When I get back from Florida, I’m not sure if I’ll be continuing with Get Fit Friday or finding a different way/day to track my weight. However today is the last Friday before I go away so it seemed like a good idea to do a round up of sorts.
It was almost a whole year ago since I started this particular weight loss journey. Nat and I, over at Twice the Mum, came up with the idea of Weight Loss Wednesday and together we motivated each other to try and lose weight. At the end of the year, I moved the feature over to my own blog as Nat wasn’t trying to lose weight any more for a while. I started at 13st 3lb and got down to 11st 1lb – that was a loss of 30lb (2st, 2lb). However that was 2 weeks ago and in my heart of heart I knew I had given up a little as Florida neared. As much as I wanted to be the thinnest and lightest I could be, I also knew I was about to put a whole load of weight back on. I didn’t stop trying completely but I knew I just wasn’t trying as hard as before – you may have noticed there was no Get Fit Friday post this time last week. However I braved the scales one last time this morning, so I had an accurate figure of my weight-loss before Florida. I was actually pleasantly surprised.
Start weight: 13st 3lb
Last weigh in: 11st 1lb
Current weight: 11st 2lb
Total Loss: 29lb (2 st, 1lb)
This week I put on weight but it was only a pound and honestly I am okay with that. As I head off to Florida next week I’m sure I’ll be stuffing my face and enjoying my holiday, so it’s likely I’ll come back weighing at least a half stone more! I’m not going to worry about that for now though – but when I get back I’ll definitely be back to weight loss. 10 stone is still my target and even if it takes till the end of Summer to achieve it, I’ll hopefully still get there.
Thanks very much for joining me on this weight loss journey so far. I’ve appreciated everyone’s comments and advice. Good luck to anyone who is currently trying to lose weight – I know it’s not an easy adventure to take!
