Feel Fab Friday - Weightloss and Fabulousness 17/04/15


This is going to be my place where I record my weekly weightloss.  I have slowly crept up to my heaviest weight for a long time and need to do something about it.

I'm in a bit of a vicious circle at the moment - I'm stressed so I eat, I eat so I'm stressed.  I'm having a bit of a tough time with the babies - they are completely wrecking my house.  This gets me down, as I'm quite house proud. I find myself eating quick things, mainly chocolate, to make myself feel better, but I just hate the way I look and I'm on self-destruct mode.
 
This morning I got weighed and recorded the results here.
 
 
I'm too embarrassed to tell you what I weigh, but would like to lose 33 lbs.  I'm not putting a timescale on it either, because I don't want to set myself up to fail.  I'm in no rush.
 
The plan I follow when dieting is Weight Watchers.  I follow the old plan from about 10 years ago and will start off with 26 points a week. I will drop this down by 1 point for every 7lb I lose and see how I go.
 
If you would like to join me on this journey, I will be posting updates when I can on my Instagram account here.
 
If you'd like me to do a linky to share your story too, let me know and I'll set one up, if there's enough interest. For now, I think I'll try the free simply linked one to see how it goes.
 
You can also find out more about my Feel Fab initiative at Feel Fab '15 - The place where I talk about nice things and beauty.  It's looking a bit unloved at the minute though, as I am living under a cloud with no fabulousness in sight.
 
This will hopefully change from today though.

  1. Good luck with your weight loss. I think it's fantastic way to keep motivated by posting like this. I hope you get lots of support and inspiration from the blogging community. I think it's really sensible to take it slowly too. Loosing weight is tough especially after the first couple of weeks so not expecting too much too soon will hopefully make it more achievable. Good luck again! X

  2. Hey chick - how are you getting on this week? Weight Watchers is a great diet to kick start your weight loss journey - personally I prefer it over Slimming World and when the WW food is on offer stock up. My freezer is full at the moment! I love the weight slate you have, that will definitely keep you spurred on - I have 35lbs to lose... hopefully by the end of the year. Keep on at it, keep your chin up and don't forget we are all in the same boat and here to support you! Thanks for joining up with #WeightLossWednesday - hopefully some of the other blogs will help keep you inspired! :) Sim xx
