December

8 Dec

Yo!

Here we are in December, almost a year since I restarted my weightloss journey.

I’m not going into all the amazing achievements I’ve had this year. That’ll be a new year blog post.

Today’s post is a quick update really and some pics haha yay.

After my terrible run a couple of weeks ago I feel I’ve come back even bigger and better.

I’m seeing my running improvements every single time I hit the road.

Running at work at lunch time I’ve found myself doing over 3miles each time and in less than the 3mins I give myself to get it done.

I’ve gone from feeling like I’m a 11/12min mile girl to pulling in the miles in under 10mins.

This, coupled with feeling like I’m not really pushing myself hard enough on my Monday and Tuesday runs has led me to decide to go up a group on Tuesdays. So as of this Tuesday I’m going to try the Fast Hares group. Push push push.

For the Monday runs defo time to try and push up the pace too but as we don’t tend to run in defined groups it will be about me pushing to keep up with those ahead of me.

This morning I pushed. I’ve never ever run further than 10k. Even though I know I can go further, I never do. Well this week I thought “no more” no more will I feel fear as I reach that 10k mark. I won’t stop. I’ll keep going.

So I planned to wake up early and do my home to London bridge run, this time with a difference. I’m gonna run back!!!! Whaaaaat? That’s right, run back again.

I really wanted someone to run with because I didn’t trust myself to actually run back. But alas people have lives and I don’t have a pack of people who are at my beck and call. So I set of a 9.30am on the dot and hit the roads.

My plan was to not tire myself out and to take it nice and slow. Harder than you think. I’ve gotten used to starting at a certain pace so going slower was really hard.

One shop stop for some skittles, loo break and a quick run by the river I reach the big L Bridge.

Self taken shot at the big boat and then I was off on my way back again. I did have a quick thought of “lemme just jump on the train back”. But since I’d told the whole of twitter I was doing this run I couldn’t let my people down. I actually picked up the pace slightly. I wasn’t tired at all. But for me this was all about getting it in.

The run to L.Bridge wasn’t hard and neither was the journey back but by the time I got to deptford I was really feeling it. I didn’t walk any of the journey but took a little pitstop and when I started again my legs felt sooooo heavy. But knowing I was so close to home, onwards I went. I had no choice, no direct bus to home meant I had to move anyway.

I made it back into lewisham. 10.81miles, 2hours2mins later and the run was done.

20121208-150926.jpg

I can do it. I can put in serious distance.

I’m a winner! Whoop.

I had energy left so I’m sure that I can do the full half marathon distance.

Roll on March.

There is this 80milemonth challenge going on at the moment. Created over at the spikes and heels blog (found here). The idea is that you clock up 80running miles over the month of December. Sounds impossible right? I’m giving it a go anyway.

I’ve clocked up 20miles since the beginning of the month.

It will be a great way to keep me on track during the festive period, since I’ve already started on the quality streets at work.

I put on 1.5lbs this week. Back up to 15st4lbs. Oops.
I expected it to be honest, but it would be nice to be under 15st by the new year so no time to slack really.

Here are some funny pics.

See ya later 🙂

Bad move leelee, bad move

23 Nov

I wonder what it was that lead me to do the following last night?

Had to pop to Westfield in Stratford last night to collect something. I went into Marks to get some dinner.

Thought I’d treat myself so picked up a chunky chocolate cheesecake slice. “I deserve this” is what I told myself.

Stepped out the shop and saw a Greggs. “Mmmm, I really feel like a Yumyum”…..”and a jam donut”.

I said to myself I’d save the cheesecake for tomorrow.

Instead what I did was eat the Yumyum on the way to the shop I actually needed to go to.

Ate the donut on the way to the DLR and ate the cheesecake slice whilst waiting for my DLR to leave.

Then hid all the wrappers and rubbish so Chris wouldn’t know when I got home.

Got home and made and ate dinner as usual.

I hid the rubbish cos I felt shame.

I feel like I need to get this off my chest this morning.

The yumyum and the donut tasted like rubbish by the way, or was it just my guilt?

Bad move Leelee, bad move.

Aside

Proudness!!!

21 Nov

Look at this, another post and only a week to wait this time. I know, I spoil you all.

This week I am feeling proudness, (I dunno if that’s even a word to be honest, but it’s how I’m feeling).

Coming out of one’s comfort zone is never easy and a lot of people don’t know it has taken me many, many years to over come my shy side, 98% of people who know me now have never even seen that shy side. The person who would walk in to a room and be crippled with fear to even talk to any one, let along be a leader.

