On Tuesday evening after walking 45 mins a day for 14 days (and feeling quite knackered) I went to my usual WW meeting hoping and wanting to lose 700gm. I wanted to hit 5kg and come close to hitting my 5% mark. Imagine my excitement when I weighed in at 1.9kg lighter! I was thrilled to see how all that exercise had paid off. I have lost a total of 6.2kg (13.9lb) and I have also lost 5% of my starting weight. I lifted a 5kg bag of rice at the supermarket and it is heavy! No wonder I feel and move better! And look better – my reflection no longer makes me wince. My clothes are becoming baggier and looser and it’s nearly time to go down a size. This is hugely exciting for a fattie whose clothes sizes have only gone up for a long time. Very soon I might not have any X’s in front of my L.Β  Ohhhh.


(I have to admit that I expect a not so good weigh in this coming Tuesday – it’s been a bad and busy week. But right now I’m celebrating these two successes for what they are – huge.)

    YAY!!!! Congratulations! You’re inspiring me; maybe I’ll get off my butt and do something physical. But it’s so SO SO HOT here. πŸ™‚

    Congrats on making that first 5%, Steph!! I know it feels nice for clothes to begin to be looser.

    Bethie’s right, change your habits *right now* so that you don’t dread your weigh-in Tuesday. It’s all about balance. You can’t change what you did yesterday or the day before, but you *can* change what you do the rest of today and tomorrow :).

    By the way, walking 45 minutes a day is something to be proud of, no matter what the scale says!!

  8. Yay! congrats, that is great and what a nice suprise, although if you are doing all that walking it can’t be too much of a suprise. Well done keep it up.

  9. Congratulations! I’ve been thinking about joining WW, you’re getting me inspired.

    You are doing so incredibly well with the weight loss – congratulations!!!! I think the idea of rewarding yourself as you reach your goals is a brilliant one. I have been on the infertility journey myself and wish you all the best.
