After last weeks huge loss this week feels like it’s very slow going. There have been quite a few differences from this week to last, so I can see what needs to change to get me back into it. For the most part, this week has gone to plan and working well.


Starting weight: 238lbs
Loss this week: 0.5lbs
Current weight: 195lbs

Total loss: 43lbs
Target weight: 175lbs
Weight left to lose: 20lbs

This Weekend

Another busy weekend this week, sorting the kitchen and decorating ready for the new one to arrive. As well as having family over and going out for the afternoon. My diet suffered quite a bit as I was busy all day Saturday and only stopped for quick bits to eat.

Sunday wasn’t much better as we had cake while out and not the healthiest lunch of cheese and ham rolls and crisps.

This Week

Because of the weekend, I stayed strict all week and it paid off in me losing instead of gaining.

My diet has been very slow going the last few months and barely lost anything compared to the previous three months. Christmas was a big factor in this. I’ve now lost all my Christmas weight and a little bit more so its back to business and getting this weight off faster.

I need to look back at what was working for me before and get back to it. I have a few tips I can use to get back to it, one being drinking more water again.

I’m still keeping up with my abs and core challenge and will be coming to the end next week. I’m not sure what to do next, so I’ll be looking to maybe do another 30-day challenge.

I haven’t been on the air bike this week as I’ve been ill again and anything that gets me breathing heavier is making me cough so didn’t think that would be a good idea.

Next Week

Next week I will be stricter with myself on the weekend to ensure I lose more weight next week. I also need to get back on my bike and look for a new exercise challenge.

I’ve also been given an amazing opportunity to work in web development, which has always been a big interest of mine. I have a lot to learn and will be spending most of my time training. I’m hoping this will keep me distracted from cravings and slipping off-plan.
