1.5 stone

Another week… another weight loss :)

I feel like I can finally SEE the progress I am making and that is such a motivation to continue.

And even though this week was only a 1 lb loss, I am not disappointed. All those pounds add up. 21 lbs to be precise! And I achieved my 1.5 stone (that’s 21 lbs to my international friends :) ) weight loss award this week and got a fab certificate to mark the occasion. <<< insert happy dance! >>>

3rd January, 2014: starting weight 13st 8 lbs (190 lbs)
28th March, 2014: in-progress weight 12st 1 lb  (169 lbs)

I am now *this* close to being in the 11-stone-zone. It’s been a while. I’m ready for it!

I also feel like my brain is finally in the game.

There’s a saying that goes something along the lines of, “if you do something enough times it becomes a habit” well, I think I’ve finally got there. I’m making healthier choices much  more easily. I feel so much more confident in turning down temptation that is not aligned with my goals.

Last week, I sat and watched some guy friends DEVOUR a freshly-cooked Domino’s pizza. Ugh, and they had jam doughnuts too. Even though I was offered some, I had no issues in saying, “No.” I’m not joking when I say 3 months ago, I would have been face first into that dough!

Never trade what you want the most for what you want at the moment. 

I’m getting there, y’all!

xoxo Natalie

    You truly have my admiration, respect and encouragement. Congratulations on your weight loss achievement.

    Your 11stone region is only a smidge.. maybe 1 less bite or 10 more minutes walking. You Can Do It!

    WOO HOO!! Well done you. I bet that feels great. The mindset thing is the biggest issue isn’t it and it looks like you’ve got it nailed. Keep it up ;-)
