Bring on a slimmer me!
I’ve been Battling the Bulge for most of my life but since having my son in June 2014 I joined Slimming World again in January 2015. In May I wrote the post Slimming Progress, I’d lost two stone but was struggling with motivation. Since then I moved into the Halfway House, which was a good 25 minute drive from my Slimming World group and I completely fell off the wagon, so to speak.
Last week I went shopping to get a new dress for a night out and I was upset to find that the size 14 clothes were a bit tight and I actually ended up buying a size 16 just because I wanted something new to wear. This was the kick up the bum I needed to get myself back to group and last Monday (10th) I re-joined to find that I had put on half a pound short of a stone. It was the Woman of the Year party and hearing other ladies weight loss stories really inspired me. I thought “Well I might have put a stone on, but I’m still a stone lighter than I was at Christmas and I’ve only got 1 stone 9 pounds to target so, if I’ve lost two stone before, I can do it again.” Despite my husband being off work and us having a few days out and, therefore, some little treats, but I still weighed in 6lb lighter today!
I was so pleased with my weight loss and I feel so much better for eating clean again. It’s spurred me on this week, even thought I have a night out, a family BBQ and a birthday surprise for a friend, I will make good choices and I will have another good loss next Monday!
