Sunday Weigh In 20

It's now been 20 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 I've been better at doing a bit more exercise as we've had a couple of semi-dry days!  I do feel better when I walk to work so hopefully it will stay dry and I will not succumb to the temptation of driving to work to avoid soggy-ness!  Think I've had a bit too much cheese again though but it's one of my biggest weaknesses and as Nik's been working late shifts I've been having lazy dinners by myself.

And the results this week:

Weight last week - 12 st 4 lbs
Weight this week - 12 st 4 1/2 lbs
Loss/Gain this week - + 1/2 lb

Total Loss - -13 1/2 lbs

I seem to be stuck at around this weight which I am grateful for since I haven't been trying as hard lately.  At least I haven't ballooned back up again!  Still searching for my motivation to get back into my exercise routine but now it's drier (for now anyway) it's easier already with the walking to work.
