Florida Fit

Can't believe my scales this morning. They say I'm 22.9, thats 7lb off over night. I dont actually think that's physically possible. So either I did loose some yesterday and it didn't register, or I need new scales?!?!?!? I didnt have a chance to double or treble check this morning as I had to jump up and rush out. I guess I'll find out tomorrow. It would be amazing if its true, a whole new number.


.........OK so I went back to the scales after I got home and I tried it three times. 1st try was 22.4, my 2nd try was 22.7 and my 3rd try was 22.12. So I'm going to go with my scales appear to be having an off day 🙃

I also decided to check my string, no progress yet, not even half and inch.

I've been looking through my old food diary (boobs be gone) in the SW section to find how much i weighed when I went to Florida in 2016, it was 21.11 (weird as I was at least 10" thinner around the waist, and I was pregnant 🤷‍♀️) I guess the post c-section belly might mean I have to loose a fair bit more weight to fit in those seats now.

Overcast and a bit breezy, but went in the pool anyway. Definitely a lot busier than I expected. No one seems to know about social distancing. Kids are definitely not social distancing, they are everywhere. 20200718_104901.jpg

Ah well, the week is over. I wasnt all 100% on plan. I had 2 meals out, and i put on a few pound, but it may have been my salt intake as its all but gone now an im 100% back on plan.

That is one thing I seem to keep forgetting to do and that is measurements. Think I will do them tomorrow and see where they are end of August before I go back to work...

Those lbs will soon fall off again now your back on plan. :)

Perhaps once the kids have finished you put the rest straight into the bin.. I know it's a waste but if it's not on your plate then I would bin it.

Well done in getting into the next stone bracket. Keep going you are doing well.:)

Easier said than done lol. Its usually lunchtime when I've had my shake and they've had pasta or baked potato and i just can't help myself. All the while I'm eating it im telling myself that I should just throw it in the bin. Sometimes I even walk it into the kitchen, but it always ends up in my mouth before it reaches the bin

Weigh day today. Im totally bed bound with a bad back......again
So I couldnt make it down the the scales to weigh until about 10pm, and then only very gingerly. But it was worth it. 3lb gone this week

I cant believe how much weight I have lost being bed bound and unable to reach the kitchen to snack haha. Another 3lb in the past few days (although I dont officially record until Tues). I also got my string out and I have definite lost at least an inch around my stomach. Going to see if i can fit the actual measuring tape around there now 🙂

Weigh day and im 5lb down....woooohoooo.
But i went to measure myself again and im back where I started. And yet this week I could see the scales without leaning forward to see over my belly and i fit into a size 20 pj's when im normally 22/24 (although they were stretchy) im so confused, im gonna stick to the scales now, their results make me happy at least.
