Wednesday Weight Loss #15

Well here I am again sharing how my week went and to be honest I did not really keep to those promises I made this time last week. Which is why standing on the scales I should not be surprised that although there has been a weight loss and I return to ___ 13 and a 1/4 I did not make as much of a difference as I could have.

I have exercised a whole heap over these past seven days as my Nordic walking classes are now running at three a week, I still do my Walking for Health group on a Monday morning and I go to yoga on a Friday plus this weekend I spent doing some serious DIY in the garden lumping heavy weights of wood and concrete so if I had got my food intake under control then the weight loss should have been amazing!!!

No-one else to blame except myself and the choices I am making and yesterday I received news that I will be taking part in a video for Sport England in three weeks time!!  Yes me in a Sports video!!!!!

Do I want to look like this and weigh this much? NO!

Do I think if I tried hard I could lose half a stone in three weeks - that's 2-3 pounds a week?  YES!

So how will I achieve success?

I have to plan my meals AHEAD - not just open the fridge door when I am hungry!

I will use a smaller dinner plate and thereby eat a smaller quantity. This has been suggested in the news this week as once again the debate rages about whether it is fat or carbohydrates which are causing British obesity problems.

I will go back to recording my pints of water - more water less feelings of hunger and much better hydration.

If you want a Weightloss Water Wristband to record your water simply click on the pic below to download - print out - cut out and sellotape around your wrist and then colour in as you down those glasses of water throughout the day!!

I will go back to my jogging regime - I have a 5k charity race booked in for the end of June.

I will do 20 mins each day of specific toning exercises for waist, upper arms and chest - measuring these areas and seeing if I can make reductions to them as successfully as  I've been with my thighs and legs :)

I can do it, I WILL do it!!

Linking up with Sim over at:

where she is tackling lack of motivation and how to get this back :)

Please feel free to leave a comment about what's happening with you and your health/diet/lifestyle changes at the moment or maybe share any weight loss tips or healthy recipes - it all helps :)


  1. Good luck!! I'm sure you'll do great, you sound motivated and that's a great start. :)

    1. Thanks Morgan - I certainly want to attain the goals I've set for myself but I often find "finding time" is a problem - so I need to sort that out too!!

  2. Good luck. I cut back on portions and junk food. So far so good

    1. Well done - especially as I know you've been unable to exercise due to your poorly toe!

  3. I find meal planning definitely helps me stay on track

    1. I think that's where I have been going wrong recently so hopefully I'll have a better week and be in more control!!

  4. Oh wow!!! That is absolutely amazing and I am so chuffed for you that you be in the video! Will keep my eye open! Meal planning, portion control... they do work but it sounds as if you have been crazy busy recently! Make sure you are getting time for you too! I still need to check out this Nordic walking! Thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday and hope you can join in this week - super excited to see the video when it's live! Sim xx
