Week 3. Another good week

Yes another good week, a pound off and if you check the picture from last week you will see just how much a 1 pound is.
I managed to save lots of points last week for the meal out on Saturday for my Mums 70th birthday. I did really well with my main course choosing to have Lemon Sole with new potatoes and vegetables the potatoes and veg had no added butter so that was a bonus there was a small about of butter on the fish, but the whole main course was very low in points. I wouldn't normally have a pudding, but you no what its like when others start to order pudding you just have to join in. So that's what I did...Pear frangipane with clotted cream D'oh it was so lovely and I didn't go over my saved points so although I felt a little guilty for indulging I still fitted it in to my plan.

Till next week.

wk 2 Weigh In

Off I went on Monday for my wk 2 weigh in and another 2lbs off. I'm really pleased that's 5lbs in 2 weeks, Which means I have dropped down another stone category and have had to change from 21pts to 20pts a day but as long as its coming off I'm pleased.
The picture below is to illustrates what 1lb of fat looks like, its amazing isn't it?

equivalent to 1 lb of fat...

So as you can see things are still going well and I haven't encountered any problems with the WW diet. I'm busy trying to save points this week as I'm off to my Mums over the weekend and we are going out for a meal on Sat to celebrate her 70th birthday It is amazing what dropping a point off your daily total does, it seems harder to save point this week when I need to then last week.
As part of my job I have been able to organise taking two students to the local gym over the lunch hour I'm able to take them every Tuesday. I know more then once a week would be better but once is better then not at all. I only like doing the treadmill so did 30mins of walking which gained me two spare points and made me feel good. Exercise is my big down fall rather then the eating I do so little so think my metabolism never gets going.
I am also making sure a have a breakfast everyday which is something a wouldn't normally do, but I'm aware this help to get your body going.
That's it for this week.

Joining Weight Watches and wk 1 weigh in.

I have gone and signed up for Weight Watches. I real feel I need to get my weight in check and its not a New Year thing my feeling to loose weight just happened to coincide with the whole New Year resolution thing (of which I never make). I have done WW before about 10yrs and did very well. So on the 5th of Jan off I waddled to my local meeting and started my life changing journey.

Wk 1

3 ponds off Yerrrrrrr Yep on my first weigh in I have lost 3 pounds and all is going well I have no problems with the diet and it is fitting in with my daily life well.

So watch this space to follow the journey of the ever decreasing me :)
