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!!!
