Free Skinny Me 2012 – Week 1



It’s been a slow start back but I am going to change that, I mean it!

As I didn’t do any shopping until the end of last week I have relied mainly on not over-eating although I need to work harder at controlling portion sizes.  I am so used to piling my plate high that I really do need to re-educate myself in proper portion control.

I know where I am going wrong but not doing anything about it.  It’s not that I can’t.  I think it’s just that I am not motivated enough.

Yesterday we had a photoshoot and I was so conscious of how weighty I am.  It’s not a good feeling, to be so lacking in self-confidence.  I do need to do something about this and I need to do it now.

I am still wondering whether to go ahead with getting an exercise bike or another piece of equipment I can hop on and off in the moments nobody needs me.  The issue though is space.  Are there any recommendations for any equipment that are effective and sturdy yet don’t take up huge amounts of room?

Here are my results:

Resuming week’s result: Stayed the same

Current weight: 12st 6lbs (174lbs)

Mini goal: To lose 19lbs by week 18

Starting weight: 12st 8lbs

Goal weight: 8st 11lbs (123lbs)

Total to lose: 50lbs

Total lost to date: 2lbs

    Ultimate goal: weigh in @ 200 lbs by next pregnancy (assuming there is one, of course. We don’t use/practice any birth control, so you never know…)
