My Weight Loss Journey
In this week’s blog I just wanted to give you a little update on what I’ve been up to, and today I’m talking about my weight loss journey since November 2016.
For the past 7 months I’ve been on a weight loss program with my local slimming club. Prior to joining the club I’d gradually been putting on the pounds and knew I needed to lose weight. I could do all the things I enjoyed doing, but I was finding it difficult to fit into the clothes I liked, and my fitness levels were poor so I was starting to feel not quite myself.
A good friend of mine suggested I join her at the slimming club. Not one to turn down a challenge I went along with her, a little nervous but with an open mind.
My first weigh-in was a bit of a shock! I weighed far more than I’d predicted, and that hurt, really hurt. I stayed to listen to the talk; which the coach does every week and decided I’d give their plan a go. What did I have to lose other than a few pounds?!
The first week didn’t seem too difficult, so when I was at the following weeks meeting I thought I’d have lost a couple of pounds. Imagine my surprise when I found that I’d lost 7.5lbs! I was astounded. Just goes to show how many naughty things I was eating usually!
Week on week I’ve continued to lose weight. Sure, there are some weeks I don’t lose anything, and every now and again I put on half a pound or so usually due to special occasions and holidays. I think you should allow yourself a few treats as long as you get right back on the diet horse.
Seven months in I’m still losing weight and today I went to my meeting and found I’d lost 2.5lbs this week. I feel so much healthier and I’m fitting into clothes I haven’t done for years which is another bonus!
I would love to hear your comments, and please share your weight loss journey with me.