Over the years I’ve taken massive steps to over come this. When I left school I went to a college where none of my school friends went in order to force myself to meet new people.

I saw a life coach, I went on a confidence and assertiveness course.

I’ve worked really hard to put that shy, scared person away. I do jobs which require me to deal with people. I love people, but I often worry what they think of me, I’m too tall, they’re going to call me a giant. I won’t have anything worth saying. etc, etc, etc. I’m sure you have all been there.

But yes, the point of this is, on Tuesday evening, my second week of Run Dem Crew. Head Honcho, Daddy Dark, asked me if I know the way to the Emirates and will I lead my group. I froze and 6billion thoughts go through my head in the space of about 30 seconds.

I even did that thing when you don’t actually believe someone is talking to you and go “who me?” ha ha

Then I just put all of that aside and said yes.

so yeah, 10 minutes later, I’m leading a group of 6 amazing ladies on the mean streets of London. Man, I was poohing my panties lol.

We did 5 miles. We didn’t quite make it to the Stadium; we ran a pace that was comfortable for us, got back in good time and most of all, had fun.

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, I feel proud of me.

I’m so grateful I was given that opportunity. Well and truly out of my comfort zone but loving it.

Me and the RDC ladies

I’m also proud of the way I gave it my all at Run Dem Crew West on Monday. We did track. I don’t even think I think I did track at school, so for me this was virgin territory. 10x 100m at 60%, 5 x 200m at 60% then the last 50m full pelt and finally 4 x 400 metres at 60% then the last 100m at full pelt.

I actually, almost vomited. That shizz was hard. But for me, I knew that I had to at least try my best. How am I ever going to do a half marathon unless I push myself. I know I’m a plodder and I really need to step out of my comfort zone and push hard. Push hard I did.

I think this pic says it all!

that’s me!

I wasn’t expecting too much at weigh in this week. It’s that time all ladies hate and after all the free cheese and booze  samples at the Ideal home show – Xmas edition I was going to be grateful to stay the same. Amazingly I dropped another 1lb and a half.

Roll on the tears. I not only smashed my 15%. That’s right, I have lost over 15% of my totally body weight, I have finally hit that 3 stone marker.

One massive hurdle overcome

Most of you know that the past few months have been really hard for me and I wanted to be at this point two months ago. 11months later, 3 stone down and it feels great. I’m welling up as I write this.

I don’t think anyone can know how I feel at this part of my journey. I know people have done the same before me and people will do the same after, but no one else is me and I am not them.

11 months ago I couldn’t imagine that I would be 3 stone lighter.

So yay me, but the hard work isn’t over. To get to the top of a healthy weight range according to my BMI I need to be 12st12lbs. Yes I know I’m very tall and very curvy and all that. I am talking medically here.

My next goal is to get to my 20%. 14.9lbs. I’d love to get there for my year anniversary of being back on track, 2nd Janaury 2013.  From there I’ll look at my 25% and so on.

I still feel overweight and until I feel comfortable I will continue to get the weight down.  and that’s the main thing, how I feel.

Paris and running will keep me motivated. As will all my inspirational and supportive friends.

I ain’t done yet peoples. Proudness won’t let me finish yet.

Big loves

Shocking!

