Wink The weight loss issue

I weighed myself this morning and in just 1 week i have lost 8 pounds a great start to chipping off some unwanted weight gain. I guess all the stress at work over the office closure hit me harder than i thought over the last year. Anyway i cut out all the sugar in drinks and switched to skimmed milk and only eating low fat low carb stuff in much smaller portions than i had before. I'm trying to avoid over indulging in potato products too no more crisps only low fat oven chips and boiled potatoes. I'm also avoiding bread it doesn't agree with me even the wholemeal stuff makes me feel off. Combining this with more exercise (my cross trainer every other day until it shows 10 km and alternating this with core strengthening) and buying new scales ( ones that measure your BMI body fat and water percentages and muscle and bone mass) and it has really opened my eyes to how much i gained. So now i have set myself a target of 50 weeks to really do my best to be healthy again.

It's great that people here are in the same situation, it provides me with hope and determination to keep going, i hope everyone here keeps losing a bit each week so they can get to their targets too.

Stayed the same this week .... had a weekend blip with birthday cake for my Mum's birthday and a pasta dish which involved cream so I am not surprised.
At least it wasn't a gain.

I'm trying to stick to my plan and I have lost another 4 pounds off my start weight yay!
Well done to all of you too even those of you who have STS it's good because "muscle is denser than fat" you must be toning up as you go along which is great . I'm battling with English monsoon weather at the moment using memories of WDW to see me through the unpleasantness of working and walking in the 2 day solid downpour we seem to be having , I don't mind the walk home it's the soaking that I object to... Any way keep up the great work and stick with the will power.
