12 Week Wedding Weight Loss: 3 @ww_uk @weightwatchers

Introduction

Earlier this year, my weight peaked at 16st 12lb (236lb). I had never been so fat. And I felt it. With a family wedding looming, and having a Body Mass of over 30 (= “Obese Class 1”), I decided to take action and sort my life out. Hence, I went on a 13 Week Wedding Weight Loss program (weeks: 1 2 3 4 5 7 9 10 11 12 13). Click here for a quick explanation of the ins-and-outs, but the short of it is this: having a Body Mass of over 30 in a suit at a wedding in the sun in Spain is not a good look!

I lost weight and, whilst I didn’t reach my target, I made serious steps towards it and learnt a lot along the way.

Now I have another wedding in twelve ten weeks’ time. So I’ve decided to not only carry on trying to fulfil my short-term weight goals, but to move towards the next phase in the transformation of me. 12 Week Wedding Weight Loss will be about achieving Phase 2: getting my weight to the ideal of 13st 7lb. I am currently 15st 11.2lb 15st 12.2lb. The long term goal is to not just get to and maintain a healthy weight, but to get seriously fit. But I’m jumping the gun: that’s Phase 3!

I therefore aimed to lose 32.2 pounds in twelve weeks, a loss of just under 2.7lbs a week.

Last week

Week two was an unmitigated disaster. Some serious stress came my way; you know how life can be. I don’t smoke, I don’t do drugs, I don’t shop; when I need stress relief, my crutch is food! Therefore, I gained four pounds. However, this last week, I stabilised the rocking boat. And, whilst I didn’t lose the weight I wanted to, I didn’t put any on either. I lost 1 lb, which is better than nothing.

Next week

To reach my target of 13st 7lb (189lb) by the 14th October, I need to lose 3.2lb a week. Therefore, I aim to be 15st 9lb (219lb). Here’s a chart of my weight beginning with the previous program (13 Week Wedding Weight Loss).

  • week 0 (last week): 10/07/2017: 15st 13lb (223lb)
  • week 1: 17/07/17: 15st 11.2lb (221.2lb)
  • week 2: 24/07/17: 15st 13.2lb (223.2lb)
  • week 3: 31/07/17: 15st 12.2lb (222.2lb)
  • GOAL: 14/10/17: 13st 7lb (189lb)

I lost weight and, whilst I didn’t reach my target, I made serious steps towards it and learnt a lot along the way.

Now I have another wedding in twelve eleven weeks’ time. So I’ve decided to not only carry on trying to fulfil my short-term weight goals, but to move towards the next phase in the transformation of me. 12 Week Wedding Weight Loss will be about achieving Phase 2: getting my weight to the ideal of 13st 7lb. I am currently 15st 11.2lb 15st 13.2lb. The long term goal is to not just get to and maintain a healthy weight, but to get seriously fit. But I’m jumping the gun: that’s Phase 3!

I therefore aim to lose 32.2 pounds in twelve weeks, a loss of just under 2.7lbs 3.1lbs a week.

Last week

Last week was… an unmitigated disaster. By Thursday, I had lost exactly 2lbs. So far, so good. Unfortunately, my private life took a chaotic turn for several days and the food and drink went out of control. By Monday morning, I had gained four pounds! I am now 15st 13.2lb. What a downer. I think I need to do a post talking about how to manage your weight/diet in stressful circumstances… once I work out how myself! Now I have to lose 3.1lbs a week to meet my goals. But remember: healthy, slow weight loss is better than rapid weight loss! But 3.1lbs a week is still sustainable and reasonable.

Next week

I aim to lose 2.7lb 3.1lb a week. So I hope to be 15st 10.1lb (220.1lb) by my next update. Here’s a chart of my weight beginning with the previous program (13 Week Wedding Weight Loss).

  • week 0 (last week): 10/07/2017: 15st 13lb (223lb)
  • week 1: 17/07/17: 15st 11.2lb (221.2lb)
  • week 2: 24/07/17: 15st 13.2lb (223.2lb)
  • GOAL: 14/10/17: 13st 7lb (189lb)

I therefore aim to lose 32.2 pounds in twelve weeks, a loss of just under 2.7lbs a week.

Last week

Last week was the week after 13 Week Wedding Weight Loss finished, but the week before starting my new 12 week program; basically, it was me trying to settle back into the country and my normal routine. I always find coming back from holiday to be the end of all my best laid plans; the routine goes right out the window. But as it happens, despite a slightly erratic week where I struggled to get back into the swing of things, I still lost 1.8lbs.

Next week

I aim to lose 2.7lb a week. So I hope to be 15st 8.5lb (218.5lb) by my next update. Here’s a chart of my weight on the previous program including the wedding week itself.

  • week 0 (last week): 10/07/2017: 15st 13lb (223lb)
  • week 1: 17/07/17: 15st 11.2lb (221.2lb)
  • GOAL: 14/10/17: 13st 7lb (189lb)
