Week 5 weigh-in

16 May

First, I want to apologise for not posting for the last couple weeks. My 9-5 job has been keeping me way busier than I would like, which unfortunately means a lot of working late and not wanting to type another word once I’m done for the night.

Not that all that is over just yet, but this project is also important to me, so I’m going to try to focus on it a bit more.

So, week four’s weigh-in, which I didn’t post about was an amazing 2.5 pound loss. I’m not sure how I pulled that off, since it was the bank holiday weekend and I wasn’t on my best slimming behaviour for those three days.

The result left me well chuffed and only 1/2 a pound away from my 1/2 stone award, so I really focused for week five.

All of last week I stuck to plan and only once did I waver. I’d gone swimming that morning and worked from home in the day, which meant lots of snacking – all on free food, but carby ones. I also don’t think I got in enough super free that day.

Even better, I started noticing that my clothes were getting looser. So I was expecting an amazing loss.

“Slimmer of the Week”, I tried the title on for size in my imagination and thought of all the lovely free food I would win as my reward for such a great effort.

So imagine my disappointment when I stepped on the scale and saw a measly 1/2 pound loss!

I can only explain it as my penance for the week before.

But why are my trousers feeling so loose? Gosh, bodies are confusing.

I’m going to keep positive though. A loss is a loss and I still came home with my 1/2 stone award, in all its pink sparkly glory!

I’ve also decided to start thinking of the pounds as percentages done – which is an easy calculation, since I’m aiming to lose 100 pounds.

So I’m 7% there. Doesn’t sound too shabby when I put it like that!

How is your weight loss going? What do you do to keep positive after a disappointing weigh in?
