So I reached My 4stones This week. (1 stone=14lbs)
Looking forward to getting that 60lbs profile photo up on here I can tell you. got another lb and a bit to go and im sticking it right up :D
Its been annoying me that Feel so different in myself Yet when I catch a glimpse of that Mirror The person staring back at me Just doesn't look how I feel, not even close.
So I figured it was time...
Time I celebrated becoming the new me I have cut and coloured my hair, looks so much more lively now, hadn't realised quite how dull it was looking until it was done.
I have brought myself new prescription sunglasses and normal everyday Glasses. I Have brought 2 new dresses for the summer as well as a few accessories.
(I added a picture of the fabric from one of my dresses. just love the pretty unusual print which I will wear for a street party we have been invited to for the diamond jubilee this june)
Its really not like me to splash out on myself, everything goes on my family normally so it felt really nice to do something for me.
I bagged up all my too small clothes a couple of months ago into sizes to gain some order, Today I tried on quite a few fitted Pant/ trousers That had no chance of coming close to going on the last time i saw them. And I am happy to say they now fit, although some a bit on the tight side I know It shouldn't be many weeks until I can wear them in comfort.
I was a Uk size 32-34 back in Jan 2012 - at my biggest
60lbs (nearly) later I am around a 24-26 Uk size
Quite huge still Sure but so much better than before.
My dresses I brought from regular clothing shops! how great is that!! I no longer have 1 store to shop in :D
hey guys I thought id blog briefly before going for my walk to let you guys know how things are going.
As you know ive been a stroppy mear as my weight actually went up last week. Im still not happy about it lol. But Thank you Lord my weight has come back down now to what it had been.
I am so much more relieved that the scales have moved off and most importantly down off that horrible 7 mark.
Its shaken my confidence some what im not going to lie. I felt at times like why bother etc etc. I felt i wanted to throw it all in for a moment there, Then I reminded myself that I knew these thoughts and feeling would come in at some point and that this is the real point to prove to myself that this is a change for life.
Im not loving been tested but hey ho I passed :)
On a none evil scale point of view, I do my measurements every fortnight / 2 weeks. in this time I had lost around 5-7lbs.
I lost cm's from everywhere all but my low leg, that just will not budge, my theory is all the walking is maintaining the size with mussel mass.
I dont want to change to much program wise as what i was doing before my grapefruit fad diet fail took place was working. I want to get back to what i had, - losing 3-4 lbs a week.
I am following some tips and advice that friends have been giving me to help move my metabolism and scale again.
The main thing im giving ago is to make sure my daily workouts, cals arent the same day in day out.
Thank you all again for your endless support. I just cant tell you how much i love you guys for it xxx
I passed my 3 month point diet/program point. I am celebrating it by having a horrible lack of losing any weight, The 3month point has always tested me to my limits, its the point i have given up the most in the past. I am being really tested at the moment but i will not give in.
I have been hit with the feeling of utter devastation by it, this last week has given me no success at all other than holding my own and not surrendering.
Its my own fault, let this be a warning to you all.
Do not get greedy and try still things to lose more.
I keep seeing these people on tv losing a lb or more a day and its been frustrating me to why i cant make that happen, so i went off in search of making it happen. I was losing 3-4lbs a week and I was pleased with that result but wondered could i push for more and be an even bigger loser.
I tried a diet known as the grapefruit egg diet, its a chemical diet which you have a set meal plan. after the first 3-4 days of the 7 I lost 7&1/2lbs. I was over the moon.
the rules are 1 week on 2 weeks off. last week was my 1st week "off"
I went back to what i have been eating to lose the 3-4lbs and what spark recommends for me. I gained back nearly 2lbs and I have been trapped on the 22.7.5 mark on my scale ever since.
I have lost NO WEIGHT AT ALL this week. nothing. monday to monday I am the same. I cant tell you how mortified i am by that.
so sparkies, do yourself a huge favour and listen to spark. fad diets do not work!!! my metabolism has crashed as a result of my stupidity
If you are losing week in week out change nothing. I am so full of regret right now.
My is on the 5th of may. I prey to the lord I will be passed this and losing again.
Doing everything by the book and playing the waiting game.
I prey to god I wont be punished much longer for my stupid mistake and my metabolism will let me start losing again
This has to be worth a mention right?
I am at my 1/4 of the way there marker! yay!!
I am so pleased with myself if i do say so Myself ha ha.
Oh another positive note I have noticed the people around me, there attitudes are changing towards me. I think people are realising That I am actually going to get there, that i am actually making this happen.
people now say "When" instead of "if"
I will do this, I will beat obesity & its going to be Forever!
