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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    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!
