Goodbye weight loss
All I can say right now is “WOW” It is just amazing, I am now two and a half stone lighter than I was when I started my weight loss journey back in October, goodbye weight loss, goodbye two and a half stone.
This is madness, I never in a million years had thought I’d get this far….But I have and I am doing a happy dance right now!
I have been sticking to plan as much as possible, yes I have had the odd what I call “naughty night” where a nice take-away or night out would be enjoyed, but how boring would my journey be if I didn’t.
I have been making a few changes to my day-to-day life since my last post:
Leaving the car at home and walking to work when I can.
I have been feeling more active so I have been having more active fun with the boys, this is something I am really enjoying.
Still going to the gym but spending that bit longer there.
Now the weather is better I have been enjoying bike rides with the kid’s.
Enjoying long walks.
The biggest help of all has been meal planning. Preparing meals in advance and freezing them has been a great help to me with being a working mum and not having a great deal of time for meal preparation.
I have made myself a little treat box called “syn bin” I would fill this up with my daily allowance of treats, once the box was empty I was then aware I was at my daily allowance, anything eaten after that I was then over that allowance. I find this helps me a great deal to help me keep on plan.
Lots of little changes that have helped me to continue my journey and receive this last night at group.
All these changes have helped me get to where I am at the moment along with attending group every week, everyone in group is so friendly and supportive whether it be a loss that week or even a gain, I have never felt judged or made to feel bad. Every week I have walked away from slimming world group feeling positive and with fantastic advice to help me through the week.
Some weeks I would get weighed and think oh no I have only lost 1 lb this week, but when I saw this at group I now think differently.
This is what lb of fat would look like.
I will no longer say “only a lb loss this week” again after seeing this.
I am really enjoying my journey with Slimming World (link added for anyone who may wish to search for a group local to them). I am now half way to reaching my target and would never of got anywhere near where I am now without their help. I am hoping to reach my target by my birthday in August, this would be my birthday gift to myself. How great would that be, saying goodbye weight loss, goodbye 5 stone for a birthday gift to myself, it would be amazing!
When I set myself this challenge to loose 5 stone it was something I thought would have taken me forever to achieve, so to get this far already has amazed me. Have you ever set yourself any challenges?
