Week 2 weigh in

I lost 5lbs this week! I can't believe it and I'm now only 1lb off my first stone, 2lbs off my 5% and 3.5lbs away from being in the 19 stone bracket!

I've really enjoyed it and not feeling deprived at all. In fact I've actually felt guilty at times feeling like I can't possibly eat food like this and lose weight. I think it comes from all the fad diets and that being on a 'diet' in the past meant going without. This week I have had chocolate, I have eaten out, we have had a Chinese takeaway, I have had pudding and so on. Basically I have enjoyed my food and eaten small amounts of the foods I've craved.

I've done alot of activity as well so I do feel like it was a deserved loss. I'm going to really push myself this week because I would love to lose 2lbs and get my 5%. I've also done the second run in the couch to 5k programme. I found it alot harder than the first run but still completed it so was really proud of myself. I'm hoping to fit in 3 runs this week as I really want to progress and improve my fitness level.

All in all I've had a fantastic week, still feel crazy positive and motivated! Loving feeling so in control and looking forward to another week!
