Another week almost over, how has everyone got on?
Sarah - I have lost another 1lb this week but I have been feeling very demotivated at my last three losses, all a measly 1lb each week. Yes, yes I know a loss is a loss etc etc but when you are sticking to plan 100% and now do more exercise in a day than you used to in a week it gets disheartening. In fact this last week I have walked roughly 35 miles and still only 1lb :( I have decided that Slimming World online is just not working for me. On Thursday I took action and went along to my very first class. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be to be honest and I am excited to see what the next week weeks brings. I am still weighing in myself each Sunday for consistency but I will also get weighed every Thursday evening. My running total is now 12lbs, that first stone is almost in reach, I can nearly taste the success!!
Gemma - I lost another 1lb this week and it's been a pretty good week for me. I've had a bit of a cold so I've been hungry and wanting nice things so I have shared my bank of 49 points out between each day rather than blowing them all on the weekend like I usually do. I've had nights in with a cup of tea this weekend for me so there hasn't been any temptation. Hope to see another 1- 1.5 lb loss this week. Been very busy in the kitchen trying out lots of things from my Weight Watcher magazine which is keeping my diet interesting.
Charlene - I haven't been able to weight myself yet but I'm not sure if I'll lose any weight anyway. I've done quite well with eating healthily this week, but I haven't done much exercise. I'm going to restart the 30 Day Shred tomorrow and hope that life doesn't get in the way this time! Did anyone complete it last time we started it? I'd love to hear from you if you did!
Lucy - I'm writing this on Saturday morning because I won't get a chance tomorrow I don't think because I'm heading to Manchester to see Take That tonight (SO EXCITED, I heard Gary Barlow is planning to propose to me). Anyway, this week has been another good week for me - constantly on the move, eating healthily and I discovered a new snack which I mentioned on Twitter during the week and hopefully I'll get a chance to post about it next week. However, I do seem to think that eating everything in sight is allowed on weekends and I need to learn that it isn't! I haven't weighed myself yet but fingers crossed it's a loss, even if it's only a little bit :)
Sarah V is in Italy this week so we hope she is eating her body weight in pasta, pesto and gellato! Life is too short to be good all the time :)
That's it from us for this week, how have you been finding your challenges? If you're struggling to stay on track don't forget you can always tweet us instead of reaching for that pizza or chocolate bar :)
