Sunday Weigh In 7

It's now been 7 weeks since starting my new healthy lifestyle I decided that each Sunday I will post up my progress, whether successful or not in the hope that it encourages me to stay positive and keep going.  Knowing that I will be sharing it all here will hopefully keep my willpower up!  In order for me to keep track and look back for ideas, I will be listing my food diary here as well (and who knows, it might inspire others to have a go too!)  It also gives me somewhere to put all the photos of the yummy food I love to take as it always looks so good!

This week started off badly as I was ill AGAIN!  I have spoken to a GP (having Nik's Dad on the end of a phone is very handy without having to try and get an appointment to bother my doctor all the time!) who suggests I get a blood test just to check everything out at the beginning of my next bout of sore throat/illness as I seem to be getting ill every month since the beginning of the year which is not normal and VERY annoying!  Luckily by Thursday I was feeling back on track despite an annoying night time cough which is still present and making me uber tired!

And the results this week:

Weight last week - 12 st 11 1/2 lbs
Weight this week - 12 st 8 lbs
Loss/Gain this week - 3 1/2 lbs

Total Loss - 10 lbs

I'm extremely surprised with the results this week as I haven't done much exercise.  I would like to have lost a stone by the wedding in May, just so I can say I've lost a stone if anyone asks!  So the aim is 2lbs a week until then (it's in 2 weeks!) which is definitely do-able!  I've been flicking through my 'Easy Healthy' M&S recipe book today to choose a few different healthy meals for this week coming.  I will post recipes and verdicts as I try them!  :)

Go you!!!
I too am in a weight loss 'journey' (God I hate that word!), and have been finding it really difficult! I cam off the diet the last month, but I have now booked our holiday, so with something to work towards I am back on the diet wagon!

I think you've done amazingly well and I will copying some of your meals!! x
