Weight loss with Club Kylie: Week 7

I feel like I tell you that every week has been a tough week, but this week was a tough week! I was hungry, a lot. I was finding that, even when I knew I’d eaten enough, I was still hungry, that fact made it very difficult not to overeat/snack.

There has been little to no exercise this week either, only 1 dog agility training session because the other was rained off, no walks (outside of the daily dog walk each afternoon), no yoga, no nothing.

All in all, it wasn’t looking good for the weight loss goals I set last week.

But, despite the hunger and the lack of exercise, I did it! Let me tell you that again: I DID IT! I lost the 2lbs that I set as my goal last week to get me down to 16 stone! That means, in 7 weeks I have lost 8lbs, it might not be great shakes to you, but I am so proud of myself I could cry!

Not only that, I have been over a week without eating ANY chocolate. That is HUGE to me, I used to eat a bar of chocolate nearly every night, and now I just don’t fancy it, and I’m sure it’s down to Thinking Slimmer‘s chocoholic pod. Chocolate has been my crutch since I quit self-harming and smoking, and now I am dealing with life without it, and it’s not stressful or hard, it’s just happened!

I’m not seeing visual evidence of my weight loss yet, and I haven’t dropped that dress size yet, but that will come in time.

    Hooray! I know what you mean about still feeling hungry. I hate when that happens. For me, it sometimes stems from boredom or some emotional issue. I had to retrain myself (not easy, still slip-up!) to reach for food as my first response to anything. When my husband asked me if I had a reward in mind for my first weight-loss goal (that was medical, I have a “vanity” goal of another 5-10 lbs), the first thing I thought of was cheescake! But then I remembered that when I first started, I set a non-food reward of a massage or a pedicure. I also found it helpful to make a list of go-to non-food things to do when my brain/stomach/tastebuds told me I was hungry but it really wasn’t an actual time to eat. Please let me know if you get tired of my suggestions or input, you will not hurt my feelings. I want to be supportive but not annoying.

      You are far from annoying, I really appreciate your support and ideas.
      A list of things to do when feeling hungry is a great idea!

    Congrats on reaching your 16st target, I have a terrible vice for chocolate, I only syn it once a week on weigh in night!

    Congratulations on reaching 16 stone!
    I’m having a hungry day today, I’ve lost count of the amount of yoghurts I’ve eaten to try and fill myself up!
    I love chocolate too, chocolate cereal bars are keeping that craving away…for now at least!

    The visual will come, I assure you and you will notice your clothes getting looser! Even now, I still look in the mirror and don’t see what everyone else sees – in my mind, I am still a TellyTubby. My mind will catch up with me at some point I am sure!

    Well done on your fantastic weight loss so far and the 2lb loss last week – you have done so well giving up chocolate for so long, you should be very proud! Thank you so much for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday and for your lovely comment – hope you can join up again this week! Sim xx
