    This week's loss -5lbs

    So despite it being TOTM, I have lost another 5lbs which will do me just fine meaning I have 11lbs overall to lose by February 15th - fingers crossed.

    Another 5lbs next week means I would be allowed to treat myself to something - being eyeing up 3 Bettie Page dresses but in the same light I'm tempted by another round of body wraps or arasys, decisions...decisions. I also need to have a wardrobe clear out soon - for the time being the work dresses can stay as I can just put a belt with them and they will still fit just about, I just resent buying new clothes for work bizarrely so I'll have to have a look at some dresses, like the Bettie Page ones, that will do me for work and for going out.

    In an ideal world I'd like to lose about 8lbs next week, but I don't see that happening really so I'll be happy with another 4 or 5lbs. Having just had a quick think about it another 4lbs or 5lbs a week for the next 4 weeks will completely overshoot my target of 20lbs for the 6 weeks - here's hoping.

    This week I have been completely craving cheese - I have discovered that plastic cheese i.e. cheesestrings spaghetti and the Laughing Cow Extra Light have no carbs and very few cals, I have however resisted the temptation but it's good to know for future reference, especially for my weekend away.

    The MediLipo is all sorted too so I start that on the 30th and I think I have 6 booked before I go away on the 15th so obviously I'll be being annoying and reviewing that in my diary as I go through it.

    This weekend is now going to be largely dedicated to marking due to the weather and the fact that the boy is trapped in the village he lives in so can't get out, and making a decision about a new hair colour.

    Hi
    Can I say I think your treat should be the body wrap because the way you are losing weight the dresses will be too big in no time. Just a thought.

    And so the snow begins again - if it's like Friday and the forecast is bang on, I highly doubt work will be on - just as well I brought the world supply of marking home with me, unlike the boss who brings nothing home with him (those of you who regularly read will know he's a massive pain in my neck)

    Ok I'm going to go with a body wrap - especially if school is closed for the next couple of days, I'll pop up the village in my break from marking and get one done. I also need to get a whole body exfoliation booked for the start of February - busy girl me!

    Still waiting to hear if I get my leave of absence approved to go to Fiji - counterarguement here is 3 days off sick in nearly 4 years and I'm not asking to be paid for the time I'm off. I guess the only bonus of them saying no is that it will give me the kick up the backside I need to go and get a new job.

    Although I have been good and I have been looking on the TES for new jobs - may go after the HoD job I've found, that starts in Sept.

    The joys of minorly being allergic to soy...

    Soy is to me as lactose is to some, we'll I thought I'd gotten away with it, the two years I've been on and off exante no cramps no rashes I have been fine. Until 3am when I started having the most horrific cramps ever - I'm hoping it's just a coincidence really as obviously never having had a reaction before and it's always in the past only been through eating the meat subsitutes - soy sauce I'm fine with in small doses for example.


    Right best get to organising my stuff - knowing my luck I won't be organised and school will go on as normal

    Thank you ladies - just need to establish if my soya allergy is flaring up or not now!

    Yeah at the 89 it was at I think it's worth a try - it's whether it gives 200 worth of results will be the ultimate test, if it is, another session before Fiji.

    She's only in Bracknell so might be worth looking into if people are in the area - my last session is end of Feb but will be posting results and any inch loss/weight loss after each session.

    I done most of my planning last week so just marking for me to catch up on.

    I'd rather like this snow to make up it's mind, either it wants to snow or it doesn't - jeez.

    Looks like I'm on track for another 5lber week this week having had a sneaky look at the scales but we shall see x

    So near yet so far...

    4lbs, so close to the 5lbs I thought I'd get but there we go a loss is still a loss. Currently spending the day marking, as I was out hunting bridesmaid dresses yesterday and had a date last night (may have fluffed up the date but more on that another day)

    Very much looking forward to my MediLipo on Wednesday and probably should find my tape measure to do some before and after measurements.

    For now back to work and trying to work out how to unfluff up my date.

    MediLipo Session One Review

    Ok so we're on one hour after my first MediLipo session and not too bad. In total I lost 2 inches (Area 1: -0.5, area 2: -1, area 3: -0.5).

    Literally it is just feels a bit warm on the area it is focusing on. There are four big paddles with are strapped to your stomach and you're errmmm 'cooked' for 15 minutes on one side before the paddles get moved to the other half of the stomach and repeat the cooking process.

    Other thing to bear in mind with the treatment is that you will need to do some form of cardio within 12hrs of the treatment as you will need to mobile the fat that's been whacked into your lymphatic system - my lady has some equipment that I can use there which makes it easier especially if I can't be bothered to trek to my own gym.

    Only issue is if you are inked in the area that you are focusing on it is recommended that you don't go through with the treatment as it can cause the ink to run and bleed in the area around the tattoo.




    Now onto marking and focusing in on weigh in day and I will post about session 2 and losses on Friday. Hopefully when it's all done I'll see if she can send me the photos and I'll post them up here too

    I'm in my final two sessions and have decided not to measure again until the last one just as a little pick me up surprise.

    I haven't really been posting lately as controlled assessment stress meant I was in work late every night, then I had the Brighton Tattoo Convention - oh and I have become single again all within the last 2 weeks or so..still onwards and all that jazz.

    Well I'm on a protein and salad week as I don't think I could cope this week on the diet without breaking it, so will be starting back on the shakes next week.

    It's fine we're going to stay friends he just can't cope with a relationship at the minute - just all a bit meh - but yay for new ink to nurse.
