Weight Loss Wednesday #12

Just a quick post today but am delighted to record a 2 1/2 pound loss - yipee!!  I have gone from the stone marker to ___ 11 1/2 so onwards and downwards towards the next stone loss of the year.

I did SO much exercise during my Nordic walking instructor course over the weekend

that in fact when I weighed myself on the Monday I had lost 3 1/2 pounds as well as an inch off my midriff!! The pound increase is, I am sure, due to my consumption of a fish and chip supper, two Cadbury creme eggs and a huge bread roll in the intervening days away at my parents!  However, now that I am a fully qualified instructor - yes I passed the course - I am hoping that I will be exercising at a higher intensity and for longer in the coming weeks and months and this will play a significant role in my weight loss and healthier me goal :)

  2. Woohoo go you - I'm so proud of you passing your course ! I'm looking forward to the holidays here so I can take care of myself instead of everyone else for a change ! *phew*

  3. Well done on your weight loss and passing your course, bet you're thrilled! Have a great Easter!

  4. Hooray for you! My husband and I have been counting calories, which is the method that works best for me. I need to up my exercise now! Thanks for sharing!
    Laughter and Consistency

  5. You've done really well. My husband and I are both trying to cut back on chocolate (just indulging at weekends and in moderation even then), though I've been a little more lax this weekend.

    I've pretty much successfully given up fizzy drinks as well. I've not stepped on a scale recently so I'm not sure how I'm getting on, hopefully as well as you!

  6. Awww well done on passing the course chick! You have been totally motivated by it and it has paid off! Fantastic news on the loss, you are doing so well - don't worry about the fish and chip dinner... no calories! Hope you are having a lovely week and hope to see you with #WeightLossWednesday again soon! Sim xx
