A few words

A few words

I have recently been having a few words with myself since my last weigh-in, you may or may not know that I have been attending Slimming world since October 2014, since then there have been good weeks and there have been bad weeks. Last week saw a gain and I felt awful, I guess it was to be expected but I still felt bad and have since had a few words with myself.

I am thinking this gain came from a few naughty treats or possibly the past few weekends catching up with me…..Whoops! well it was needed and I really enjoyed letting my hair down for a while.

After having a few words with myself I have made a promise to myself to get back on track and get focused again. I would love to get to target for my birthday in August, this would be awesome and the best gift to myself ever, this would mean that I would need to lose 2 lb a week between now and my birthday (if no gains get in the way). This may sound easy for some and harder for others but all I can and WILL do is try my best, after all this girl loves a challenge.

My losses have been lowest 1/2 lb and my highest  5 lb in a week.  There have also been gains in-between these losses on the odd week here and there.

I have now been using my syn box a lot more as this slipped a bit. This is a box that I have been using to put all my daily allowance treats in (measured), when the box is empty I would then know that I was at my daily allowance of syns, I find this really helps me to keep track of what I have had that day.

So far I have lost 2 st 8 lbs and I really don’t want to ruin my weight loss by putting it back on. Since I have lost my weight that I have lost so far I already feel more healthier, happy and confident in myself and this is with only loosing half of what I want to lose.

So since I have had a few words with myself I made a promise to myself to get back on track, I went back to treating my weight loss like it was a first week again, used my syn box a lot more, I even put pictures on the fridge of before my journey and a more recent one, now I see these pictures everyday and see how far I have come so far, I also remembered my reasons for wanting to join Slimming World and that feeling of my first loss and how amazing I felt.

Moving forward a week and my weigh-in night, guess what it has all paid off I have gone and lost 4 lb this week and I feel amazing, yes I beat myself up a little over last weeks gain but I needed that kick up the bum to get me fully focused again.

The challenge is now on, I am going to try my best to get a minimum of 2 lb loss every week between now and August so I can be at my target weight for my birthday…..Fingers crossed!

This was me last June.

This was me this week. I’ve still a long way to go but I’m feeling much more healthier, confident and happy in myself, this is after 25 weeks.

    I’m so happy that I came across this post. My boyfriends mum has recently joined Slimming World and I shared this post with her which gave her more motivation to keep at it. I know of those moments where you slip up and have your good weigh ins and your bad. With all that I’ve heard about Slimming World, I might give it a try. Way to go with your progress and all the best!

  • There’s nothing wrong with rewarding yourself for such hard work. You’ve done absolutely fantastically and I’m sure you’ll continue to do so. Well done 🙂 xx
