Friday weigh in πŸ˜ƒ

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all ok and getting through January!!

Weigh in today and I have lost 1 and 1/2 Ib πŸ˜ƒ I've worked really hard this week I've tweeked how I eat and upped my exercise and so pleased! I've taken loads of inspiration from all the daily posts and a timely post from littlebird re underactive thyroid helped immensely so thank you πŸ’

I am so enjoying the 80 day challange and it has spurred me on to be more active, I'm even thinking of going back to Zumba and I've not managed that since my stroke so watch this space !! πŸ’ƒπŸ»

I'm off to Edinburgh later today with my sister for the weekend so I am pledging at leat 5kms for Saturday and Sunday, even if it's walking round the shops !! πŸ˜ƒ

Have a lovely weekend everyone and a great week.

  • Hi Flossie,

    Wow, what a lovely inspiring post - Congratulations on losing 1.5 pounds this week, that is really great!!! :-)

    Great to hear you're enjoying being more active - and the Around the World in 80 Day Challenge is really motivating - I love it too.

    I hope you have a wonderful time in Edinburgh, and enjoy all that shopping and walking the kms around and about - should be really good! Have a wonderful weekend, and look forward to catching up with you when you get back.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thanks Lowcal,

    Sorry a bit late in replying, had a good time at the weekend but came back with a chest infection so laid low for a few days but on the mend πŸ˜ƒ

    Hope you are having a nice week.


  • Hi Flossie,

    Great that you enjoyed the weekend, but sorry to hear you've got a chest infection - glad you're on the mend from that, and hope you'll be fighting fit again very soon.

    Yes, my week is good so far thanks. I have been back to the gym, which was good!

    Have a great week yourself.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Woo hoo, excellent job! :-D You are sounding so positive, I'm really delighted for you that you are feeling what I would call brave enough (because I'm a tad cowardly when it comes to testing my exercise boundaries lol) to consider Zumba again. It's lovely to feel the happiness emanating from your post, I have a wee smile on my face on your behalf!

    Enjoy your weekend trip, you've earned it with your hard work this week! :-)

  • Thanks WW,

    I'm plodding on and feeling really enthused, I used to love Zumba and salsa before my stroke but still struggle a bit with coordination so I've decided just to go for it!! I'll stay at the back and do my own thing lol


  • Well done πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Well done 1 1/2 ib enjoy your time in edinburgh

  • Thanks Rosie,

    Hope it's all good your endπŸ˜ƒ


  • Yaaaay, Flossie! That 1.5lbs was hard earned and well deserved! I'm thrilled for you! :)

    You would so love being back at zumba, so go for it and show 'em how it's done! :)

    It wouldn't surprise me if you exceeded your pledge of 5k's/day at the weekend, because those little legs of yours don't know how to stay still :)

    I hope you and your sister have a fabulous time in Edinburgh and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back :)

  • Thanks moreless,

    We had a really nice time, a bit of shopping, sightseeing and a nice lunch !! Best of all stayed on track !!πŸ˜ƒ


  • Fantastic! You see, I told you you were super woman :)

  • That's amazing Flossie - you must have been so focused this week. Great to see these larger losses are still possible despite thyroid problems. Hope your happiness spurs you on for another excellent week, and have a great weekend :)

  • Thanks Ruth,

    Did work hard but not expecting great loss every week, I'm happy to take it as it comes because I know however long it takes this last stone will go !!!


  • Hi flossie and very well done on losing 1 1/2 pounds this week :-) Sorry for the late reply I had a family emergency on Friday as my son ended up in hospital, but he is on the mend now :-)

    It sounds like you are really in the zone and are doing great and it's brilliant that you have found something that has worked for you and given you the results you wanted this week and long may it continue :-)

    Zumba sounds like a great idea, it's fun and really gets the body moving and it would be nice to hear that you have made it back to classes after having your stroke and I'm sure that there will be lot's of people welcoming you back. I look forward to reading about that in the near future :-)

    Hope your enjoying your time in Edinburgh with your sister, enjoying the sites and doing lot's of walking keeping the km's going whilst having a nice break sounds like a plan to me :-)

    Have a lovely Sunday floss and another great week ahead :-)

  • Hi Traff,

    Hope your son is feeling better and you are over the shock of it πŸ˜ƒ

    I'm feeling really positive and I know no matter how long this takes I will get to where I want to be πŸ˜ƒ

    We had a really nice weekend but I returned with a chest infection so been a bit off !!

    Hope you are having a nice week, bet you are counting down to your big day ? Hope all your plans are coming together and it's not too stressfulπŸ˜ƒ


  • Oh dear floss, I hope your chest gets better soon hun :-) my son is doing much better thank you and yes we are counting down the days now and it's going really fast now.

    I'm glad to hear you are feeling positive and are not putting a time frame on your weight loss goals because you know and I know that you will get to where you want to be eventually and it's only January :-)

    Glad to hear you had a really nice weekend with your sister :-)

    Traff x
