Weigh In #9

OMG!  I'm overweight!  That's flipping AWESOME!!!!

Why?

Because it means that I'm not obese any more! 



This week I dropped another 2 lb and my BMI dropped below 30 for the first time since.... well since I first heard of BMI! Those size 14 jeans don't give me a muffin top any more - although my "baby bump / pouch belly" still sticks out at the front (ain't nothing but sit ups gonna shift that - damn it).

I'm stunned since we spent most of last weekend eating. I was fully expecting a stay the same, and wouldn't have been shocked at a gain. But there you go! Being extra careful this week has paid off. It probably helped that since it's Half Term I have been taking the kids out and walking all over with them. I really should go back and add the activity points, just to record the difference it made. Hubby lost 2 lb too and he was so surprised that he refuses to believe it!

This time last year my BMI was 36+ putting me at severely obese. I had no idea I was that big! Sure.... I knew I was big. I was aware of what size clothes I was wearing and I had mirrors same as I do now. But I had a bit of a mental block on just HOW big I was. Right now I am THRILLED to be only overweight.

My eldest son asked me if I was going to have a party to celebrate, hahaha... Maybe when I get to "ideal" weight! Only 2st 1lb till I'm there!

Weigh In:

  • Me: -2lb
  • Hubby: -2lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  44lb
  • I am not obese ANYMORE! (Never will be again!)

Things I have learned this week:

  • Hard work can negate a "naughty" weekend (if it's only rare)
  • I CAN resist Halloween treats!
  • It's worth having the points app on your phone for days out!

Targets for this week:

  • Learn some new soup recipes - think we've done our current collection to death
  • Walk to town twice - only managed once last week
  • Keep on drinking more water - it's working!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
