I've been here before and now I'm back. I started SW in November 2012 and over the course of a year I went from 13st 8lb to 10st 6lb. I stopped going to class in November 2013 and decided that I was happy with my weight and just wanted to maintain. I haven't done too badly, in the 5 months that I've 'gone it alone' I've gone from 10st 6lb to 10st 10.5lb (weighed this morning). I've decided now though that I don't want to run the risk of gaining any more and really want to get down to 10st so I'm restarting properly today.
I won't be going to class, I'll just be doing it from home. I'm also not going to be unrealistic, I know that I can go off track at the weekend but I'll flexi-syn when necessary and I'll save syns through the week if possible to make up for it. I also refuse to beat myself up if I simply fall of the wagon for a time, I'll just concentrate on getting back on.
I probably haven't picked the best time to restart as I'm going away on Sunday for two nights (to Alton Towers ) but I don't want to do the whole "I'll start next week"thing, because, as many of us know, next week never comes! I'm going to just do what I can which is better than nothing I suppose.
I plan to post my daily diary so any comments and suggestions are welcome. I'll also try and post pictures of my meals where possible to try and shame me into actually cooking nice food and not choosing the lazy options all the time. Since I don't go to class, I'm know "in the know" as much as I was so if anything has changed and I'm doing something wrong, please let me know.
