No weightloss this week

but i'm not worried. I drank a vat of wine with Dave at the weekend so didn't really expect to lose. However i did start my leap group on tuesday and i've got a good feeling about it :0)

There were lots of lovely people there and we met the lady who's organising our fitness hour. Starting with Circuits next week but they are tailored to your ability. I've told her i can't do full jacks and it's nothing to do with my ability to do them but rather the lack of ability of my pelvic floor!!!

I've been a good girl so far since then and am making a note of what i eat but think i may need to update my calorie counting book. I'm still struggling with the 3 portions of dairy they are telling me i have to eat but i'm trying!

We also set out weekly goal which for me was to use my stepper for 20 mins every other day and so far i've managed to keep to it (infact i went over it on wed by 5 mins). The reward i've set myself is £5 into a kitty for new clothes. By the end of the 12 week course i may have £60 if i've been a good girl and stuck to my goals. Which reminds me i must go and do my stepper before I become glued to the sofa lol

2lb loss since friday

I've had to bring my weigh in day forward by a couple of days as my new leap group starts on tuesday evening next week so i thought i'd still do my morning weigh in on a wed morning (i like knowing how much i weight with out my clothing on lol)

2lb loss this week brings me to my first stone loss. To celebrate i went to Asda to buy a new jumper and ended up buying a cardi and a new top and for the first time in 12 months i've bought a size 18 and not a 20. I'm just a tad bit chuffed :0)

12lb loss so far :0)

Yup only 2 more lb to go and i've lost a stone which is a good feeling i can tell you. I slowed down this week (only lost 1/2lb) but it's still a loss. Since i last blogged i've been back to my dr and he's put me on something called Xenical (Orlistat) which hinders the absorbsion of around 1/3 of the fat i eat. It's a motivational booster and the side effects that it can cause is making me really look at what i eat fat wise which for me is a good motivational tool. I'm pleased to say that i've only had one instance of seeing the side effects and that was on day 3 of taking them. Since then i've been very very good lol. I also have to take a Vit tablet once a day because you absorb Vit E via fat so i add more into my diet with the vit tablet. Not a bad thing really as i need to take a multi vit anyways to help boost my immune system.

Finally i've got Alex to take some photos (so this is me 12lb lighter than when i started). They are not flattering at all (the whole purpose of them is to inspire me to lose more weight)

i still have another 39lb to go to get to the weight i want to be but i'm going to take progress piccies every month from now on so the next ones will be on the 16th March. Also a week today i start the Leap group on a tuesday night which includes an exercise class but i do have something to keep me active more now anyways. Meet the stepper lol

On the knitting front i'm spending half term looking for half finished projects to either frog or finish. I'm not starting any larger projects as i can't see the point in knitting stuff in a larger size that i'm going to need in the end (yup i'm that determined). I have yarn set aside for certain projects but will wait till i've hit goal weight before embarking on them. In the meantime i'm knitting a shawl for myself to keep me warm in the winter made from babylonglegs yarn (will post piccies later) and i'm going to finish off 3 hats lol.
