I guess you already know by the post title that I lost another 2 lbs. this week!
That puts me at a 20 lb weight loss for the year so far.

I also achieved Slimming World’s “Club 10″ which means I’ve lost 10% of my body weight. That’s gotta be like an entire limb or something, right?!

And quite frankly, a weight loss was just the boost I needed – I have had a MAJOR crappy week this week.

Somehow, one night last week I managed to bite into the side of my cheek whilst sleeping. Omg, the mouth ulcers that arose because of this were agony. Now, I have a pretty high tolerance when it comes to pain, but jeez, this was off the scale! Maybe it’s because I now have braces – but the ulcers were mahoosive and I could barely talk or eat for about a week. I was close to tears on several occasions.

On a plus side, it did limit my food intake :)
On a downside, eating the bare minimum each day seems to have put the brakes on my metabolism because given how much I ate, I should have lost at least 3x that amount!

3rd January, 2014: starting weight 13st 8lbs (190 lbs)
21st March, 2014: in-progress weight 12st 2lbs (170 lbs)

Watch out 11st… I’m coming for ya!!!

    Natalie, I have got to say CONGRATULATIONS and you are an Inspiration. YOu are doing what I would like to do (show accountability with others online, not to mention lose some much unwanted weight) yet I am to chicken $hi- to do so. Now if I can get over my love of ice cream, I am there right with you.

    Keep up the GREAT work. You are an INSPIRATION!

    PS… How much is a stone?

  2. Natalie says

    Aw, Carla… thank you so much! That is so lovely to hear!

    A stone is a crazy unit of weight measure we have here in the UK (and Ireland) that basically, confuses the rest of the world :) One stone is equal to 14 lbs.

    I’ve put my weight in just lbs above to try and add some clarity, although I think I’ve just confused matters more, lol.

    You are such an inspiration!! I joined Slimming World in February and have combined it with Jillian Michaels’ 30 day shred. I’ve only lost 5 pounds and totally gave up the eating plan :( FAIL! I just found the food so bland! What meal plan do you follow? Kerry xx

      Hi Kerry, I just follow the Slimming World Extra Easy plan and LOVE the food choices. As an example, for breakfast, I typically have Weetabix or Slimming World pancakes. At weekends, a SW Full English :) Evenings are often, chilli-con-carne and rice, bolognese, lasagne, homemade cheese burgers, jacket potatoes piled high, salmon… so much to chose from!

      Another thing to consider is starting a sudden weight loss programme can slow down your weight loss results. If it’s not something your body is used to, your muscles get a little shocked and hold onto a ton (I exaggerate) of water as a protection mechanism. It’s not bad, because you are still losing and toning, it just doesn’t show immediately on the scales.

      I would love to share some more fun ways you can enjoy Slimming World… why not hop on over to my Facebook Page and we can chat some more there!

    Hi. I’ve been reading your blog and I must say it’s really inspiring. I’m aiming for a 4st weightloss. I started in January and. I’m currently at the 2st weightloss mark and reading your blog has really motivated me to keep going. Your before and after pictures are brilliant!
