New Year, New Me... Week 1

So Thursday saw the end of my first week on the 5:2 diet, and trying to move more. I was eager to step on the scales as my clothes are already fitting better, even though I don't feel deprived, and the increase in the water (or in my case, squash) has seen an improvement in my skin too. Bonus!
I've notice my face looking slightly slimmer already, as I have seemed to have lost water retention in my neck. Not masses, but enough for me to notice.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will have noticed that I have invested in the Fitbug Orb, to help me monitor my movements, and attempt to increase it, after watching the Katie Hopkins My Fat Story. It is actually really hard to reach 10k steps in a day, without a visit to the gym. I have only managed in once in the 5 days I've had it so far. I have made it to the gym twice this week, once for an interval run (switching between running and walking) and once for a swim. Daddy M has been working away, so been unable to go again with both girlies under my care.
So considering for 5 days this week, I have eaten chocolate, cheese toasties and biscuits, I was unsure what the scales would say.

Needless to say, they moved in the direction I was hoping... so the results are in....... WEEK 1....

This will be my weight loss badge...reminding me where I have started from!

Its not a huge weight loss, as I was kind of secretly hoping for, but I have certainly lost inches... my belt can be done tighter already!
Imagine what I could have lost if I wasn't still clearing out the Christmas food on my normal 5 days... my goal is to only loose 1Ib a week, as I think that is sustainable, and will get me to my goal ready for November, when I will be strutting around in a swimming costume/bikini for our 5 year anniversary around the notorious Discovery Cove in Orlando.... if that's not an incentive, I don't know one! Bring on the slow and steady, and so far.... easy weight loss!
How are you getting on with your weight loss resolutions? I would love to hear feedback.
