First weight in - phew :)
I'm really relieved - have been for my first weigh in today and I've lost 7lb! I'm really happy as I was a bit worried I wouldn't lose (for some silly reason as I've been following the plan 100% despite being away for a two day conference and dealing with a conference dinner and drinks etc).
I often feel really vulnerable when it comes to stepping on the scales in front of someone - as if I'm going to be judged if it doesn't go the right way. I know that's my issues, mostly, but still means the weigh in is a little anxiety provoking. Still, avoiding it tends to lead to me slowly gaining weight (which won't do). Trying to remind myself that I am not the sum total of what the scales say - but I am still very happy that it worked out well this week. Fingers crossed it inches down a little next week too.
3lb is still great, though - imagine picking that up in a bag. Pretty hefty
I'm following the Cambridge Weight Plan at Step 2 (which is a low calorie diet, not a 'very low calorie' one). That means I can do a bit of exercise and eat some real food too. I use FitStar (an app on my iPhone) to guide my workouts (which are short bursts ... about 10 mins each). I'm trying to be generally active - walking everywhere I can - and my plan is to start new activities as the weight starts to shift. Today I had a go at interval training with my hubby - fast jogging by the river for 30s, then quick walking to recover for 90s (repeating as often as I can - which today was only 6 times, but I'm guessing i'll get better as I get used to it). Was super-impressed as I'd usually avoid doing it somewhere people may see me (feeling embarrassed about my size) but today I ran on a riverside path even though people were out walking their dogs. One lady said 'that looks fun, what you two are doing' (in a non-sarcastic tone) ... I was thankful she didn't fall over laughing at me!
What about you? Hope you're having a good week

Hi I've just joined this blog today, looking for support to lose weight.... A Lot of weight ... I'm 19st12lb, and would like to lose 12 pound by Easter to start. My biggest downfall is lunch, I'm off bread so that's a start, and I'm currently doing a 2 mile walk each evening.
Any tips would be much appricated, thanks
