Weigh-In Wednesday #4 - My Herbalife Journey ♥

Well here I am still sticking to my healthy lifestyle and my Herbalife diet, I actually can't believe it but I'm so proud of myself for sticking to this. I can honestly say that Herbalife is something that works for me, it may not work for other people but for me it's changing my eating patterns, food choices, has helped me to tone up and is spurring me on to lead a more active lifestyle. This week I stepped up the active side of my new healthy living regime and started going on hour long walks with my son and partner. It actually feels great to get out of the house and get active. I'm exhausted when I get home from walking up and down hills but it's so worth it. I think YouTube workouts again as they were so effective last time and I could really feel the burn, I need to step up my activity and get into a routine.

I am still eating the same foods as previous week preferring to stick to a routine and I'm actually not sick of eating the same thing over and over again yet. I actually can't believe that it's been four weeks now since I'm ate bread, chocolate, crisps, biscuits... I better stop listing or else I might start craving again! I did have some down moments this week, the first being when I passed out at a blogger event, mortifying to say the least! I put it down to not being able to eat before I went but being sick for three days after I think I may have had a bug, thankfully I'm all better now. I also was quite naughty and had a mojito at the weekend but I deserved a pick me up after being so sick.

As I stated in my update last week I need to eat 117g of protein a day and I wanted to show you two foods I've been eating recently. I was eating Muller Light Greek Style Lemon yogurts which have 6.9g of protein but they are so expensive! I found a great alternative in Aldi which costs about €1.70 or so (I think!) and tastes just as good, if not even better. They're Brooklea Greek Style Lemon Yogurts which have 6g of protein per pot. I've also been eating Ocean Rise Tuna Flakes which are also from Aldi but to be honest these aren't the nicest tuna available and I've only just noticed that these have about 23.5g of protein as they're 135g tins when drained whereas tuna from Tesco and Aldi has 27g so I think I'll be buying them in future. These are just simple things to add to your everyday diet to increase your protein intake. I highly recommend the Greek yogurts, they are delicious!
 So my goal for this week was to lose another 4lbs, did I do it...? Unfortunately not but this week I've lost 2/3lbs (the scales keeps changing each time I step on) which means I've lost 19/20lbs which is still amazing for me nonetheless! To be honest I'm not really seeing a change in my clothes yet apart from my dresses and tops, I even fit into a dress this week which I haven't fit into in ages! It was a great feeling I must say. My tops and t-shirts are also loser and I think my chest may have shrunk down, I think I rest somewhere that the weight goes from your chest/along your collar bone and I can definitely see that. I've not yet weighed in this week with my coach but next week I shall have my measurement loss update (if any has been lost!) so I'm excited to see those stats.

My stats for week 4
Total weight loss - 19/20lbs
Total kg lost - 9kg
BMI - 37 went down to 36

I'm not going to give myself a goal for this week as I don't want to feel disappointed as I feel my weight loss is starting to even out now so I don't think there'll be anymore big drops but every pound counts!

  2. Well done for doing so well Fiona :D I love tuna but these flakes sound a little disappointing. I think Nathan (who likes to do our weekly shop) buys ours from Tesco most of the time :)

    1. I've surprised myself with this too Bintu but it's actually quite easy. I get all the sweetness I need from my lemon Greek yogurts.

  8. Thanks for the review of Aldi's Greek yogs - noticed them last week but usually buy their low/no fat natural big pots as they contain no added sugar. Unfortunately they wont suit the diabetics in the household so I'll have to hide them! Have you ever tried to hide sweet goodies from a D? They got a keener nose than my labrador!
