Posts Tagged ‘Weightwatchers; illness’

I’ve discovered the second best way to lose weight (the best way being to give birth to an 8lb baby). Get ill! I lost 3.5lbs this week by not eating very much due to a constantly churning stomach. My WW leader suggested it will provide me with a good buffer for next week, which I thought quite an odd way of looking at it. It’s sort of like saying that throwing up is good for you, which it clearly isn’t…yet another somewhat suspect way of looking at weightloss from WW. (Bearing in mind this is the same woman who said that drinking water flushes fat out of your body…now I’m no scientist, but…)

But the good news is that I am now officially fitting into all my size 14 clothes, and I even went into a few shops to try stuff on to confirm! I’ve been between a 14 and 16 for a few weeks now so it feels good to zip up a 14 very comfortably. I’m also only 1/2lb off having lost 10% of my starting body weight-fingers crossed I’ll reach that mini goal next week. I’m now weighing in at 12st 5.5lbs and I’d really love to see the New Year in with a weight in the 11s but I think that’s quite a tall order over Christmas. I’ll do my best though, and am going to be extra good this week as I’m sure once we go to my mother’s it’ll get considerably harder given that I won’t be allowed to do all the cooking. Keep your fingers crossed for a good loss next week for me…
