Weight Update: Week 7
I am really enjoying my Weight Watchers at the moment. 7 weeks in, and I am still going strong. I feel very happy and really in the moment. I have been cooking a lot more meals, and I am trying my best to count every thing I eat. I have my little blips, though, and I am starting to see where I have gone wrong in the past. I have bad days, though, not bad I guess but just more foody than others.
So, I have now lost 11lbs. I am down into a new stone bracket, and that feels fab. I had a bit of a disappointing weigh-in today as I stayed the same this week, after I thought I did well. I can only think that I have nibbled a little too much and not counted this, as sometimes I do pick a little. I am very pleased I haven’t put any on though, in 7 weeks. I sometimes think that when I go down a stone bracket, it’s as if my body needs some time to adjust!
I also need one thing I need to do: Get off my arse and excercise. I need to move around more. I have moved jobs recently and I am definitely not as active. I would like to start running, or jogging, or something (free) to do. I quite like swimming as well. I just need to plan a time to go, and make time to get active. I’m pretty sure this is a big reason for staying the same this week.
I’m looking up Simple Start, and think I’ll give that a go next week, for a week. I was going to try this week, but I know I will have a few lunches or meals out this bank holiday weekend and I can manage this better with the propoints.
Body wise, I am losing centimetres! I have lost 3 centimetres from my hips, 8 from
my bust, and 5 from my thighs. I can feel my clothes are looser, and I can see my face looks a bit thinner in the mirror. I have a long way to go but this is a good motivator to me.
I’ve made some lovely healthy meals this week, so glad I am back to cooking from scratch, a few weeks ago I had a bit of a bad week where most of the meals were out of packets, and I can say I really did not feel good at all. We’ve had:
Tofu stir fry with noodles (12pp)
Veggie curry with noodles (10pp)
spicy Roasted vegetable soup (2pp a portion)
lentil and red pepper chilli (5pp a portion)
veggie fajitas (including 2 tortilla wraps, cheese, refried beans, sour cream) (15pp)
Fab Ice Lolly – 2 propoints
Freddo – 3pp
Mikado – 1pp for 4 sticks
Mini Twister Ice Lolly – 1pp (bargain!)
Percy Pigs (1pp each)
I really find having a little treat in the evening helps, stops me feeling deprived and once I have had it, I don’t want to eat anything else! Having a 1pp treat in the freezer I think is a great way to ward off any thoughts of sabotaging yourself – with 1pp you feel you have had something but it hasn’t done that much damage!
I am still very motivated, and although it is disappointing I stayed the same this week, I know that next week I can get a good loss. I know what I need to do, so I am going to do it!
If you have any hints and tips, or have started on Simple Start, I’d love to know!
