Weight Loss Diaries #4

So, I got weighed this morning and I have lost 1 pound. This is in about three weeks.

Now, you would be well within your rights to say, why post that? A pound is nothing, really, is it? If I’d got weighed after breakfast then the scales probably wouldn’t have even been as kind.

But, in June last year I was 15 stones 10, I am now 14 stone 1. I am really really proud of that. Yes, by now I could have easily reached my target if I’d tried. Definitely. But still, I am SO much more happy to be the weight I am now rather than the weight I was then, that’s for sure!

And losing weight isn’t just about the figures on the scales.

I only own two pairs of jeans. My favourites are from French Connection and I got them for a song in the sale. Before I got married, they were hanging off me. After I got married and I had put on a stone (half a stone of which I put on during a one week all-inclusive cruise – EVIL!!) they still fit but felt a bit snug. When I tried them on after having Gwenn, I couldn’t get them on. I don’t mean that they wouldn’t zip up; I mean they literally wouldn’t pull up past my thighs.

Last week, I decided to try them on again … AND THEY FIT!

So, yes, I could have done better. But that doesn’t mean I’m not really chuffed with what I have achieved (although obviously all of this could have been avoided if I hadn’t eaten for 17 when I was pregnant!)

Before I go, here are my stats so far:

Current weight: 14 stones 1 pound

Weight lost this week: 1 pound

Weight lost so far: 1 stone 9 pounds

And yesterday we found my pedometer in the depths of Gwenn’s room so, as if next week, my steps stats will be back!!!

When you are trying to lose weight, are you old-school and stick with the scales or do you measure your results in a different way? I’d love to hear your story!
