New Year, New Start.


I'm back with a revamped blog, a new name and lots to share!
So it's been about 9 months since I last blogged, and wow quite a lot has happened. For numerous reasons I haven't "felt like blogging" but remembering back to when I did I realised it actually helped me quite a bit so I have made it one of my new years resolutions; to blog at least once a week!

It's quite weird that my last post back in March was about getting back on track after Christmas (how did it take me THREE months?!!) This year - 4 days after Christmas I am sorting myself out. Ok so I'm not being a complete weight watchers angel but my head is (near enough) in the right place and I'm ready to get back on the wagon, that is come Tuesday. So everyone says "i'll start again tomorrow", but starting on Tuesday has it's reasons. I'm going to London for the weekend for new years eve and come Tuesday I will be back living in my own house where I do WeightWatchers best. Living at home + me + Weightwatchers = 9lb gains (that was last years, I'm yet to step on the scales this year!)

So what has happened since march? Well weightwatchers wise I think I've lost about another 2.5 stone since then, leaving me with 2 stoneish to go to goal, and I am being totally impatient about getting there and I want to be there NOW! Which in a weird way is part of my motivation.  This year I also went travelling for a month with one of my best friends, something which was amazing, and I definitely would not have done it when I was my fat old self. I've made it to me third; and final year of uni; how I will never know, and I am totally in denial that I will be graduating in roughly 6 months and should probably think about a "proper job". My "personal" life, or my love life in better terms has been eventful to say the least but that's totally for another post as it is far to long a story; but I do believe that without my weight loss it would not have been so eventful and I guess in some weird way it is good as it is teaching me more about who I am and becoming confident in myself.

I've set myself a *few* realistic (I think) goals for the new year (some weight watchers related, others not), and I'm going to share them all with you in the hope I actually stick to them:
* Track every day even if I've stuffed myself
*Go to the gym at least 4 times a week
*Blog once a week
*Finish (and start ) uni assignments before the night they are due in!
*Get to goal in 2012 (preferably before my 21st and graduation; June/July)

After trying and failing for 40 minutes to add a ticker to my blog (any advice welcomed!) I will bid you all good night and shall report back soon with my post Christmas WI and the damage!

Back to Basics and 9 months on!

If any one actually reads this blog I'm apologizing for not blogged in over a month! But after Christmas my head was messed up regarding WW, but here we are week 3 of being back on the wagon. After a 3.5lbs loss the first week, and 0.5lb loss last night, I am embracing WW and realizing that ProPoints is amazing and actually works! 

And back to basics actually works, you know read all the information they get when you first start, look at why you want/need to lose weight, and most importantly: TRACK, EVERYTHING. This is the reason behind successful weight loss. Take last week for example, I went out on the Thursday night, drank copious amounts, hangover day Friday = McDonalds for lunch and Indian for tea = 66 propoints! But before I would not have pointed this, and now I do and I think that is the reason behind the 0.5lb weight loss this week! Even if you've been "naughty" you can still to some extent control your eating. 

So the following photo is the first time I have realised that I have actually lost weight! I think because I see myself everyday I don't realise, and I know I'm in smaller clothes but I always think I'm not "truley" in them as I always used to squeeze into smaller clothes when I was at my heaviest. But here it is in black and white, I am actually smaller. WOW! I am by no means "small" or any where near goal, but I'm getting there, and this photo is the background on my laptop and this is what keeps me going. I can do it. And if anyone reading this is feeling low or feeling like they are going to give up, please don't this plan works, even if at times you feel like throwing the towel in (I've felt this many a time!) Just go back to basics and remember how far you have come so far!

On other topics than WW - uni, it's such a bore at the minute! I am only in 6 hours a week and even this seems like a chore! And I have a massive project in 2 weeks today all about STATS. I HATE STATS. Which is why I am yet to start it.....

Love Love:)

I wish my tracker looked like this every day. I seem to be able to have 4 or 5 days like this, where I track religiously, everything I eat goes in here, the exercise I do, everything! But then I have 2 or so days I week where I just don't track properly, it's usually the weekends, where I'm working and I'm not 100% good, I'll track breakfast, and snacks sometimes lunch and then dinner goes out of the window....I need to break this cycle. I need to be on track 100% of the time! Plus my tracker looks pretty like this!

I'm in a bit of a weird stage with WW at the moment, I'm still trying to lose the Christmas weight, I've lost nearly half of what I put on, and I know losing 2lbs a week is the healthy way to do it, but it's so frustrating knowing I've lost this weight before and I put it back on and when I'm losing now, it's not like I'm really losing as I'm just going back on myself. 

I don't know if I fully like ProPoints either, I've never fully got into it, and haven't seen real results from it as of yet. This week is just a bit annoying after all the exercise I did, I was hoping for more than a 2lb loss....

Let's just hope this week is a good one:)

This is the story of my life, I'm in a very reflective mood today, thinking about the past, the present and the future. And I've realised most of my thoughts are revolving around guys, seriously why take up so much time thinking about them when it's hardly likely that one guy is thinking about me as much as I think about him....

It's time to do things for me, and not for any one else, I've already started this by WW, and I'm going to carry on and loose the rest of the weight to get to goal, I'll hopefully be going to America in the summer, which I just need to take the opportunity and live it as it's not going to come around often.

I'm also going to try and enjoy every day, like the saying at the bottom of my page "a day without laughter is a day wasted" it's true, we all take to much time thinking about yesterday, what could have been or about tomorrow and what can be, but we hardly take the time to think about today, what is now, what we are living. It's time to enjoy everything before we waste away our life thinking always about "what if".

A Day Without Laughter Is A Day Waste <3
