5 weeks ago as a bag full of nerves, anticipation and determination, I walked into our local Slimming World Group on my own. I had been inspired by 2 people - a family friend who has lost 5 stone and a friend who has lost over 4 stone in a year. Her Instagram feed was full of real, good, healthy food and I thought to myself, if you can eat all that and lose weight I am going to give it a go.
As you may know I occasionally chat about my struggles with the pounds. As I mentioned only recently, I lost 3 stone on my own 2 years ago but half of it slowly crept back on and despite my various attempts to tackle it on my own, it just wasn't happening this time, so I needed some extra help and support.
By week 2 I achieved my 1/2 stone Award .......
and got Slimmer of the Week,
which was just the thing I needed to keep me motivated.
I've bought a White Stuff Jacket, something I could never do before as the sizes are on the smaller size. I can't do it up YET! but it's another thing to motivate me further.
I'm back to my daily walks around the park, come rain or shine and I'm eating loads and I mean loads of good, healthy food
Today I achieved my 1 Stone Award.
Today 5 weeks on, I am a Stone and 1/2 a pound lighter.
I feel very chuffed and determined to go a lot further. I have set a goal and I will just see how I far I go. I'm loving the plan and can see exactly how it works. I can eat loads and have not once felt hungry, quite the opposite, I sometimes wonder how I can eat so much and still lose weight. For me now, at this moment, it's working. I do worry it may suddenly stop and I won't know why but I will give it my best shot and see how far I can go!
Thank You Slimming World
