Hi, I'm 27 and this is the second time (and final time) round for me on SW! I originally started SW on 31/12/13, I did well losing around 2-3lbs a week then after a few months I started to slip up, I would miss a few weeks at group then go get weighed and find out I have gained 5lbs (oh how I hate you 5lbs!), then I would spend the week living on water, lettuce and chicken breast, fast forward to the next weeks weigh in and it's bye bye 8lbs. The following week I go off plan stay away from group for a few weeks and it all repeats over and over again, I say goodbye and stop going and eating SW in April 2014. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago and I am back but this time I actually want to reach target. I wasn't quite in the zone the last time so didn't give the plan 100%, but I am now officially in "the zone". I still have the same goals I have always had, to drop 2-3 stone, to shred my body (my belly in particular) of fat, to look "normal" and healthy, to look nothing like the dreaded photo that was taken of me. Yes the dreaded photo, I am sure we have all been there! It was taken by my mum when I was visiting her on Wed, there I am slightly bent over and there "it" is, the belly, the ass, the hips, it's all there (beneath my clothing thank god!) but there is no missing it! There is also the fact that when I disappear out of a room my all I can hear are my parents "hasn't she gained weight", "did you see her belly?" OMG I am mortified!! I also took the kids to visit their other grandparents (in-laws), and my M.I.L cannot stop staring at my belly (cringe). I was sooooo relieved when I got home that day, my husband was home and the first thing he says to me is "that's a lovely top, you look wonderful" I could have tackled him to the ground and snogged him for that, I didn't though for fear I may crush him! That "top" from that day onwards is now called "the fat top", the next time I wear it I want to be able to get lost in it, It's lovely to know my husband loves me at whatever size and shape I am, but I think I have gotten too comfortable. I would like to be a stone lighter before I see my folks and in-laws again, and i'd like to reach target in time for the new year! I started back in group last Tuesday, and after this weeks "crisis" I will never go back to my old ways.
I have been on plan all week (weigh-in is tomorrow morning) and I am hoping for 2lbs off, well to be honest even half a pound will have me jumping for joy! I am having a red day today, tea and All Bran(hexB) for breakfast, off to plan lunch in a min then going out with the kids to the park for some body magic!
