My Ever So Slow Journey ..
So... I thought I would give this a bash, not really caring if anyone reads but I just need a place to vent every now and again.
I joined slimming world In June 2013 with a target of 5 Stone to lose, I was kind of at the end of my wit with my size and how my body was making me feel, I wanted my partner to find me more attractive (he was adamant that he did but I just wanted that reassurance for myself).
At the time and for two months after joining we were renting an apartment and had a holding fee on a house to be built when we decided to buy. My slimming world was going great and within the two months I lost a stone, I thought I had done quite well and in August we decided to move in with my OH parents, this was only going to be for a two/three months as the developer on our house was due to start building and would have it up in no time, So we could save some money for furniture and the likes.
Now - the development went bust and we had to find another house, we did and we got it sale agreed and loved it, november comes around still no house, something do do with the deeds or legal mumbo jumbo, solicitor is on the ball everything is all go, everyone promising it before christmas, its now heading to mid february and still no house, still waiting on whatever needs changed to be changed. AHHHH.
Ever since August I have only managed to get to a stone and a half, going pound on, pound off, holiday gain, on-off, on-off, christmas gain, same on-off as before.
I know I could do better I we were living on our own, sharing a small kitchen with another two adults and two dogs is frustrating, we have small limited space in the fridge and freezer and a set of those plastic storage drawer things for the likes of cereal, tins, sauces, pasta etc.
My OH Mum goes to the same SW class as I do, she joined a few weeks after me seeing how easy it was and she is easily reached her target. I think this is because our living with them hasn't really put them out or feel as cramped as we do. We rush in after work to make something quick for dinner as we don't want to told them up with their cooking. In our own house I was able to occupy myself with cleaning and washing etc where as here I don't really want to disturb them by turning on the hoover at 9pm while they watch tv (we have our own TV in the bedroom where I go after dinner to watch what I usually would) so them I am stuck upstairs with nothing to do but think about (and mostly go and eat) bad foods that then take me over my syns, just because I am feeling sorry for myself.
I know OH feels the same but for me it just feels a bit more uncomfortable, maybe if we had of moved in with my parents it would have been different as I feel like I wouldn't be intruding so much, but them it might leave the OH feeling how I do at the minute.
The sooner I get this house the better, better for my sanity, my relationship, my work and my weight loss.
Venting makes me feel a bit better, I think it is a bit of an excuse but I know once I am in my own house I can focus more.
Is there anyone else in the same situation or with any tips on what might help the remainder of my time there?
