Sarah Butterfly's Slimming World Journey
Hi everyone :) I'm making a weight loss diary as tomorrow is the day I join Slimming World! I've found a morning class so there's no excuses for not starting straight away with healthy eating!
I'm excited, and nervous, and hoping that this time I get my head in gear and lose the weight. I tried WW a year ago and I found that I kept trying to bend the rules, and cheat. I lost about 14lbs but it took me a year to do it! I'd often lose some weight and the next 3 or 4 weeks would be gains or STS because I'd be telling myself that I deserved treats for losing 1lb!
I'll find out tomorrow what my weight is. I think it's probably about 13st 10lbs, and when I joined WW it was 14st 7lbs so I've kept some of it off. My target is 10st 10lbs so a target of 3 stone to lose which I hope to reach in 2015 by the end of the year.
I piled on about 4 stone in recent years due to struggling with depression and anxiety. I am a big emotional eater and I need to stop rewarding myself with food, or eating when I feel any kind of emotion! I think that's going to be the hardest part.
I'm excited to start and make new friends! I'm keen to try cooking new things and I've been looking up lots of yummy SW recipes.
I think that's everything.... so, onwards and downwards!
