Weight Loss Diary #11

My weight loss diary is a little late this week as I am a little bit ashamed, even though I knew it was going to happen. It was my birthday at the weekend and needless to say, I indulged. So did quite a few of my friends (also on SW) actually. But I was dreading weigh in on Monday and whilst it wasn’tΒ quiteΒ as bad as I expected it to be, it was still pretty bad for me considering I maintain or lose mostly.

This week I put on 2lb. Now considering I had takeaway pizza with sides plus three different birthday cakes from people and chocolates for presents plus the alcohol I drank when we went out…2lb isn’t that bad in the grand scheme of things. However it pushes me further away from my 1 stone award and as I sit there typing this I can see my 1/2 stone award and IΒ want that stone award next to it so badly.


I’ve struggled a bit this week to get out of the mindset of it being my birthday and now finally seem to be back on track. I’ve been doing my walking every weekday and want to get some time in on the exercise bike over the weekend. I’ve also arranged with a couple of my friends who also attend Slimming World to visit the gym together once a week or so when the children are at nursery or go for walks with others. Even all do an exercise DVD at the same time as each other to spur each other on. I know some of my friends can suffer lack of motivation sometimes and we need to do all we can to build each other up and help each other achieve our weight loss goals.

I love this quote – I think it sums it up well. I don’t want it to come back thus I am not losing it as such, I am getting rid of it, banishing it forever. I’m hoping for a 2lb loss next week so that I am back on track but of course would be totally chuffed if I managed more. Wish me luck!

  1. If you can’t indulge on your birthday, when can you indulge? 2lb isn’t bad considering and you’ll loose that weight soon enough! It sounds like you had a lovely Birthday πŸ™‚ xx

  2. Your birthday is now in the past. You know how to take back control. A 2lb blip isn’t worth worrying about in the long run as long as you don’t use it as an excuse to undiet for the next few weeks.

  3. Never thought about it like that before but great quote!! Don’t worry about the last weight-in, just keep moving forwards and I’m sure you’ll reach that stone award soon. Weight fluctuates so much, so even if you indulged, it’s to be expected!

  4. I think everyone has ups and downs on a weight loss journey and as it was your birthday I think you had a good excuse! And hopefully it will motivate you more going forward.

  5. 2lb isn’t bad for a birthday week! I managed an impressive 7lbs Christmas Week :/
    I to find it hard to get back on the wagon, I do love the support I get from my Slimming World friends though

  6. You’re doing incredibly well and as our weight tends to fluctuate between a few pounds a day, 2lbs is nothing to worry about gaining πŸ™‚ keep up the amazing work, it will be off again in no time.

  7. Happy birthday ! Don’t feel ashamed, birthdays (and the cake and alcohol !) are a part of life, just like Christmas, so it’s normal to have a few occasions where you need to cut yourself some slack. Jump back on the wagon for next week. You sound like you’ve got a great support network for exerise which is amazing

  8. A very apt quote! As for taking time off for your birthday, if you can have one week off dieting a year, then that is definitely it! A 2lbs gain is nothing and I am sure you will have lost that and more this week. You are really determined and motivated and that’s what it is all about. You have a goal and you aim for it – you will be staring at that 1 stone certificate very soon… and I look forward to that blog post when you are! Hope you are having a fantastic week, thank you so much for joining in with #WeightLossWednesday and hope you can join in this week! Sim xx

  9. What a fantastic quote!!! I won’t comment on the actual weight because I’m catching up on last weeks but Happy belated Birthday! I hope you had a good time. πŸ™‚ I am looking forward to checking out your most recent post! πŸ™‚
