Edit: I usually have my scales set to lbs rather than stones, worked out my weight from that but when I changed the settings to stones I suddenly weighed more so I’ve since reset and this is my new goal..
If you followed my Christmas Countdown vlogs you will know that I was approached by Weight Watchers recently along with several other bloggers to join up to their program for the New Year. Now I’ll admit I wasn’t all too thrilled to be targeted by a company asking me to lose weight (lol) but I’ve made no secret of wanting to shape up after baby number 2 and I figured weight loss would be a popular topic for most of you given that January Gym Memberships hit an annual high. Everybody resolves to eat better and exercise, right? Well I don’t feel that I have lot of weight to lose but my thighs could stand to be firmer and my midsection has always been a ‘problem area’ so I will be following WW’s ‘Pro Points’ scheme along with regular visits to the gym and I’ll be documenting my experience. If nothing else I’m hoping that doing this alongside fellow bloggers will motivate me to keep it up. There are a few things I’d really like to cut out, Fizzy drinks is one, I have a real addiction to carbonated soda’s, Diet Coke specifically. I know they don’t make me feel good and I want to switch to dilute or fruit juice, I also want to add more fruit and veg to my diet. They’re my 2 initial goals and I figure if I ‘start small’ as WW suggest I wont feel the difference, I’m not one to binge on sweets and chocolates so it’s not huge grind for me it’s more the effort of preparing fresh meals everyday but I may have found a solution for that.. look out for a healthy eating post for lazy girls very soon!
Current Weight: 8st 13lbs
First Goal: 8st 6.7lbs
I know from experience that these posts can be controversial, especially when revealing my weight but please be aware that people carry weight differently. I may appear to be the same weight as someone that is a lot lighter or heavier than me. Some of you will read my weight and think I shouldn’t be looking to lose anything and some will think I have to lots to go but I am 5’2” with a short body and long legs, my weight sits primarily around my midsection and upper half and that’s what I’d like to work on. I do not want to appear to be sending the message that all girls at my weight need to lose something as this is not the case.
