A Newlywed's Weight Loss Journey
I have had a few false starts, and diaries before but I thought I would start afresh and put a line under it!
So hello I'm Featherweight ( or Cat) I am 22 and have been married for 16 days! I got married at 15 stone 10 pounds, after losing 1 stone 13 pounds on slimming world! I didn't start Slimming world for the wedding, I started purely for me. There is no end in sight, just a life plan in place. I kind of like it this way - I'm not thinking oh when I reach XX I can eat whatever I like; I am retraining my self if you will!
Attachment 126308This is me and my wonderful Husband on our Wedding day (7/2/2014).
I started SW on December 2 weighing in at 17 stone and 9 pounds. My losses have been as follows:
Start (2/12) - 17st 9lbs
Week 1 (9/13) - 7.5lbs
Week 2 (16/12) - 0.5lb
Week 3 (23/12) - STS
Week 4 (30/12) - 6lbs
Week 5 (6/1) - 4lbs
Week 6 (13/1) - 2.5lbs
Week 7 (20/1)- STS Hen Weekend Away!
Week 8 (27/1) -4lbs
Week 9 (3/2) -2.5lbs
Week 10 (10/2) - Honeymoon :)
Week 11 (17/2) - STS
I am really happy with my progress so far! I have some how managed to lose or maintain the whole way through - even over Christmas, New Year, my Hen Weekend Away, and most importantly my Wedding and Honeymoon!
I feel like I am making progress this time! This is not my first foray into Slimming World, but I got up the courage to join a group this time. I feel like the moral support and accountability is working for me. Also I never weigh at home now, which is really helping my mental health as I would obsess over the numbers. I think this is the longest I have stayed on Slimming World, and to be honest I think my head is in the right place now.
Oh and exciting news - my Husband has joined as well :D. It is currently his first week and he is trying really hard. It will make life so much easier when I don't have to watch him munch away. I do feel for him though as he is a chef, and needs to taste some of the food he cooks so syn keeping will be hard for him.
I plan on keeping account of life in general in this diary as well as my food intake and syns. I weigh in on a Tuesday night and always stay for IMAGE therapy.
My next goal is my 2 stone sticker, which is only a pound away! My ultimate goal just now is to hit 9 stone 7lbs - which is another 6 stone 3lbs to get to . I would love to get there in a year, but that may be too ambitious so I am more than happy to take each day as it comes!
I will do my best to post daily and keep myself motivated for the whole journey!
