First weigh in

Hi All!

I am weighing myself today instead of Monday as I have two weddings this weekend! Going to skip next Monday's weigh in because of this then join in again the week after.

So I started the 12 week plan on Monday so wasn't expecting a big loss but I have gone from 10st 4.2lbs to 10st 1.6lbs - an overall loss of 2.6lbs! I am so happy right now :> Hoping to see a 9 next time I step on the scales!

I saw someone else do this and I thought it was a good idea to do add to each week to remind me of my weight loss journey:

Start: 10st 4.2lbs

1st Week: 10st 1.6lbs -2.6

Hi NoMoreJunk that's a great loss but it is often a bit more the first week, so don't be disappointed if you don't see a 9 on the next weigh in - although you should see it soon! Have a great time this weekend and good luck for week 2 :)

Thanks Ruth! I'm guessing a lot of the weight loss this week is water (especially after only 5 days!) so I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next weigh in! Have a great holiday!

Thanks, will do! It may just be water but this often means you lose an inch or so off your waist straightaway which is quite satisfying. Lots of luck :)

That's a really great accomplishment in your first week! I am sure that you will get to 9 stone whether it is next week or the week after. Your doing really great! xx

Hi NoMoreJunk,

Congratulations on that really great result in your first week - I hope you had an enjoyable week and that you found it ok. I hope you enjoy celebrating those 2 Weddings on the weekend.

Have a great week ahead.

Hi Lowcal,

Thank you! I have found the change okay this week, I have tried to be really organised and have a variety of healthy snacks in my office drawer and have started taking lunches to work. Added bonus is that I am saving money too as well as eating a more balanced diet!

First wedding down - so lovely :> I did drink more than I was going to let myself but hey they are only going to get married once but I was good with the buffet as I made sure I had a healthy snack before I went so I didn't over do it.

Next wedding is tonight - can't wait!

Have a great week!

Glad you enjoyed the first Wedding, and well done for coping with that buffet.

Have a lovely time at tonight's Wedding - hopefully the weather will be just right. Exciting!

Oh well done you, I started last Monday too and sm a similar weight 10st 3lb. I did a sneaky weigh in yesterday and had lost 1.5lb but will wait until Monday to see if it's the same! Enjoy your weddings. :)

Hi Tuppy,

That's fantastic news - I'm sure you will see good results on Monday! What's your target weight? I'm only 5ft 1.5" so I am aiming for 81/2 maybe less depending on what I look like. Be good to have a weightloss buddy :)

Hi NoMoreJunk,

I'm only 5ft so similar height too! I'm aiming for 9st at the moment but would love to get back to 8.6st which I was after having me third child but since then I've just not had the motivation. Yes definitely good to have a weight loss buddy with same weight to lose. Keep up the good work. :)
