Sunday Summary #14

Sunday, 19 June 2011

Another week been and gone, they sure are flying by.

Sarah - I tried Slimming Worlds 'Fast Forward' plan this week and I have to say it's pretty miserable :( It's a low calorie diet that feels like a diet, I have been hungry all week. BUT I have managed to lose another 3lbs this week which after those 3 weeks of only 1lb losses even though I was an angel and stuck to plan 100%, it has most definitely been worth it. I have now lost 18lbs in 9 weeks on Slimming World. My sisters wedding is in 5 weeks and I want to lose at least another 8lbs by then although I am secretly hoping to keep up these 3lb a week loses and achieve a whopping 15lbs ;)

Gemma - Another week without a weigh in which is rather annoying. Weigh-ins are on a Tuesday morning or Thursday evening and I was in work for both of these. I have a feeling that I put weight on the first week I missed class and I've managed to lose it again this week because I've been very strict. I'm moving house on Friday and have a hen night on Saturday so I hope all the lifting and moving things will cancel out the cocktails the next day. I'm still working towards my ultimate goal of fitting into a size 16/18 dress for my friends wedding at the end of July and I can do it! only about 5 weigh-ins left eek.

Charlene - I'm determined to get back on track and have restarted the 30 day shred. I'm using heavier weights (rather than tin cans) this time so hopefully I'll get some good results. Food wise I've been quite good. I seem to have lost my appetite a bit and haven't been craving 'bad' foods at all.

Lucy - I too have totally fallen off track this week, it was my last week at work and the office has been full of sweet treats, I was taken out for amazing Thai food on my last day and then this weekend I have been away on a surprise trip for my 21st birthday. I don't think eating well will be an option this week because of my birthday which is on Saturday! I'm moving home tomorrow though so I'll probably start the shred again at some point! Really need to get back on track...

Sarah V - I feel rather ashamed of myself lately as my eating and exercise habits are not really worthy of the other Where Are My Knees girls! I always knew June would be difficult with Italy at the start and Glastonbury at the end, but I didn't realise just how much it would destroy my motivation. I'm eating terribly. I've made a pact with myself now to get Glasto out the way - I'll try and be good, but we always eat on the run so much that it's not easy - and then attack the diet with renewed gusto when I'm back. I'm just hoping I can get my motivation back!

How has your week been? Inspire us with your achievements!!


  1. Hi girls!

    I have lost 1.5lbs this week which takes me to 8.5lbs total in the last month. My motivation is pretty good at the moment as I found bags of old clothes and tried them all on, relishing how much better they fit!

    Keep it up, I'm rooting for you all!

  2. Have lost 2.5lbs this week, but all that means is that in 2 weeks I've managed to loose the weight I managed to gain in one week on holiday!

    Motivation is flagging, not going to lie. Trying to focus on my birthday on July 11th as being a time I want to look good but haven't found 'THE DRESS' yet so have nothing to imagine myself in. Plus 'THE DRESS' I did have isn't going to fit me until I loose a stone and 4 lbs because that was the last time I did fit into it was a stone and 4lbs ago and there's no point pretending I'll loose that by July 11th.

    Sorry for the rant. Anyway, yes, motivation is flagging :(

    Well done to everyone else on their achievements though! I'm on this blog daily to try and stir up my motivation a bit-you guys are inspiring!

    Much Love

  3. I've not had a great month, I've been steadily gaining weight after hitting a wall back in April. I had lost 3 stone at that point, keep trying to get back on the wagon but find it so hard!

    I'm determined to stick to a healthy eating plan this week, no bingeing and at least two exercise sessions!

    Thanks for the motivation and inspiration!
