Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 23!
Thank you to those that linked up last week and to all of those who have joined us throughout this 23 week journey so far… almost half way through the year!
This past week has been a good one in terms of weight loss. As you may be aware, I am currently on the New You Plan VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet), all seems to be going really well and the first week’s weight loss has really spurred me on. You can read about my first week on the New You Plan and catch up with my weight loss so far!
Not only am I noticing a difference but so are the people around me and it is lovely to hear compliments, it perks you up and keeps you going. The best part is my hips, as you all know they are my problem area but currently seem to be shifting. Although I am still the same size on the bottom, I have noticed that my bra size has gone down… just in the back and not the cup fortunately (whoop!) but this has to be a good sign!
Roll on the day when I can go shopping and treat myself to some new clothes to show off all my hard work so far!
I visited the gym yesterday and am going again today to keep momentum flowing and tone up whilst my body is losing weight at a quicker rate. Drinking lots of water is easy for me and I could quite happily drink my chilled bottled water all day – the way I keep us is by checking how many empties I have on the side… currently my blue bin is almost at full capacity, but there is no stopping me! I am trying to only stand on the scales once a week to measure weight loss… bring on Monday!
A few weeks ago, I found myself in a real lull. After such a great weight loss so far this year, I lost my way slightly and couldn’t find the boost I needed. The New You Plan has come at the right time to keep me going on my weight loss journey. I’m slightly nervous about the re-feed process however there are some really handy hints on the New You Plan site and I will of course be keeping up with drinking lots of water – the difference in my skin alone is fantastic!
I’m halfway through my journey now, with another 2 stone to go… this WILL be shifted by the end of the year – I’m back to being very determined again!
How are you getting on this week? Have you found the boost you need to keep you going?
