Weight Loss Wednesday Linky Week 49

Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Linky Week 49!

How are you all doing this week?

I totally gave up this past week, I’ve not stood on the scales once… mainly because I am a little scared to, though as my clothes still fit ok, it cannot be too bad hey?

I’ve certainly been eating more recently, I put it down to the fact that going into hibernation mode during the month of December is the most natural thing ever, comfort eating is a must in order to keep warm! That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!

Yummy pizzas and a Christmas dinner warm up with Jenny and her family have all contributed to my recent fitness fail. Or so I thought, not a regular full body shot taker, I have an image in mind of what I look like and how my body has changed but a picture taken on Monday night alleviated any fears I had of what I look like. Albeit I look ridiculously tired and straggly (I blame the pressure of carving the turkey!), my initial reaction was ‘I do not look as fat as I thought I did!’ Yes, I can bloody say that because this is my blog and that was my opinion.

Not only have I shied away from taking full body shots, but I certainly never appreciated them being flaunted on social media. Now though I have no qualms at all, because I know I have worked damn hard to transform myself and my weight and I am proud. Proud of my resilience and the fact I cannot even recall the last time I had a drink!

Ok, ok, ok… I have just stood on the scales and I surprised myself. I am at D Weight, 4lbs away from target and a good half stone lighter than I expected to be. I haven’t been to the gym in over 2 weeks and haven’t been easy on the takeaways. I am not asking questions and I am taking it!

Have the scales ever surprised you? Do you find that taking a break from them helps weight loss?

If I take my eye off the ball the weight creeps back on. My body likes to store it all on my hips! You look fab and shouldn’t worry about having your photo taken at all. I’ve included a link to my 70’s dinner party post this week xx

I am both pleased and saddened that you were unable to look at the scales this week. I hope it does not mean you are spiralling down to defeat…I did.

Love the stealthy hand in corner of shot nicking a pig in blanket 😀
I think sometime having a little time away really helps, I had a few bad weeks and gained only a little and I feel spurred on to continue!

Ha ha ha! I hadn’t even noticed that! 😉 Cheeky monkey!! Definitely keep on it chick, our weight can certainly surprise us on occasion! Hope you are having a good week!xx

You look bloomin gorgeous so flaunt it ! I’ve said this before but the biggest change I always notice is your radiant smile 🙂 Losing weight is the (relatively) easy bit, maintaining is the hard bit so you’re doing a fantastic job – go you ! And big hugs for Beth too xxx

Thank you so much lovely! With losing weight, especially in my face, dimples have now appeared! I am trying to smile as much as possible! Hope you are well and having a lovely week xx

Glad the scales surprised you. Don’t beat yourself up for taking a break, we can’t be ‘good’ all the time!
Also, you look amazing!

S1m December 10, 2015 - 2:56 pm

Stunned me for sure but hey, I am taking it! It’s Christmas, we are certainly allowed to take a break! Hope you are having a lovely week chick!xx

Amber Ludwig December 9, 2015 - 9:06 pm

Ummm.. you look fantastic!! We all fall off the wagon! Thankfully good habits tend to win at some point 😉

S1m December 10, 2015 - 2:55 pm

Thanks lovely! I’ve fallen off but continue to lose weight, totally confusing me – either that or my scales have broken from usage!!

Amanda Jordan December 10, 2015 - 12:14 pm

I’m starting my journey to weight loss this week. I feel that it’s going well do far.

Going by your photo on this blog…you can afford to “slide” for one week…BUT DON’T LET IT DESTROY YOU’RE ULTIMATE GOAL

The holidays are the hardest time. But I know you can do it.

Jerry Marquardt December 10, 2015 - 9:24 pm

I would love to dedicate a day for weight loss. I need to do something.

Betsy Barnes December 10, 2015 - 11:24 pm

Scales do surprise me, good for most of the time. During the holidays, I do stay off them, continue with my portion control, usually works for me.
