the DREADED weigh-in...

...is not too bad this week! I've managed to lose what I gained after I lost my mini target *deep breath* I am not going to get excited like I did the first time round because I feel that didn't help me at all. Made me too cocky. So three pound loss we meet again. That takes me back to a total of twenty pounds gone. A stone and eight horrible pounds down. So now I can keep my stone and half sticker and not feel like a fraud. On a slightly more positive note I feel thin today. lol. It's true. I feel like I can tell in my body the three pounds has gone which is weird because yesterday I felt like I'd gained five ginormous pounds. 














To help me stay motivated to exercising... not that it is a major problem. Like I said yesterday, it's just starting it that I find hard once I'm doing it I am AWESOME. True I just wanted to buy some funky stickers. Any ways on Jessica's blog I first saw she was using stickers on a calender to mark off when she exercised. I thought this was a really good idea. You would be able to see clearly all the times you'd gone to the gym and all the times you haven't. Also since my calendars pretty empty of events I thought it would be a nice way to spruce it up :D Never got round to doing it.... then Ang's blog I saw she was now using stickers so I thought fuck it I am jumping on the stickers and exercise band wagon. *nods* got me some funky coloured spotty stickers to record gym, steps and wii fit stuff. Also some silver stars for when I lose weight and an un-smiley face for when I don't. ALSO I totally forgot I signed up to the goverment's anti obese health kick Change for Life (those are the funky exercise stickers above) and they sent me some awesome stickers to monitor my fruit, veg and exercise.
Below are the fruit and veg stickers. There's a chart too.... but it was empty so no pointing showing that....

Must go prepare exam stuff. Another sunny day spent in the library *sigh*
I lost three pounds this week life is good. Repeat.

way to go on your loss. And way to go on the stickers.
It is hard when you get cocky and find yourself going backwards. It is amazing how easy it is to ruin all the hard work we do.
But you are doing great - more power to you!! :o)
take a pic of your calander at the end of May (this month is nearly over, so I figured May would be full of stickers!!)

Hey! I can't read your blog. Purple on black is hard to see on my monitor.

Not to tell you what to do or anything.... I had to highlight the text to see what you wrote.

Love love love the stickers.

WTG on the 3 pounds!

You ROCK!

Congrats on the loss!!! Now I need stickers too, stickers n knickers---a good excuse to go shopping!

antgirl said...

Wow!! With exams breathing down your neck, I applaud your loss. The stickers look fun!

I haven't bought it yet, but I am aiming to acquire a pedometer soon. I think I need something like that for when I'm not working out.

Glad you like exercise. I do, too, once I get started. Once in awhile I'm not in the mood for it, but once I start, I'm good. Usually these days, I look forward to it. It makes me feel good. :)

I love the sticker idea! I wish I had a calendar to do it myself, it looks like a good motivator. You gotta get all of the

Those are some kickass stickers. I want some!

Did you guys have that whole Lisa Frank obsession over in the UK? It was bacially a bunch of shiny stickers of like unicorns and dolphins and stuff but it was ALL THE RAGE over here in the states during my childhood. I still have a sticker fetish because of it! When I get my "Fight Fat Phobia" stickers in the mail, and I send you yours, I'll try to remember to throw in some glittery ones from my collection for your exercise calendar. :)

I use stickers, too! Shamelessly stole the idea from someone, but I can't remember who. I use different colour stars to represent different types and intensities of exercise :)
