Sunday Weigh-In

Weight Today: 76.6kg

Total weight lost to date: 4.8kg

Weight loss in excess of expected total for this date: 2.8kg


I originally said 10kg by Christmas, but I'm almost halfway there after only 4 weeks of dieting. With determination I should be able to hit that 10kg off goal by the start of next term. I won't get to my goal weight by Christmas, but I think I can do 15-20kg by Christmas and have the rest of it off by Easter. I'm enjoying this!

I'm now losing about a kilo a week, and I'm moving myself off the frozen Weight Watchers meals and onto things I've cooked myself. I'm trying to get used to the small portion sizes required to fit my meat and carbs within my available weight watchers points. I've discovered a neat trick - no matter what I'm having for dinner, I start by covering the plate in a thick layer of lettuce, sometimes drizzled with a couple of teaspoons of mayonnaise or salad dressing. Lettuce is points-free but very filling and contains dietary fibre and vitamins, so it's all good, and it bulks up a small meal really well! A good way to feel full while staying within my points.
