I've recently just joined Slimming World (Again...) and thought this time i'd write a diary as I go. This is the second time i've done SW, althought the first one was a complete half-hearted attempt. I think i lasted about 4 weeks, and lost a grand total of, wait for it.... 2lb. I know, I know, heroic attempt. Anyway, that was around 2 years ago, and have not only put the 2lb back on, but probably added about 2stone to keep it company. Thats an extra 2 stone on top of 2stone I shouldn't have had in the first place. Oops. .
Anyway, moving swiftly on. This time, something has changed. I actually want it. I mean seriously want it. Enough to make me not eat Chocolate or full fat coke, so pretty seriously want it. I'm not sure i had a "turning point", but I am fed up of buying bigger and bigger clothes (even my bank balance should thank me at the end of this!) and seriously fed up of eagerly awaiting pictures of nights out to be posted on facebook only to see I have had some sort of allergic reaction and swollen to 3 times my size in all the photos... .
So, back to Slimming World it is. I need to go somewhere where i'm weighed weekly, its the only think that will keep me on track. So off i trotted (Sis-in-law with baby weight to lose in tow), paid my sign up, hopped on the scales and ouch. I could not believe I weighed that much. That weight that has crept on over the last couple of years bought a family to lodge in with it.
Anyway, since then i've lost 1lb, 2lb and 2lb again last night. So, another 2lb next week and a half stone award for me . I really want to loose 2 stone by my holiday in June - I would love to wear a bikini and not worry about causing a minor tsunami when I get in the pool. then hopefully another 2 Stone by 2014. I think I am going to have to accept that my body is just one of those that looses weight gradually, even though I would love to see some 4/5lb losses, I Have to be realistic in the fact that may not happen. I think thats what made me give up last time.
So, onwards and upwards (or downwards on the scales!). Oh also, Hubby has said if i loose 2 stone by the end of August this year, we can go to Vegas again... so... it has to be done!
PS... I miss chocolate.
