Weight Loss Wednesday | Week 5!



Happy weight loss ladies, I hope you have all had a good week!

Now I have a bit of a confession to make and If I'm honest, I'm not very proud of myself but, I think the only way to get past it is to tell you and move forward. So remember last week when I was on my time of the month and said I didn't want to weigh myself as I didn't want to be disheartened? Well I lied. I did weigh myself and I was so disappointed in myself for eating bad and not tracking my calories and making the excuse of " well I'm on my period so sod it". I had got down to 22 stone 5lbs and when I weighted myself last Sunday on weigh day, I was 22 stone 10.5lbs :( I know... I know.. its a bit more then just a fall off the bandwagon isn't it! I had put on 5 and a half pounds now I'm not sure how much of that was time of the month stuff like water retention and all that or if it was a poor diet but I really got off the wagon last week, regardless, The good thing is I've been working my ass off this week, walking everywhere and eating to my calories and I've manged to get down to 22 stone 4 lbs

So although I put on loads last week even though I didn't want to tell all of you, I think it just goes to show its mind over matter. I fell off and had a bad week, put on 5 and a half pounds, and instead of giving up, I spent the next week working hard and not only lost that 5 and a half, but an extra half which resulted in me hitting my first milestone! 1 stone !

So I'm 5 weeks into my diet and I'm 1 stone lighter, I couldn't be happier!

Here are the measurments!

Week 5  Weight and measurements

Weight : 22s 4lbs (312 lbs) 
 That's now a  total : 1 stone Lost.


Neck : 18.7 inches  17 inches (1.7 lost)
Waist : 59.7 inches  58.5 inches (1.2 lost)
Hips : 55.2 inches   52 inches (3.2 lost)
Underbust : 49.1 inches  47 inches (2.1 lost)
R Bingo Wing ( tricep): 17.9 inches  15 inches (2.9 lost)
L Bingo Wing : 17.9 inches 15.5 inches (2.4 lost)
R Thigh (middle of thigh) : 32.9 inches 29.5 inches (3.4 lost ) 
L Thigh : 32.1 inches  30 inches (2.1 lost )

So a total of 5.9   19 inches lost all together :)




I'm drinking more water, I'm having more confidence with clothes I want to wear and styles I want to try despite being a plus size and best of all, I have all of you lot each week supporting me. I'm always really taken back by the sheer amount of support I get in comments each week on my wlw posts, some are by the other lovelies doing #bloggerswlw and others are just my lovely followers who want to show some support and I just want you to know it means the world to me that you take a second to write your lovely words! :)

So here is to a hard month ahead. It's my birthday on the 10th, along with valentines on the 14th, along with the boyf's bday on the 24th then I have several days out in the month, a day out with my mum shopping, a day out with a blogger friend and several events I'm going to.. Suffice to say its going to be hard but .. you will just have to wait till next week to see how I get on :P

I hope everyone had a good week and if you didn't I hope my post shows you, even if you have a colossal step back, you can take a giant leap forward the next week! 

I always reply to all my comments & will always return the favor.

    1. Thanks so much hun! I think we all just want to have good positive results each week and not look like fatties who had to sneak in a choccie biccie. But the reality is we are all human and its going to be a bumpy ride, It's silly to think we wont fall off the bandwagon at some point. It just makes a huge difference when I have all of you guys to help pull my chunky butt back up! :) <3 xx

  4. I used to do exactly the same thing - if I thought I'd had a bad week I wouldn't weight myself, but it's just a vicious circle! CONGRATULATIONS on your loss so far, I know exactly how it feels to get disheartened on weeks that the scales aren't your friend. I keep two glass pots stacked in my room - the top one has one glass bead for every pound I want to lose. As I lose weight, I move the glass beads down into the bottom pot. I like looking at "evidence" that I'm doing well for encouragement :-) x

    1. Thats exactly it Ria! Thinking I could save face and thinking I could be crafty and get it back down the following week so nobody would know! totally the wrong attitude and if anything, being more honest about it makes it look better. Yes I put on 5.5 lbs last week, but I LOST 6.5lbs this week. I am going to fall off the bandwagon, but im not going to let it ruin my progress!

      I love the idea of glass beads in the pots.. only thing is ive got like 100 lbs to lose haha.. not sure i could find a glass big enough :P I JEST I JEST! xxxx

  5. I'm sorry you felt like you couldn't tell us last week what had happened although I totally get it, I lie to myself at times hoping it didn't actually happen! Haha! I'm glad you worked through and I knew you could! A stone is incredible, I'm actually quite jealous you've been able to be strict with yourself. I've been so busy and have not had actual time to eat, and when I do it's not always something good..... I'll need to work on this! Oh and BY THE WAY my birthday is the 11th!! How crazy is that? Almost blog-sisters, haha. What I'm doing for my birthday is making a raw vegan cheesecake and raw date brownies. Everything is super sweet and makes you feel like you're splurging, which you are, but on the good stuff like cashews, dates, coconut and such.

    Much Love,
    -Stephanie Eva
    (I will answer your email I am excited too.... hahah)

    1. Aw Steph!!!! It wasn't that I felt I couldn't say in last weeks post, I think It's that I didn't want to say it out loud that I had a massive set back, What if I could get it back off the following week? Then nobody would know and I wouldn't look like I fell off the bandwagon.In the end by doing that, It only meant this weeks success wouldn't be as highlighted. I wouldn't enjoy it as much so.. I figured I needed to come clean!
      NO WAY? the 11th?!?!?! Well happy early birthday for then hun just in case I don't speak to you before in emails!

      Excited to get your email! I've already seen a few things haha xxx

  8. Lucie Doll,

    Dont feel too disheartened. When its that time of the month and your weighing you will find that due to water, being bloated etc you can weigh up to 3lb heavier. It has happened to me and I left Slimming World last night with putting a 1lb on and I was annoyed because I had been good throughout the week but my mummy and my boyfriend let me know. Well done honey, you are doing so amazing! You should be so proud of yourself! Congrats darling!
