Good Week :)

I had a really good week this week.  Stayed on plan 95% of the time!

On Friday, I went a little walk to deliver some Slimming World leaflets.  On Saturday we went to a christening, so that was more walking, about half an hours worth.  I then had lots of wine spritzers, and got a bit drunk!  I didn't have much to eat, except the crusts off Kieron's sandwiches he didn't want, a piece of lettuce and a pringle, Kieron force fed it to me!  On Monday I went to the gym, did 35 minutes on treadmill, and 20 minutes on exercise bike.  I think i'm going to build my way up on the treadmill, see if I can eventually get to a run, and do some intervals.  It's the only equipment I enjoy so far.  On Wednesday, I went swimming with Jake and Elliot, didn't do much swimming but did keep myself active, bobbing around in the water.

Thursday, yuck!  I woke up feeling so ill, very sick and my tummy had a washing machine inside, or so it felt!  I left work at 10am, went home and got in bed until about 1.45pm.  Then I got up and had some fruit and yoghurt - big mistake!  It didn't settle very well.  Still, I managed to survive Parents evening at my daughter's school - no mean feat, it's always chaos!  Then at weigh in, I had lost another 4.5 lbs :) :) :)  (Some of that may be through having not a lot to eat and feeling ill though!)  So in total I have now lost 51 lbs!  I also am owed my 3.5 st award, which I will get next week, as I didn't hang around for it this week with feeling so bleurgh!

Another Update :)

Just back from weigh in, i've had a completely angelic week, stuck to the plan 100% and have been rewarded with a lovely 6 lbs loss.

This is the total opposite to last week!!  I ate, and ate, and ate, and ate (you get the picture!), and it resulted in a 3.5 lb gain.  I don't know why I do it, but as long as I can get back on track and get going in the right direction again, that's the important thing!

I'm now 18 stones and 13.5 lbs, so just about inched under the next stone bracket!! Yay!

Our friends wedding is 1 month away today, I can't remember where i'm up to since setting myself an 18lb target with 9 weeks to go, so i'll just say anything lost between now and then is good!  I started SW in a size 26/28, and i've bought a size 22 dress, which fits nicely already, but by the wedding it will fit even better!  I've booked a room in the hotel (wedding venue) for the night for me & hubby, we are both REALLY looking forward to it!  We didn't even stay in a hotel room on our wedding night so it will be luxury!

Almost forgot to mention, the week before last I also lost 1.5 lbs, and got slimmer of the week for that week, plus slimmer of the month for March!  Not bad for the week after my birthday!
