Week 36 Weigh in Results (Week 4 at Target)

I had yet another loss this week. 2lbs off. Taking me to Target minus 5.5lbs. I think the time has come to re assess my target and perhaps drop it. I have Woman of the Year this Sunday, so for now I'm focused on that and will make my choice on new target next week at group. I feel I'm so far below target now that to gain back what I need to would be too hard, or will involve over indulging, which I don't want to do. My total loss is now 8 stone 4.5 lbs.

Week 35 Weigh in results (Week 3 at Target)

Well I had another small loss this week, just 1lb, but it's added up to 3.5lbs under target now. The target range for Slimming World is 3lbs above and 3lbs below target, so I've just gone out of the lower range. I need to gain back that half this week so I don't have to pay the following week, so I'm going to concentrate on making sure I get my extra Healthy Extras each day to boost my intake. I will get it right eventually, but for now I'm happy with where I am. It's not a bad problem to have.

Week 34 / Week 2 at Target Weigh in Results

This week I had a small loss of 1.5lbs. I don't fully understand how, as I have eaten a fair amount this last week. This has taken me to Target minus 2.5lbs. I can't go below Target minus 3lbs, or I'd have to become a paying member again. I am going to have a go trying to maintain again this week. I'm not going to try to gain, as I feel that goes against what my journey is about. If I can maintain at this lower weight it will leave me room for any gains caused by occasions that I cannot avoid. For now I am feeling very happy with where I am and I'm totally enjoying being a target member.
