Week 20 weigh-in

So last week I gave myself the week off. I felt a bit miffed about somehow putting on 4lb eating a Chinese take-away and some sweets on father's day. The eventual gain last week 1lb which was pretty good bearing in mind I ate out 2 or 3 times. I didn't completely lose my way and remained mindful and kept up the walking.

So this week I was back on it like a car bonnet and the 1lb gain is off plus 4lb so my net loss over the last 2 weeks is 4lb - exactly on target :) phew!

So at week 20 I can report a total loss of 41lb (only 1lb off 3 stones) and a few lbs over 20% of what I want to lose, so another target hit this week.

Hope everyone else is having a good week :)

Good to hear that the Chinese didn't do lasting damage. And so impressed that you've lost (almost) 3 stone! You sound completely on top of it. Stay positive and determined and lots of luck :)

You have done so well getting back to it sueper. I'm slacking off so must be more mindful. Wish I could go out for walks but my knee is still stopping me. :(

An odd blow out won't do any lasting harm. I had a big meal out this week including chips and the next day I had put on 2 1/2 lbs. this cannot be all fat in such a short time. I was really strict after this and the day after the 2 1/2 lbs had gone and even a further 1/2 lb lost. I changed how I eat a year ago and over 6 1/2 stone lost. During that time have had the odd treats plus 2 holidays where I gained 1/2 stone each time. both times I lost this weight gain in a week. I think that a good blow out gives a kickstart to your metabolism and I always seem to lose weight easily for a few days after at least.

Main thing is to get straight back on it. just after deal with the self imposed guilt each time I have a treat or meal out even though I know I will soon lose it again.

Thanks Andy, I do agree with you, I seem to lose more if I ease off for a week. Maintaining an overall average loss of 2lb a week so it is working for me - so far.

Congratulations of your super loss - you must feel great :)

Yes will never go back to my old ways. I was lazy, sendentary and suffering with various aches and pains including sciatica. I now do a quite intense workout 4 times a week, I'm full of energy, walk a lot more and all aches and pains and fairly severe sciatica have gone. Plus I feel a lot better about myself. Downside is its cost me a fortune in clothes but I'll live with that.

Oh, I can't wait to spend a fortune on clothes :)

Well done for getting your life back on track I am a bit behind you but getting there.

That's amazing! Wow I've only just started on my 12 week plan but hearing the inspirational stories are great. (Especially how to overcome the hiccups on the way 😉)

Hope you can take a moment to enjoy your achievement.
