The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that I’ve not published a weight loss update since the last one back in February! I have to confess that what with a minor breakdown, Spanish coursework, a holiday, and just, well, life, I fell off the healthy eating wagon a bit! I put a few pounds back on but nothing too drastic (which is surprising given the amount of chocolate, takeaways and wine that have made it past my lips in the last few months).
Anyway, we’re going on holiday in a few weeks so we’re having a healthy month in the hope of shifting a few pounds before then. And then after our holidays I’ve got a few months before I’ll be back on stage for the first time in two years! I’m dancing in a production of Aida (The Musical) and I definitely need to be a bit thinner, and a lot fitter, if I’m not going to collapse on stage every night! I’m getting plenty of exercise at rehearsals at least so that should help.
There is another reason to get back to my pre-baby weight (or rather pre-honeymoon weight!) and that is by the winter we’ll probably be thinking about trying for another baby and I don’t want to start another pregnancy still carrying weight from the last one.
So anyway, here are the all important stats – I’ve included my starting stats but also those from my last update.
Weight: 12st 12lb (Feb: 12st 11lb) (Dec: 13st 8lb) – lost 10lb
Waist: 33.5 inches (Feb:33.5 inches) (Dec:37 inches) – lost 3.5 inches
Hips: 43 inches (Feb:43 inches) (Dec:45.5 inches) – lost 2.5 inches
Bust: 40 inches (Feb:40 inches) (Dec:42 inches) – lost 2 inch
I’m still not going ‘on a diet’ – just being mindful of what I eat (and drink) and of my portion sizes, and making sure I get plenty of exercise too. I’ll be back with another update before we go on holiday – all positive thoughts and encouragement welcome!
