Week 10. Back in the game πŸ˜€

Hola all 😬

Well after a week back on track i am delighted to have lost 8lb this week and the 3 inches I'd put on my waist last week have also been banished. Thank the universe! It was a lot of bloat and water no doubt from my disastrous previous week but I'm glad ive shifted the majority of it πŸ˜€

I have stuck to diet 100% this week but haven't done my usual 6 workouts (did about 4) due to the heat. It seriously drains my energy completely. I'm glad this hasn't affected my loss. Most of my exercise this week has been walking and I also tried out that 7 min workout app. My legs ached for days after so that was impressive!

I have a night away planned this weekend which is an absolute rarity for me. It's been planned since just before I started my diet so it's been a great incentive. I had hoped to be in the 12's by the time it came around and I'm happy I've reached that goal. If I can maintain by next Monday, I'll be happy but I'm not going to beat myself up over anything this weekend. I will enjoy myself completely guilt free and deal with anything the scales have to say next week πŸ˜‚

I've also started couch to 5k this morning. I am definately not a runner in the slightest so this is a massive challenge for me but I absolutely loved my run in the park this morning. I shocked myself! πŸ˜‚

Onwards and downwards you lovely people πŸ’ͺ🏽

  • Hi notsotiny




  • Thanks gman1961

    I've got a bit of a way left to go. I'm only 5'2 so I'm still a bit round. It's going in the right direction πŸ˜€

  • Hi notsotiny

    It certainly is.

  • Hi NotSoTiny,

    You probably do need to change your name, it is no longer apt!!! :-)

    Good luck with starting the C25K - it's good fun.

    Congratulations on your progress, you're doing really well.

    Have another great week.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Thanks again Zest

    The support of you all has really helped 😘

  • Well done NotSoTiny 😊 Your post has really cheered me up as I am also battling a gain following a busy, fun but stressful week with visitors πŸ˜• I'm back on track and hope to follow your example and lose the weight I've gained 😊

    Also very well done on the running! Exercise becomes addictive and is a real boost isn't it? πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŸπŸš΄πŸ½πŸŠπŸΌβ€οΈπŸ˜Š

  • Thanks Anna61

    I'm glad I've learnt that I can have a bump in the road and it won't completely derail me. We are all in this together. We can do it!

    That run this morning really gave me a boost. I was so proud of myself πŸ˜‚

  • Rightly so!! That's a great achievement πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŸπŸ˜Š

    I can't run due to arthritis but have worked really hard at my walking following an operation last year, and recently got an exercise bike 😊 If I don't manage one or the other (sometimes both) I get so grumpy!! People who have known me for years are as surprised as me!! Lol 😊

    Keep on Running πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ€πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŸπŸ˜Š

  • Walking does amazing things though. I find my weight loss is better through walking than any other exercise I do. That surprised me. Next run is Wednesday morning. I'm looking forward to it πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸƒπŸ½

  • Onwards and downwards 😊

  • I am so jealous of you that you stayed in the 12's! Well done! You are a star! I have been saying that I am desperate to get into the 10 was supposed to be April and now I pushed it off for this Friday but unfortunately it doesn't look like it as I am now 11.6! You deserve a gold medal! I must learn from you to stick to your plan!

  • Thank you bakersdozen

    I've really gotta be rigid with my 1200 a day calories for anything to come off. When I'm in the zone, it works but it's hard to stay in the zone for a long time. I was gutted with how much of a gain I had last week so a week fully back on track was definitely needed. This dieting malarkey isn't easy so don't be too hard on yourself if it takes a bit longer than you planned. It'll come off soon enough. πŸ’ͺ🏽

  • Yes that is exactly my point that you don't eat the wrong stuff. I am just fed up as there is a reason why I keep eating all these sweets. i guess I will find out on Thursday with my Therapist.
