New Year New Start

Are we all ready for more weight loss in 2010?


I know I’m ready to get back into the swing of things after the Christmas break so let’s have a recap of what we should be doing to make loosing all that weight a little bit easier

Last week I suggested you take an inventory of all the Christmas leftovers; what can be frozen? saved for a forthcoming family gathering? or be brave and just bin what isn’t needed and make a note that next year you only need the small box of Ferrero Rocher!

I’m sure you got some nice clothes for Christmas, if so there’s no better time to have a clear out of your wardrobe and see what it’s time to say goodbye to and those gift vouchers you received, make a worthy list of what you can spend them on

And don’t forget to give your pyjama draw an audit if like me you received new pjs for Christmas

There are plenty of sales on right now so what better time to have your bra size measured correctly and then pick up some new underwear cheaply

The new year is a great time to start a skincare routine especially as I’m sure Santa added some beauty products to your stocking but don’t forget to have a de-clutter of all those lotions and potions past their sell by date

Now it’s time to have a think about how you’re planning to loose weight. For me it’s Weight Watchers as it fits so well with my life style and enables me to think about my eating habits. To do Weight Watchers I use various tools that are invaluable to me

And finally pick 1 day per week to weight yourself and record your losses in the prettiest notebook you received for Christmas and keep a food diary in it

You’ll see that I’ve highlighted in bold links to the full posts on these tips I did for Weight Loss Wednesday’s last year - I do hope you might find some inspiration in them

  1. Very good advice! I am sending you best wishes for a healthy, happy and peaceful new year! Twyla

  2. Great ideas...I love January, it perfect for a clean slate and new beginnings. I went to W.W. yesterday, it's good to be on track again. hugs, Linda

  3. Yup I had to go through my kids clothing and get rid of some old toys after all the new things they recieved for Christmas. I like the idea of tracking your weight losee in a pretty journal. Right now I am typing it into a document in my computer. Good luck with your goals for the new year!

  7. Hi there!
    I lost a lot of weight in Sept/Oct,when I was unwell and could not eat!
    I felt so much better about myself after that! is flippin' hard work making sure that the weight does not go on again!

  8. well, I'm just trying to be good and not constantly graze throughout the day!! Does that count?!

    Keep warm, and drive carefully. Got a nice dollop of heavy snow falling here at the moment.


  9. What is your facial routine?I'm so clueless when it comes to this - I just remove make-up at night and wash my face in the shower in the morning...and moisturise afterwards...I'm guessing that isn't sufficient?! xxx

  10. As you know I love your tips and do them each week so glad you re capped to keep me on track with them all xxx

  11. Oh my you are getting orgainsed!
    Best wishes with the weight loss.
