WeightWatchers Week 5

Thursday, February 14, 2008

I hope it doesn't take FOREVER for me to lose 8-10 more pounds! I can at least console myself with this pic:


I cannot believe that my waist was 30.5 inches on January 1st(I took measurements on New Years Day o, lol)... It's now 28.5 inches... So I'm pleased I have lost 2 inches from my waist :-) The smallest I can remember my waist being(at least when I looked healthy and not like a starved lepacious chicken) is 27.5inches, which I am not even trying to get any smaller than.

Oh... I went to see my friend today(that's where I ate my lunch and dinner) and she told me that she couldn't believe it was me when she saw me waiting to be picked up at the station.

It won't take forever! i'm sure you're fitter even if the scale doesn't show it!

Did I hear you say forever, my girl, you are on track. Dont despair. More than I could say for myself. As for my progress on WW, dont even go there.

I've been resting this week. Went for the Brooks Shoe Party @ Runners Need, Canary Wharf yesterday. Was trying to stalk Abimars but she hadnt yet arrived when I got there. (Smile)

Abimars said...

Hiya,

at this rate you'll probably be done in a few weeks

yep 2lbs thanks for noticing, been having a bit of writers bloc and haven't posted in a while.

my race is Regents Park 19th of July as well.

tried WW for a month stuck to my daily points but didn't lose any weight and was always hungry.

@CG aka stalker, went to runners need on Monday there was an asics gait analysis on that day that I had booked in advance.

Lekki said...

Thanks for stopping by - I like your blog :)

Sorry Girls, Had to pull out of the July 19 Race for Life. Running a 10K the next day. Registered for the Race for life in the City in June instead.

Congratulations on losing two inches. You've definitely got me interested in WW. There's a group that meets where I work but I'm too shy to weigh-in in front of my colleagues. You'll get to your goal in no time at the rate you're going.

kemi said...

Way to go LB!!! You see you'll soon reach your goal. I'll try and join WW soon :) As always I'm good with my exercise but slip up on the eating bit, maybe WW will help me :) Later..........

LondonBuki said...

@Kemi I am definitely fitter and I am glad I have been taking my body measurements :-)

@CG Thank you... it's so annoying when the weight just stays put...
When are you gonna be serious about WW?????

@Abi I really hope I'll be done in 2 months(MAX) so I can become a lifetime member and go for weigh ins for FREEEE!
I'll email you closer to the race so I can meet you before or after the race :-)
Sorry it didn't work out for you... I am rarely hungry, only if I am out too late and need to eat dinner.

@Lekki Thanks :-)

@CG You're missing out!!! LOL!
Vickii, Abi and I'll be there!

@Gbemi's Piece Thank you :-)
I think you should join WW, just let me know if you need any help cos I think I have learned a lot now :-)
You can even try it out for a month and see what you think...

@Kemi :-) :-) :-)
I think you should join because it really teaches you good eating habits... let me know of you do, okay?

Abimars said...
