So as you can see, my weight loss has slowed a little, but it is still progressing, as I have now lost 35 lbs/2 ½ stones/15.87 kgs. Not bad eh?!
Weight loss is often called a journey as it has bumps in the road and of course, I am going to be honest and share mine with you. September was a funny month for me as I struggled to focus on Weight Watchers due to my impending secondment to London. Overall I lost 3.5lbs, which is good and so I am not going to beat myself up too much.
My secondment started just over 2 weeks ago and again, my Weight Watchers is a little harder to stick with as I am away from home and can’t cook. But to try and allay too much damage I have fallen into the following routine:
Breakfast in my Travelodge: 2 x pieces of brown toast with a small amount of Jam on each & fruit salad & a cup of tea.
Lunch: A Boots Shapers Sandwich with a low fat packet of crisps.
Evening Meal: Various
So as you can see, I mostly do OK, but it’s the evening meals that are tricky. In our first week in London, as I am working with a group of other staff members from around the UK, we all did something together most nights. However this week, we all did our own thing. There are also MANY temptations throughout the day as our group are feeders and there has been cake and biscuits every single day. I haven’t had one, although I have had the odd Percy pig when I was struggling a bit with energy.
One thing I did come across in my Timehop App, was a still from a vlog I did a couple of years ago and I really noticed the change in my face:
So even though my weight loss has slowed, there have been semi-unusual circumstances and I HAVE managed to keep it going. But of course I couldn’t finish this blog without sharing my amazing London Bridge victory!
One thing you might not know about me is that I have got NO sense of direction!! So I am double chuffed that I managed to find my way from my hotel over a mile to London Bridge.. AND BACK!! Might not sound like a big deal, but I did this in rush hour AND I get lost in the Trafford Centre! Happy days! #walking #exercise #pretty #theshard #instaphoto #lost
and I really wouldn’t have had the confidence or fitness to do this at the beginning of May. Go me. x
