Back on the Weight Loss Wagon...

....after spectacularly falling off and then being crushed under the wheels of the darn wagon I am back up and riding shot gun to boot!

I am pretty annoyed with myself to be honest as I feel I have (as usual) wasted time making excuses as to why I have not stuck to my eating plan and have instead reverted to my preferred eating plan of chocolate, diet coke and wotsits. I only have until November to reach my goal and it is ME that has sabotaged it! I could / should today be typing that I am now at least nearly two stone ahead of my starting weight!

By luck and good luck alone I have only put 1.5lbs back on in with debauched  eating, I can claim no credit for it but I am relieved all the same!

Today is a new day and I feel in control! I will check back in in a few days to update on my week!

A Terrible Week..

.. one and a half pounds on! I have been eating less than maintenance calories and so should have at the very least I should have maintained! To be honest I have been quite poorly this week with extreme fatigue and a very upset stomach - this at the very least should have ensured a weight loss!

I feel too rough to even be that pissed off! Looking forward to losing next week with any luck!

p.s Pene! The extension belt fitted and I am slendertoning myself to death!

I Think We're Alone Now...

.... I really loved that song by Tiffany! Yes I am a gerry (atric)!
My disguise! You have to suffer to be beautiful apparently!

It feels really odd to have a stand alone blog for my weight loss! I have over 750 followers on my craft blog but the thought of putting 'before' aka 'now' pictures up for my lovely craft friends seemed a tad cruel! Sewing machines and crochet hooks across the nation would be brought to a traumatised standstill! Handmade would be wiped from the dictionary! So here I am, a lonley fat billy no mates! Hero to Zero!

Into the 14 's! Week Three!

Another 2 : 5lb off! Very excited to be in the 14st again after mysteriously slipping into the 15's without even noticing! I have had a much harder week than in previous weeks, mainly due to the fact that I have had major sweet cravings! On a couple of days I ate sweets and chocolate all day but still managed to stay withing the calorie allowance - by the skin of my teeth!

I have used my vibration plate (not to be confused with vibration toy ladies ;-D) for ten minutes a day. Not sure how much it helps but it is an experience in its self when all your spare body fat is flung into a shaking frenzy that is a bit pins and needles. Warning! Do not get on the machine with a full bladder as you will be jumping off and dashing to the loo with seconds to spare!

Many of you may know that I have a BSc Degree in Health Science - basically healthy research, health promotion and understanding health behaviors. I specialised in Women and Body Image and my dissertation (research project) was 'A Weight On My Mind - Women and Body Image' - I collected data from over one hundred and twenty women. I am going to fish it out in February and  see if there are any interesting bits to share. The gist of the outcome was that women felt fat regardless of their actual weight!

Week 1 Weigh-in!

Weight loss for the week ~ 4lb
New Weight ~ 15st 3lb
Total Lost ~ 4lb

Yay! Four Pounds Off!!!! I was very pleased with this although I know that the first 2 weeks usually give the best results due to fluid loss etc. Mind you who gives a shit, I still register less on the scales!!

I have decided to do a weekly weigh-in although to be honest I am a bit worried that I may not lose weigh on a weekly basis after the two week honeymoon period. I have worked really hard and have done quite a bit of exercise every day.

Muscle Burns More Calories....

... and as I am limited in what I can do for exercise I decided to buy a Slendertone belt. I reckoned that if I could just use one of these on a daily basis I could eventually boost my weightloss! What a big mistake! Bigger even than my chunky trunk! Charged it up in anticipation and went to strap the device to my girth and bugger me I was too bloody massive for it to fit!

Too fucking fat for Slendertone!  Was I beaten, no! After all I had opened the box and so was stuck with my £160 waist trimming tool. I got on line and ordered the 'extension belt'. yep they do make them although chubsters like me have to search the tinternet high and low to find it! I swear I used up about 200 calories just finding the bloody thing. I am eagerly awaiting its arrival, actually that is a lie, I a worriedly anticipating its arrival. The extension is only 3 inches in length which if it were some kind of penile extension would be very exciting and certainly a substantial addition but three inches around the waist - should i have ordered two ... ..or even three!
