Weight loss journey – week 4

I have lost 5 pounds this week! I am only on week 4 of my weight loss journey and have lost 12 and three quarter pounds.


I had hoped for 2 pounds and would have settled for one pounds so I am over the moon.

It was my birthday at the weekend so I allowed myself various treats including chocolate, cake, a couple of glasses of wine and very naughtily 2 mini pork pies.

There was also an Indian takeaway at some point in the week.

I guess this goes to prove that it is what you do most of the time that really matters. For me, that now involves lots of vegetables and lots of fish.

My proudest moments this week were giving away 3 of the 4 Wispa bars my son got me for my birthday and ordering poached eggs when out to lunch. Oh and resisting cream left on my daughter’s dessert plate which was screaming at me.

I finally got my diagnosis after becoming ill back in October. I have prediabetes and apparently this can be reversed so that is my mission now after such an important wake-up call on the health front.

The nurse upset me a bit when she said I have a long way to go. However then I woke up and remembered that about 3 years ago it was a big deal for me to go out to the next village and yet not long after that I flew to America. Baby steps lead to big change. I know this and I will remain positive.

    It’s only the nurse’s opinion. Doesn’t mean anything, it’s just how she sees things, not necessarily how you see things. Ignore her. Well done!

    Well done on the loss, that’s fantastic for 4 weeks!
    I remember watching a programme about how a series of pre-diabetic women reversed it, it must have been a shock to receive the news but it is a motivation for you to carry on.
    Baby steps will get you there x
