Continuation of the "get back on that wagon" plan.
I'm going to list all the little(and big) weight loss victories I've achieved so far- I don't want them to have all been in vain.

  1. Lost 17.5lb. That's a stone and a quarter. That's equivalent to the weight of an average gallon of paint, and an average newborn(or a very painty baby in other words). That's Awesome!
  2. I went on holiday to France and actually managed to lose half a pound. As a vegetarian. In France. With a breakfast buffet that included UNLIMITED BRIOCHE.
  3. Whilst in France I didn't order a single pudding. And they're just about the only form of french food I actually like. I had one spoonful (ok 2 spoonful's...but still) of my dad's creme brulee. And that was it.
  4. Also whilst in France I was on the fourth floor of the hotel. And I took the stairs. Everytime when I wasn't carrying my luggage or completely knackered from a day walking around everywhere I took the stairs. Up AND down.
  5. I went to Latitude festival and lost weight. And they have doughnut stalls. FRESH SUGARY DOUGHNUTS. AND I DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE NEAR THEM!!!!!!
  6. At Latitude festival my friend offered her chips to me to share. I took one. I ate it. I enjoyed it. I left it at just that one.
  7. My jeans have gotten so loose I had to actually buy a belt.
  8. My skin is improving massively- to the point where I actually notice what difference different foods make to my skin( I.e. in france when i was eating greasy cheesy stuff the spots returned...with a vengeance.)
  9. I WENT SWIMMING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO YEARS. And didn't feel self conscious. I'm still awful at swimming mind you.
  10. I have actually gotten rid of clothes because they were too big for me. And I know I'm not going to fit back into them ever again.
  11. I now crave vegetables more than ever. Which is a good thing.
  12. I've tried new fruit and veg- like butternut squash( OMNOMNOM) and passion fruit (OMNOMNOM).
  13. Gotten much better at making varied meals from scratch!
  14. Can now recognise portion sizes fairly accurately.
  15. I'm currently taking in one of my swing dresses which has gotten too big for me( when I first bought it I had to take it out as it was too small).
  16. Positive comments from many people saying I look much better/the weight loss is noticeable.
  17. Learning how to say NO THANK YOU.
That's all I can think of right now.
But it's a very good start I think.


  1. It's a brilliant start! All those victories already - just count them. You're showing yourself just what you are capable of. You can be very proud of yourself.

  2. seventeen whole victories! all of my very own :)
