Wednesday Weigh In

You may have noticed that I haven't felt like sharing much the last week or so. I have been quite under the weather. 

I've been sleeping almost constantly, in a very low mood and food has been causing me pain. I know I should go to the Dr, but I just hate going. I always end up crying, I feel like I am up in front of the Headmaster, when I haven't really done anything wrong. I've watched my diet carefully, as I'm diabetic, I can't go without food all together. 

Today I am feeling better, but a blood glucose reading of 16.7 may be the reason I am feeling poorly.........probably should have checked earlier in the week.

Anyhoo, this is not a 'begging for pity' post. I just wanted you to know that my head and body have been truly shot, this past week, and that is why I have not written much.

So back to it. Mostly sticking to plan has resulted in a..

2.5lb

Weight loss.

Add to that, the 0.5 loss from last week and I have managed to lose my 1st stone!! (To anyone that doesn't speak in stones this is 14lb or just over 6kg).

Even better than that though, I am starting to notice a bit of wiggle room in some of my clothes. My head does not feel like I have lost weight, but the scales and my clothes say otherwise.  So to try and get in to the right frame of mind, my hubby got me to try on some of my 'put away' clothes (come on, we all have them). A bit of a fashion show.....or 'flashing show' as my hubby called it!

A few things are not as small on me as they used to be, and one thing actually fitted.........say hello to my Jeggings:

They may be a fashion faux pas. I really don't know, or care, about things like that. I just know, they are the only type of jeans that have ever suited me. So I am very, very happy to be able to wear them again!

I shall be linking up to a friendly bunch of losers (get it??) to see how they have done.
Wobbles Wednesday

I hope everyone is feeling happy and healthy out there and, thank you for coming back. Knowing that I have 'friends' out there gets me through the crappy times.

  1. Thanks for linking up to the Sunday weigh-in. I'm in bed with the flu at the moment so weightloss has totally taken a back seat. We need sunshine and blue skies to start feeling healthier and more focused, I'm sure ! Love the flashing show idea and well done for fitting into some clothes that didn't fit before. That's such undeniable proof of how far you've come :) One stone is amazing ! xxx

  4. Congratulations on your first stone! I hope you're feeling better (well, as "better" as you can) now. Jeggings were never a faux pas for me.
