I am so stoked - I got my 50lbs certificate this week! I couldn't believe it when I stood on the scales and it said I had lost 6.5lbs - thats crazy insane. I have been very restrictive since my blow out on Friday, plus things in the bottom department have been better, so I should imagine that accounts for a lot of it.

I am now the following; under 16st (15st 10lbs), under 100kg (just), 55.5lbs down, into a size 18 (mostly) and 1.5lbs away from 4 stone gone! Sheesh.

I've gotta make a trip to Tesco for some food, but I will try and update more often.

Happy Slimming =)

naughty naughty

Just a quickie - I've been on and off track all week so am not expecting anything this week.

Last week at WI I lost 1.5lbs so still on track, just going to be extra good between now and Wed!

Will update properly sometime later.

Happy Slimming =)

the one where i went a little bonkers.

In fairness, I have been on holiday of sorts - I've been staying at my boyfriends and seeing our two best friends and their newborn daughter who are down from Bristol.

I'd stuck religiously to points from Wed - Friday evening, and then after having a mediocre 4 points during the day I thought it would be okay to have a chinese - so got a mushroom chow mein (4.5pts) - however, I ended up eating about four chicken/prawn balls and some chips. Not good. I was still within points but still.

Saturday it got worse. Ribs, crisps, chips, pizza, chicken breast pieces, onion rings (!!!) and a great deal of wine. In my defence this was a day long party type thing, but considering I had bought and took round some special foods I shouldn't have gone OTT - I also definitely didn't eat as much as I would have done before, sharing a pizza and not eating many chips.

Sunday - angelic, too much so - 8pts for the whole day and a whopping 10.5 BP's.

Monday - basically crap. I've been really constipated for the last two weeks and in my infinite wisdom thought some greasy crap food may clear me out (I've literally tried everything healthy, supplements, medication, the lot) - wrong. I had a curry that was laden in fat, as well as a small bit of chocolate cake and a small portion of chips from the chip shop. Talk about going off the wagon!

Again, I made sure my portions were small and I tried to keep a total of how many points, I reckon I'm probably about 20pts over for this week.

Anyway, as mentioned above I've had some serious problems in the ol' bottom department which ended up with me having to go to hospital this morning to get some kind of treatment. A half-worked enema was the result and I'm still downing movicol (rank stuff) now. I feel like total shit, so my feelings towards dieting at the moment are at a low ebb, but today I have been fine and will continue to be. It's actually quite funny, I don't particularly like fatty foods anymore - not only with the guilt associated but with the fact it just makes me feel blergh.

I also bought some home scales but they are not as accurate as the ones in Boots - which after weighing myself today came up as 16st 2lbs, quite a bit more than the 15st 13lbs it showed at the end of last week :( However, there is a big blockage.

Have decided that I am not going to WI tomorrow for a variety of reasons a) I feel rubbish and do not fancy a bus journey from the coast to Norwich if I'm feeling dodgy tummy wise, b) the result isn't going to be reflective due to blockage and c) I've not really tried very hard this week. Probably the wrong choice but I am still debating whether to go or not - if I've put on weight I will take it but I'm more scared of getting on the bus and needing the loo!

Anyway, this has been all in all a bit TMI, so sorry about that, but felt I needed to explain in light of the bad choices I've made this week. Consider the line drawn!

10th WI!

I had some problems this week in the old tummy department, so was fearful that I would show a gain or STS.

Week was fine, no blips, no going over, lots of exercise, fruit and veg etc. Just bunged up - TMI!

I managed to lose 2.5lbs which means I'm at 47.5lbs in total and 2.5lbs away from the 50lbs certificate, am crossing my fingers that I get it next week! A sneaky peak on the scales after a night up due to laxatives says I'm 15st 13lbs - I honestly cannot remember the last time I was in the 15's!

Hope you're all having a good weeks.

Happy Slimming =)

monthly measurements.

Believe it or not, it's that time again! Time really does fly sometimes.

I thought I'd give a little update as well whilst I'm here.

Nothing much is happening chez moi - I've moved out of my flat and am in with my Mum now to commence some serious saving. I've earnt quite a few bonus points shifting stuff around and have made more of an effort (well, from today) to do more exercise - I have neglected the old Wii for a couple of weeks and haven't been doing toning exercises etc. Slapped wrist!

Everything is okay Points wise, apart from a minor blip on Tuesday (stupidly the day before WI) where I had half a roast chicken and a mint magnum. Whoops! I have no idea why I get to Tuesday and everything goes a bit batshit in my head. I think it's because Rob has Tuesdays off a lot. No excuse really!

I'm starting to see a difference now - initially I could only "feel" it (quicker pace of walking, not getting so tired) but I'm dropping dress sizes - I think I must have been nudging a 24 before I started WW and I'm getting into 20's mainly with the occasional 18/22. I bought a shrug the other day in a 16 - granted it's a bit small but it will do for the summer.

Anyway - measurements and photos! Green is todays, purple was last months and red is when I first started.

Right Upper Arm - 12.5inches / 14inches> (14.5 inches) - loss of 1.5 inches since last month
Waist - 42.5inches / 44.5inches (46.5inches) - loss of 2 inches since last month
Hips - 46.5inches / 49inches (53.5inches) - loss of 2.5 inches since last month
Right Thigh - 28inches / 30.5inches (31.5inches) - loss of 2.5 inches since last month
Bust (under) - 39.5inches /42inches (42.5inches) - loss of 2.5 inches since last month
Bust (over) - 44.5 inches / 48 inches (48.5inches) - loss of 3.5 inches since last month
Neck - 14.5inches / 15inches (16.2 inches) - loss of 0.5 inches since last month

TOTAL = 15 inches since last month :)

I also have some photos for your perusal!

This is when I first started.

This is one month on:

This is today, 45lbs down.

Lastly, a big thank you to the girls and guys on 5+ to Lose, MiniMins WW section and to all the comments on here - I'm really grateful that people are following me and encouraging me :)

Happy Slimming =)

9th weigh in!

Hey readers, not been around much as I've just moved house and am absolutely shattered!

Managed to lose 5.5lbs this week, I have absolutely no idea how or why considering I ate half a roast chicken the day before >.<

I made a little video blog which I may do each month - I've tried to upload it to Blogger but won't work so here is the link!

Happy Slimming =)
