I have made changes to my diet this week after looking into Slimming World a lot closer than I have before. Hopefully, this should help me lose weight faster. Improving my diet and continuing my exercise challenges should help me to reach my goal a lot sooner.
Starting weight: 238lbs
Loss this week: 1.5lbs
Current weight: 201.5lbs
Total loss: 36.5lbs
Target weight: 175lbs
Weight left to lose: 26.5lbs
It was the first weekend that I had to do my fitness challenge. I managed to do them in the morning both days before any plans so wasn’t an issue. My diet wasn’t too bad apart from a few treats on Sunday when we went out with my parents.
I tried to be a bit stricter with myself as I knew we were going out during the week and didn’t want to ruin my work.
I carried on being strict throughout the week and had an extra banana a day that I’d forgotten to have for a few weeks. I have also been looking at Slimming World a lot closer this week as my diet is losely based on it and I want to make sure I was doing everything I should.
So I took a look at how the diet works and it turns out I’m actually not eating enough dairy. It used to be that you could have 1 portion a day but as of 2019, you can now have 2 to boost your calcium intake. I also found out bananas aren’t as effective as other fruits on the diet. So I’ll be swapping one for an apple from now on.
The Abs and Core fitness challenge has started to get harder. As of this morning, I’ve done 12 days. I hurt my back a few days ago and thought I’d have to miss a day but it’s been fine so far.
As I knew we were going out Thursday and going for a meal, I weighed a day early. I wanted to get a true representation of my week rather than ruin my weigh-in by the food I had the night before. Is that cheating? I’m not sure.
Next week I’ll be making the new changes to my diet and seeing if they’ve any impact on my weight loss. Hopefully.I’ll also be continuing with my exercise, I’ve been enjoying it still but it’s getting harder as I go on.
Apart from that, as far as I can remember we have no other plans. This will give me time to focus on what I need to do.
