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.


  1. def agree with you better off than on!

  2. Well done!
    It was my first week on ww this week and 3 lbs off which is not bad!
