Weighing In, The Progress Edition

Last week I talked about trying the 3 week diet plan and how I came to the realisation that perhaps I don't need to be on such an extreme diet. I want to make progress in the right way. I've always been quite hard on myself when it comes to my image and my weight, realistically I know how I see myself is not how I appear to others but I just can't get myself comfortable in my own skin.

Even last week I happened to mention that I didn't really see any difference in my body. I mean I've lost almost a stone in weight since January so you'd think that there would be a noticeable difference right?

I've been taking photos to document my journey, up until this point I'd not put them together, only ever looked at them separately and I suppose that made me more blind to the reality that my body is infact changing.

The photo below shows me in January, at the end of March and last week.

Seeing all the images together like that showed me that I have made a lot more progress than I originally thought.

I'm still not at the point where I can say I love my own body but my mindset is definitely heading in that direction.

At the beginining of the year I was obssessed with the scales, I was weighing myself every day and getting frustrated when the numbers appearing were not what I wanted to see. Food was the enemy, I left myself feeling guilty if I ate anything 'bad' and it turned into a vicious cycle.

4 months on and my attitude towards the whole weight loss subject is definitely improving. I only weigh myself once a week and I'm having treats without beating myself up over it once they've been consumed.

This week I put on 1lb and it is the first time I don't care that my weight has increased rather than decreased. Just looking at the picture above has given me a little boost in confidence. My efforts are working and I've just got to keep reminding myself that my weight isn't the be all and end all.



  1. So glad your attitude towards your weight has changed for the better. Weight loss is good, but when you still hate your body after you've lost considerable weight, you need to change your attitude.

  2. I'm glad your mindset has changed lovely, the scales aren't the important thing, it's about being healthy and loving the body you're in. You look fantastic so you definitely don't need to worry about the odd treat. Thanks for linking up with #BloggingToJogging xx

  3. Well done so far hun, you look amazing xx

  4. Attitude is everything I think, and you have a great attitude! You look amazing, and you can really see a difference between the beginning of the year and now. Well done, and keep up the good work xx

  5. Weight gain can also be down to muscle as well, not actual fat. There is a noticeable difference chick, look how much more toned you are now. You are doing so so well but don't overdo it! Like I said last week, I am glad you are no longer on the 3 week diet, it was very extreme for you! #WeightLossWednesday xx

  6. wowsers you've done brilliantly, you have so much more definition to your tummy now! i wish id taken some more before shots as its fantastic to see how far you've come on tough days. #weightlosswednesday

  7. You can soooo see the difference. Wow well done you. I wouldn't worry about the gain. A good poop can weight that or a difference in your fluid balance. You sound like you have a great attitude and keep at it xx #weightlosswednesday

  8. You've done so well!! Well done you. You have a great attitude and I'm sure you'll continue to make great progress #weightlosswednesday
