MY Week

Hi everyone,

Hope that you had a good week? I class my weeks tues-tues as i go to my WW meeting on a tuesday evening :)

So last night i went to my meeting. I was feeling like i would have lost about 1lb as i had stuck to my points but not really gone wild on the ole exercise. I was pretty pleased when i got on the scales to find out that i had lost 2.5 lbs :) WOOHOO.

I would say that in general this does not reflect my average week. I have been working a lot this week meaning that i have been out the house at 6:30 am, so i have been taking ham on toast with me in the car. In a normal week i tend to have either weetabix or bran flakes for my meals as i feel that these keep me fuller and more satisfied for longer.

In general i do no have margarine or butter on bread or toast but this week i have as if you do not eat toast straight away without any on then it tends to be rock hard.

I have also been working tll 9pm on some nights meaning that i have taken a ready meal to work with me for convenience. I dont tend to go for ready meals as you can get more for your points if you cook from fresh ( and it tastes nicer hehe).

Also (this applies to those who are also following WW ) i weigh all of my food out. I own the WW kitchen scales! They are fantastic!!!! i cant emphasise how great they are. Yes - THEY ARE VERY PRICEY!! however they can work out the points of anything for you :)

for those of you looking at my menu's i do not like the taste of the yolk in egg so i never eat it - only ever eat the white bit , the white of an egg has a points value of ZERO, the white bit has a points value of 1.5


Day 4 - 15 minutes on my exercise bike, 10 minute run
Day 5 - level 1 (20 mins) 30 day shred

yeah i know pretty poor effort there on the ole activity - I WILL TRY HARDER THIS WEEK :)

  1. I get weighed on a Tuesday too! I am allowed extra points as I breast feed, I admire you for coping well on such little points. I am allowed 25 a day and its perfect.
    Well done on your loss this week anyway! I lost 1.3lbs Xx

  2. Well done Daughter of Peter! (do you remember that? ahaha) ! xxx

  3. hahah yeah i do - i get it all the time at work now aswell when i tell them my surname they say - any relation of peters? lol

  4. Hiya,

    Loving your blog and well done on the weight loss.

    I'm just a bit concerned you aren't eating anywhere near your points allowance. I know it seems to make sense to not eat as much to lose more weight, but it doesnt work like that. The points system is worked out so you get the right amount of points/calories to lose weight and be healthy. If you don't eat enough your body will actually hold on to the fat rather than lose it, as it thinks you're starving yourself. If you want to save some each day, make sure you have a big treat using all the points (or most of them) as 32.5 saving a week is huge!

    Maybe talk to your leader about it, and see what they say, but i've always been told to save a max of 4 a day if you want to use them up later in the week, or you've gone over earlier in the week.

    Good luck though, you've done fantastically so far!


  5. Hi Hannah

    thanks for the message - i do tend to struggle to eat all my points some weeks. The week above is probably not the average week for me. I understand all about the body storing itself if you dont eat too much and i would advise anyone that they should eat all their points :) thanks for the advice though :) xx

  6. Interesting blog. It would be great if you can provide more details about it. Thanks you
