Week 29

Hi everyone, I have really great news today :-) I have lost 3 lbs :-) and I am delighted with this number :-) and lost 25.42 % total body weight.

Smiles all round. I have really put myself out there this week with the exercise and it has paid off, including my other half who also lost 3 lbs this week due to working out with me and me pushing him.

This week I have learned how to skateboard and I am better than the kids at this LOL

I have found a cycle track off road covering almost 12 k which I have cycled twice this week

I have run for 27:46 mins straight for the first time in my life completing my first ever 5 k without having to walk at any point

I also completed my first 2000 m on the rowing machine without stopping..

and then last night to top it all off I wanted to push myself even further and completed 3000 m without stopping and went onto do 5000 m in total.

This week has been a week of great achievements for me and a week I can say I am really proud of all I have done. I have given it my best and achieved this great result today and it has been worth every bit of sweat and hard work.

I set out to lose 2 lbs this week and lost 3 lbs bringing my total weight lost to 61 lbs :-) I am now 12 st 11 lbs and I have broken free of the 13's at long last.

Challenge completed and achieved :-) I'm so very proud today everyone :-)

Good luck to everyone with your goals this week and the coming week...together we can do this.

  • Well done you!! Very positive post, just what I needed to read this morning!!

  • Thank you so much nanashon :-)

  • Brilliant well done xx I too broke free of the 13 at last 12 stone 13 onwards and downwards lol xx ran 10k this week omg couldn't run for a bus before this. You sound so happy keep up the amazing good work and enjoy your journey x well done to other half too 😁

  • Aww thank you dawncoates34 :-) and well done to you breaking free of the 13's, getting down to 12 st 13 and for running a 10 k that's just brilliant hun. Before this if I would run for a bus I would have to sit in my seat and pretend like it didn't just kill me to do that LOL so I know exactly what your talking about :-)

    Big cheer to us, woop woop

  • Hi Trafford,

    Your post is incredibly inspiring - all those amazing achievements. I am particularly impressed with your 5k time - 27.46 mins is excellent. Amazing that you can skateboard better than the kids.

    Congratulations for getting into the 12's, that's also my goal, but I haven't got there yet. Losing 3 pounds this week is great - and particularly as your other half also lost the same amount of weight - shows you're inspiring each other.

    Cheering you on for another fantastic week ahead.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thank you very, very much Lowcal :-)

    It's been a week of reflection on my journey so far and asking myself what am I really capable of and pushing to reach those goals I so wanted to achieve and I have done them all in one week. I am incredibly proud.

    I am not a runner and don't find any enjoyment from it but I wanted to see if I could run the whole 5 k as my fitness is there.. and I did it. My time of 27:46 goes to show that I can do anything I put my mind to and I was thinking of my mum and her struggles which got me through. If she can fight I can too :-) as far as skateboarding goes the kids are really impressed and I never would have thought that I would be on a skateboard in the park ever LOL, but I am doing it and love it.

    This journey is all about challenging ourselves and I am up for trying most things and will continue to explore new adventures. It's been such a great week and the OH is really happy with his weight loss this week to so I am going to continue to spur him on for next week.

    Lowcal I thank you as always for your continued support and very lovely reply and I hope you reach your goal of getting into the 12's very soon.

    Best of luck for Monday hun :-)

  • Well done . Hope I can do the same ..I'm currently 12 stone 9 just started dieting on Monday. .I have 3 girls under 3 so don't get a minute. . Find it impossible to do exercise. . So just watching what I'm eating..are u in weight watchers or anything ?

  • Thank you kaylin

    I definitely would not choose to do weight watchers, sw or any other because I believe that I can do this on my own and confident in my own abilities and cooking methods to achieve great things. Following a book or counting points is not for me.

    I have made some simple changes to the way I cook and took control and this is what has seen me through as well as everyone on this forum which has given me such great support and motivation.

    With 3 little ones under the age of 3 it must be so hard to find that time to work out and find that time just for you. I have 4 children and never found time either and it was after having each child I gained the weight. Now I do have time to focus on me, now they are older the youngest being 8 now. I go park skateboard now play football, basket ball jog and I got my own roller skates and go skating with them. I like the fact that now I am active I can get involved with them a lot more than I ever did and it feels great.

    Oh and I bought a treadmill which I can use when I can't get out of the house and it was well worth investing in :-)

    I hope you do find what works for you and your family as some of it can be done together.

    Good luck on your journey hun :-)
