My Story - How to lose half my body weight?
Well today was the first step to the future, and I have to keep remembering.
I met with my Cambridge Consultant today and got my first set of packs, I have decided to use the Sole Source option as honestly I think I need a complete break from food and everything that surrounds it.
I guess as this is my new Diary I should explain what got me to this point so here goes.
I should be happy! This time two years ago if someone had told me I would have my own home, a loving and devoted husband who loves me for me and not a number on a scale I would laugh at them and tell them not to be stupid, but here I am and not only that I have just had a promotion to a job that I have wanted all my life.....so why am I not happy? I should be right??
Well here goes... in 26 years old 5ft 7 and weight 22 stone exactly, I need to lose half of my own body weight! I should have lost weight for the wedding and that was a plan but then in was pulled forward a year and quite honestly I used the change of date as an excuse not to try. I missed out on wedding dress shopping as I went to a plus size shop and tried on three dresses picking the one that fit ( I was lucky as it was stunning) and I did feel special on my big day, the photos did not overly upset me either.... good photographers are worth there weight in gold.
I have managed to bury my head in the sand thinking I was still the weight I was after a slimming world diet that took me to 16stone then last Tuesday we went to Alton Towers.... the most eye opening day out in my life.... Smiler ride... fine no problems...Rita again all good. Then it came to oblivion....sat down and that harness was not closing for anyone... I had to get up and walk of the ride, in front of my husband... I could have thrown myself in front of the ride. I was so embarrassed.
Then the next day a nice walk out to national trust house, could I walk up the hill no, so on returning home I got on those scales.... old mechanical ones that only go up to 20 stone ( I say only like its a small number)
So I had two options, I could carry on ignoring it or I could do something about it. So I had a look online and found the Cambridge Diet, three consultants later and I found the one, after arranging to meet her today and spending an hour with her going over my options I am all set to start tomorrow just need to pick up a shaker from a supermarket.
The book says to keep a diary and to put 3 reasons down on why you want to loose weight so this is It the start of my future.
1. I want to be a Mummy, I want to be a mummy who can run around and play and not worry about people looking.
2. I don't want to be worried about fitting in anything ever again, unless its a case of be worried my Jeans will be to big.
3. I want to be able to go to Monsoon or Oasis to get my evening dress for my works awards ceremony next year in April and not have to order something online.
First Three mini Targets.
1.Get through the first week 100%
2. Get below 21 stone.
3.Be able to walk up the 7th tee at the golf course without stopping.
Any support would be great, I will be having a read from the other diary's to keep me going :O)
