After having my 3 rd child 7 weeks ago it is time for me to begin the long journey to a healthy weight. I have 5 stone to lose after having 3 children in 3 and a half years.
I have developed a huge sugar habit that I need to kick so I will be attempting to stop eating chocolate etc for a while as I cannot just have one. I am sick and tired of feeling so terrible. My knees and feet hurt, I have no energy and my 3 year old keeps asking me if I'll come swimming with her ( we live abroad so swimming is a very frequent activity). It breaks my heart to say no and at the moment I can use looking after the baby as a reason why I won't swim but in a few months time he will be swimming and I won't have an excuse.
In the past when I have attempted a slimming campaign I find that I give up really easily. As soon as I have a small slip up I give up. I think to myself that this isn't working, I'm not going to be able to keep this up and I talk myself out of it as an excuse to binge on chocolate. This time I'm going to stay the course. It occurred to me the other day that if I just followed a plan, without questioning it or tryin to tweak it, it would work and I would be slimmer. So here goes.....I'm going to try to have patience and perserverance.
Tomorrow I am going to plan my meals and go to the supermarket. I need to plan in an afternoon snack as afternoons are my real danger time as I tend to grab chocolate and coke around 4 pm and that leads into a full on sugar binge for the evening. I have a lot of work to do but I am determined to get there!
