Weight loss journey – Week 1

I started a healthy eating programme one week ago.


This time it has to be different as my health is suffering through carrying far too many stones.

I stepped on the scales today and noted my weight loss – 5 and three quarter pounds in just one week.

I am eating a lot of fish and vegetables. I have cut out meat and sweet treats. I am not drinking alcohol.

I managed an exercise routine this week and although I doubt I did it perfectly, I did get through it. It was the Josie Gibson one at Beginners Level.

My proudest moments this week eating wise were turning down a takeaway pizza and sitting with a black coffee whilst my family tucked into McDonalds.

What is helping me?

Knowing I have real health issues to contend with

My husband bringing me healthy treats like smoked salmon and avocados.

The wonderful support of online friends – every message makes a big difference so do keep them coming.

I can do this. I have to. Weight loss here I come and lots of it too.
