Well, five weeks in, I have lost 9 lbs so far. I'm happy that I'm 4 lbs ahead of schedule but I know I could have done better. If I'm totally honest, I haven't really made any significant changes yet. I'm definitely more conscious of what I'm eating, but not necessarily acting on it!
I've given myself a target weight loss of 2lbs this week, so by Saturday 31st May, I hope to see 11 stone 5 lbs on the scales!
I know this is going to take some effort this week, so absolutely no evening puddings or chocolate. This is both my and Paul's weakness and we're both as bad as each other! We can have a really balanced meal, but then follow it with something high in fat and sugar!
I'm also starting to consider my beauty regime as well with the final 6 month run up to the wedding fast approaching. I've booked my treatments already for the 18th December, 2 days before the wedding which consist of Bee Sting Facial, Eyebrow wax, Shellac manicure and Deluxe pedicure. There is just no point me following a skin routine if I'm going to shovel fat and sugar in my body and not keep hydrated.
I had the pleasure of my other half doing a BodyStat test on my this week and it was absolutely shocking!! I can't actually believe I'm going to publish this information on the internet but it's HUGE motivation for me to achieve my goal this week.......
Body Fat Percentage: 30.3% (should be 20-27%)
Fat Weight: 22.2 kg (that is shocking!)
Water: 48.6% (should be 50-60%)
Ultimately, to me, that says I have a lot of fat and I'm dehydrated.
Exercise for me is also irregular at the moment. With Sophie still only 7 weeks, routine is very difficult. However, I'm also not making the best use of the time when she is asleep. Well, that's not entirely true. I'm currently spending the time she is asleep working. I hope that in the next couple of weeks, I have put things in place to make work more manageable for me and I can use this time to do some exercise.
Sophie has been taking a bottle of expressed milk very well in the last week too, so I also hope that I may be able to get out to an evening class once a week fairly soon too.
I look forward to updating you on Saturday with my 2 lbs loss achieved!
