Another loss this week… of 3/4’s of a lb… mhm! I knew my previous week’s weight loss of 4lb was too good to be true. Though a loss is a loss no matter what! I checked on an old Lipotrim weight chart from last year and since September I have lost well over 2 stone – with 22lbs of that on Weight Watchers. Just goes to show that if you are prepared to put the work in, then diets can work and work well!
I haven’t been on the bike as much this week due to a broken toe (power cut + fridge + glass jar of Foie Gras = poorly toe!) so I really do need to break through the pain barrier and jump back on in order to keep toning up.
Musing Housewife and I have had many conversations regarding weight loss this week and are still as motivated on the diet as ever before. I have been on Weight Watchers now for 2 months and am so proud of my weight loss so far, I can’t wait to see how the scales will look in another 6 months!
This week’s Weight Watchers challenge is to allocate some ‘me time’ and assess how the diet is working for me and list 3 things I can do to support my weight loss.
Writing the list is probably easier than finding me time unfortunately! I am lucky if I get 2 hours a night to myself!
So… my 3 things I can do to support my weight loss…
1. Tell my diet buddy how I am feeling… Having a diet buddy also partaking on the Weight Watchers weight loss journey with me is awesome! We can moan to our hearts content and will not get bored of each other. We are both in exactly the same predicament, have similar weight loss goals and spur each other on. I would seriously recommend enlisting a diet buddy when you start your journey – the words of encouragement from someone who truly understands what you are going through keeps you motivated!
2. Keep my goal in mind… It may be easy to keep changing your mind about your target. I know the exact weight I would like to be and will work my hardest to get there. It would be great to wake up in the morning and for all the weight to have disappeared… but this is reality and that certainly does not happen. I have to remain patient and keep up the good work and routine that has already helped me lose 22lbs in 2 months.
3. Try to eat lunch more often… Some people struggle to find time to eat breakfast, I on the other hand struggle to find the time to make and eat lunch some days. This week has been extremely hard and I have been working as much as possible (the joys of being self employed!) and find that I simply cannot spare 10 minutes to make and eat lunch. This is dangerous territory for me as I know without lunch I have a tendency to pick at snack foods – mhm chocolate a great energy boost! Having lots of fruit in the house certainly stops me from reaching for the foods that put on the weight in the first place.
With this in mind I am going to go steaming into next week and do all I can to get back on track for a better weight loss…!
