    Ruth Elizabeth's Final Stand

    Hello! *waves*

    Have been around for a bit, here and there and did almost get where I wanted to be! Then I got a boyfriend, fell over and ruined my knees and got far too comfortable. Blah blah blah excuses excuses. Basically, I have never got to my goal and one of the reasons for this was that I don't think that my head was in the right place.
    I am 25 in August, I have two holidays booked this year and for once in my life, I am settled.
    I have recently left my agonising and silly shift job where I was permanently on my feet (and run ragged) to a nice Monday-Friday office based job (bliss) and have the support of my very lovely boyfriend.

    I am sick of:
    - my body aching after overeating
    -seeing myself in photographs
    -the weight and inches I have gained after my bad fall
    -how I look in my clothes
    -how I feel in my self: indigestion, heart burn, IBS, the list is endless...
    -failing/giving in/being tempted
    -worrying that my OH will leave me because of how I look (not that he will but my ex did :/ )
    -worrying that people are watching me eat and commenting on what I eat
    -being unable to buy a regular bra from a shop that fits me, as my back size is now so big and also my front, that I am squeezing myself into clothes and underwear that's too small for me.
    -finally (sorry for TMI) I've started turning the lights off in the bedroom department, not a habit I intend to keep going with...

    So, here I am. I am Ruth, 24, from North Yorkshire.
    Come 19:00 on Wednesday 7th Jan I will be at my local Slimming World group, where I will buy a 12 week pass to take me to my first holiday in Center Parcs with my family and OH. I haven't a clue what I weigh as I don't do scales at home (recipe for disaster) but I am here to take it nice and slowly. I will lose, possibly gain and hit some tough times but I really want and need this. It's completely my time and I am here to stay.

    Feel free to say hello always keen to have a chat!

    Ruth

    Hi Zafira!

    Wow you're doing really well!

    Thanks for posting I am looking forward to it, been milling it around in my head for a bit and when a flyer came through my door the other day I just thought, that's it, enough is enough.

    Just the little things will keep me going to begin with I think, lack of bloating etc, generally getting rid of the list

    Looking forward to having a look at your diary, I can see the link so will have a look.

    Have a fab Saturday!!

    Ruth

    Hi Ruth, loving the sick of list! Centre Parcs is a great target as you'll feel far more able to enjoy the facilities with a smaller body, especially if you're planning to use a bike. Good luck!

    Bit of a funny weekend so far! Moving into my parents house on Friday/Saturday next week (we are moving house but there's a week's gap between) rather excited as it means more walking to the bus stop to get to work, and also I have planned the meals for the rest of this week so that I know what is being kept in the cupboard!

    Feeling positive and to be honest, I can't wait for Wednesday.... OH has found lots of lovely recipes that are all slimming world friendly which is great!

    Just need to make sure that I am prepared food wise when living away as I know what my parents are like!!

    Hope that you all had a good weekend!!

    Just got the app on my phone! So much easier. We had a meal with my OHs parents which was sausages and parsnip/carrot mash which wasn't bad as they were boiled then grilled sausages but I am so full and I hate that feeling
    Most of our house is packed up now, can't wait to move out. So much happening at once but worth it

    So uncomfortable in my clothes too, excited to get started and kick myself into touch. Wednesday can't come soon enough although I'm not looking forward to looking at the scales....

    Thank you yeah work today for me too
    Well your stats are fab!! Do you work regular days and find it helps to be in a routine? I've never lost weight whilst doing a job like I have now. Same hours etc, used to shifts and struggling to eat! I'm sure it will be easier, means I can always have dinner at home!!

    Making a slight start today! Can't remember everything 're the plan but anything is better than nothing, especially when using up food deliberately!! Have got:

    Cornflakes with 1% milk
    Coffee with 1% milk
    Peppermint Tea x3
    Baked Beans
    Chai Tea x3
    Tea?!- possibly chicken curry and brown rice!
    Frozen Grapes
