So today was kick-off, the first official day of the Twelve Week Body Transformation Program (12WBT) and I got up early to do my shuffle (I’m starting again because I never got out in the morning again last week after my Monday morning efforts) – determined to make a good start to the week and start as I meant to go along – with daily exercise in the form of a shuffle, followed some nights of the week by extra exercise.
Except of course, being Monday and the first official day of the program I had to weigh-in. Got up, went to the toilet, and got on the scales. And then nearly almost collapsed in tears. Since last Wednesday I have somehow managed to gain 1.4kg. WTF??? I have eaten well, I have exercised, I have done everything right and I’ve gained weight in only 5 days. I was so upset.
But you will be pleased to know that I still got out there and I did my shuffle after I finally got myself dressed and had my little sob over my weight gain. I’ve decided to ignore that number on the scales this morning and only pay attention to my Wednesday Weigh In. On the plus side I did my measurements and I’m happy to announce that over the last 6 weeks I have lost a total of 18cm in total, which makes me pretty chuffed (and also makes it a little easier to ignore that number on the scales).
So here’s to the next four weeks and smashing my fitness test and having more CM’s lost by then.

Hi there! Now don’t you let any negativity creep in, OK? Take today to ponder on those 18 cm!!! What an amazing result. Sometimes your body wants to weep for a couple of days, too – and it does it by storing water ready to release them as tears … so don’t be too down about those ‘tears’ that your body’s stored in the last week!!! Think of the big number drop you’re going to see next week!! Have you done your fitness test? Today’s the day!! Best of luck, Tina. Chin up, smile and remember what you’ve done and where you’re about to go!!
(p.s. my blog has now moved to http://12wbt-upandrunning.blogspot.com/ (work in progress) – see you round. Now SMILE!!) Big hugs x

That great you got out there anyway! I always regret it when I weigh in more than once a week. And with your measurements going down then that is a positive!
