Sarah - Had another week of stopping in hotels and having to eat what I am served. Not good for the diet. I had two wisdom teeth taken out yesterday and can currently only eat little bits of mush so can see myself surviving on mash potato and porridge this week so hopefully that will help with the weight loss. The worse thing is all food has to be room temperature and I love my soup piping hot so even that is out of the window.
Gemma- Only lost another 1/2 lb this week but I've tried lots of new foods and not cheated with my points, I've been very strict and written everything down. Working every day this week has had an impact on the amount of exercise I can do but I hope to pick it back up when I have some time off for Easter. Big challenge for me this week, I went out last night and my friends decided they wanted to go for a Chinese buffet, I looked at my Weight Watchers eating out guide before I went and chose the lowest point food. I stuck with boiled rice, curry and vegetables rather than sugary sauces like Sweet and Sour and fatty meats like duck and pork. I'm off out for my best friends birthday tonight and I can't promise I will behave and stick to my points but I will try my best :)
Charlene - This has been my worse week yet, I'm actually embarrassed to update you all! I'm not sure what happened but I've been a total slacker. I've barely done any exercise and ate so much junk food. I was expecting to gain weight but the scales say I've lost 2.8lbs. I did get drunk last night though, so think the weightloss might just be down to dehydration, we'll find out in the next few days. I'm definitely going to try much harder this week to get back on track. Since the sun is out I think I'll go running again too.
Sarah V - I feel like I'm so on track with the diet at the moment. My motivation is at a high - I'm finding it easy to resist naughty food! I had my weigh-in on Tuesday - first in 2 weeks - and had lost another 3.5lbs. That means I've lost 9lbs so far, since the beginning of March! Even more gratifyingly, several people have commented that I look like I've lost weight. I'm really hoping I can have a couple more good weeks and get another 5lbs off - then I'll have done a stone. I'm still LOVING Zumba, and am considering getting a DVD so I can do it at home. I've also walked to work every single day for the last 2 weeks (a mile each way) and did 9 miles of walking last weekend. And I've only drunk alcohol once in three weeks! In all, I'm feeling pretty damn virtuous! Next week, I just want to keep it up. I really need to blow the dust off the old Wii Fit, too...
Lucy - This week has probably been my worst week so far and it's all been a bit of a blur to be quite honest, my food diary hasn't been filled out since Tuesday either. I haven't been eating well at all but I got on the scales this morning and I'd actually lost weight so I'm not quite sure what's going on there but I'm not going to complain. It was my last week of uni so had major work panic and have dived head-first into my dissertation too, something that will be continuing until May 4th, but I'm definitely going to get back on track as of tomorrow. I'll need to make up for not being able to walk far too because I have sustained a horrible drunken injury to both knees and they're both ridiculously swollen, how lovely. Here is to a better week as of tomorrow!
We are still inviting people to sign up to the Where Are My Knees Pledge? This will give all of our readers the chance to join in and make a pledge to meet their weightloss and exercise goals.
On the last Sunday of each month we will post a summary of our progress to date along with our goals for the following month. We would like to invite our pledgers to tell us about their month and goals too. Each month 3 pledgers will be contacted to write a paragraph to be featured in the main blog post and the other pledgers are able to leave comments on the post to update us with their progress and goals. To make this fair we will be working our way down the list of pledgers to make sure that everyone gets a turn.
To sign up for the pledge all you have to do is:
+ Comment and tell us what your goal is, and leave a link to your blog.
+ Please also leave your email so that we can contact you to write up your paragraph. (You can email us this if you don't want to make it public in a comment)
+ You can also display our button on your blog. The code for that is here.
We've updated our pledge page with all our pledgers so far, but we don't have anyones email address so please let us know them so that you can be involved.
