Fatty Parry 29: 12 Week Wedding Weight Loss: 4 @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 nine 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 9.2lb. 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. However, my program has slipped and I now need to lose 3.4lb a week to stay on track.

Last week

Well, I’ve seriously got back on track from the disasters that were weeks one and two. Some serious stress came my way; you know how life can be. Eating was/is my coping mechanism. I didn’t quite meet my target weight loss of 3.2lb this week, but I was pretty close; I lost 3lb. Sadly, I still weigh more than I did before the wedding — five weeks ago! What an expensive week of revelry that has proved to be for my general fitness.

Next week

To reach my target of 13st 7lb (189lb) by the 14th October, I now need to lose 3.4lb a week. The amount I need to lose in order to meet my target is slowly creeping up — if I don’t sort this out soon, it will be impossible to healthily reach my goal weight. In order to stay on track, I aim to be 15st 5.8lb (215.8lb) by next Monday. 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)
  • week 4: 07/08/17: 15st 9.2lb (219.2lb)
  • GOAL: 14/10/17: 13st 7lb (189lb)
