New Pound!

I have finally, after a month and eight days, lost a new lb!  It may only be one so far, but it's sure to be more!  I had about 10 evil gained lbs to lose from my gluttonous month (new relationship and a huge love of Haribo = fatty Mari).  To reach a new low is a wonderful, fabulous thing, so I do not care that it is not weigh in day and that today was the first day I saw the new number, I'm taking it as mine!

Starting Weight: 17st9lbs (247lbs)
Current Weight: 14st12lbs (208lbs)
Total Loss: 39lbs!!!

Almost at the 40lb lost mark!  I had wanted to have lost 40lbs by my 4 month anniversary which was 13 days ago, but alas, I had a month of eating like I hadn't a care in the world, and I haven't been to the gym for a month either.  So I am lucky to be where I am.  I also kind of feel humbled by it.  My latest fill is kicking my arse, and I'm slowly learning what I can and can't eat, discovering the my band is tighter in the morning, that it's not a good idea to eat anything before having a nice hot cup of tea and to STOP! as soon as I feel full or I will PB.  There have been many pb sessions this past week and a half but they are getting less frequent as I adjust to a completely new, very slow, very minimal way of eating.  But it's great.  What I wanted was to not be able to eat as much.  And I really can't eat as much as I would love to be able to sometimes.  Hopefully this support will get me back on track.  My goal for tomorrow is to get back in the gym.  I've got to.  I miss it.  But I'm kind of scared of how much my fitness levels may have slipped back.  You may remember that a couple of months ago I managed to run for 11 minutes straight.  Not sure I'll be doing that tomorrow, but I'm aiming for 5 minutes.  I think a lot of it is psychological.

Was lovely to hear from you all in your comments on my last post, thank you - and hopefully, gradually, you'll be getting comments from me.  Big love x


  1. Well congrats on 39lbs! And good for you to getting back on track. It feels good huh!


  2. Good for you for getting yourself back on track

  3. Great job!!!! Its hard to get back to the gym, I know exactly what you're talking about. But your fitness level isn't going to get any better if you don't do anything - we've all gotta start somewhere, right?? I know you can do it! And congrats on 39lbs my love - you are doing AWESOME!! Everything happens in it's own time, and I've discovered that if you do what you know you need to do with food and exercise, your body will let go of the weight - it never worked for me to assign a certain number of pounds down by a certain date, so I just stopped putting those kinds of restrictions on things. It's going to take what it takes, and the time it takes! I can make it go a bit faster if I do what I'm supposed to, but ultimately, it will happen....so glad to hear you're so happy and in love - it's a wonderful time!! Hugs!

  4. Great job losing your new relationship weight and seeing a new low!

    Let us know how the workout goes. :)
