Weigh in

First week of being on my diet officially, last week joined a slimming club, challenge was drink 8 cups of water a day so that’s about 3litre bottles. I’ve managed it, go me! I’ve managed to walk for at least 30 minutes a day getting in to peak heart rate work out for around 9 minutes, 10 minutes warm up 10 minute cool down. I’m happy with that, happy I’ve managed to hit 9k steps every day.

I’ve stored all my food in my fitness pal, part from Tuesday when I went all day on 2 hours sleep and didn’t eat much and when I did it was crisps! 

My trousers are looser on me, can feel them, and my knickers don’t rub the tops of my legs anymore! Lost 1.5 inches of the tops of my legs 1/2 an inch off my calf and an inch off my waist, yet put on half a lb on the scales. 

I’m not beating myself up about it just yet, I’m hoping it’s my body just getting used to the water and walking, I’m not going to give up just yet! 

I also know from past groups that * week you gain, I also know I can gain up to 7lb, that for me personally means I start that gain after ovulation, 3lb this week 3lb next week. My Fitbit can tell me this before my body, my resting heart rate raises by 2 from 79-81. 

So I’ll keep walking, I’ll keep weighing, I’ll keep measuring, will have to start a before and after pictures too. 

I could have come home and eaten rubbish but I didn’t, I finished off the last half a litre of water and had pasta tuna and veg for tea.

    1. I don’t think it’s enough muscle to actually weigh anything! I’m going on the hopes this week is just lots of water retention, the hill to weigh in didn’t kill me as much as it did last week! My aim is to get up that hill without being out of breath!

  1. Well done! It sounds like you’ve had an amazing start drinking all that water and walking 9k steps a day. If you can feel a difference in your clothes don’t worry about what the scales say. Just keep at it x