17 Aug
Shocked. That’s people’s reaction when I tell them I’m currently 15 and a half stone, or that I used to be over 18stone at the beginning of the year.
Image
I’ve never looked as heavy as I am. It must be due to my height. Being 6ft means I do carry it well. Whilst I understand the shock I need to tell you all, I’m not lying!! Why would I?
I also need to say that although I have another 3 stone until I get to goal. That 3 stone is not too much. I know some people are worried that I’ll be too slim. I am still a size 14/16 now and when I started I was an 18/20 so its not like I have dropped 6 dress sizes with the weight I have lost. My body is not like that.
Image
I have thighs a bum and some very lovely jubblies. Yes they have all downsized slightly but they are never going to disappear.
I remember when I was 21/22 years old, I was a size 12/14 and I weighed about 13 stone. Back then being one of the first times I had weighed myself and being just into the “overweight” category. I was happy with how I looked so I wasn’t too bothered.
But thinking about it. It is improbable for me as an adult to be smaller than a size 12… and I don’t want to be. What I want is to be super fit and super healthy. Nothing is going to get in my way.
So all you people out there super shocked at how much I currently weigh because of my immense gorgeousness, don’t be. We all have different bodies and shapes and metabolisms. This is mine!
So, what been happening over the past two weeks. Well, I finally had a decent loss on Thursday the 9th. 2.5lbs off and last night a loss of another 1lb. So once more officially at my lowest weight of 15stone 7lbs. Since January the 2nd. That’s 38lbs/2stone 10lbs. I just have to say… That shizz is cray.
Unless I do something off-key I wont lose the 7lbs by August 31st but never mind. I will be under 15 stone in early September.
Not that I can change it but I got slightly annoyed last night when I looked at the data on my weight loss chart.  July 5th weigh in I was 15st10lbs. August 2nd weigh in I was 15st10.5lbs!! I did so much bouncing around during July that I didn’t actually lose any weight. At one point in the month I was 15st8lbs but then went back up again. Do you know how frustrating that is? Can you imagine? But hey ho. got to keep it moving.
Image
August has already improved and as always I just have to keep that momentum going.
I have been doing my Spartan homework as well as my running and cycling.
The cycling is hard as I live in such a hilly area but nevertheless I will keep it going.
Image
Last Friday in Spartan training the name of the game was pull ups! I don’t care that it was my first time attempting it, All I could do was hang there. Not even with my legs time and arms bent. Hang there like some crazy dead weight.. I felt like a proper loser but it has made me determined to win. I hit up the outdoor gym near my this week and spent time time on the pull up bar there. There was movement I swear. I still hung like a dead chicken in a butchers window but I’m sure I managed half a cm lift. I’m certain of it. SO that my friends is progress!
Image
RDC West. This is the hardest running I have ever had to do. but I love it so much! Sprints. SPRINTS! I am slow but I tell myself just keep running. I think I will get better and I already feel a difference in my lone running.
I love my new regime! 🙂

I’m Giving Up!

7 Aug

 

 

That’s right, I’m giving up, but it’s not what you think.
I am giving up certain vices which I feel might be hindering my progress.
I have come to the realisation that yes, I am losing weight but am I making enough significant changes to improve my health.
I may stick to my points allowance, but I eat more chocolate and sweet snacks these days then I did before Weight Watchers. A weight watchers Chew toffee Popcorn bars (one of my faves) is 2pro points per bar and I’ll often have one of these or a sister bar in the afternoon. The Honey Oat Morning Breakfast bar is another favorite. I  might have one of those a day as well. Over all I use about 6 – 8 pro points a day on chocolaty/sweet WW snacks.
It’s time to stop that. So I’m quitting the snacks. I already eat quite a bit of fruit daily but now I will be replacing these snacks with more fruit and more water.
I must say though, I am not giving up the cake completely, I do believe that its cool to have the odd treat or nice bit of cake but this daily sweet snacking is stopping!
I’m quitting!!!
Again, it’s not what you think.
I don’t drink a lot anyway, but I have decided to quit the booze. Last night, popped into a bar with the BF and some friends to watch the amazing Men’s 100m Finals. Went to the bar and thought, hmmm let me have a drink. I’ll be good. No wine (about 4pro points), a rum and diet coke (2 pro points). Got back to the table, took one sip, 30 seconds later managed to whack the glass off the table. A sure sign that I should not have been letting that booze past my luscious lips. I didn’t bother to buy a new one. I made the decision right there to stop drinking.
I’m walking away!!
It’s not what….oh, you get the gist.
I’m walking away from red meat. I find even buying lean products there is still a lot of fat in there and think I would benefit from leaning towards getting essential fats from fish and a more white meat based diet. So I’m walking away from the red meat. I’ll give it a go for a month and see what happens. To be honest I don’t eat much red meat anyway so this won’t be too hard.
So those are the changes I have decided to make diet wise which I hope will really really boost the next phase of my journey.
Now, let me tell you about my first Spartan Fam work out on Friday. I had so much fun. I was really nervous beforehand. I arrived at 1948 in Shoreditch (Shoreditch is way too cool for the likes of me) very early and was greeted by the lovely Alicia Creates. She told me to take a look around the shop and chill. People started flitting in one by one and every one was ridiculously friendly. I gained a real sense of community from them all. They were so excited to be there and really took the time to make me feel comfortable and welcome.
The leader of the Spartan Fam arrived and dished out free VitaCoco. I’m quite undecided about this stuff. The original flavour is not to my tastes but the pineapple one was divine. So hydrated and refreshed the group set out to the spot where the work out commences. A little park up towards Hackney. We took a leisurely jog over to get us warmed up.
In the park, people looked at us in amazement. A massive group of us took over the play park and set to work. I say took over but there was plenty of space for us and the kiddies already using the fun stuff.
Circuits commenced, using the play park equipment as our gym and our bodies as our weights. Squats, lunges, pull ups, press ups, planks, sit ups and dreaded burpees. We partnered up and there was no messing. It was hard. I have no upper body strength so found it a real challenge, but I was encouraged by the long timers and the newbie’s also looked out for each other as well. Sympathy glances and nods of encouragement. It was ace. Once that was over, we headed to the adjoining field where the cardio section began. Unfortunately, I managed to pull a muscle in my quad, which ruled me out of running but whilst the rest of the team did sprint circuits and what I feel was also a good bit of team building, I had one of the Spartan Fam organisers showing me how to do press ups and doing ab work drills with me, I might have been injured but the work out didn’t stop. I loved every second of it.
Work out done every one headed back to 1948 for a quick stretch and cool down and some exciting news updates.
Then like a true community we feasted! A hardcore group of us headed to Nandos where yet again that community bond was made tighter.
Bad leg aside, I really enjoyed myself, come Sunday I couldn’t fully extend my arms, so they definitely got a work out.
Chaka warned the group during the cool down that we have to do our homework. Of course, the hard work doesn’t stop just because we aren’t in class. Chaka is a man who wont suffer fools gladly. Be prepared to work hard or go home. His homework videos are a way of continuing to build on the Friday sessions.
He has a youtube channel full of fantastic videos which start right from the beginning. Introductions to pull ups and squats amongst over things.
There are 13 homework videos. I’m obviously starting at number one as I have been warned they get progressively harder as you go on, but I don’t want to go to class on Friday and be the one who clearly ain’t been studying.
I’ve come to realise over the past few weeks, that my journey is not just about losing weight because my doctor told me too, it’s about getting in to the best shape I could ever possibly be in. It’s time to step up my game.
Below is my new “before” photo. This is now the one I will be comparing all future photos to. It’s no longer about seeing less fat, but about getting stronger, fitter and being a better me!

