Hi all, so i'm here to start my journey..... well thats not strictly true.... i am here to restart my journey, a journey i have started and stopped too many times to count. I am determined that this will be the last restart i do though and i am going to make this the start of my final journey to a skinnier me.
I have always chosen Slimming world as my diet of choice because....well because it's amazing and works for me.... when i stick to it.
As my username suggests my name is Lisa, i am a mum of twin boys, recently divorced but very happily in a new relationship. I managed to lose nearly 3 stone the last time i did SW, which was just before my wedding. Since then i have had twin boys which i think it is safe to say has completely changed my body in everyway possible. I find it alot harder to lose weight since having the boys than i ever did before. Before i could have 4 good days and 3 bad in a week and still have a good weightloss. Now i have to be alot more strict with myself in order to lose weight.
I have decided to start a diary because i don't really have time to go to group. I always liked the group environment and feeling like i was accountable to someone for the week i had. I'm hoping that coming here and having to document my week will give me the same kind of feeling and motivation.
I haven't managed to weigh myself just yet as i have no scales, but i am getting some after work today so will do an official starting weight later on.
I have piled on the weight since having my boys. I just never seemed to find the time to cook anything healthy and settled for convenience everytime. Thanks to the breakdown of my marriage and the beginning of a new relationship i have managed to put on even more weight. You know how it is at the start of a relationship, you are out all the time, going for meals, cinema with snacks etc..... but enough is enough. No more excuses now, i need to lose the weight!
Ideally i would like to lose a minimum of 5 stone. This is based on the last weight i was at a SW group around 2 months ago. Until i weigh myself officially i'm not sure of the exact figure.
I am going to set myself mini targets so it all feels a bit more managable.
I have been doing it again since Monday and i'm feeling very motivated. I am being well prepared and have the full support of my fella who wants to do it with me. He doesn't really have that much to lose but is doing it more for support. I also think it's because when i am doing SW properly i tend to cook a variety of really yummy meals rather than just bog standard crap!
So here we go..... lets do this!!!!
