This is something that I’ve been asking myself and have seen that others question this too. I just thought it might be helpful to think aloud in case it helps you to reflect what works best because, at the end of the day, it’s finding a way that works for YOU! Let’s look briefly at … Continue reading How often should I weigh myself? →
Yes, really! I usually tell you the magic weight loss number some way into my posts but I just had to put it in today’s title! I’m SO pleased! I wouldn’t say that I’ve made any real changes to what I’m eating this week but I suspect it’s to do with ‘Couch to 5K’. Do … Continue reading Week 10 weigh-in: 5lbs lost this week! →
HOW much are you eating, Erika? So, my weight is coming off, I’m on course to lose quite a few pounds this week and I thought I’d share with you what I’m eating. I’d like to tell you that I’m eating copious amounts of fruit, veg, fish and lean meat but I’m not. You see, … Continue reading Eating to lose weight →
Hey folks When I shared the results of my weekly weigh-in on Monday and told you that I was just 10lbs away from no longer being morbidly obese, I suspected that I had some water retention (time of the month and all that!) Anyway, I weighed myself this morning and I’ve lost another 3lbs since … Continue reading Week 9: an extra weigh-in as I can’t help myself! →
Little goals. Day at a time! Yes, I’m SO excited that the point of no longer falling into the morbidly obese range is within reach! You see, it can be very easy to focus on those long term goals such as fitting into those skinny jeans or being light enough to wingwalk on a plane … Continue reading Week 9 weigh-in: 10lbs to go until no longer morbidly obese! →
Hey folks Couch to 5K I can’t stress enough that just 4 months ago, I was the person who’d choose to catch the next bus rather than run to catch the one about to leave! I’d be the person circling the car park to get the nearest space to the shop and would come back … Continue reading Get me! Exercising at 2am!! →
Hello feet! Well, my non-scale victory might be something that nearly everyone can do but…..I can now stand with my feet together! For quite some times, there’s been a 1-2 inch gap but I suddenly looked down the other day and woah!!! My feet touch!!! The scales say… I’ve lost 2lbs this week. I know … Continue reading Week 8 weigh-in: a non-scale victory! →
I wonder whether anyone can relate but I used to think that somebody would have to be within or heading towards a dangerously low weight for mental health professionals to talk about anorexic behaviour. However, back in 2011-2012, I spent 6 months in this horribly restrictive headspace that almost ended up with me sectioned against … Continue reading Overcoming anorexic behaviour →
Hey folks I love my scales…right now! Sometimes, we can tell that we’ve lost a bit of weight by the way our clothes feel, the way we move more easily or because we just feel ‘different’. People might start to notice although this typically happens after we see the first signs. But, of course, the … Continue reading Week 7 weigh-in: claiming two scale victories today! →
Hey folks Too fat to run? No! I’m SO excited to tell you that I’ve started the running programme C25K (Couch to 5K). Yes, I know that I started some jogging on the spot a few weeks ago and injured myself but I made the mistake of not having any rest days. However, this time, … Continue reading Week 6 weigh-in: I’ve started C25K! →