My New before photo! yay

There are no excuses, so as the cool kids say… Leggoooooo!

Guest Post – Team Last Year I’m Fat

5 Aug

A close friend of mine wrote this lovely piece for me on her weightloss journey. She continues to inspire me and help me daily. Enjoy.

I wasn’t always fat, but I’ve always loved food. That change came about when I got pregnant. Every time someone saw me they fed me, they piled it on, lovingly, they watched while I fed the life inside of me and my ever growing self. I didn’t notice and before you knew it I had put on five and a half stone. That’s a lot of weight but I felt no urgency, no one said anything, I was still beautiful, I was tall and everyone said how well I looked. I think they lied to me you know.

Some of the weight came off, but not all of it, I tried all the diets but I never again got back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I still haven’t. I had another baby but was more careful that time and only put on 1 stone. I was still fat though.

My husband left I put on more weigh though the stress and the heartache, some people lose weight when they are heartbroken but not me. I eat and eat to fill the hole of loss.

A year after he left I had to give up the car and an amazing thing happened. I started to lose weight without even thinking about it, by this time my eating had become more normal. I walked everywhere and still do. If I don’t have the kids and I have the time I walk – whether it’s one mile or six.

In 8 months I lost four stone. From doing nothing but walking my arse off. People didn’t recognise me, I felt really good about myself. I think for the first time in a long time I really was feeling myself, I was more than a mum and wife I was Sabrina. Something so small can make such a difference, I realised that my husband leaving was probably one of the best things that had ever happened to me and I started doing things that made me happy like going natural, being vegetarian, wearing clothes I liked, I am the person I want to be now.

Like an addiction losing weight is something you can only do when you and your body is ready, it’s even harder because we all need food to live, it’s not like alcohol where you can say “I know it’s bad for me so I’m going to give it up COMPLETELY”. The fight to control your urge to over eat is a daily struggle. Three times a day I have to decide I’m not going to eat my children’s left overs, or I’m not going to eat the last 2 biscuits and choose to eat something healthy, rather than something quick. The hardest thing of all is keeping it off.

So it’s been two years since I lost that weight, I’ve only put back on one stone, I could be despondent about that but I’m happy with that achievement I could have put it all back on, now I’m on a path to lose that and lose one more, 28lb, by the end of the year. That is more than doable.

