Move it to Lose it - Week 7

Move it to lose it - 12 Week Challenge

Starting weight: 75.2kg 
Previous weight: 73.5kg 
Current weight: 72.2kg

How is that for a loss! I am so happy with myself this week - 1.3kg gone! I did have a few slip ups still but in general I ate well, didn't over eat and I exercised a fair bit! Seems the secret to weight loss is to eat healthy food, eat the right amount of food and to exercise - who would have thought of that?

So this is how I did on last weeks goals...
  1. Eat reasonable portion sizes at every meal - big tick 
  2. Eat healthy meals - except for one dessert in the week - I may have eaten some chocolate that I shouldn't of and I had a schnitzel at the pub on Thursday
  3. Drink at least 2L of water every day - big tick
  4. Use the Wii Fit 5 times - tick
  5. Go for at least 2 walks with the girls - only went on one walk - but oh well
  6. Keep a food journal so that I can see where I am going wrong - done!
So my goals next week are the same - hopefully I can kick some more ass!

Woo Hoo!! What a great week!

Do you think writing down what you ate each week helped?

Alicia (The Red Deer) said...

I think so - made me think more before I ate ;)

Writing it down is what works... makes you more conscious with what you put in your mouth.

Keep it up.

Great work! That is fantastic. I had a bad week this week. I got a new job so I went out for celebratory dinner at the pub which funnily enough was a schnitzel and chips and maybe a few drinks too. I am going to try and cut down on my sugar intake this week. I eat way too many sweets and too much softdrink as well so hopefully cutting back will help.

I agree - having to document every morsel that goes into your mouth makes you stop and think if you really need it.
Congratulations :)
