Well I have only gone and done it – just over a stone lost in eight weeks! I am rather pleased with myself, it is really hard but I have stuck with Weightwatchers and I will continue to do so. It’s definitely more of a lifestyle change and not just a diet. Weight loss is the ultimate goal but healthier and happier are certainly the key to sucess.
The weightwatchers diet has a measure of the good the bad and the ugly:
● The good – I am on a steady weight loss, I am changing my food choices for the better, I feel healthier and my clothes are becoming loser.
● The bad – it is a restrictive diet, I have to be fully planned and prepared to be successful each week, and going out to eat can be a complete nightmare for smartpoints.
● The ugly – I have craving and I miss certain foods, I hate the fact my other half can just eat what he want and does not realise how hard I find it some days, its just pure jealousy on my part!
My weight loss has been realatively steady, I lost the most weight in my first week and have been losing one to two pounds each week since. I started at 12st 8lbs and I am now down to 11st 7lbs. I do not think you can see any difference yet!
I am still a size 16 (UK) but my clothes are fitting better then before – I was probably stretching a size 16 to be honest but was in denial about needing the next size up. I have a couple of larger size 14 tops which are also now fitting. I have quite a few size 14 that I can definitely not get into but hopefully soon!
I take weekly measurements but I’m not sure how accurate I am with them. Some measurements are staying the same where as others are dropping every so slightly, and some fluctuate up and down constantly. I also think breastfeeding affects some of the measurements. I will keep the measurements going as I’m sure the less I weigh the differences will become more steady and easier to track.
Our little Bebe bunch are going back home to my family for a holiday in just four weeks, I was hoping for a noticeable difference before then but I do not think that is going to happen. So I will have to wait for the next visit before I can wow them with my weight loss!
For now it is onward and hopefully inwards!
