Two years ago I joined slimming world. I loved it, found it easy to follow and stick to, the weight fell off! I got to target in 3 months (I lost 1.5 stone) and felt great about myself. Then it started creeping up again. A little at first, and i would work hard to get it back down again, but gradually I was "just" 1lb Over target, then 2... Now 2yrs later I am heavier than when I originally joined! I am so angry with myself and I hate how big I am again.
I need to do this again. I know how, I just need to stick to it. My motivation is a recent video I posted on FB ("ice bucket challenge") where I was appalled at how enormous I am! I nearly didn't post it but I had to because my children are in it doing their challenge too. I am so scared someone is going to comment and ask when my baby is due, my stomach is enormous I def look pregnant! (I am definitely not) If I feel the need to binge or go off plan I am just going to watch that video!!
I'm not able to rejoin a group at the moment, for various reasons but mainly financial, and i will be doing SW on a budget much stricter than when I did it two years ago, which worries me a bit as I don't think I will be able to afford Alpen bars, muller lights, etc.
Anyway, thought I would post here to mark my beginning the journey again, and to confirm to myself that today is the start of a new chapter.
Off to read ALL THE THREADS to remind myself of all the yummy recipes and get in the zone. I can do this. I CAN do this. Right?!
