Week 2 Weigh In

image

Start Weight:  11 st 13

Current Weight:  11 st 7

Total Loss: 6

Left to Lose: 21

I am a happy girl today, another 3 pound loss is really good considering its star week! I’m not expecting to lose 3 pound every week though but I’m going to aim for 2 pound next week. 

There are 22 weeks left until Christmas so that’s 22 weeks to lose 21 pounds, definitely doable!! 🙂

Keeping Motivated Part 2

In my last post about keeping motivated I made up a list of what I needed to do to to keep me on my diet, here’s my personal keeping motivated list:

Set a realistic goal

My goal is to get to 10 stone by Christmas, that gives me a total of 24 weeks to lose 27 pound, just over 1 pound a week seems realistic to me. (I’ve already lost 3 pound so that’s now only 24 pound in 23 weeks!)

New Beginnings…

So here we go again, after having lost nearly 2 stone a couple of years ago I have managed to put nearly all of it back on again (oops).  So here I am at 11 st 13 pound (I was 10 st 7 pound at my lowest) and on Day 1 of my new journey. Ideally I would like to get to 10 st 7 pound so i’ve 20 pound to lose, which is not unrealistic as long as I can actually stick to my diet for more than a couple of weeks.

If you follow me on instagram you will have seen me start again about 20 different times with different diets and fail every single time.  I haven’t been in the right frame of mind for dieting. I moved in with my boyfriend about 12 months ago and we have been enjoying life and eating everything in sight since then.

I finally feel like I am in the right frame of mind to start again for good, I turned 30 a couple of days ago and I had wanted to be at target for my 30th but it just never happened, so I am determined that I will be at target for Christmas this year .  Christmas is 24 weeks away so that evens out to about a 1 pound per week loss, which is absolutely possible.

Syn Free Sweet Potato Cups

I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go. I tweaked it slightly as the original used tater tots (I think they’re some kind of American potato type thing?) and I’ve just used good old sweet potato mash.  Anyway they’re super quick and simple to make, I did most of it by eye rather than measuring and they worked out great. Here’s what I did and I’ve also put a link to the original page so you can have a look there too as there’s loads of pictures to guide you.  Continue reading

Joining a Slimming World Group

This morning I went to join a group, up until now I’ve been doing Slimming World online and as you can probably tell from my lack of posts recently I seem to have lost my motivation completely! In fact I have lost my motivation so much that I’ve managed to put back on 10 pounds!!! That is an absolutely massive gain and i’m so disappointed in myself for letting it this far and not putting a stop to this sooner.  There’s no point in beating myself up over it though and so i’m back on track from tomorrow with no excuses!!
