The Benefits of Losing 5% of Your Starting Weight


4 Tips to Lose Weight This Christmas

No Weight Loss Weeks Over Christmas

I know I haven't updated my weekly weight loss for a while. The last time I weighed in at Weight Watchers, I'd lost 3.5lbs! I was ill that week and put a lot of my weight loss down to that.

Over the next few weeks I won't be weighing in. It isn't because I've given up on my weight loss - I really haven't! - it is because there are no Weight Watchers meetings over Christmas and the New Year. I will be tracking everything I eat though and hoping for a weight loss this Christmas.

Good luck to all those losing weight over Christmas and I will see you all in the New Year. I will keep this blog updating though over the next few weeks with tips and tricks to lose weight.

I even managed to pick dresses that were just slightly bigger than I used to fit in and ended up with a size 12! The same size that I was before having my baby! That surprised me even more and definitely put a smile on my face.

What Did I Do Differently?

Nothing different this week. Remember last week when I said that I don't fix something that isn't broken? Well, I'm definitely not changing this. I will keep going until I stop losing weight - which I know I will do at some point as I'm bound to hit a plateo. But, I'm ready for that whenever it happens and know…

Weekly Weight Loss Week 9

This week I lost 1lb. I'm just 1/2lb away from my first stone! I was gutted to see that I only had a half to lose for that stone but it just makes me more determined to have a good weight loss this week.

What Did I Do Differently?

Not much actually. I think I have found something that works for me and I'm going to stick with it for now. My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" so I am sticking with that. All I can really do is increase the amount of exercise that I do and look at ways to make my life healthier as well as helping myself lose weight - may that should be my next goal!

Baby group has become a regular thing for my daughter and me and we (well I since she is in a buggy) always walk down. This is a good 15 minute walk away and we tend to have a wander around the high street afterwards. I tend to gain 1 activity propoint every Friday now, at least.

What Will I Do Next Week?

It is a case of sticking to something that is working. I have noted a cyc…