I choose to be kind to myself about this, I work out, I just did the 5k race for life, I work, I look after my kids and this is not a race, but I really would like this to be the last year I’m fat.

Spicing it up!

1 Aug

It’s taken me three days to write this post!

So, bad week last week. No actually, not a bad week. I thoroughly enjoyed the week, but I did eat and drink a lot!
Last Friday I had a family party and saw relatives I haven’t seen in far too long. There was lots of finger food and wine to be drunk.

Saturday was my boyfriends birthday. I held a little party for him. More precisely a wings and cocktails party. This, as you can imagine, consisted of chicken wings and cocktails. – I should have been a bar tender, cos I made some seriously yummy cocktails.
20120801-114325.jpg

Sunday, lunch at the misters parents. A nice juicy roast

Monday, his actual birthday, dinner at Bodean’s a tasty rib joint. Super noms. Followed by dessert at Hagan Daaz.
Not forgetting birthday cake of course.

A truly indulgent weekend. and I didn’t track any of it. I hardly tracked all week. (smacks hand)

I did run a couple of times but nothing could counter all that food and I managed to gain a 1lb. I’m surprised it wasn’t more to be honest.

I also set a new running goal on my Nike+ running app. To run 3 times a week. So far I’m on track so good times. I really want to bring down my 5k time to under 30 mins. I currently hover around 32mins. frustrating.

And!!! I have managed to secure myself a bike. I am doing really bladdy well I tell ya.

This weekend was much more sedate and and less indulgent. I did go out, but didn’t really drink and more so, I tracked what I drank.
20120801-114445.jpg

Sunday!! What a fab day. The Mister convinced me to come along to this Spartan Family work out day in a park in Shoreditch. I was really dubious about it all at first. Leeanne is not a Spartan. Leeanne is lazy. But it was so much fun. Indeed, I had so much fun I didn’t even realise how hard I worked. Push ups, Squats, Wheelbarrow and piggy bags. Relay races and OMG, a tug of war. I’m still in pain now. But that good pain which leaves me knowing I did well. So I have now been convinced to join their sessions on Friday evening. These, I’m sure are going to be even harder but I’m looking forward to it. My favourite part of the day (aside from not coming last in the tug-o-war) was during the rain storm there was a massive thunder clap. The whole group just turned towards the sound and shouted “ahooo”. That was cool!

MONDAY!!!! Run Dem Crew (RDC). Mentioned in my earlier blog post by Angel Dee. This is a running crew which meet weekly and quite simply….runs. I met a lovely lady at the Spartan Day who managed to convince me that I would have fun and be looked after. So after work I headed over to Paddington Rec where the RDC West meets. Such a friendly group of people. Obsessed with taking photo’s but then so am I. So we headed out towards Hyde Park. Not once did I feel too slow. There was always someone looking after the back, motivating me on. And it was hard. I think because I’m used to running continuously on my little runs and here we stopped often and it felt a bit like interval training. We did about 6 miles I think. I forgot my armband so no phone to track. I slept like a baby that night I tell you.

Had a day off on Tuesday, as my whole body was in mega after exercise pain but I did watch some of the Spartan training videos to learn how to do pull ups and push ups. Had a little practice. Good times.

Tonight, I collect the bike. I’m so grateful to my Charlene for allowing me to take her bike and so excited. I’m going to be doing about 10k from Brixton to Lewisham. I have sorted out lights and my helmet. I’m a bit nervous but it should be fun.

I’ll be doing another blog post after this weeks weigh in so I’ll let you know how it went then.

Finally, with August being the carnival month, I wanted the share the below piccy with you.

The first shot is me in part of my carnival costume last year, the second shot is me on the weekend just gone. For me I can see a difference on my tummy area. I still look at my carnival pics from last year and regret how big I looked in them. Not doing costume this year but maybe next year when I’ll be maintaining at goal.

Challenge Accepted…

20 Jul

Happy Thursday/Friday.

Hello my poppets.

Back on track this week. After behaving myself food wise and not being sick. A teeny bit of exercise and I have managed to lose 2.5lbs this week. New weight is 15st8lbs. NICE!!!

I think I got a little bored of tracking over the past few weeks. This losing weight and getting healthy lark is hard and tiring and yes I know the ultimate rewards are more than worth it, I miss being a greedy pig. I miss eating whole pizzas and stuff.

