Week 1: Here is the details from our week 1 weigh in….weighing in at 13st 0.5lb (yikes!!!) I’ll be honest, I was quite nervous starting off… but willing to do my best!

Week 2: At the weigh in on Monday after the first week, I lost 4lbs! Chuffed that the hard work is paying off!!! Its not easy but the results are great. I am so happy with myself. Put in the max effort and got an amazing result.

After 10 days on the plan, this is what I’ve lost so far! Yak!!

Week 3: At the weigh-in at the end of week 2, I’ve lost another 3.5lbs, so that’s 7.5lbs in total so far. Chuffed!! I found week 2 tough, I think it must have been the sugar leaving my body. I was a bit crabby at times and wanted chocolate but I resisted, as the scales showed!

This is what I’m up to in week 3….hoping to knock a few more lbs off for next weeks weigh-in!!!! Sweat it off……

Warning!! This Video contains steamy scenes……

Wow, that Zumba class yesterday was fabulous. Full on and fabulous. And just to make sure I did my upmost there, my PT Fran joined me! We were shaking our hips like mad! But seriously, if you like your exercise to be fun – this is for you! Next one Tuesday 11am Integral Bettystown, I'll be there if anyone wants to join me! @Integral Fitness and Leisure Centre LMFM

Week 4!

Down another half a pound this week. Now, to be honest, after the week I put in I was a little bit disappointed with that but then…..my period arrived this morning and I reckon that’s why its just half a pound. I hope so anyways because I was so good. Exercised hard, ate well, didn’t drink alcohol or eat any rubbish. Dranks loads water too – really trying my best and I actually found it a bit better this week, I wasn’t craving the bad stuff nearly as much!

This is the leaders with our Personal Trainers and Gerry from LMFM at the week 3 weigh-in. So far, we’ve lost ALOT of weight but will we all reach our targets…..tune in again next Tuesday so see how we get on!


Ok, so I may not be a Zumba queen just yet but I am getting there! The main thing is to move as much as you can and sweat like mad!! Its about having fun and feeling good and I am giving it my all!

At the end of week 4, I’m down another 1lb. So that’s 9lbs in total in 4 weeks! Not bad I reckon. I am aiming for another couple of lbs by the end of week 6 and I am doing my very best, exercising and eating well do make it happen. But this is not just a 6 week thing for me, I am going to stay on with Integral and keep going after this challenge ends. I want to lose a further 1.5 stone by the end of the year and I think that’s achievable! Here is the podcast and pics from last night!

And we’re done!! In 6 weeks I lost 15.5lbs and my sanity! Haha, just kidding! It was tough but happy with such a great result. I’ll have a pep in my step going out with my husband next weekend in a dress a size smaller than when I started this challenge! Thanks to Fran for pushing me, Guy for minding me on the days when I was in Bettystown, Lorraine at Integral for all her hard work and organising and to Gerry Kelly for thinking of me for this in the first place. I am very grateful to you all. And I’ll be sure to share some snaps when I squeeze into that dress!!! Here is the podcast for anyone who wants to catch up on it:
