Weekly Update! 2 stone down...

Hi lovelies :)

Weigh in day this morning, and another pound gone :) Which equals two stone in total since I started Weight Watchers on the 28 June! I'm pleased, and I can really see a difference now, especially in odd places like my shoulders and back. Lots of people are complimenting me, which feels great, and not only do my old clothes fit me, but they're starting to get too big! Shame I'm utterly broke and can't afford new ones just yet...

I still have 4 1/2 stone to lose to get within the healthy BMI range for my height, which seems like a huge mountain to climb. but I know I can do it. In the almost 4 months I've been on the Weight Watchers plan I've only put on weight one week, and that was only half a pound. But if I keep losing a pound a week and carry on going in the right direction I'll get there eventually! Maybe this time next year I'll be reaching goal...

In the meantime, I only have 4 pounds to lose to have lost 15% of my starting weight, so I am going to put in a huge effort over the next two weeks and hopefully reach that. 1 pound a week seems like slow going, but I know there's more I can do to speed that up. So I am going to track everything I eat, stick religously to 30 points a day and up the exercise - wish me luck!

How have you done this week?



  1. I have to say I don't know what a stone is, but well done you! :D Keep going :D

  2. Woohoo Helly, way to go! Keep up the good work. I guess the new PP program is the same over there as it is over here? We just don't get as much in the way of the WW pre packed stuff here. Anyway keep up the good work.

    Maren a stone is 14 pounds.

  3. @Fatoutofskinny I think the PP plans are similar, they're worked out on protein, carbs, fat and fibre instead of calories. I think WW have been doing it that way for about a year. It's working for me so I'm not complaining! WW do have quite a lot of their own branded foods, but some of them are no better than supermarket versions and often twice the price! I really only use the sausages and sometimes their yogurts, but I'm sure there are other things that are just as good I could use instead!

    @Maren A stone is 14 pounds or 6.4 kilos :)
