Got my half stone award!


Hi, At my Thursday weigh in I lost another 1 1/2 lb my weight loss so far is 7 1/2 lb so I got my first half a stone award and sticker! I was very pleased to get the award but to be honest I wanted more….we are never satisfied. I now think that it is true the older you are the harder it is to shift the weight, I used to be able to lose half a stone in a week when I was younger!

I have cooked some nice meals and again have not been hungry, snacking on Muller light yogurt and fruit, I allow myself either a curly wurly,fudge bar or a packet of french fries every night, or I can forsake them for a glass of wine!

I went swimming last week with my Sister and will go this week too, I had not been for a while but I love to swim and missed it so much, I kept saying that once I had lost weight I would go but swimming will help burn fat and why wait? I feel like I am putting my life on hold until I have lost weight but do you know what ? no more! I have missed out on so much because of my weight and I had very low self-esteem and no confidence but enough is enough! I am me and I am trying to get fit and healthy and If you don’t like me because of my size then that is your problem not mine!

I hope to lose a stone for Easter so I had better get off my bum and get moving!

x Dawn

P.S Curly Wurly’s are not as big as they used to be!

    Hey Dawn that’s fantastic!! I’ve been swimming like a loon for 3 weeks and got my Dtone award tonight. Very pleased after all the nights out! Like you I love swimming but hadn’t done it for ages … Get to be back in the water. 50 lengths at gym pool is 1/2 mile so I’ve managed it 3 times this week and done Zumba and an Abs class. Nice having that time to myself. Zumba is bloody brilliant. Find a class it’s do much fun.
    Got those So Juicy packets where you just throw 3 breasts of chicken in a bag throw on seasoning and bang it in the oven for 45 mins, so moist, tasty and low fat. Don’t know Syns but cans be bad as no fat added.
    Going for again this week! Considering asking the family for the dosh towards a course of 10 Personal
