Week 1 of #f2f challenge complete and my first weigh in (eek!)

Cannot even begin to describe how ecstatic I am with my week one A New WeighFat to Fit Challenge‘ challenge results! Weighed and measured myself on Saturday morning (a week since starting) and here’s what I’ve lost…

Just goes to show how a week of healthy, balanced meals and exercise (nearly every day) can really make a difference! I’m super motivated now and will hopefully have another good week ahead.

Before all the critics out there go on about how ‘that’s too much to lose in one week’, I suspect a lot of my initial measurements reflected bloating/water retention so don’t worry, I’m realistic enough to know that I cant/wont be losing this amount every week (if I was, there would be something seriously wrong!)

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR:

– The portions we feed ourselves at mealtimes are often far too big compared to what our bodies actually require
– Refined carbs and sugar are the devil – while I miss their yumminess, I don’t miss the effect they have on my body
– Water for the win!
– Snacking is important to keep the metabolism going and to actually stop you from feeling more hungry
– Exercise is a great spirit/mood lifter
– Sharing the journey with others can be hugely motivating and empowering (us challengers have a whatsapp group where share our struggles and triumphs)
