Week Twelve


This week has been a tough week diet wise. Putting it politely it is not a great monthly time for me and all I have wanted to do is eat. We also had a lovely weekend away with family and it was so hard resisting all the yummy cake, food and wine. Oh and bread, actually let’s just not think about bread at all. I also feel quite bloated. I managed to lose 1.5lbs, not great, but better than nothing which also means I have lost all of the weight I gained on holiday too – hurrah for that at least!

Also, because of the bloating I suspect, my measurements have also stayed the same. Which is a little frustrating as I did start to do some exercise this week – I did Zumba via Youtube. I tell you I haven’t been that hot and sweaty for a while ;-).

Overall I am now 23.25lbs down so next thing is to refocus and home in on the two stone target. I had to say to myself this week as I say to a lot of my clients – I need to remember dieting can be a bit of a marathon and not a race.

This week, I am refocusing and upping my exercise with that 2 stone goal in mind – 4.75lbs to go – let’s do this!


Diet following: Cambridge Weight Plan (read more here)

Weight lost this week: -1.5lbs

Number of weeks on the diet: 11 (with a week off and I am not including my holiday weeks)

Weight loss in total: -23.25lbs / 10.5kg


This week:

Bust: 0cm

Waist: 0cm

Hips: 0cm

Arms:  0cm

Legs: 0cm

Total loss this week: -0cm

Total lost so far: -28.5cm


My goals are:

  1. Lose the weight I have gained on holiday – complete – happy days!
  2. Now I really must focus on that two stone target. I have promised a pair of new earrings when I do.
  3. Third goal – to get my wedding rings to fit on the correct finger – I have actually got them on for 3 days of this week when the weather was cooler, so I am soo close now. I must remember the positives.

  1. Describing weight loss as a marathon is a great analogy! I just keep trying to remind myself that it’s better for my skin’s elasticity to lose weight slowly.

    Btw, good job with the Zumba! I haven’t kept up with my exercise goals .

    • I don’t know I kind of want it all off and I want it off now lol. I did some more exercise today – determined to add it into my weekly routine if I can – thank you 🙂

  2. Yay well done on losing your holiday weight!! I know what you mean on monthly cycles, I’m a classic water retainer and at times of the month it wouldn’t matter if I ate a lettuce leaf every day, I’m always bigger and heavier. You’re doing great, that 2 stone target is so close! X

  3. Good going Laura, you were amazingly disciplined at the weekend, and you really deserve your weight loss. As it is time of the monbth, you will probably have a really good loss next week when all the water goes.
    I am delighted to have lost 2lbs this week, which is a big loss for me. I think it may be linked to being ill for a week, but I have been eating properly for about ten days now, so am assuming that any temporary loss has evened out. onwards and upwards 🙂

    • Well done on your 2lbs that’s a great result. Hopefully I will lose some water this week and lose more – fingers crossed. Dieting is a game in patience and dedication is it not? But we’ll get there x
