Sunday Weigh In 13


It's now been 13 weeks since starting my new healthy lifestyle I decided that each Sunday I will post up my progress, whether successful or not in the hope that it encourages me to stay positive and keep going.  Knowing that I will be sharing it all here will hopefully keep my willpower up!  In order for me to keep track and look back for ideas, I will be listing my food diary here as well (and who knows, it might inspire others to have a go too!)  It also gives me somewhere to put all the photos of the yummy food I love to take as it always looks so good!

This week I've been a bit more naughty than usual, mostly as a result of not being organised enough and then getting really hungry and having naughty things like a panini and pizza for lunch (I did enjoy them though!)  I've done more exercise again this week though so hopefully the results won't be too bad, I'm keeping my holiday in mind to keep spurring me on!  There has been a lot of eating out again this weekend too as my in-laws came to stay from England and we had a lovely time taking them to some of our favourite places.  We're often too busy to really show them around the area as they're usually here for a reason (weddings/parties/Christmas) so it was nice to take them up to Loch Lomond as they'd never been before and to some more of the local restaurants we like.

And the results this week:

Weight last week - 12 st 4 lbs
Weight this week - 12st 6.5 lbs
Loss/Gain this week - + 2.5 lbs

Total Loss = -11.5 lbs

I suspected I would have put on weight this week - far too much white bread and naughty treats like alcohol,  white bread, cheese and cakes/tarts.  I do believe in everything in moderation but went a bit too far in the wrong direction this week!  It shows how much of a difference it makes to be organised as well, I need to get back into my breakfast routine again and do more swimming to keep up the weight loss.  I've had some super healthy days and some very bad days which isn't the best way to do things, I need to balance it all out a bit better, like I was doing before!  (Obviously I will be forgetting about all of this when in Italy - far too much in love with food to waste that opportunity worrying about calories!  So I have to try to be extra good this week before I leave!)

You have done so well and made it so much more sustainable so hopefully it will go back to that this week and then you have a holiday. Hurrah!
