Weight Loss Wedneday

Well I have to report a small loss which is a step in the right direction and makes me feel positive for the future.  The scales now read ___ 4 1/2 so I need to keep going and hope that in two - three weeks time I will be reporting that I have gone below the stone threshold.

I have exercised well this week (5 hours - 300 minutes) and I tried out one of the recipes from my new dieting book:
that went down a treat with both my husband and myself which bodes well for the future.  So this week will give me the opportunity to try out a couple more and I have more exercise planned so that I will have done 300 minutes this week too.

Last week, I had an interesting comment left by author Crystal http://crystalcollier.blogspot.com about how muscle focused exercises could help with weight loss.  I looked into this and interestingly found many references by doctors of how the bigger the muscle the more calories are burned and for longer so this week I did a bit more exercise focused on my larger muscles and hope to continue and add to this this week too.

I am also going to be measuring certain areas of my body so that even if the scales do not seem to be going down as much as I'd like hopefully my body shape will be changing for the better.

  2. Well done, you'd doing really well.

    I keep saying I'm going to take my measurements and then forget. I think it'd be a nice boost if the scales don't go down as quickly as you'd like.

    1. That's what I'm hoping and if my body shape changes the way I would like it to then what the scales say doesn't matter as much!

  3. I'm trying to give up sweets. It's been going pretty well for two weeks. Fell off the wagon yesterday at a yogurt bar, but what can I say? No one is perfect.
