Weekly Weigh In: Week #13

Sunday 31 August 2014

I know, I know... I've been gone for over a month. I'm sorry! August was a very, VERY busy month for me. I went to Summer in the City, it was my Boyfriends Birthday and then I had a whole WEEK off of work and I've been relaxing. I promise I'm going to get better at blogging more regularly!

Anyway since my last weigh in my weight had been up and down all over the place, what with having a few cheeky weekends and then a whole week off of dieting. I've also noticed that the 5:2 diet doesn't seem to be working for me any more. That's not to say it's a bad diet, because it helped me kickstart my weightloss in the first place. Actually the problem is me. Tell me I only have to diet on two days a week and I will, and then on those other days (despite my best efforts) I ended up snacking a lot in between meals, and generally filling myself with rubbish!

So I've decided enough is enough. I am going on a completely calorie controlled diet, and I'm going to be trying this for a month to see how I get on, and then I may add a couple of weeks of 5:2 in between if my weightloss slows down. Now I'm not going to be dieting all week, as I know it would be far too hard for me on the weekends. so instead what I am going to do is aim for 1,200 calories Mon-Fri, and then eat 1,800-2,000 on weekends, and see how it goes. I'm also going to be completely cutting out sweets, fizzy drinks, chocolate and alcohol, only allowing myself one of these four things on my weekend 'normal' days. I know this is going to be really tough and I'm going to hate it, but I know that I need to do something about my weight now before it is too late.

Now for the weigh in results:

Start Weight: 198.8 Ibs
Target Weight: 145 Ibs
Weight this week: 191.4 Ibs
Weight loss this week: + 3.2 Ibs
Total Weight loss: 7.4 Ibs
Weight still to lose: 46.4 Ibs

Obviously it's not great that I've put on 3.2 Ibs since the last weigh in, but considering that I've had a couple of weeks off of the diet, and pretty much ate what I wanted to, I'm impressed that I haven't put on more!

This week's goals:

1. Drink water only Mon-Fri
2. Cut out most fizzy drinks, chocolate, sweets and alcohol. (only allowing myself ONE of these at the weekend)
3. Log everything I eat on My Fitness Pal app, every, single thing!
