How many Easter Eggs are you all going to tuck into today?! If you've been good you deserve at least one!

Sarah - I've been loving Slimming World this week. For the first time in ages I am getting more than my five a day and am loving it. The only downside for me is to join online I had to enter my weight. I have given in and bought some scales but am keeping them in the boot of my boyfriends car so I can only weigh myself once a week. I know how obsessive I have gotten in the past over scales and I am determined not to let that happen again. I am going to weigh myself every Sunday and this week I have lost 4lbs! Very proud of that :)

Gemma - I lost another 1.5 lb this week which is great but I'm concerned that for someone my size 1- 1.5 lbs a week isn't much of a weight loss. I spoke to my Weight Watchers leader and she suggested that I drop 1 point a day and try and do an extra 30 mins of exercise a week and to see what success I have at my next weigh in. I have not eaten any Easter eggs this week but I did have a few bottles of beer last night so hopefully I wont be too disappointed when I step on the scales on Tuesday.

Sarah V - I've given myself a bit of a break! I didn't get weighed this week due to various other commitments, and haven't done much exercise either... also, as this is a holiday weekend, and also a holiday revolving around chocolate, well, damnit, I'm letting myself have some chocolate! It's a little dangerous re-introducing it to my diet as I've been off it for quite a few weeks now, but I'm determined to get back to it after Easter. I'm off all next week, and my plan is to factor in as much exercise as possible - which will hopefully counteract any badness!

Charlene - I've had an awful week. I received some scarily bad news on Monday which resulted in a week full of stressing, comfort eating and not much exercise. I've gained 1lb which I'm disappointed about, but it could be worse I suppose. I really need to give myself a kick up the backside and get myself back into a healthy routine as I feel like I'm letting myself (and everyone who reads) at the moment :(

Lucy - I'm pretty much the same as last week, I am not eating loads but am not paying attention to what I am eating so my weight is staying the same.  I cannot wait until I hand in my dissertation and can concentrate on my goal and getting ready for Australia.  I have been a good girl though and opted for money instead of Easter Eggs so make sure you enjoy an extra one for me!

So how did you get on this week chicks?


  1. It's always difficult with the holidays and Easter being the worst culprit! Dont be too hard on yourself ladies! I have managed to escape any chocolate over this holiday, which is such an achievement for me! I am however, making up for this by ordering Dominoes! OOOPS! The counter side of that, is that I have been cycling 40 minutes a day for the past week, which feels good and is easily done. I fear that this may not be enough exercise tho? What do we think?


  2. Well done girlies! You're all doing SO well. I love these posts, so inspirational and lovely to read x

  3. Sounds like you're all trying really hard.
    To Charlene, please don't feel guilty about letting us (the readers) down. If you've received bad news then concentrate on positive things rather than feeling guilty and low.
    It's good to give yourself "a kick up the backside" to be healthy :P but don't be too hard on yourself if you're under stress. x

  4. @sophiewearing- 40 mins a day exercise is fab, keep it up!
