Well it’s Week 5 of my Get Fit Friday series and already I’m looking to make some changes! As you may know, this weigh-in linkup originated from Twice the Mum and our Weight Loss Wednesday series. When I pulled the linkup over to my own blog, I changed it from Wednesday to Friday (obviously) and gave it a new name (obviously again!). However after only 4-5 short weeks, I’ve decided the linkup isn’t really working for me. I love the sense of community and supporting other bloggers on their journey, but there are so many linkups for weight loss that really we’re all just linking up in a loop. As such, while I will be continuing on with my Get Fit Friday series, it will no longer be a linkup. I would love for people to still feel free to comment and share their links or even just their results, but I just won’t be adding the linkup component. Instead I will be looking for other linkups that I can leave my link with and of course following everyone else’s journey and offering support!
Anyway, onto this week. Overall its been a great week! After the disaster of feeling massively under-motivated last week, I’m pleased to report it was very different this week. I’ve stuck to my calories every day and I’ve been so careful and so much more aware than I usually am. I also went shopping twice this week, walking around town for a couple of hours on both occasions. Since the shopping was mostly window shopping, I saved money and still lost pounds (see what I did there?). In fact, I wrote about my top three healthy habits and both walking and watching my calories were in there – two things that have massively helped me this week.
So how have I got on? Look and see!
Start weight: 13st 3lb
Last weigh in: 11st 6lb
Current weight: 11st 4lb
Total Loss: 27lb (1 stone 13lb)
I’m so pleased with the results this week. I was talking to the girls about my weight loss before school this morning and one of the things that really give me a boost is just how pleased they are for me as well. Megan pointed out that if I could still manage to lose 2lb a week till we go, I would lose 1 more stone. This would leave me at 10 st 4 lb by the time we go and I would be more than happy with that. To be honest, I’d be happy at 10 st 7lb.
This week has been great motivation and proved to me that if I just try hard, I can do it. I’ll be sticking with it very much this week and fingers crossed for another good loss next week!
