    From Fat Matt to... well, we'll see!

    Hi everyone!

    Thought I'd start this diary as, well, I have feelings I'll post my progress in the hopes that one day, I can look back and be proud of how far I've come. I'll also post when I just want to get something off my chest.

    Started my Slimming World journey on the 30th September, so been doing this now for just over 3 months. In that time, I've lost 2 stone 3lbs.

    I'm happy with the rate I'm losing weight, but I just want to FEEL slimmer! That's the day I'm waiting for, and it's been getting me down. I've become obsessive over my slimming journey, and at the moment, life feels like a countdown until mid September.

    And the reason for that is something that really helps to keep me motivated. I'll be going to Japan for a year as part of my degree. It's an amazing opportunity, something I will never get again, and I want to completely enjoy it, without my weight holding me back.

    Added a progress photo. This was taken after losing 1 stone 13lbs (15 stone 3lbs), and the one on the left was taken the day after I started (17 stone 2lbs). It’s strange, sometimes I see a difference in the mirror, sometimes I don’t. In some photos I see a difference, some I don’t. So hopefully in the next couple of months, no matter when I look in the mirror and what photos I look at, I’ll say without doubt ‘You’re doing well Matt!’
    Mind the awful photo on the left in both pics, I’m sure it’s an unwritten law to have a god awful, miserable before photo

    Thanks everyone, didn't expect this many replies so quickly

    Zafira, I go to Japan in mid-September, so have just over 8 months to get to target. It'll be tricky but it's definitely possible!

    I'm home for 4-6 weeks whilst it's the uni holidays. It's so much harder sticking to plan! Just eaten a 21 syn Starbucks Rocky Road, so spent 26 syns today :S When I'm at uni, there's no junk food in the house because we all buy for ourselves, whereas at home, there's chocolate everywhere. My friend gave me 10 Rocky Roads yesterday, so I took the one I've just eaten and asked my mum to give away the rest. Good bloody job really.

    At my home group, weighing day is Thursdays, but because of Christmas and New Year, group was on Tuesday instead. Waiting those extra 2 days is killing me!

    Getting to your target by September is definitely doable! You have done really well so far.

    It is difficult being surrounded by temptation. But don't beat yourself up over the Starbucks, or anything else you have had over Christmas. Giving away the rest of the rocky roads was a good idea, out of sight, out of mind

    I am curious, what is your degree in?

    Thanks!

    I underestimated just how difficult it would be. Makes me glad I'm away for half the year. Another example was the other night, dad brought home food from the fish and chip shop. He left an open bag of chips right in front of me, so couldn't resist. I didn't have much, but I always hate when I can't control myself and have unplanned syns, especially when you can only guess at how much you've had.

    My degree is in Japanese I do the language and history/culture side. I'm there for the language, there's a lot more focus on the studies side than I'd like there to be, aha.

    Exams in less than 3 weeks, so much revision to do!

    Unplanned syns happen All you can do is move on and make better choices the next day. Plus, there is no enjoyment in being good all the time

    Haha, your degree makes sense! My cousin was meant to go to Japan as part of his degree in Computer Animation (or something like that), but it fell through. It looks like an amazing place to visit.

    Time off from 'routine' is always difficult , but even though you've gone over , you're aware and still carried on where possible , that's good, don't lose focus, or have guilt, we're all the same on that front

    you're target def seems doable for September
    And learning Japanese?....that sounds really difficult!
    Well done!

    Aw thanks again guys. Had a Chinese on New Years as a planned cheat day, so have been cutting down my syns since to lessen the damage on the scales, then I go and do that :P Will just focus especially hard on these next few days til weigh in.

    Damn, sucks for your cousin! Would be crushed if this fell through, but it's guaranteed as long as I pass. And as with weight loss, I know I can do more than just pass as long as I put the work in

    Trust me, it is, aha! Love learning it, but it has its boring moments. My exam will largely be translating Japanese text on nutrition/nutritional education. There's no escaping xD

    Went out for a meal tonight. I still feel scared for weigh in, even if I've been good, whenever I go out for a meal!

    I went to Hungry Horse and had 1 Southern Fried Chicken Skewer (9.5 syns), 1 Chicken Skewer (free) with new potatoes and BBQ sauce (4.5 syns, I think!). Had a tiny nibble on an onion ring, and should probably add a couple of syns for any oil on the grill the skewers would have been cooked on. 16 syns for a meal out that was really tasty, happy with that!

    Saw your pictures on here on Sunday and it gave me the inspiration needed to join! I went to my first ever group on Monday evening and it was great. Just need to muddle through this week while I get my head around everything and hopefully see some loss next week.
