I wanted to start a new thread for September joiners to track. I'm re-joining slimming world tomorrow evening and I'm nervous, excited and apprehensive all rolled in to one.
I haven't done sw for a few years and everything looks different. I'm determined this time though. I don't want to be dead by the time I'm 40 (I'm 32 now) I want to be healthy and wear clothes I like not just because they fit me.
I'm taking my 14 yr old daughter with me as well as she's piled on the pounds as well and is 14.5st (she's 5'11) and I love that sw teenager system doesn't focus on weight loss but on food education and talking to the teenagers about how to make good choices. I think we will both benefit from this.
I worry that I shouldn't be taking her to a slimming class and that it could be bad for her self image. Feeling really torn hence the apprehension.
I wanted to put some goals down to help me chart what I aim to achieve:
Starting weight 22st 2lb
1st goal: lose 7lb
2nd goal: lose 1st
3rd goal: get to the 19's
These are pretty short term and I will add more with time.
