Please help me to stay motivated to keep the numbers dropping!
Though it's quite a way away I've embarked on the mass task of loosing my excess weight before my wedding. Last Monday morning was a rather disappointing revelation. appaulingly I weighed in at a grand total of 16stone2pounds, at a 22 year old 5ft11 in clothing size 14 I found this quite surprising and wanted to tackle it head on.
Ideally I would like to get down to 10 stone. This would put me within a healthy bmi range without looking too skeletal/thin I hope! But my initial goal is to reach 12 stone and readdress from there and potentially adjust my end goal.
So week one has passed in a blur of busy work days and a massive diet change. While I didn't eat too terribly with meals beforehand and rarely drink sweets and chocolate weremy biggest vice. so I banned my fiancé from bringing them in the door and avoided takeaways and convenience food-opting for a slimfast shake mid morning and then a light healthy dinner around 5.30/6. With a graze box snack if peckish in the evening. After a month or so I am going to introduce another light meal at lunchtime as to not mess my metabolism up too much and will fluctuate my intake across the week to keep my weight loss at its optimum.
the only things I deviated last week were a meal out on Saturday late afternoon for my grandpas Birthday where I opted for a flatbread tostada and a few chips and yesterday I did still have my roast dinner-though used light 1 cal sprays for my roasting and sacrificed my Yorkshire puddings and crackling!
The hard work paid off though as this morning I weighed in at 15stone7! A whole 9lb less if my maths is correct. It's still a long way to go but I'm hoping that by broadcasting my progress to you lovely ladies I don't resort back to my bad diet before.
later on down the line I plan to incorporate insanity into my regime however we currently have a very full garage and that's the only space I have large enough to do it!!
