My Weight Loss

Who am I?

I am the frustrated currently 40 something who has over the past 3 years lost weight 3 times and put it back on again. I am a single mum to a flown the nest 19 year old and I love food. I haven’t always been overweight, and am actually a keen runner (although more of a jog and chat when …

Week 25

Current weight 13 stone 11…which is roughly 87.54kg or 193lbs Well, although I am happy that I finally managed to lose a lb, I am still somewhat frustrated as late last week I had in fact lost 2lbs. But onwards and upwards! I am now on day 22 of no fizzy drinks, crisps or chocolate and actually despite my lack …

Week 24

Current weight 13 stone 12…which is roughly 87.99kg or 194lbs Well have had a really interesting week where in the last 7 days I only spent money food shopping and have spent no money at works at all! Not sure why it is that I am still holding at the same weight though… In addition I tried 3 more breakfast …

Week 23

Current weight 13 stone 12…which is roughly 87.99kg or 194lbs Well am in a state of shock my weight stayed the same, especially as I was out for dinner last night and know what I ate. But, well this isn’t about dieting it is about eating the right food at a low cost. Sometimes we go out to eat and …

Week 22

Current weight 13 stone 12…which is roughly 87.99kg or 194lbs Wow, from Christmas Day until News Years Day I actually lost 2lbs! My secret? Actually on this occasion pure will power! So, can you believe I have been doing this for 22 weeks??? I can’t believe it has been that long, but I intend now to start this year as …

Week 21

Happy Christmas! Gutted to read the scales this morning as 14 stone, the last few weeks have been hard but that is no excuse, have had a sore throat now for nearly 2 weeks (also not an excuse) but one more Christmas dinner to eat (yes tomorrow I eat another one) and then it is time to refocus myself again. …

Week 20

Current weight 13 stone 12…which is roughly 87.99kg or 194lbs I can’t lie, although I have put on another pound, after having had a fairly relaxing week and a weekend on the sofa feeling sorry for myself fighting off a sore throat (it hasn’t won yet but I am still fighting it!) I am not really surprised. And before next Tuesday’s …

Week 19

Current weight 13 stone 11…which is roughly 87.54kg or 193lbs As Christmas approaches and I had my 2nd Christmas meal of the week today I am trying to look at making good choices as well as trying not to notice the 1lb gain. I have been back on the cheaper fizzy drink for a week now and it has not …

Week 18

Current weight 13 stone 10.25…which is roughly 87.2kg or 192.25lbs A gain of 1lb but I am happy with that, I am surprised I have not gained all the weight I lost, and am slightly fearful now of this month, as December is a month that people can end up some times overeating or use it as an excuse. Maybe …

Week 17

Current weight 13 stone 9.25…which is roughly 86.75kg or 191.25lbs Well, since I last weighed in 2 weeks ago you may notice I have lost nearly 4lbs, that of course has all been mostly caused by me being ill and as of today I am still not able to eat a healthy diet. Well healthy in that I am not really …
