ve done enough and I dont think I am going to lose anything. If I do I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I really dont know though I am not getting my hopes up. I was mostly good this week but there was a few times I slipped up. I sneakily weighed myself at home, but not sure my scales is right, sometimes it says I’ve lost, at other times it says I have gained. So I really dont know what to believe.
Guess I’ll find out soon enough. Fingers crossed guys!
I am very happy. I had my weigh in and I managed to lose half a pound this week, I know that doesnt seem like much but to me its huge. I’ve been struggling for the past two weeks, I was up both weeks, so to actually go in and be down any amount is huge progress. And I am super excited. I am very very happy with the result I got tonight.
Just the fact that I now know what to do to get a loss on the scales, is huge.
I am very proud of my achievement and I hope I can continue my success for the next couple of weeks. There are only 13 weeks until christmas, if I lost a pound a week I’d be almost down another stone by then!
I came home and I cooked fish, a baked potato and some veggies. I just ate it and it was soo good.
I cant go to bed for an hour or so until my food digests, so I think I’ll go read for a while. I think I will sleep well tonight, I’m actually quite tired.
So I’ll say good night and if I wake up in the night I may come back online for a while to do emails or blog.
Off to slimming world now to be weighed in.
Am so so hoping I’ve lost this week. I do not wanna see a gain on the scales!
I really thought the week went pretty well, so I am hopeful for a good result!
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
