Working both weighs: fourth week in

Crunch time.
The end of May is here and come next week I will have been a SW member for a year.
Will it be as a Target achiever, Three Stone loser or both?
I have followed the same strategy as last week, stuck to my food diary and the internet weight loss planner like glue, and recorded everything I’ve cooked and eaten.
I want to lose three more pounds. That’s all.

Looking through my SW journal and loss progress pages, my weight has hovered around my secondary target since Christmas!
Whatever I gained, I lost, if not the following week, then the week after that, so I have been practicing for my ‘maintenance programme’ for months.
Just three pounds. Not thirty, three.
Have I done it?
Sadly no, not yet.
A small gain of half a pound this week, but it could have been worse as all four of the ladies in front of me had gains between 2 and 6½ pounds.
Maybe the scales had got stuck in a rut and I actually stayed the same.
No matter, I can live with it, especially as I know I’m still losing inches.
Walking the dog this evening, I had her lead around my hips as usual and it fell to the floor after a dozen or so steps (and no pushing or breathing in by me!).


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You’re doing amazingly no matter what those scales say 😍

  2. You have done well! Your pictures are amazing. I’d go with “the scale was broke” myself.

    • It’s a nice thought that it might be. Hubby says he’s tempted to take in our 56lb weight to check, but then the boat is elsewhere and yep, the weight is in it!
