Earlier this year (New years day) to be exact, I started Slimming World. I initially had 6 stone 5 lb to lose. All went really well to begin with and for quite some time.
By Easter I had lost 2 stone and was attending classes every Saturday at 8 am. I was pleased as punch and my health felt so much better. I looked better too and had dropped from a size 20 to a size 16.
Then it all went wrong.
I ate loads of the kids Easter chocolate, went on holiday and came off plan and then I stared skipping sessions. I have now put 1 stone back on. it is amazing how quickly it goes back on. I feel sluggish and fed up with myself and my back aches again. Just pants.
this week I posted this great quote over on Facebook and I keep thinking about it. It is time to restart my journey and be tenacious.
I have to look at what worked last time
- Attending classes no matter what every single week
- Doing a specific SW shop every week
- Doing a meal plan EVERY week
- Eating breakfast every day
Because these things worked I am going to do all them all again. I am also going to keep a diary and keep an accountability record here on my blog of my weekly weight loss.
Two of my blogging peers who have both lost around three stone since Christmas, Kate form WitWitWoo and Carol from Lipstick and Lace they both post great pics of how they used to look and how they are doing. I have found their sharing incredibly motivating . So I have decided maybe blogging my journey may help me stay on track too.
So I am starting again. This is my week 1 and today I weigh 14 stone 3. I want to get to 8 stone 10 so I have 5 stone and 5 lb to lose.
I am determined to do this.
I know I can lose the weight. I need to hold on. Just do it each and every day. Stick to what I know works and follow great role models. Stick to the diet. Slimming world works for me.
I’ve got this. I would love you to keep me company on my journey and encourage me and of course share your slimming tips!