Meh

Soooooo last week I set my new mini goal. 11lbs by the 30th August. So thats now 6 weeks to lose 9lbs. Get in Leelee. I can totes do that. 1.5lb a week. Boom

I have now also found a new fitness challenge.

The 5×50 challenge. It’s starts in September. The mission? To walk, jog, run or cycle 5km a day for 50 days (consecutively).

Harder than it seems. I aim to do this on top of my usual daily walking.

It’s in aid of sports relief but all you do is donate 5quid when you sign up.

So who’s in? Take a look at the website. Anyone can do this.
http://5×50.co.uk/

I did my first run this Wednesday since my 10km on the 2nd July. Was so frustrated. I ran 5km and was just 2seconds away from beating my personal best. I was finishing on a hill and it was so hard. I really pushed. Next time aye. (still looking for run partners and also looking for a bike, if anyone has one I can have…..)

20120720-003235.jpg

This lucozade drink is delishio. 1propoint per bottle. Love that shizz.

20120720-003354.jpg

And this is my new indulgent treat. YooMoo! 4 points per 150ml and it’s super nom. tropical flavour is my favourite.

20120720-003442.jpg

Oh and I have to big up this lunch I had today at work.

20120720-003524.jpg

Haloumi, roast aubergine and courgette. With a tomato and cucumber salad. Soooooo delicious.

That’s it from me now.

As always, please share and leave comment

The Big “Fat” Issue

8 Jun

Had to reblog this amazing post from my friend Angel-Dee.

Weigh in. (sometimes miracles happen)

8 Jun

Hi guys!

Firstly, an apology. I promised a special blog post last Sunday and it hasn’t yet gone up. That’s because I am rubbish. It will be up in the next couple of days. 🙂 It’s worth waiting for.

Ok, back to business as usual.

Been an odd week. Mainly because due to the Queens jubilee we had a 4 day weekend here in the UK. A weekend when the Queen wanted us to party like rockstars. And party we did.

20120608-090336.jpg

I had a massively amazing blow out. Quick run down.

Friday: Wetherspoons with the Mister. Sharing platter. Dessert. Booze.

Saturday: Pizza with the Mister. (I promised myself Dominos once I got under 16st).

Sunday: A good day 🙂

Monday: One of my besties came to stay. She bought homemade cheesecake. Two kinds. Nom. We had wine. Lots of it. And those BBQ skewer type things. Super nom.

Tuesday: chilli and oven chips. Homemade chilli. Mmmmmm

Now, I know all of that was way over my dailies and weeklies. I didn’t track as I had no access to e-source – the online weight watchers tracking system.

The one thing I did do well this week was exercise. I ran 4 times i think. Beat last weeks mileage anyway.

20120608-083604.jpg

But I had to be realistic. Was running a few times really going to burn off all that food and drink?
No way mate.

By Thursday morning I was feeling really crappy. Why couldn’t I have more restraint? Resisted the urge. The pizza could have waited till this weekend.

I felt like I had subconsciously done this on purpose.

Begged Bethalicious for the scales in the morning. I had to know before the meeting what I had let myself in for. Be prepared for the damage. I’m pleased to say she stayed strong. Gave me a stern look and told me not to be silly. I sulked.

We made a deal. If I had put on weight Beth would owe me a run (if one day I couldn’t be bothered to run, she would go for me) and vice versa if I had lost weight.

Got to the meeting and I think one of the first things I said to my leader was that I had put on.

I think half the meeting were in the same boat as me as it was a very small meeting. I’m guessing people took a week off to undo the jubilee naughtiness heehee. But one think I have learnt is that there is no point hiding from the truth. Just find out, deal with it and start again. Even if you lose weight. Take each new week and day as a fresh start.

I told the leader, Saz, that I didn’t want to know the damage as I stepped on the scales. “Are you sure?” she said. I opened on eye and looked at her.

Half a lb off! I almost fainted.

So miracles can happen.

I don’t know how it happened but man, I was pleased.
I won’t be doing that again though (famous last words).

I made a secret promise to myself that I won’t ever be over 16stone again and I almost undid that promise in less than a week. Fool of a Took!

I know that not every week will be a perfect week but everything in moderation. I know I can enjoy the things I want with tracking and planning, but in all honesty, I just binged this week.

My e-source is up and running again. I would love a lb and a half this week, but no pressure. I’ll see what happens.

See you in a few days. As always love and kisses. Please comment and share
