weeks 7 & 8

Yet another good two week and the great news is I'm just 1 .5 lbs off my first stone now. I lost a 1lbs on wk 7 and 1.5lbs this week.
I don't know about you but I get so frustrated with people at the meeting who moan constantly at only loosing half or a lb, whats that all about surly they can see its better off then on and half lbs are like pennies over time they mount up. Dieting is not a quick fix you have to change the way you look at food and they way you eat it, we would all like to go to bed and wake up the next morning a few stone lighter, but hay that's not going to happen.

Also this week the realisation that a really need to be more active has sunk in. I really hate the thought of exercise and would love to just loose weight with out having to do any and I know I'm not the only one. I am now spending the day with a pedometer fastened to my waist band to count how many steps I am doing. At the moment I'm working on achieving 6000+ steps a day. I now make the effort (and it is) to walk the dogs for at least 1/2 an hour every evening. What I found really shocking was: on Wed I am based in college and don't really go out. When I got home I had only achieved 1313 step and normally that would be it for the day, but a good walk sorted that out.

So we see how I get on this coming Monday.

Weeks 4, 5 and 6

As you can see I'm a little behind with this blog, but all is still going well so here is a quick recap of the past two weeks.

Week 4

Lost another 1lb this week which took me to my first half stone yerrrrrrrr and don't I feel fab. Its so good getting to my first target. So I have proudly stuck my first silver seven on the front of my weight watchers file.

Week 5

Wow what a week after the thrill of last week and getting my first silver seven I thought it would be a few weeks till I hit another target and what happened?...I went and lost 3lbs this week, yes that's right 3lbs. I have now lost 5% of my body weight yipee. I'm now only 4lbs off my first stone.


Its still coming off another lb this week so I'm defiantly doing things right and I do seem to have a strong determination to get to my goal. I'm really happy with it coming off at a good steady pace and any loss is definitely better then going on.

I have started to have hot water and lemon which is really sorting out any water retention. As I'm not a big cold water drinker this is definitely the answer for me. I have also started to add ground cinnamon to it and to my porridge in a morning as this is meant to helps with your metabolism.

I hope you are all doing well I would love to hear about anything you have found that is helping with your weight loss.
