A better week

So another Tuesday night is over and done with which means another weekly weigh in has happened!    After a couple of fairly shit weeks for the plan I am a bit more back on track this week and feel really happy tonight.

It’s not been a perfect week but I think I’ve realised now that the perfect week is always going to be very challenging as I continued to battle my food addiction.   That being said I have had 4 out of 7 days where I have done the plan correctly and I’ve put in some good shifts at the gym to increase my exercise levels.

I was really worried going into class this week that I had not lost the target of 4lb that I set last week.   I think if I had not lost it I would have ended up being pretty pissed off.

But I did.  This week I lost 5lb – so have now hit my next target and lost 71lb – which is 5st 1lb since I started this plan on the 2nd September.

Here is an image I found… the fish below weighs in at 70lb…

70lb

I’m feeling much better and really motivated to keep going – I’m going to start my 8 weeks maintenance when I hit 9st and am now just over half way towards my target weight.   With just 2 more weeks till Christmas I am hoping that I can go into Christmas day being under 16st.. which could even happen next week if I have another good week and build upon what I’ve done this week.

So here’s a target update to finish off todays post.
