Do you want to know how to lose half a stone in a week?
I jumped on the weighing scales before the children got up and the school run chaos commenced.
I have lost, wait for it girls, ta ta ta, half a stone in a week!!!
I was expecting a pound if I was lucky.
I have done well on the eating front. Perfection nope but definitely a far healthier eating plan than usual.
The good stuff has included cereals, fish, eggs and Weightwatcher meals.
The less than perfect included a fish and chip lunch, pate and a roast dinner. All three of these were related to pleasing family members in one way or another. Something to learn from that I am sure.
Exercise wise, I have been more active but not really done proper exercise as such.
I know that I will not keep losing at this rate but it is a great motivation to stick with things.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the lovely ladies who leave comments on this site, both those participating in Mumentum and those who are not. You all really make a big difference to how I feel and how positive I can be.
So here am I with a new pair of trousers with a belt so that I can keep tightening it, with a new bra size and feeling very good about myself. I am lighter now than I have been for about 3 years, still gigantic but getting smaller and on the right track.
My daughter said to me “Maybe it is the weight that keeps holding you down”. I thought this was deep really in terms of both my physicality and my emotional health.
Now visit the New Mum Online blog and see how other Mumentum members are getting on or even better, join them. You can also track down these ladies on Twitter via #mumentum
Here’s to every mom who is trying to get sorted whether they are struggling or not currently.
With love from the Striking Mum x
