My journey through weight loss, fitness and the new me.

Weeks 4 & 5 Results

Week 4 – 1/2lb gain

Week 5 – 2lbs off!

12.5lbs off so far.  So if I can get 1.5lbs off this week I’ll get my 1st award and be half way to my first goal weight.

 

I didn’t post anything about last weeks weight.  Partially because I was annoyed at myself with the small gain, but it was my birthday so it was a very indulgent week and I wasn’t upset about it.  I would rather have birthday cake and a nice meal than feel I was missing out just to lose weight.

This week, 2lbs off.  Very happy with that!!

I haven’t been sticking to the plan, I keep cheating.  I got pretty upset this morning knowing I had to weigh in tonight so for lunch I had a tuna sandwich… and a big slice of carrot cake.

Big surprise to then lose weight.  Just goes to show that even when we think we’ve had a bad week, the scales can prove us wrong.

Favourite low syn treat this week… orange options hot chocolate made with milk and a little swirl of squirty cream.

2 syns for the hot chocolate, milk from my A choice and 1/2 syn for the cream.  Yum!!

How is everyone else doing?

Goal Achievement Treats and Rewards

I think it’s important to reward ourselves along our journey.  Whether that journey be weight loss, fitness, education, anything!

I’ve given myself a couple little treat goals along the way.  I have a big thing for nail art, so every half stone I lose I’m going to treat myself to new nail polish or nail art decals/stickers.

For the bigger goals, say as an extra for every whole stone lost we’re going to have an overnight trip to our favourite hotel.  A log cabin hotel in the Highlands.  it’s cheap as chips and pretty basic but absolutely amazing, and they let you bring dogs.

But my big final treat, when I hit my final target, that’s been troubling me.  I couldn’t think of anything.  Something that I would get excited about and could count down to.  Something to keep me going, working at it and not giving up. Something that wouldn’t cost an absolute fortune and make it unrealistic. (Which ruled out Disneyland!)

Today I realised what my end goal would be.  What would finish off the new me perfectly.

I’m going to go blonde!

Not mess it up at home out the box blonde, proper, head stylist professionally done fantastic bombshell blonde!

Right now I have a pretty boring haircut, it’s very dark brown and with my pale complexion I look pretty pasty and ill.  I’ve always wanted to go blonde, but my weight has held me back.  I want to hide not attract attention. But Kirsten Stewart, who has colouring quite similar to mine, has managed to pull off a pretty drastic hair colour change, so why can’t I?  I won’t be going quite as light.  More a very light brown with blonde highlights. So while I start on my weight loss and fitness journey, I’ll also be cutting back on the heat stylish and lavishing a little more attention on my locks to get them ready.

I’m going to lose the weight, get toned, confident and then get the haircut I’ve always wanted, but been too afraid to go for!

How did you treat yourself when you hit your goals, or how do you plan on rewarding yourself?
