If I think back to last weeks post, I remember saying I'd be extremely happy with a loss of 2lbs this week and 2lbs the week after, meaning I'd reached my first stone. I'd set this in my mine as it seemed easy enough to do.
I'm not entirely sure what happened this week. To say I'm shocked is an understatement Two reasons I felt would massively work against me this week was the fact it was WW and I felt incredibly 'fat'. And it was the last full week on the plan before I got paid so the fridge was looking somewhat bare by the end of it.
When I got on the scales and saw it read 'XX.5' I thought I'd read it wrong. 'Are you staying to group?' the lovely lady who does weigh in asked. 'Yes!' 'I'll keep your book then, well done on your 1 stone'. I couldn't believe. I'd craved chocolate and sweet things so unbelievably bad and what with being bloated, I'd sure I'd put on or perhaps lose just 1lb.
I still find it hard to wrap my head around the fact that I can eat so much and not feel guilty about a single thing, yet still lose weight.
The first day I went to group I asked my Dad to help me take a whole bunch of measurements. I opted on redoing it 4 weekly so I can see how much has changed over a month, it really helps to see small changes you might not notice until they really start showing.
So before group on Wednesday I remeasured and these were my results
Upper arm: -4cmNeck: -2cm
I was so so happy with those. Such a difference to my first measurements. Also I'm not sure if I mentioned it in a previous post but I definitely did other places but I could tell before I measured that most of it was going from my waist as it looked tiny in comparison to my hips.
I've yet to do any exercise/body magic, besides my everyday walking etc. But I'm hoping to change that side of things shortly. It really goes to show that just changing what you eat can have a massive impact on your body.
