Collar bones…

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate the fact I can actually see a little bit of collar bone again!

Look closely… They are there I can feel them!

This may be the weirdest post you have ever read but collar bones are my fave thing πŸ’

Week 25…

The week after my birthday and the week before Christmas and guess what I have pulled out the bag… a 5 pound loss!

Very much welcomed and needed just before the festive period, that makes my loss for December a total of 6lbs so far, so I am going to aim for a least 1lb next week so get half a stone off and a total of 2 stone altogether then hopefullyΒ maintain it over Christmas and new year.

I cannot believe I am 25 weeks into this healthiness stuff and it’s nearly 2015, this year has well and truly flown by!

Happy Birthday to me…

for last Monday!

This week, week 24 the inevitable happened I have had a little gain of 2 pounds. I am pretty happy with this as with it being my birthday I have been for a couple of meals (buffet meals) and the Christmas markets so yeah a 2lb gain isn’t all that bad. I have a full week back at work next week then I am off again for Christmas. The plan is to get the 2lb back off for next week and maintain over the Christmas period; as long as I come out the other side of December pretty much the same I was on the last day of October I will be happy.

I am back in the gym and loving it! I have a new gym buddy and she is fab even though she is a size 6 and I feel like a t**t next to her she is lovely and because she isn’t someone I have known for years I feel as though I can’t just say ‘not feeling it tonight’ which is good because I go no matter how I am feeling now! BUT and its a big BUT, no not my butt! My gym closes for a month as of tomorrow for a refurb, I am gutted especially as when I amΒ off over Christmas I will have a lot more time to go! So I am trying to devise a plan of action in that respect.

Also it is nearly time for a measurement update so I will crack on with that this weekend!

This list thing is starting to get a bit long now…

Week 23…

wow 23 weeks… this wee I have lost, yes LOST! not maintained! 3 pounds; ecstatic with that. I know people use December as an excuse to practically eat as much as they can and I have use this approach in the past but with it being my birthday in 5 sleeps (presents welcome :P) I am not expecting much from this month so to start on a 3lb loss is great news for me. I am goingΒ to make a conscious effort to try not to gain anything but if I do I am not going to get too upset about it.

Keeping up the trend…

So its week 21 of my the new weight loss journey, 21 weeks wow – never thought I would stick it out (as such) this long. I say as such because no I haven’t been perfect but I have been aware more than ever. So Week 21 and its a 1 pound loss; meaning 21 pounds in total in 21 weeks… Keeping the trend going aren’t I. Over the mood with a loss as I genuinely think I may of screamed if it was a maintain again and as for gaining I cant begin to imagine… but its not so do not fear!

I am officially back in the gym 3 times in 4 days and again tonight, I am having thurs and fri off but back to it sat and sun morning!

Queen of Maintaining

Week 20 weigh in and guess who maintained… ME! I feel as though if I had a tenner for every time I maintained I could buy myself a gastric band! So yeah it is week 20 and I have lost a total of 20lbs; you don’t have to be a maths genius to work out that averages out at 1lb per week since I started and I can only think to myself this isn’t good enough. Don’t get me wrong I know 20lb is good and a substantial amount of weight to lose but I’m becoming impatient and I know I shouldn’t because I am not going to become slim over night. I suppose in conclusion I just have to persevere and try harder.

PS TODAY IS MY WORD PRESS ANNIVERSARY! 1 YEAR TODAY! thank you everyone who follows me and comments and supports me no matter what.

Apologies for not posting any November goals/measurements but my main goal is to get rid of this dreaded virus, I feel slightly better today so I may do my measurements tonight.

Oh and happy bonfire night people! Stay safe but enjoy!
