DAY 7(Thursday) - WEIGH IN DAY
I hope my weight at least stays the same this week... I just don't feel like I have lost anything this week...

I was right, didn't lose ANYTHING...: + 0.5lbs! I was actually trying to figure out why this happened... and Vickii suggested that it might be cos I am eating more now... Earlier I was ALWAYS eating less than 20 points but now I eat 18 or more points and sometimes I use my running/exercise to get Activity points to stay within my points allowance... I am gonna stick to this. I was eating less than I should have, too often... and I don't want to do that anymore.

Breakfast
Bran Flakes, semi skimmed milk and apple juice

Lunch
Wholemeal Roll and Egg(fried with tomatoes) - used low calorie spray.

Good job girl....6.5lbs....wow! I am impressed. So that means u have 2.5lbs left. RIGHT!

Do u actually drink H20 when u run. That gives me a stitch.

with this comment moderation thingy I can't remember if I've left a comment or not! lol, anyway if I have, here's another.
If I hadn't tried WW b4 you'd be the perfect incentive to join, keep up the good work. I've registered for the race for life at last.

@CG Me? Not run anymore? My first love? LOL!

@Kuesoom LOL!!! 2.5lbs? How about we meet halfway? I thought I had 7.5lbs left... let's make it 5? ;-)

Oh yeah I drink water when running... I want to try to drink as much as I can before running but I am always worried I will need the 'ladies' while running so I prefer to drink water when my body needs it cos I know I will not be bursting...

@Abi LOL! Maybe I should even take comment moderation off, it was cos of a past issue.

Thank you :-)

Oh, you tried it before...? You didn't like it? Can you tell me why? Because I have read some people's comment on WW, they didn't like it cos they didn't like the restriction... Weight watchers has TWO plans now... CORE and POINTS plan... the Core plan you can eat as much as you want but it has to exclude some foods like White Rice... and Points Plan, you have to stay within your points but you can eat anything, you can save points, you can have Activity points from exercise so you can increas your intake... I chose the Points plan because I feel it's a better way to learn how to eat...
What's the date of your Race For Life?

LondonBuki said...

Aahhhh Kuesoom, I want to make it a rounded figure... like 1 stone: 14lbs... I want to fit into that skirt comfortably... what to do? LOL :-)

Vickii said...

Well done Buki! You look so good in that picture on your side bar!

LondonBuki said...

Thank you Vickii :-) :-) :-)
