Cracked 15 Stone

October 7, 2007 at 11:57 am 7 comments

Weigh day today and came in at 208.6 lbs. In the British system, this is 14 stone 12.6 pounds. A stone is an old imperial measure still used in the UK, and it’s equivalent to 14 pounds. I have been over 15 stone (210 lbs) for quite a while now, so cracking the 15 stone barrier is a big psychological mile stone for me. The lowest I’ve been in the last couple of years was 14 stone 7, and that was after a week’s juice-only detox. It all went on again within a few days. So that’s my next mini-goal. Five and a half pounds to go.

Exercise has been good this week, and I am completely on schedule. Eighteen days into my new plan and I have ticked off every single workout. I am very proud of myself for this and looking forward to doing 4 weeks without missing a workout. In the Weight Watchers system, I clocked 23 exercise bonus points last week and am set to beat that this week.

Also on the points front, going below 15 stone means my daily allowance goes down a point. I have been struggling to eat 23 points (my previous allowance) every day because I eat so much plant-based food, which is point-free. I know from experience that coming in too low beneath your allowance on a regular basis tends to slow weight loss rather than speed it up as it slows down your metabolism. So I’ve been making up my points with a variety of not-so-healthy foods. Desserts, WW chocolate bars, glass of wine with dinner. Two or three ‘treats’ a day sometimes. So I’m glad to come down to an allowance of 22 points, although I think I’ll keep the glass of wine with dinner – very civilised.

    Keep at it, though. You’ll get there eventually with determination and a bit of will power.

    Congrats on reaching your goal! That’s wonderful – success breeds success and the more you lose the easier it is to keep doing it!

    It sucks that men can reshape their bodies so much more quickly – it is the female hormones actually, which is completely unfair. It also makes it harder for them to understand why we can’t do it as quickly. Grr.

    My boyfriend is the same way as your husband. If he *thinks* about losing weight, he does. Sheesh.

    Congrats on cracking 15stone!
