Next Phase In My Weight Loss Journey

It's been 11 weeks since I started on my lose one pound a week weight loss goal and I've lost 10 pounds so far. The past 3 weeks I saw a slow down as old habits crept in. Weekends are especially hard because I don't cook during weekends. We either go out or we eat takeout which usually adds up to a lot more food then when I cook.

So now I'm going to start with a new base. 145 pounds and I'm going on my next phase of losing 10 pounds in 10 weeks. So, hopefully by end of September I would reach my new goal. This time I invited some online friends to join me to keep myself on my toes. Yup! Group support, encouragement and inspiration will help a lot. So that's what I will be doing.

I'm doing well so far, no hunger pangs (well, not too much), no pills, no artificial foods. Everything is natural and slowly but surely I will reach my goal. I'm looking at my calendar and thinking that if I keep at this, I will be able to buy myself a new pretty dress for Christmas this year. Yippee! Pin It

Excuses! Excuses! Excuses!

No weight loss to report this week but a weight gain! Now the weight is 147 pounds. Seems like 145 is illusive for now.

What is the excuse? Its school holidays and with the kids home, every time I make tea for them, I eat it too. Teas include piping hot pancakes with cold ice-cream to tease the palate. Help!

I even went and bought more salads to stock up the fridge but those teas! And to be honest, I ate normal meals too for some lunches and dinners. I've become lazy and lost some willpower.

I shall not be derailed from my goal! Chant 3 times and let's get back to it! Pin It

No Weight Loss This Week

No weight loss to report this week.

I started the week at 146 pounds. This week I was careless with my diet. Its not that I binged or anything like that. I still ate little but I did not eat VERY little. By mid week, I had gained 3 pounds erasing my 10 pound weight loss. Gosh! It is so difficult to lose weight but so easy to gain it!

So by mid week, I quickly filled my fridge with lots of greens and resorted or went back to eating grass salads and finally, I lost back the 3 pounds so I am back to square 1 at 146 by the end of the week.

When losing weight, it is important to track it or else it is too easy to gain back what you lost so easily.

That's all for this week. Until next week, it is onward and upwards, I mean downwards..... Pin It
