164 days….


until my birthday. It’s not just any birthday, it’s the big 3-0!

I’ll definitely want to celebrate the milestone but I’m currently thinking about how many weeks/weigh in’s I’ve got left until the big day. I’m wondering how much weight I can realistically lose between now and then because I want a fab new dress to wear. I’ve had so many lovely comments from family and friends about what I wore to my friends Wedding that I want to wear another fab outfit. I’ve got my eye on a few more vintage-esque dresses which I’m sure would look amazing so am going to start working towards getting into at least a size smaller than I wear now.

Without actually counting them all, I think its about 23 weigh ins. Realistically that’s at least 23lb I can lose if I lose 1lb per week. I’d love to lose more than that but looking back at how successful my weight loss has been since January, I’ll take 1lb per week. That would take me to 89lb total loss and I’d be over the moon with that! Definitely something to work towards so as of tomorrow I’m on a mission to get   into my birthday outfit. No more excuses or thinking I’ll get away with having a sneaky biscuit here and a sneaky squirt of sauce with my lunch, everything will be written down, tracked properly and pointed. This time last year I’d lost about 3 stone already so back to basics with a renewed goal to look forward to.

I was lucky at weigh in tonight, only gained 0.5lb which I think is great considering what I ate and drank on Saturday. Going to have to be very careful this week but I’m planning everything so hopefully I can’t go too wrong. Zumba’s cancelled tomorrow night so hope to restart my C25k sessions. The weather is beautiful here at the moment so I’m hoping to get out with the dog for a good walkies after work and get some Vitamin D on my skin.

Enjoy the weather if you’ve got the sunshine this week {sig}
