So further to my question last week about causes of a gain you may recall that I had a blip last week and despite not going too far off plan I gained 1.5lb. After everyone's feedback I decided to knuckle down and go back into Weightwatchers kickstart program. This is a points allowance of 26 per day. I also upped my exercise, I've been following C25K so continued to work on that, I'm halfway through W2 at present and then on the "rest days" in between I was swimming doing 20 lengths of my gym's pool and I ventured outside to run in the park yesterday so only had 1 day off in the week but still did a fair amount of walking.
Went to weigh in today and thankfully it paid off and I lost 4lb this week. This has also allowed me to achieve my first goal of a 5% weightloss. I'm going to try to maintain the exercise this week but may allow myself to go up to my daily allowance, though having seen the result I might try one more week of kickstart to try to get to that 1st stone which is 1.5lb away.
Hope that everyone else is still riding the bus!
