Week 7 (with photos)

So despite not losing anything last week, I stuck with it and as a result I have lost another pound this week!

Current weight: 12 stone 6 pounds (174 pounds)

Weight loss this week: 1 pound

Total weight loss so far: 1 stone and 2 pounds (16 pounds)

Remaining goal weight loss: 2 stone 12 pounds (40 pounds)

I also thought I’d post some more photos this week which are very interesting:

Day 1, Week 3 and Week 7.

These photos have been extremely helpful and motivational so far – especially as my weight loss slows down – because they allow me to really see a difference where I may not always feel a difference. It’s nice to see that I finally have a chin again! My stomach also no longer sticks out further than my chest, which is a massive relief. Overall, I’m feeling much happier about my image at the moment which is a huge boost and I am looking forward to observing more positive changes in future photos!

This week I focused on treating myself in other ways rather than with food. Prior to starting this diet, one of my worst eating habits would come at night (especially after a long day) when I would plant myself down on the sofa and watch trashy TV whilst mindlessly stuffing my face with delicious foods. I have recently become a huge Lush fan (AKA: a “Lushie”) and so instead of spending money on snacks and/or alcohol, I bought a month’s supply of fun/relaxing bath bombs, bubble bars, creams and scrubs. In the evenings I now keep away from the sofa and instead I enjoy colourful and deliciously scented bubble baths – which have actually proved to be much more relaxing and enjoyable! My skin has certainly improved, if nothing else.

Have any of you discovered different ways of treating yourself rather than with food/alcohol? Feel free to share!
