Weekly Weigh In - 15% less Helly!


Another 1 1/2lbs down this morning, taking me to a grand total of 32 1/2lbs lost since I started Weight Watchers at the end of June. This also means I have lost 15% of my starting weight :) I was hoping for a little bit more (3lbs would have meant another half stone gone, but there's always next week). I have been exercising lots, and I am feeling leaner, even if the scales aren't going down as much as I'd like. But, muscle is heavier than fat after all. A loss is a loss, I'll happily take it :)

It also means that for the first time (that I can remember anyway, certainly since I was a teenager) I weigh less than 14 stone (a stone is 14lbs for my international friends!). Ok, so it's only by 1/2 a pound, but I am not going back over that 14 stone mark EVER AGAIN. I will not allow it. Even if I get pregnant with triplets and they discover that obesity is good for you, I will never weigh more than I do now. Exciting!

Another positive, this morning I found my collarbones! Seems they've been hiding right where they should be under a load of disgusting fat! Who'da thunk it?

How have you all done?



  1. Woohoo! And congrats on the collar bones!

  2. Holy Cow Helly - that is fantastic! 15% is a great achievement!! Glad you translated stones, because I seriously never understood that :p

    Hooray for collar bones!!

  3. woohoo & congats on your 15% & collar bones -- that is just awesomeness!

    and i am with maren -- stones just baffle my brains -- so thanks for the comparison!
