The last time I opened my blog to post it was the 6th of November, I was loving slimming world and had lost 2st 2lb, I was regularly exercising and feeling really good about the way I looked and my increased energy. My net loss is now 1st 6lb and I don’t feel so great. over the past three months I haven’t gained slowly the 10lbs of weight I have fluctuated up and down loosing some weeks and gaining others, my lowest weigh in during this time recorded a weight loss of 2st 8lbs meaning I have (in net terms) gained about a stone since my lightest weigh in at slimming world. I thought it was about time I came clean and made amends!
reasons for gains:
1) stopped doing plan properly. I was skipping meals and getting really hungry and then eating something high fat or sugar for energy.
2) I started guessing not weighing and measuring
3) I went OTT for Christmas, then epiphany, and still now in lent! :S
4) Luke went off plan too and we kind of encouraged each other to continue thus.
5) I wasn’t blogging or keeping a food diary
6) I have stopped enjoying food, I haven’t been cooking or taking time, I’ve been working stupid hours.
So it seems like I know where I have gone wrong, I’m not blaming anyone but myself so why is it so hard to get back on track? there’s no doubt that I felt better when i was on plan and loosing weight and that I do want to loose weight.
I have the mostly lovely Slimming world group but I still feel a bit embarrassed about going back. Entirely a problem in my own head, everyone at group would be lovely. – I also can’t afford to pay all the back fees
Also I feel like I have to lose a stone before I start loosing weight again. I’m in two minds about starting again and doing a rejoin but that would mean starting again at zero and ignoring the fact that I have already lost some weight.
Get my life and my head in order and re join slimming world on Saturday.
Monday: clean and declutter my house
Tuesday: re read my slimming world packs
Wednesday: last blow out (its my birthday)
Thursday: write food plans for the next few weeks
Friday: clean kitchen top to bottom and throw out all ‘synful’ food.
Saturday: rejoin slimming world and go food shopping.
Thank you all for your continued support. If you have any ideas of how to make this journey more sustainable I would love to know. I need to make life long changes not just have something to obsess over for a few months.
