Sunday Weigh in: Week 2

So here we are again, another Sunday, another weigh in closer to my August of weddings and trying to look fabulousish!

Start weight: 9st 2lbs
Target weight: 8st 8lbs
This week: 0.5lb loss
Total loss: 3.5lb
Current weight: 8st 13.5lb
BMI: 23.12 (target 22)

I haven’t set the world on fire, but neither have I put anything on, so it’s all good. Half a pound is nothing to be sniffed at when I was only looking to lose 8lbs in the first place.

 I’ve had a week that has consisted of quite a lot of drinks with friends and eating out so once again, keeping a thorough food diary of what I’m eating and drinking provides me with good motivation of when it is time to say “no more”! I had a great bootcamp session this week though, a workout on the stepper and done somewhere in the region of 9 hours on the bike this week, so I think I’m certainly keeping fit enough.

I blame not making it up to a full pound off on the vanilla slice a colleague gave me at work on Friday. It was 325 calories and totally delicious. I think I am happy that I ate it and only lost half than didn’t get to enjoy it and was telling you I am a pound off now. That’s what it’s all about isn’t it, being comfortable with the decisions we make and responsible for their consequences?

In preparation (and hopeless optimism) for the future, does any one know of a good system to trial for maintaining my weight once I reach my goal? There are tonnes of weight loss schemes out there, but would love to review something which helps with maintenance.

Check out my diet buddies progress this week – an awesome week for Jane over at 7hippopotamus and a ‘could be worse’ time of it for Cheryl at Madhouse Family Reviews (who is off on her holibobs now, have a great time!).
