Week 40

Current weight 12 stone 9.25 lbs…which is roughly 80.4 kg or 177.25 lbs

A loss of 1.75lbs over the past week, and I am very happy with that. I am also feeling sorry for myself as I have a cold! But luckily it can’t be shared through the blog so I hope everyone else is feeling fine.

This will be a shorter blog than the last few as actually not much has occurred in the past week other than me discovering that a naan bread…when it comes in a pack of 2 (I must work out how to make these myself) are actually 2 portions to each slice of bread! Calorie counting is almost like an obsession at times I tell you, but the feature on myfitnesspal where you can scan a bar code is a really useful feature.

Finally, I found a recipe for Chocolate Chickpea Fudge…but can’t decide whether to try that or not, the last snack/dessert I made using chickpeas was not nice! Would be willing to make it if someone contacts me via here asking me to do so…(trying to work out if people can actually contact me if they want to.) Oh, and before I forget, I tried the pakoras from last week using feta cheese cubes instead of cauliflower, wow is all I can say, they were really tasty!

Week 37

Current weight 12 stone 10 lbs…which is roughly 80.73 kg or 178 lbs

The wedding day hath arrived! And so I decided I would write this the day before so if I could remember before leaving the house I just needed to update the weights! Otherwise I run the risk of forgetting I need to do this! Not because of drinking too much alcohol, more that I know by the end of everything I will be too tired to want to go onto the computer and actually do this…

The past 7 days have been interesting, my weight has moved up and down about 3lbs and so at this point I do not know if I will have lost weight tomorrow or not, as of this morning I had lost 1/2lb, but last Monday I was 1lb down on Tuesday so who knows. I now have a week off work and so have some time and new recipes to add all going well. In addition this morning I tried the mug omelette which was quick and easy and not too many calories.

Saturday, I went out for a meal with the family, I had what I thought would be a filling but small sandwich, I have to say it was anything but filling and as a result when the cake came out. I was not only happy to eat a slice, I also feel like I ate my weight in butter cream! We have found my downfall where even I can’t resist ha ha. So if I have lost weight it was only because well, I have lost weight and so my weight in butter cream wasn’t too much.

So, as you can see I only went and lost 2lbs! The fact I broke through the 180 lbs mark means a lot to me and makes it a good start to the day….next goal under 80 kg!

Week 32

Current weight 13 stone 1.25…which is roughly 83.12kg or 183.25lbs

A loss of 1.25lbs which I am happy with as I had a somewhat sedentary day yesterday. I was sat either in front of my computer at work, in the car or in a classroom. I didn’t even walk to work I drove as I needed my car. The last week as a whole has been quite interesting in that I have been very busy but also grateful for having food prepared for dinner in the evening as well as lunch. I also spent last weekend batch cooking breakfast burritos, mushroom tagliatelle, butternut squash dhal and blueberry oatmeal snack bars (I know I really must add that recipe under snacks, but this can give those who are interested a pre-look!) I find that cooking/baking over the weekend also helps me with snacking (after over 2 months now, interestingly the pull of fizzy drinks is still there and strongest at the weekend). Activities such as these at the weekend also helps me relax which is a win win!

A short blog post this week I know, but work is just very busy and I am focussing on ensuring all meals are ready to prevent me wasting money buying food at work and making unhealthy choices!

Interesting fact, my starting weight was 14 stone 5lbs, late July feels like a lifetime away now, I never really celebrated the passing of 1 stone as to be honest, I am more interested in how my clothes feel and my bank balance most of the time! But last Tuesday, a colleague commented ‘you look like you are losing weight again’ but it really wasn’t said in a positive way. Those kind of comments are really not helpful I wanted to say, and you look like you have gained weight again… Of course it is not acceptable to say it the other way in society, but what I actually did say is yes, over the past 8 months I have lost a stone in weight, a nice healthy pace and I eat now so much better than I did before then. I went on to say I am more than happy to share my blog with you, but by then they had carried on walking and was no longer listening after saying their piece. Don’t let others ever put you off with well-meaning comments!
