Late Weigh In

Bit late in the day for my usual Sunday weigh in this week, due to being away visiting my grandparents at the weekend and generally having a bit of a nasty cold. So I wasn’t really expecting miracles, but after attending the gym and a step class yesterday, I thought I’d jump on the scales this morning, just to see.

And what do you know?

Start weight: 9st 2lbs
Target weight: 8st 8lbs
This week: -1lb
Total loss: -8lb
Current weight: 8st 7lb
BMI: 21.99 (target 22)

I done it! I have reached my weight loss goal! Since beginning to lose the weight that I gained since quitting smoking I have been on a concerted weightloss journey for about 7 months. I have been enjoying the support of my lovely Diet blogger buddies for about 4 months (thanks ladies!) and in total I have lost 7 kilos since May taking me to my target weight (the start weight above was calculated when I started blogging about things).

I’m very pleased with myself. I’ve worked hard and I feel like I’ve made sustainable lifestyle changes – but not too many! I am sat here with a glass of wine right now actually, but I did cycle to town earlier just to go to zumba, then cycled straight back, so it all seems to be balancing out.

Now begins the true test, the bit that no-one ever really seems to blog about – maintaining a healthy weight. For that reason, I intend to keep going with my weekly weigh ins, at least at first, so I can track my progress. My healthy weight range is anywhere within the 8 stone region – so I am exactly in the centre at the moment. I can suffer to lose a couple more pounds, but not too many more. My goal now is to get myself more toned. Who knows, maybe even a crop top next Spring to celebrate my 30th birthday?

PS. Take that Fat Belly!
