I normally write this post on a Wednesday morning, usually while the boy has a nap. However, I have decided to write this weeks update on Tuesday night; partly due to the boy currently dropping his morning nap and partly due the the fact that I am so excited about this weeks weigh in that I can’t wait to write it down.
This week I needed to lose 1lb to reach my 2 stone award. I am in fact proud to say that I lost 4lb! So I got my 2 Stone award and I have also reached my Club 10, that is to say I’ve lost 10% of my weight. All in all I’ve lost 2 Stone 3lb (31lb) so far.
So OK, I have to admit, I have no idea how I did so well this week. I went to a friends for a girly night in on Saturday with all the best intentions (bottle of Diet Coke, box of grapes etc) but she had done the most lovely spread of nibbles and picky bits and well whats a girl to do? Before I knew it I had a glass of wine in one hand, a mini duck spring roll in the other and am passing judgement on what colours suit/don’t suit Cat Deeley! It was a great night!
I think the weekends can be the worst time for slip ups like this, when even the very very best intentions can and do get thrown out the window. I think I was able to counteract Saturday night buy having an angelic Sunday (filled I might have with a fry up – well a grill up, all on plan – yum yum!) We’ve got another outing this Saturday. Our neighbours have invited us round for an “at home Wine Tasting Evening” (that is, a wine tasting run by a proper company – not just a bunch of us supping wine and going “mm yes, like this one, pass another bottle”). I don’t know about an angelic Sunday, I think I’m going to have to be Gabriel himself all week to counteract that one. Hmmm.
Anyway, to targets. As I explained last week we only ever set our own targets at Slimming World. I don’t actually know what my ideal weight would be. I don’t know and at the moment I don’t really care to think about it. Working out just how much I have to lose would do nothing, except possibly make me cry! So my targets are my own and bit by bit I’ll get there. I promised last week that I’d set myself a new target if I reached my original interim target of 2 Stone tonight. I have so I will. My next target is to lose another 1.5 stone, and it’d be nice, although not essential, to do this by Christmas. For those who knew me back then, that will make me roughly the same as when I was Bridesmaid for Rachel in 2005.
I was so happy with my result tonight. 2 Stone, Club 10, oh and I got Slimmer of the Week.
I’ve got so many stickers I’ve had to start putting them on the other side of my book. What a shame 😉
