Oh Poop....better than nothing though :)

I weighed in on a Saturday and started on a Sunday - so really I have cut myself short a day - but in the grand scheme of thing I am not sure I'd loose 5llbs today like I'd want too!

Still week one done - 1lb lost and .5" from my chest measurement

So not awful, but of course nowhere near what I was after (double or triple that would have been nice) BUT if after 12 weeks I have lost 12llbs and 6"inches total then that'll be a nice feeling.

I've had a couple of unexpected events this week and planning went a bit wobbly but stayed within my calorie limit, even have my husband doing HIIT training with me twice a week so he can really tell how much physical effort I am putting in.

Hopefully, next week I will get what I feel a more justified loss - but if not - I'll keep on going.

Have a good weekend ladies and gentlemen, enjoy a little of everything and a lot of the stuff we know we should do/have more off!!!

Definately better than nothing! Well done!


Hi forthe100thtime. Your weight can fluctuate so much between day to day so you may well lose a bit more by tomorrow (although I guess 5lbs is pushing it!) Well done for losing a pound anyway. Good to hear you stayed within your calorie amount and got some exercise in. I am sure you will continue you lose at a steady rate and see greater losses soon. Keep at it :)


Very well done.I think now we are eating healthier it's about been healthy inside too ie Chloesteral levels etc.Very well done

Great to have lost one, going in the right direction! Well done.

The result of on the scales normally lags one week after the activity for me. So when I have a really good week for food and exercise I don't see the scales go down til the following week. You may well be the same.

Keep going! 😊

My weight varies A LOT and my losses can be 1/2 lb, 1 lb, then 3 all at once etc . . . Just think long term  😊 I plot monthly trends 😊 Good luck!
