Last Weigh in of 2013 & Progress Report

Its been a while since I updated you guys and showed off shameful Selfie's of myself in Lycra, so here we go.

The last couple of months for me have been very busy as yer well aware, and I've been all over the place scale wise, up and down like a yo-yo!! But I didn't give up or skip too many weigh in's, thankfully, because other wise the news would be far worse!

Here is the link to the start of the year when I first posted a photo of myself in my gym gear back in January, and I can definitely see a difference in myself.. its not a drastic one, but I'm definitely more toned now and have less of a muffin top.

For me loosing weight is something that I'll no doubt be battling with for my whole life and I am learning how to incorporate it into my life and live healthier and make better choices food wise rather than being on a "diet"
So in that sense I'm winning because for the most part I have changes my eating habits, now I'm certainly not perfect and when I eat out I will eat what I fancy and have treats too.. 

I have been taking part in The Skinny Dolls 14x14 Challenge, I explained it here  in October,  
The Doll explains it much better on her page, here 

From looking at my weigh in chart for the last 14 weeks, its not pleasant reading.
I've done a tally and I was up 18lbs and down 8.5lbs 
Which means in the last 14 weeks I am up 9.5lbs  (correct as of 20.12.13)

So my scales loss for the year 2013 is -10lbs

Altho my non scale victories truimph all the numbers in my mind
  • I feel better about myself
  • I look better (in my opinion)
  • I'm down a dress size
  • I'm waaay fitter and healthier
  • I bared my legs in public in a dress (big deal for me)

I am by no means finished with my journey, I don't know if I ever will be. But you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be back in January raring to go and ready to continue on my weight loss journey, one pound at a time


  1. Overall, that's a good year because you are definitely heading in the right direction. Have a lovely new year and good luck with your goals :)

  2. Well done with the legs. That is a big one for me which I cannot wait to achieve! 10lbs is still 10lbs down so focus on the next 10 for 2014 :)

  3. 2014 and Beyond. Good Luck ! Thank you for the resolution inspiration...

  4. Losing weight shouldn't be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to achieve weight loss are often prone to take more risks. The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.
