Happy, happy girlie!

Happy, happy girlie!

Yay! I weigh in on a Friday and pleased to report a 3.8lb loss this week! That goes some way to undoing the damage that was Christmas and a 2 week holiday in Tenerife at the start of December.

I have been losing weight since 2012 - not a straight forward weight loss journey as life and life events sometimes get in the way. In October 2016 I started to follow the 8 week Blood Sugar Diet, and that seemed to really suit me, as I managed to lose 13lbs in 7 weeks. Thank goodness for that loss, otherwise I'd have been about 2 stone heavier after Christmas, instead of 11lbs!

The Blood Sugar won't be for everyone as you limit calories to 800 a day for 8 weeks, and cut out bread, grains (anything with wheatflour), potatoes, rice and pasta. However, I feel really good on it, and believe me when I say I have tried all sorts of ways to get rid of my weight over my lifetime (I am now 54!)

So here's to a happy weight loss this week (whatever day you weigh in) and hope that you are all as happy as I when you step off the scales!

Well done you! I have only started yesterday but hopefully this time next week I can report success!

Here's wishing you plenty of strength and determination.

Remember, even a small loss is a step in the right direction. My weight loss worked out at an average of only half a pound a week - although sometimes more and other times I gained! I am afraid that I put on at least half a stone when I am on holiday, as I am less strict with myself. I don't go crazy, but at home I weigh and measure and log all of my food (yes, even after 4.5 years - I still have to!) I am also less active on holiday as at home I do housework, etc. On holiday someone else brings the food and washes up :-) I like to lay in the sun and relax!!! Haa haa

Yes I love to relax, eat and drink, but you are right the trick is to keep track at other times. You are an inspiration!

Well done, you can really see the difference and you look well so whatever you are doing it is obviously suiting you!

Thank you. Yes, I feel like a different person - physically and emotionally. Mind you, I got a lovely new husband some time in the middle - he's very supportive of my weight loss and efforts to exercise - even though he's not got a weight issue!
