Free Skinny Me – Weeks 4 & 5

Last week was a really busy week, and although I did weigh myself, I really struggled to motivate myself to blog about it.

I find that I am really struggle to motivate myself in all aspects to be honest. I have got so much to do in the run up to Christmas, and the children being off school that its slightly overwhelming and I don’t know where to start.

But, I am determined to try and stay on my Free Skinny Me track and lose the weight!

Have you been following Tania over at Larger Family Life on her journey? She is doing really well, despite lacking in the motivation department too! However, we both fully intend to kick start things good and proper in the new year!!

So, these are my last 2 weeks results!

Starting Weight: 12st 2lbs (170lbs)
 
Week 4 Result: Stayed the Same
Week 5 Result: Loss of 1lb

Current Weight: 11st 10lbs

Mini Goal: To lose 21lbs (1st 7lbs) by Christmas

Goal Weight: 8st 7lbs (119lbs)

Total to Lose: 3st 9lbs (51lbs)

 
Total Lost to Date: 6lbs

I am getting there…slowly but surely!

"Free Skinny Me" – Week 3

I know, I know, I am a day late with my WiW this week. Was a bit manic here yesterday having all 3 children at home that I kinda forgot to blog my weight.

The past 2 weeks I have seemed to have done really well on my mission to “Free Skinnny Me”.

It really does help having Tania over at Larger Family Life doing this along side me as I get really motivated when I see how well she has done!!

This week hasn’t been a big as a success as the previous 2. I have still lost, but not a lot. The week has been a bit stressful (more so than usual).

But I am determined to get back on track, and to blooming remember to log my food!! Someone please shout at me every day to remind me! I even have the push notifications sent to me from my WW app but I’m so slack I get weigh-layed and end up forgetting!

Anyhow, this weeks results are:

Starting Weight: 12st 2lbs (170lbs)

Week 3 Result: Loss of 1lb

Current Weight: 11st 11lbs

Mini Goal: To lose 21lbs (1st 7lbs) by Christmas

Goal Weight: 8st 7lbs (119lbs)

Total to Lose: 3st 9lbs (51lbs)

Total Lost to Date: 5lbs

"Free Skinny Me" – Week 2

So last week, “Free Skinny Me” – Week 1 went really well!!

I was really chuffed to have been able to lose 2lbs, although I really do suck at logging what I eat.

I still haven’t managed to log anything this week! (told you I’m crap!). I have cut out the amount of biscuits, chocolate and sugar I have. I try to eat breakfast but it doesn’t always happen.

Exercise front, is a bit of a no go at the moment. I just can’t find the time! Poor excuse I know.

So, what’s happened this week……

ANOTHER 2lb loss!! Wohoo!!

Starting Weight: 12st 2lbs (170lbs)

"Free Skinny Me" – Week 1

So last week I decided to join Tania over at Larger Family Life in her quest to find the “Skinny Me”.

Operation “Free Skinny Me” began!

I decided to join up to Weight Watchers to help. I have the app downloaded on my phone so its easy to add what I’ve eaten to the daily diary (well, it is when I remember!).

I haven’t religiously stuck to the diet this week. I find it really hard to get into it, but have managed to cut down on crisps, biscuits and chocolate! I have allowed myself a little treat now and then just to fight off those cravings! I’m also trying to cut down the amount of sugar I have in my tea.

My big problem is that I am not a breakfast fan! I can quite happily go through the day without eating anything until lunch time (or even dinner time some days!). I know that’s not great, so I am trying to remember to eat something in the morning.

Here is the breakdown for Week One:

Starting Weight: 12st 2lbs (170lbs)

Week 1 Result: Loss of 2lbs 🙂

Current Weight: 12st

Mini Goal: To lose 21lbs (1st 7lbs) by Christmas

Goal Weight: 8st 7lbs (119lbs)

Total to Lose: 3st 9lbs (51lbs)

Total Lost to Date: 2lbs

Free Skinny Me

A few days ago I was going through my news feed on Twitter and read a post by Tania over at Larger Family Life.

Tania is starting a diet to lose her post baby weight and was looking for people to join in to help motivate each other.

I am usually really crap at dieting (and exercise). I lose motivation really quickly and struggle if I don’t have anyone there to push me further and actually do something. I decided to join Tania in her quest to ‘Free Skinny Me’.

The diet starts TODAY! So, I shall call this WiW (Weigh in Wednesday).

I have bitten the bullet and signed up to Weight Watchers too! I am determined to lose my baby weight, most of which is still being carried from my first pregnancy 6 years ago!!

Here are my Vitals:

Current Weight: 12st 2lbs (170lbs) Eeek!! I’m just under 5ft 4inch tall so I am overweight for my frame.

Mini Goal: To lose 21lbs (1st 7lbs) by Christmas – just under 7wks time!!!

Goal Weight: 8st 7lbs (119lbs)

Total to Lose: 3st 9lbs (51lbs)

P has decided that he will join me too (perhaps writing it all down and logging it will help both of us to lose weight!). I shall add his vitals later when he is home from work!

Every Wednesday there will be a post about how well (or not so well) we have done each week!

Please head over to Tania’s page too and see how well she does!

Wish me Luck!!!

Added:

P Vitals:

Current Weight: 16st 7lbs. He’s around 6ft/6ft1 tall and has quite a ‘bulky’ frame.

Mini Goal: to lose 1 Stone (14lbs) by Christmas.

Goal Weight: 14st.
He did originally say 13st, but I think he’d look rather silly at that weight.

Total to Lose: 2st 7lbs (35lbs)

P is going to use Slim Fast Shakes to help him (I can’t stand them otherwise I’d do the same!!)
