Our expert says:
Thank you for your kind words - they make my day. I am so glad that you have stopped binging and yo-yo dieting and are with Weight Watchers. Your BMI = 22,2 which is actually very close to ideal for your height. I would not actually recommend that you force your body down to 49 kg - this would give you a BMI of 20 (i.e. below the ideal of 22). The exercise will help you to firm up nicely as you can already see with the loss in cm. Cardio exercises will help for the body fat%. 24% is the correct value for normal women according to Prof Tim Noakes. The diet you describe is reasonable, I am just worried that you are not ingesting enough energy to keep up your strenuous exercise schedule. If you start feeling tired and listless please add another 2 low-GI servings of carbs (rye bread, some more muesli, Provitas, etc) to your intake and have a snack before gym in the morning (it can make you very tired to exercise on an empty stomach - as most people don't eat for about 12 hours from supper to waking up).
I am also glad that you have stopped weighing yourself all the time, as this can cause a great deal of stress in slimmers.
