Day 17

This is the 17th day I have been doing the weight watchers pro points diet and I have had huge success in that I have lost 3.9kg in two weeks but this week I am struggling.

I just want all the stuff that I shouldn't have and I have had a couple of things like hot chips which is one of my biggest downfalls that and coffee milk. I have still calculated my points and only gone a couple over of my daily allowance which is allowed and I am just deducting them off my weekly points.

But I am just struggling to get my mind in the right place. This with the cold weather we are experiencing at the moment makes you just want a warm bed and comfort food.

So I have decided I just need to get back to it and make sure I eat within my points for the rest of the week because I am loving the huge numbers that I am losing at the moment. I am now 5kg down with 25kg to go on my goal. It seems like such a long way but I am breaking it down into smaller chunks and the goal is to lose another 15kg by Christmas which I worked out to be less than 0.70kg a week. I think that is definately achievable.

How do you all get through the struggling phase? I am suprised I am having it as it usually comes from a lack of results. Oh well I am just going to take each day as it comes.


  1. I'm still in a struggling phase too. Just can't seem to get my act together. So much stress at the moment...

    But, normally in a struggling phase I go for a walk. I generally have to talk myself into it, especially in bad weather. But it starts out "just put your shoes on, you don't have to go anywhere, just get the shoes on" then "well, you've got your shoes on so why don't you just go for a five minute walk, doesn't have to be longer but just five minutes" then invariably once I'm out and the heart is pumping harder and endorphins being released I walk for up to an hour. And the whole time I generally spend thinking about how I can make it work and overcome the struggling phase. It works for me.

    You are doing so well!

  2. Hang in there hun! You can do this. In fact you're kicking its BUTT. I've booked out Sunday for you. Can't wait to catch up.
