So this week has ended in a disappointing amount of weight loss. Although it’s still a loss it still hurts a bit when you spend all week being strict. I am still happy with how far I’ve come over the last 11 weeks though and aim to bounce back and keep at it.


Starting weight: 238lbs
Loss this week: 0.5lbs
Current weight: 210.5lbs

Total loss: 27.5lbs
Target weight: 175lbs
Weight left to lose: 35.5lbs

This Weekend

There are many reasons why my efforts might not be reflected on the scales this week but it’s most likely due to being overly relaxed on the weekend. This weekend was another busy one, it was my mother inlaw’s birthday and we spent the day out. We didn’t have time for a healthy lunch that day so settled for cheesy wraps and a pack of crisps. We also had ice cream out and a Chinese in the evening.

If this wasn’t bad enough we didn’t get out the house to do our shopping until late Sunday morning and didn’t get home until way past lunchtime so got a quick cook pizza. I skipped tea that night as I felt I shouldn’t eat anymore.

This Week

After my disappointing weekend, I was very strict with myself all week hoping to undo any damage I’d done. I haven’t had any slip-ups during the week which I’m happy about, it can be so easy for me to fall back to my old habits after having a bad few days but I am so determined to change. Not only what I look like but how I think about food.

With the busy weekend, we didn’t have time to pick any new meals to add to the list. My favourite meal this week is a change to my lunchtime salad. It’s quite refreshing to have a bit of a change every now and again to get out of the cycle. My favourite meal of the week is my tuna salad. It has more taste to it than the chicken salad and goes down well, especially with a bit of cheese on top.

Tuna salad is a less disappointing meal

Next Week

I’m a little worried about this weekend as I’m going to a food festival tomorrow. We go every year and it’s full of freshly cooked cakes, pastries and burgers. There may be healthy options there but I have never looked out fo them before. I just hope I can be better than I was last weekend.

Next week is also progress picture time. I can’t wait to see the difference again, this one should be a big change from the last picture as I’m noticing the differences in the mirror now.

Next week I’ll be strict with myself again and get back on track again. I still haven’t found a treadmill I like in my price range which is also disappointing but will look again next week.
